For over 100 years, Battle Creek, Michigan has been crankin' out the cereals and the whole country is grateful: Kellogg's and Post definitely lead that pack. And over those years, many cereals have come and gone – most started out in the late 1800s-early 1900s with just the words and description of the cereal on the cover. Then, someone got the bright idea of putting a face on a cereal box: a mascot, so to speak.

The first just happened to be not one, but three mascots: Snap, Crackle, and Pop on Kellogg's Rice Krispies boxes in the early 1930s. That opened the floodgates: from then on, cartoon mascots came and went - some had staying power, many others did not.

Some of the mascots from Kellogg's and Post that fell through the wayside include:
