Can you match these mascots to the correct breakfast cereal brands?

You definitely know Tony the Tiger but do you know Linus the Lionhearted?

Cereals are more than a morning treat. These breakfast brands have given us mascots that filled our cartoon commercials breaks. Heck, some of them even got cartoons of their own back in the day.

Kellogg's, Post and General Mills came up with some clever and colorful characters over the decades. We bet you know most of them.

But it takes a true cereal fanatic to match all of these names to the correct brand. Grab your thinkin' spoon and let's go!

  1. Tony the Tiger
  2. Toucan Sam
  3. Snap, Crackle & Pop
  4. Fred Flintstone & Barney Rubble
  5. Cornelius Rooster
  6. BuzzBee
  7. Sunny the Sun
  8. Chip the Wolf
  9. Jean LaFoote, Harry S. Hippo & Seadog
  10. Dig 'Em Frog
  11. Chef Wendell
  12. Lovable Truly the Postman
  13. Linus the Lionhearted
  14. Whoo the Wizard of Oatz

Can you match these mascots to the correct breakfast cereal brands?

Your Result...

My chat and I found a small error in one of the answers. In number 13, two of the answers are accurate.

To quote from Wikipedia:
At first, Linus was the spokesman for the short-lived Post cereal "Heart of Oats" (a Cheerios imitation). Eventually, the lion was redesigned and reintroduced in 1963, to sell Crispy Critters, which featured Linus on the box.

So technically, both of the answers were correct.

Keep up the fantastic quizzes and games. Thanks!

Never heard of the last two! But the two cereals I most want back are King Vitaman and HIDDEN TREASURES (which I rediscovered at long last and realized their mascot was a robot, not an alien. D'oy.)

11 out of 14. Mostly guesses. Although, I remember Tony the Tiger is the mascot for Frosted Flakes. And I remember that Snap Crackle and Pop is the mascot for Rice Krispies.

Which came first, the cereal or the mascot? In the case of Cap 'n' Crunch, the mascot came first. CNC is {one of} the only cereals where the cereal was made for the mascot. {Instead of the mascot for the cereal, as with most cereals, that is what happened.}
Very interesting! I never knew that.

Missed 8 & 14. Chip the Wolf? Wizard of Oatz? They both sound bogus to me!

12/14; Never heard of All Stars cereal and I do not recall ever seeing an ad for Cinnamon Toast Crunch so I had to guess and missed those two.
If you've ever caught a commercial where one piece of cereal gets eaten by another, that's CTC. I've seen commercials for CTC. I call them the "cannibal commercials" Each cinnamon toasted square eats "one of their own! That's why I call them cannibalistic. It's the Donner Party in cereal form. {If you aren't familiar w/DP, Google them.}

14/14!
#9- Cinnamon Crunch, Punch Crunch, Cap'n Crunch,
to be exact.
What does Cinnamon Crunch and Punch Crunch have to do with Cap 'n' Crunch? Are you saying that Jean LaFoote, is the mascot for Cinnamon Toast crunch, Harry S Hippo is the mascot for Punch Crunch, and Cap 'n' Crunch is the mascot for CC? Well, you are wrong if you think this. All 3 mascots represent CC.
So sorry to be late responding! Used to be notified by email.
Yes, Jean LaFoote was the mascot for the incredibly delicious
Cinnamon Crunch. Harry S. Hippo for Punch Crunch, and Wilma
The White Whale for Vanilly Crunch. Short lived, sure, but all in the Cap'n Crunch
FAMILY.
Oops! Forgot THE CRUNCH BERRY BEAST for Crunch Berries.
Also, The Chockle for Choco Crunch.

Remember when Linus the Lionhearted had his own Saturday morning show, along with friends like Sugar Bear (and his nemesis Granny Goodwitch), postman Lovable Truly, Japanese boy So-Hi, and others? Every segment featured a Post mascot, which eventually got the show taken off the air for in effect being a half-hour cereal commercial.

12/14 They didn't mention a sailor on Cap'n Crunch, and I never heard of those other characters. I should have known, though, because Lucky Charms is a leprechaun and Quisp is a martian. Never heard of Chip the Wolf.

Chip replaced The Cookie Crook.
Quake grew up to be Joe Swanson.
Trivia Tidbit: Quake was a construction worker.
Close. Quake The Miner in 1966 and in 1969, he became Aussie Cowboy Quake.
The third member of the Quaker Q's was 1971's Quangaroos. Simon The Quangaroo
appeared during its 1971-76 run.

I thought Dig 'em was the mascot for Kellogg's Sugar Smacks. Also what happened to Tony, the Tiger jr.
RobCertSDSCascap WILD 14 months ago
He was, before the name change.

Not sure why Tony Jr. disappeared, maybe because he was on Frosted Rice
which became Frosted Rice Krispies. Also, he has a sister named Antoinette,
who is 21 years older.
