My mom wouldn't buy us those kinds of cereals. We were only allowed to eat Rice Krispies, Cheerios, Corn Flakes, or on a really crazy day, Honey Nut Cheerios.

it's funny how youtube seems to transcend time. who spends their time encoding commercials from the 80s? who actually has access to recordings of them?!

People have old VHS tapes lying around. As far as encoding them- I kinda wonder about somebody who encodes a TON of stuff. But you know, lets say I find an old tape with a funny old commercial on it...I share that one thing...but then there's 10,000 other people doing the same thing.

I do wonder where the 60's and early 70's commercials come from.

I just remember feeling a little sad when rice crispies went from a cartoon snap crackle and pop to a CGI version.

The earlier version of these guys reminded me of the keebler elves. They did not have tv presence.

do any of you remember when there were three Cinnamon Toast Crunch baker mascots?

Then they ran some promotion where the main baker was missing and you had to play the games on the box or something to find him, after that they never brought the other two guys back as far as I know.

Was anyone else FLAMMING pissed when Trix went from balls, to fruit shapes that cut your mouth? (similar to the Cpt. Crunch phenomenon)

http://cerealbuzz.com/images/trixballs.jpg

EDIT: FUCK YES! (from Wikipedia, and other various sites further confirmed this)
Stages of Innovation

In 1992 Trix replaced the original round ball shape with fruit-shaped pieces. Four new fruit shapes and colors were added over the years: Grapity grape (purple) (1985-1995), Lime green (1991), Wildberry blue (1998-2006), and Watermelon (1999). In 1995, the cereal pieces were given a brighter and more colorful look. However, the different "fruits" in the cereal between 1992 and 2006 all share the same flavor. Recently in 2007 Trix has replaced their fruit shaped pieces with the original round ball shape.
