I have a list of cereals that I wish I had tried when they came out. Sadly some preceded me or I just plain missed them. One of those cereal was Cocoa Hoots. Why? Well I imagine the taste would not be all that different from any other chocolate cereal, but I am a big fan owls as spokesbirds and the art on the box is pretty swell. Look at the wise ol’ owl! How could you not eat his cereal? If you don’t trust the bird, how about Oscar winner Jodie Foster?
I had an awesome C3PO cutout mask as a kid, but it couldn’t hold a candle to this these amazing masks from the early 1950s. I love that Pirate and the Witch. Perfect retro Halloween. When I close my eyes and think of a witch and a pirate from the 1950s, they are exactly what I picture.
Of course this wouldn’t happen today, they wouldn’t make this awesome scary masks. All the masks would be based on cereal mascots, dressed as generic creeps and ghouls.
