Remember Circus Fun Cereal?

Thanks to Plaidman for posting this great cereal box to the Retroist Image Pool. Circus Fun cereal was gem of a cereal, filled with colors and shapes that delighted the eyes and the mouth. I think it was undone only because many people are Circus or more specifically clown-phobic. A debilitating fear is the only way I can explain how people can resist this wonderful box when they spotted it in their cereal aisle.

But how they resisted after this commercial is beyond me…

  1. Does anyone remember when they introduced the mystery animal shape? The real question was what was the mystery animal?! I never found out.
