5 stars for goddamn LUANN being in this commercial.
Scrimmjob
Nothing reminds me of a good hardy laff like Luann! Inexplicably still in print!

Fuck me, I had no idea Luann had had such a Garfield-esque evolution over the past 30ish years.

Trivia: ZITS is her cousin!

Unfortunately it was a year or two early to include Thatch.


Which is really just my excuse to remind you all that Thatch existed, and was even worse than you remember (if you're unfortunate enough to remember).

Fun fact: The author of Thatch got hired as a speech writer for Bill Clinton, which is why he ended the comic. And boy do I remember the comic. God, Thatch was awful.

It has the dad from Family Circus. How fun can it be?

and an extremely demented looking Hi and Lois!

Trivia: Lois from Hi and Lois is Beetle Bailey's sister.

"Squish it out!"

Sadly this cereal failed due to consumers thinking it was just a box full of shredded newspaper, when in reality it was shredded newspaper with marshmallows.
Rodents of Unusual Size
I guess you could say that cereal was EDGY comedy AHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA

Thank you, I'll be here all night, folks. And now, Luann would like to come out on stage for some jokes about swallowing cum.

Nothing says "asking for some fun" like "that strip about a grade-schooler who talks like a yuppie, from the team that brought you The Lockhorns".
Kid Fenris
OK, we'll have Dennis the Menace lead the commercial, since he's the only character here that kids might care about. He had a cartoon in '86, after all.

With any luck, the little brats will be wolfing down this sugary gravel before they notice that we couldn't get Garfield, Bloom County, The Far Side, Peanuts, or even Ziggy.

And Calvin and Hobbes? If kids want Calvin and Hobbes ANYTHING, I got some bad news for 'em.
bopeton
I remember them cramming all the comics that were more kid-friendly into one quadrant of the funny pages. Doonesbury and such were separated physically by a sea of things I mostly grasped like Garfield and Far Side.

Xenocide
My local paper segregated Doonesbury to the editorial section because people complained it was brainwashing their children into becoming liberals.
