We all can agree that chocolate is a tasty treat, but Sonny the Cuckoo Bird takes it to the next level. This famous cereal mascot tries and tries to stay away from the delicious chocolate crunchy cereal, although, sometimes he just can’t help himself!

The cuckoo bird looks like the extinct bird, as his name implies, and represents the Cocoa Puffs cereal. He also reminds us that Cocoa Puffs are a nutritious part of breakfast and he always has a parade of children around him pushing the bird to his next yummy bowl of chocolate packed cereal.

2. Tony the Tiger (Frosted Flakes Cereal)

Somewhere along the line, you’ve probably heard Tony the Tiger’s catch phrase, β€œthey’rrrrrrrrrrre great!”. Of course, he is describing the crunchy and sugary cereal Frosted Flakes. Tony the Tiger is a famous cereal mascot often shown only wearing a red bandana which compliments his bright orange fur and black stripes.

One of Tony the Tiger’s greatest characteristics is he gave children the confidence, encouragement and nourishment they need to achieve their goals. Tony is definitely one of the greatest mascots of all time!

It’s only natural that a honey bee would represent the sweetened with honey cereal known as Honey Nut Cheerios. Buzz Bee made his debut in the late 1970s and has stuck around since.

Children all around the world who enjoy a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios for breakfast recognize the friendly bee on the box. Buzz Bee will continue to buzz onward throughout the years as the Honey Nut Cheerios mascot!

4. Lucky the Leprechaun (Lucky Charms Cereal)

Unfortunately, Lucky’s name is slightly misleading because he always finds himself in the same tragic situation over and over again. Two children usually steal Lucky the Leprechaun’s cereal and it is up to him to recover the goods.

Although, Lucky can use his leprechaun magic to help him escape with the cereal. But, since Lucky is a nice leprechaun, he usually shares a meal with the children despite the fact that they took the cereal for him. Lucky has definitely got a big heart!

5. Trix Rabbit (Trix Cereal)

Trix Rabbit is a well-known master of disguise since he is constantly pulling tricks. However, he often gets caught by the children pulling tricks which is where the famous catchphrase β€œsilly rabbit tricks are for kids” comes from.

Trix Rabbit is also constantly on the lookout for a bowl of fruity cereal, although he constantly gets denied his tasty breakfast from children ever since his introduction in the late 1950s. Maybe one day he will get his desired cereal breakfast after all this time!

6. Cap’n Crunch (Cap’n Crunch Cereal)

In general, most famous cereal mascots are playful and outgoing, although, not this mascot. Cap’n Crunch is an officer from the armed forces whose duty is to protect the cereal from the greedy pirates. Cap’n Crunch came on the scene in 1963 with a bold white mustache, a calm yet confident attitude and a determination to protect the Cap’n Crunch cereal.

7. Toucan Sam (Froot Loops Cereal)

According to Toucan Sam, the tropical forests are filled with random Froot Loops boxes just waiting to be discovered and enjoyed by their finders. Toucan Sam is coloured red, yellow and orange, the three original colours of Froot Loops.

Ever since the 1960s, Toucan Sam has been encouraging children to follow their noses to the sweet smell of Froot Loops. Once children get a bit of Froot Loops, they will definitely enjoy the tropical fruity taste!

8. Snap, Crackle and Pop (Rice Krispies Cereal)

Snap was the first mascot to be introduced in 1933, this makes perfect sense since he is the chef. His brothers, Crackle and Pop, joined Snap about a decade later. The trio has has a lot of adventures in their commercials since then. These cereal mascots are very popular among toddlers and children as they munch on their favourite snacks. Another fun fact is they’re the oldest Kellogg brand mascots, even though they don’t look it!
