Cheerios will give you the Strength to wrestle an Animated Tornado


I am not sure people realize this, but Tornadoes are nothing to fear if you have a heaping bowl of Cheerios. They give you the Go Go power you need to wrestle that mean ol’ tornado and save the family farm.

This commercial was running in the mid-1980s, well after they had launched Honey Nut Cheerios and completely lost me as a regular Cheerio consumer. Still this was a great bit of advertising, a great little jingle couple with bright and fun animation made it very memorable even 3 decades later.
