If you were a kid growing up in the 1970's, I'm sure at some point Count Chocula cereal landed on your breakfast table.

In late 1971 General Mills began production of the Count, along with his pal Franken Berry, combining a very tasty cereal with in-box prizes and a dominating character presence on both TV and in the grocery aisle. The following year Boo Berry was introduced, followed by Fruit Brute and Yummy Mummy completing the unholy circle.

My favorite was Count Chocula, I would even have a bowl of it in the evening while I watch the Adams Family or the Munsters on TV.
