Cereal Comics

Cereal ads in old comics are quite fun to read, as they reflect their TV counterparts on Saturday mornings (do they still have Saturday morning cartoons anymore?). I found these three in an old The Flinstones with Pebbles Gold Key comic (#22, 1964). My favorite is the Lucky Charms ad, but look how boring the box is! (Speaking of cereal boxes, check out these Jay Ward inspired designs.) I don’t know who drew these comics, but I’m researching who the cartoonists are. Man, I would so love to have that job drawing cereal ads.

That one kid in the Lucky Charms ad looks suspiciously like a chipmunk.
