Count Chocula and Frankenberry Commercials

You'll Vant to Watch These Vintage Monster Cereal Commercials

The rumors are true. Cereals of yore Count Chocula, Franken Berry, and Boo Berry are back for the Halloween season, and they've brought some old friends to the breakfast party as well: Frute Brute and Fruity Yummy Mummy. Before you dig into an indulgent marshmallow-studded bowl of these spooky cereals (they're on shelves now), let's reminisce over their charmingly retro original commercials.

Count Chocula and Franken Berry

The original duo, Count Chocula and Franken Berry, debuted in 1971; ever since, fans have been devouring these chocolate- and berry-flavored cereals, "vitamin-charged" monster sweeties (aka marshmallows) and all. If you're anything like Count Chocula, then you'll vant to grab a box.

Keep reading for the rest of the sweetly spooky commercials.

Boo Berry

A few years later, Count Chocula and Franken Berry made a new friend rival, Boo Berry, a blueberry take on this sugary cereal formula. (Fruit Loop-like cereal? Check! Marshmallows? You betcha.)

Frute Brute

What's a Frute Brute, you ask? This vintage commercial might clear up matters a bit, but what you really need to know is that this cherry-flavored cereal (with, you guessed it, marshmallows) is back on shelves for the first time in over 20 years.

Fruity Yummy Mummy

Last but not least is Fruity Yummy Mummy, an orange-flavored cereal along the lines of his spooky-sweet friends. A cereal-aisle staple from 1987 to 1990, it's also back for the Halloween season for the first time in two decades.
