Captain Crunch Why Did You Kill The Crunchberrie Beast?

So I reach into my pantry earlier and what to my delight do I find? Captain Crunch Crunchberries. So I'm eating it dry out of the box and guess what? There's no damn visual of the Crunchberrie Beast on the box.

Huh?

The Crunchberrie Beast was a pretty cool cereal character. What happened? Like everything else it probably had something to do with political correctness. Probably the result of some cross-eyed lobbyist group. Stupid jerks.

Here's the commercial from days of old.

Hey, I don't mind if the Crunchberry Beast has had enough of life as a celebrity and went underground. As long as he keeps churning out the best cereal in the history of the world.

Also, word verification is "humper". I had to check and make sure I was not on Cora's slutty blog.

Captain Crunch, nothing ripped open the inside of your mouth like it.

They are probably pulling him, to relaunch him with a new modern makeover. Or 12 people in a room in Omaha gave the term "Beast" a low score on some consumer poll.

Stupid consumer polls. I say they should save themselves lots of money, and just pay You to tell them what's right.

I think the last crunchberry beast was hunted to extinction in Scotland in 1988.

Sad, but it's viscerals made the best haggis.

I'm more impressed by the captain's stoned voice. Who needs enunciation when you've got the munchies?

That creature had no noticable redeeming qualities....

Subtle changes are always happening to our favorite cereals.

The marshmallows in Lucky Charms are slightly different.

I guess we're just supposed to stick to All Bran when we're adults. It never changes. I guess it's never offended anyone...except the guy next to me after I eat it.

Yeah. I shouldn't have.

But I did. ;)

Maybe they put him in the zoo along side that spotted weirdo from the Dr. Seuss books.

Captain Crunch was the one cereal I truly craved as a child and the only one my mother wouldn't let me have...too much sugar, or some bullshit excuse like that.

I see I am the only one who at a first glance misread "panty" instead of pantry...

Dr Zibbs said...

MJenks - He does look kind of like a Seuss character a bit.

That beast is a happy memory from my youth. Why did they remove him? I bet your assumption is correct.
How was the cereal?

Caffeine Court said...

I love those Cruchberres!!!

Okay, now, seriously. No one said you look like the kid from Mask.

It was a little "Elephant Man" humor.

Now I feel bad.

Zibsy, you crack me up!
Yes! I totally remember him but I forgot about him--until now!!
good times.

Scope said...

I just Googled it, and it turns out the Crunchberry beast lost all his endorsement contracts when pictures of him smoking pot surfaced.

Dr Zibbs said...

Caffeine Court - what if you met me and I actually was disfigured? Then you'd feel really bad. Luckily I'm not.

My high school's mascot was the Crunchberry Beast. None of the other schools messed with us.
