Throwback Thursday: The toons that sold us cereal

This week’s Throwback Thursday comes directly from the breakfast nook, taking us back to a time when our morning meal was a little bit simpler and a whole lot sweeter. These iconic cereal spots, from the 1950s through the ’90s, feature cartoon characters interacting with kids, tempting them with flakes and grains of the frosted variety.

Cereal may be declining in popularity as a go-to breakfast option for millennials, but Gen-Xers and Baby Boomers will always have these spots. From the Trix Rabbit to Tony the Tiger and from the Smurfs to the Flintstones, it seems just about every cereal had an animated character shilling for it.
