I noticed that General Mills’ Monster Cereals are back on the shelves to coincide with Halloween. When I saw the box of Franken Berry, I realized his fingernails look like strawberries. I thought to myself, “Who does his nails?”

The commercials for children’s cereals were often better than the cartoons on Saturday mornings. Quisp and Quake were always fighting, Cap’n Crunch was always making new discoveries (like the island where the Crunchberry beast lived) and fending off the evil pirate Jean LeFoot. Hmm. Maybe soon I’ll have to do a portrait of the Crunchberry Beast.

And if you’d like to see a different take on the classic commercial, go here!
