Nimbus the GreatMoonies
|Nimbus the Great was a TV space hero in The Jetsons cartoon series. Elroy Jetson was a big fan of Nimbus.|
|In the animated movie Animalympics there is an alligator named Bolt Jenkins who does a commercial for his new cereal called, "Gecko Flakes". When he pours milk into the bowl of cereal, little geckos start crawling out. It has an instrumental theme song as well. Billy Crystal does several of the voices.|

|ABC-TV's 1982 "New Odd Couple" sported a box of Sugar Things. In one episode, Oscar spills half of it on the table as he's trying to pour it into his bowl.|
The MatrixTastee Wheat (Tasty Wheat)
|Tastee Wheat, sometimes spelled or alluded to as "Tasty Wheat" is a fictional breakfast cereal from the "Matrix" series of movies. It is first mentioned in a scene in "The Matrix" (1999), in which the crew of the Nebucadnezzar is eating breakfast...|
Mouse: "Do you know what it really reminds me of? Tastee Wheat. Did you ever eat Tastee Wheat?"
Switch: "No, but technically, neither did you."
Thus Tastee Wheat is doubly fictional, since even in the context of the movie, this cereal is a computer generated fiction, like everything else in the Matrix.
Tastee Wheat is also alluded to in "Matrix: Revolutions" (2003). In a scene in this third movie in the trilogy, a poster-sized print ad for Tastee Wheat is displayed on the wall of the "train station". (Special thanks to Rob)
Saturday Night LiveColon Blow
Little Chocolate Donuts
Cracklin' Oat Flakes---with Xtasy!
|Saturday Night Live was famous for its professional-looking fictional ads. Sometimes only the audience laughter gave away the ads as false.|
Colon Blow featured Phil Hartman, as a regular guy ready to eat breakfast cereal, sitting on a chair that keeps building higher and higher with bowls of Colon Blow as an unseen announcer vividly illustrates how many bowls of conventional fiber cereal it would take to equal the fiber in just one bowl of Colon Blow. If that wasn't enough, you can also try Super Colon Blow. (The image shown was sent to us. It appears to be a killer bee eating a bowl off-stage.)
Quarry featured Jane Curtain as a caring mother serving a really natural cereal to "her family". She serves them bowls of rocks mined from a quarry, which they pour milk over and eat. The crunching of rocks is so loud that it drowns out any conversation.
"Little Chocolate Donuts: The Breakfast of Champions" featured John Belushi as an overweight jock shown winning a number of Olympic events. (It was a parody of Bruce Jenner and the old Wheaties boxes).
Cracklin' Oat Flakes---with Xtasy! featured Will Ferrell and Ana Gasteyer. He was all out of Cracklin' Oat Flakes, so his darling wife gave him new Cracklin' Oat Flakes---with Xtasy!
Other SNL cereals included "Thirtysomethings".
Muppets From SpaceKap'n Alphabet
|Kap'N Alphabet, a colorful and fruity alphabet-shaped cereal, was featured in Jim Henson Production's movie "Muppets From Space". When Gonzo sat down to eat a eat a bowl of cereal, he received a message from space which the cereal appeared to magically spell by itself.|
|Rap/hip-hop artist Dr. Dre can be seen on a box of Weedies cereal in the movie "Don't Be A Menace To South Central While Drinking Your Juice In The Hood". (Probably not a movie for young family members).|
Dr. KatzPanda Puffs
|Panda Puffs is the favorite cereal of Dr. Katz's son on Comedy Central's animated series Dr. Katz.|
|The New Adventures of Mighty Mouse, circa 1985, "Mighty's Benefit Plan" episode was a bizarre parody of Alvin and the Chipmunks. The Dave Seville character is constantly spewing out mouthfuls of O'Horrids --- which look a lot like little oat rings.|
The New Adventures of Mighty Mouse, circa 1990, featured Bilkos cereal which had a Sargent Bilko caricature on the box.
Cinnamon Toast Crunch AdHealth Pellets
|General Mills features a fictional cereal called Health Pellets in its ads for Cinnamon Toast Crunch. It begins with a guy at home before work (there's a second one where he's already at work) in his business suit eating cereal. The box on the table is titled "Health Pellets". A giant hand comes into the picture, strips off his suit and replaces it with a casual clothing. It also replaces his business accessories with recreational equipment. While this is going on, the announcer states that just because you're grown up, doesn't mean that you have to be a grown up all the time (or something to that effect). The hand also replaces the cereal box with Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal.|
|When animated character Sunny jumps off the bottle of Sunny Juice and starts hawking the qualities of the juice, the kids and mother become terrified. They take off running, and the sun hops off the table saying, "What's wrong with you people? I'm full of sunshiny goodness! Hehehe!" The mother trips and falls. Just as the sun leaps in the air, but before he lands on the mother's back, the scene splits to the Sprite commercial: "Don't drink something because a cartoon character tells you to. Obey your thirst. Drink Sprite."|
The Three StoogesN'yuk-N'yuks
|N'yuk-N'yuks "The Breakfast of Stooges" is apparently featured in The 3 Stooges' 1962 feature film The Three Stooges In Orbit. The boys host a television cooking program sponsored by a cereal manufacturer (name unknown). The sponsor is unhappy with the Stooges' program and they plan to produce a new cartoon show to please him. Their efforts lead them to adventures with a friendly inventor, a nifty combination helicopter/tank/submarine, Martians named Ogg and Zogg, and saving the planet.|
Anyhow the show is sponsored by The Nyuk Nyuk Cereal Company. There are stacks of the cereal boxes on the stage. The box has a cereal bowl on the front filled with Nyuk Nyuks, which look like corn flakes, and in a plain bold text, the box reads "N'YUK N'YUKS"
Filboid StudgeFilboid Studge
|Filboid Studge, possibly the world's worst-tasting breakfast cereal, was featured in the short story by Saki (a.k.a Hector Hugh Munro) "Filboid Studge: The Story of a Mouse that Helped". Of note, Warner Brothers included an ad for Filboid Studge (painted onto the left-field stadium wall) in their Bugs Bunny cartoon short "Baseball Bugs" (1945). Another reason to love the old Warner Brothers pieces!|
Sugarlips Co."Fu Man Chews"
|This interesting cereal (1985) was spotted in the movie "Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge" starring Freddie Kruger.|
|Branimaniacs was featured on the Animaniancs television show. Once with the original jingle and then the other time was during the "65th Anniversary Special" where it cropped up several times in the show during the "commercials". (The premise of the episode was that the main characters had been around for many years and it was a TV anniversary/awards show. The cereal was a "sponsor"). The jingle may have gone something like this:|
Nutritionally it lacks!
This cereal attacks
all of your digestive tracks.
Eat Branimanny (my stomach's in painy!)
Caroline In The CitySweet Carolines
|Caroline, played by Lea Thompson in "Caroline in the City", is a comic strip artist who gets to have a cereal named after her comic strip. The cereal was called: "Sweet Carolines"... marshmallow shaped city objects and puffed wheat (which kept reminding her of a certain female anatomy).|
|Fegan Floop, played by Alan Cumming in the 2001 movie "Spy Kids", appeared on boxes of Floops cereal. The cereal was one of a large number of Floops merchandise items based upon the popular children's TV show featured in Spy Kids hosted by Fegan Floop. The box was yellow and looked like Fruit Loops.|
|The full poster brags about how "Spamalot" now has more nuts and more flakes than before.|
|Captain Sarcastic was the promoter of Mighty-Os on an animated short called Grinning Evil Death (parts 1 and 2) done for MTV's Liquid Television project. It can be found on the MTV Wet Shorts DVD or VHS.|
ToadsKrispy Toads / Krunchy Toads
|Seen in a 2000 commercial for DayQuil medicine. It was called either Krispy Toads or Krunchy Toads. The commercial starts with a woman in a bathrobe, who does not appear to be completely awake. She takes the box of cereal, opens it up, and pours milk directly into the box. She looks down at the box, then turns her head to look at the bowls sitting undisturbed in the cabinet. The announcer then comes in with a line "Is your cold medicine making you drowsy?", and then goes on about the benefits of DayQuil.|
