Awards and Honors - Page Nine
I am extremely proud to display the awards and honors this site has earned.
We were featured in Yahoo!'s Global Village "What's New In Cyberspace?"
and were named as one of Yahoo!'s Picks of the Week for July 14, 1997.
"While some people are stuck in the past, the folks at Topher's Breakfast Cereal
Character Guide seem to be stuck at the breakfast table. They've compiled a veritable
smorgasbord of cereal mascots, including Tony the Tiger, the Quaker Oats Man, and
the Trix Rabbit. Characters are divided by manufacturer and include graphics and
brief histories. If you're like us, you have trouble distinguishing Snap! from Crackle!,
and you occasionally forget just what Dig'Em Frog thinks you should eat to start your day."
"With the discovery of this site, we can stop hanging out in the cereal aisle (the store
began to call it 'loitering') whenever we're plagued with such questions. We can now
relax knowing that Snap! is the one in the baker's hat, although we admit to being
somewhat concerned that a character named 'Robo-Squirrel' has joined Sugar Bear,
Cap'n Crunch, and the gang in the cereal business."
We hit The Charts! - Guide to the Best of the Best
for the Week of July 15 - 22, 1997.
"Topher's Breakfast Cereal Character Guide: Over at Yahoo! this week,
simultaneous awards to The Polyester Network and Style Experts collided in a
matter-antimatter fashion and exploded, leaving us quaking in fear under the breakfast
table. We emerged after some time to discover this absolutely silly but very fun site
dedicated to all those cereal mascots that made Saturday-morning TV a nutritional nightmare.
We're tickled that someone else remembers Freakies! One question, though: Isn't there
something redundant about the phrase 'fictional cereal mascot?'
We received Hope's Award for Site Excellence.
"You have a great place for kids. I am pleased to present you with
Hope's Award for Site Excellence, as my appreciation for all your work.
Thanks, and keep up the great work."
We received a nice mention in the popular "I Hate Computers" on-line Newsletter,
and our site is now on the IH8PCS Approved List available from their main site.
"Are cereal characters your heros?
Then Topher's Breakfast Cereal Character Guide is your WWW site.
Check out the brief histories and graphics of cereal mascots like Tony the Tiger,
the Quaker Oats Man, and the Trix Rabbit. But who is Robo-Squirrel,
and what right does he have to join Sugar Bear and Captain Crunch?"
Vol. 4, No. 24, 07/18/97 by Thomas R. Fasulo
Topher's Breakfast Cereal Character Guide was recognized
as the WorldVillage Family Site of the Day for July 18, 1997!
"Tony the Tiger. Captain Crunch. The Leprechaun. Snap, Crackle and Pop. The list goes on
and on. If you recognize these names, then you will love today's site. It you don't, well, then
you are in for a treat. The site, Topher's Breakfast Cereal Character Guide, is a trip down
memory lane. It is a site dedicated to the history and chronicling of morning breakfast cereals."
"Here you will find just about any face that ever graced the cover of a box of Post Toasties,
Maypo, Corn Flakes, Rice Krispies, in fact, just about any brand and name of cereal can be
found here. Even fictional ones are listed, along with their characters. I saw quite a few
that I remember eating, along with a few that really blew me away, thinking I would never
have to see them on a box of cereal."
"There are links to several other morning cereal sites, which leads to all sorts of
interesting area, including the 50 Best TV Commercials of All Time. This is a fun site here.
You can see the sociological development of our civilization through these cereals.
Characters and themes that were popular as recent as 15 years ago would not be politically
correct today. But it is still a fun,nostalgic site to visit. Be sure to bring your kids."
CyberConch Zine - "The Cyber Voice of the Conch Republic"
Selected Us As "What's Kewl on the Net".
"This guide to cereal box cartoon characters will take you back to the time
that breakfast foods actually had the word 'sugar' in their titles."
