Kids' Cereal Mascots Come to Frightening Life (Photos)

count chocula, cap'n crunch, frosted flakes, trix
It’s bloody good!

I went pre-hurricane grocery shopping with a friend and her son last weekend, and as we were walking down the cereal isle, he was pointing at all the sugary kids’ cereals going, “Oh, these are good. Oh yeah, these are good. Oh, this one is really good!” I never ate kids’ cereals as a kid myself, but I do of course remember all of the advertising attached to those brands. I can see Tucan Sam floating over a rainbow-colored cartoon jungle, imagine Tony the Tiger saying, “They’rrrrrre grrrreat!” and hear the Trix tagline ringing through my mind’s ear. “Silly rabbit, Trix are for kids!”

These ads must have made a similarly strong impression on Peruvian artist Guillermo Fajardo, who just created a brilliant and wild “cereal series” called “Breakfast Time,” wherein he reinterprets the mascots of four popular children’s cereals: Cap’n Crunch, Trix, Count Chocula and Frosted Flakes. This incredibly detailed and somewhat spooky digital art will perfectly compliment your Halloween hangover:

  • Cap’n Crunch 1 of 8

  • Provides 8 essential vitamins… 7 of 8
