To be honest as this Gremlins cereal TV commercial explains it, when you had a hungering for breakfast cereal you would start to sport large Mogwai ears until you were able to get a bowl of the delicious crunchy cereal…that some remember as tasting exactly like Cap’N Crunch!
While this ad is of course very enjoyable for having Gizmo diving into a bowl of Gremlin cereal, I felt the really interesting point was that it stars Jonathan Ward, who played Douglas Pembroke in 22 episode of Charles in Charge.
One year before he would appear in the Joe Dante helmed Twilight Zone revival episode “The Shadow Man”, a fitting connection since Dante directed Gremlins, right?
Sadly there never was any Shadow Man cereal.
