Scary versions of cereal mascots

23 July, L A.S. (2015)

Remember Count Chocula, Frankenberry, and Boo-Berry?

I originally found these on Bloody Disgusting (a post by Jonathan Barkan). Cool website, check ’em out!

Kids’ breakfast cereal is a great American tradition. Who doesn’t love a delicious bowl of variously flavored and shaped pieces of sugar? And cereal boxes have such memorable artwork and mascots. A few of the most memorable are the General Mills monster-themed cereals.

Artist Mike Burns recently released some artwork portraying scary versions of Count Chocula, Boo-Berry, and Frankenberry. They’re really cool! Check out his other work too, the guy’s got talent.

I only learned today from some Wikipedia reading that these cereals are now only available in the Fall, to coincide with Halloween. I’ll have to buy them all this year to celebrate the season!!
