    Most, most meaning all, don`t really have any basis. It`s just a lame stretched interpretation.

    Except for sonny as an addict these don`t make much sense.
    I agree with the article when it says the trix advertising campaign sucks.

And also thats complete bullpoo about the WB frog, that frog has existed forever, at least since the 70s, do some drating research next time you are TRYING to be funny, idiots

    Having read about the trix rabbit i have serious thoughts that the cookie crisp wolf is a complete ripoff of trix. Scheming mammals who always want cereal but never seem to get it because their plan is foiled at the last second.

    I smell law-suits.

    Stereotyped Cereal Mascots ??

    I guess if you look long enough, deep enough, far enough, and LOW enough, you can eventually STRETCH YOUR IMAGINATION and find something to satisfy your opinionated prejudices.

    Shanir, I don`t think he commited suicide... But I have no clue, there`s been loads of random rumors about him. Everyone round were I live is convinced he moved to africa...
    I doubt that too, to be honest...
    and then some random person said he moved to australia...
    But anyway, the actual thing... some of them didn`t make much sense when you thought about it, but some of them were pretty funny...

    Lmao, this reminded me of a rant one of my teachers always would go off into for no reason. Sometimes people would purposely bring it up just to waste class time. I swear he`s discussed all of these things on this website.

    But they left out the Fruity Pebbles one that teaches kids that it`s okay to steal.

    Just a random fact: The guy who did Tony`s voice also sang the "Mister Grinch" song. He died about a year ago which is why you dont see ant new Frosted Flakes commercials.
    One more fun fact: Peeing in your pants isnt ok after 10.

    i`m confused.. is this supposed to be a joke? i don`t think these companies are trying to be racist... just because the mascots have stereotypical characteristics of a certain culture, doesn`t mean the company is trying to portray that culture, and even if they are, why is it bad? it`s not like they`re making fun of the culture, they`re just making mascots that people can relate to. i didn`t see anything negative in those commercials...

    most of these if not all were probably thought of by some couch potato that thinks to much and went insane from watching to many commercials.
