Recently featured on Eclectik’s site was an impressive look into the vast catalog of Cap’n Crunch cereals. Thinking back to some of the special edition cereals we had growing up, we couldn’t help filling our own bowls with all the cereals we could find! These are either special- or limited-edition cereals or cereals that were tie-ins to popular movies, cartoons, video games, comic books and toys. How many have you had?
Enjoy the slideshow and gallery! Be sure to leave us comments if you have any…
This was a 2007 cereal for Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, but the box art was pulled from Raiders of the Lost Ark. Guess 70 year-old Indy wasn’t moving units.
The first of several Spidey cereals. Spider-man turns 50 this year.
The world’s unfunniest comic strips were assembled together on a very unfunny cereal box. Not surprised no one’s heard of this.
Steve Urkel was at the height of popularity in the 90’s, so much so he used his cereal to campaign for the presidency
Sweetened corn pellets, marshmallow Pac-Man & ghost shapes and Ms. Pac-Man thrown in as a bonus!
NIN-TEN-DO!!! IT’S A CEREAL! WOW!
WYLD STALLYNS RULE!
Wheaties had to profit on the basketball slam dunk craze, but “Dunk-a-Balls”? Let’s not go there, shall we?
Stuntin like his daddy…
This was an unreleased cereal. Would’ve been a great tie-in, but chocolate balls? WTF does that have to do with robots in disguise?
Creepy, kooky, altogether ooky looking cereal. Thankfully there were no MC Hammer soundtrack tie-ins
Corn Pops were sweet enough– but CANDY Corn Pops? Jeez!
Basically a Cap’n Crunch variant for 1989’s Tim Burton Batman movie. If only they offered a limited edition Billy Dee Williams Harvey Dent mask on the back…
I’d imagine this was for the kids who watched Double Dare daily and roasted ants with magnifying glasses outside.
You KNOW you were down with the struggle if you ate “Prince of Thieves” cereal. Kevin Costner couldn’t even stick around to pose for the box photo, so they drew it on.
Mistaaaaa T!!! This was actually a tasty cereal.
The worst video game ever made had to have come from the same franchise that gave us the worst tie-in cereal ever tasted.
GREM-LINS! GREM-LINS! BITE AFTER BITE!!
Time to make the donuts! So much creepy goin on here. Blackstone and the Dunkin Donuts guy both giving me that predator eye? “Glazed Style”? Nah, son…
Never had this, but I’d imagine the flakes are pink, or they turn the milk pink or something. Sounds like an awful experience.
Does this come with a Hot Wheels track inside?
Another combo cereal, similar to boxes of Nerds candy. If only they just put the candy in the box instead.
Of all 80’s cartoons, you’d think Rainbow Brite would be perfect for a cereal. Hero to future activists everywhere.
Crunchy stars? How original! Where are my Gretzky, Jordan and Tecmo Bo marshmallow shapes, huh?!!
“Smurf-Berry Crunch is fun to eeaaaaat! A very fruity breakfast treeaaaaatt!”
FRUIT FLAVORED O’S! MARSHMALLOW GHOSTS! WHATCHA GONNA CRUNCH?
The Muppets’ Swedish Chef had his very own cereal…
The Bat, The Cat and The Penguin. This cereal taste like it was made with parts from all three animals.
Mickey only peddled his crunchy wares North of the Border, where Simon from Die Hard With A Vengeance was hiding out.
C-3PO’s belonged in the garbage mashers on the detention level.
Popeye cereal came in bags in a variety of types. Sweet crunch was the best.
Four box variants of WWF Superstars cereal. Don’t eat this around Papa Shango…
When Classick ate this cereal, he threw away all the non-blue marshmellows and yelled something about Leonardo leading…
Jurassic Park skipped over the chance to put out a cereal for the first movie. Not so for The Lost World.
If Frankenberry went through with the operation…
Smurf-Berry Crunch wasn’t enough. Years later, Post gave us Smurf Magic Berries. Think Crunch Berries without the crunch…
Tiffany’s is fully booked, so have breakfast with Barbie instead.
Did not know G.I. Joe had a cereal. Again with the stars, how does this help me experience G.I. Joe, huh?
Another spin-off cereal, Slimer ended up being the “break-out” star of The Real Ghostbusters, forcing this cereal on the masses.
Not just a line of dolls and a victory dance, Cabbage Patch Kids had their own cereal. If only Garbage Pail Kids followed suit….
Chex had a sugar version that tied in with Casper the Friendly Ghost. This box had to be from the 70s.
Donkey Kong took time out from enforcing Pauline’s restraining order on creepy stalker plumber Mario to give us this awesome cereal.
