Sunny Jim

Sunny Jim

H-O Oats Force Flakes (~1900)
Sunny Jim, one of the first fictional ad characters, was a mousey looking grandfatherly character with spectacles, and a top hat, wore a high-collared, red-tailed, coat and carried a cane. He wore his hair braided in a pig-tail. Force Flakes were a whole wheat flake.

"Whatever you say, wherever you've been, you can't beat the cereal, that raised Sunny Jim!"
"High 'oer the fence leaps Sunny Jim, Force is the food that raises him."

A coin was isued as a cereal premium. The front of the coin had an image of Sunny Jim's head, the word "FORCE" and a motto which read, "Bring back prosperity with Sunny Jim". The flip side of the coin read, "Forget that times are tough and grim, cheer up, and smile with Sunny Jim." and "Good Luck. Good Health."

The cereal itself was described on the box as being "Toasted Whole Wheat Flakes with harvest bran removed. Deliciously flavored with sugar, salt and malt syrup".

In (circa) 1877 Force Foods produced a silver spoon with an imprint of Sunny Jim holding a book that reads "FORCE".

Homestat Farm Maypo
Marky (1956), a four-year-old brat decked out in a cowboy outfit, couldn't get enough maple-flavored oatmeal. "I want my Maypo!" A history of Maypo and four Marky Maypo commercials can be found at the Homestat Farms website.

Originally owned by Maltex Co (a Hueblein subsidiary), the brand was acquired by Standard Milling Company (The Uhlmann Co of KC, MO) when they purchased the total assets including inventories of the Maypo/Maltex division from Heublein as of June 1, 1967. Standard at that time owned Wheatena Corp, having purchased and assumed operations November 1, 1965. The Uhlmann's owned the Wheatena's, Maypo and Maltex until 1985 when they sold them to American Home Foods, later renamed International Home Foods. The brands were subsequently sold to ConAgra in August of 2000. In October 2001 it was bought by Homestat Farm and they have reintroduced the cereal.

Chocolate-flavored and Banana-flavored Maypo were also available. A commercial for Banana-flavored Maypo may have featured a frightening personage called "The Banana Man". If you have an image, please email me.
