I don't remember the record for this cereal but I do (now) remember the cereal. Boo berry was my favorite. Nice find!

Marissa said...

Yay! Count Chocula! Thanks Joe - it's sooo easy to make me smile. :D

Loved those freebie records.

joe said...

Jim: Boo Berry was good. I liked anything blue.

Marissa: You're welcome!

Jim @ CoolStuffForDads.com said...

I know I had some give away from one these ... just can't remember what it was. Do they still sell these?

Jim @ CoolStuffForDads.com said...

Speaking of blue, how about the Otter Pops (freeze pops)? You eat those as a kid? Blue and green were my favorites. Great in the summer!

joe said...

I loved otter pops, but mom wouldn't buy them. she bought a cheaper, generic brand, but they weren't as fun. She ruined everything...

Where's frickin' Fruit Brute?!? Man, he always gets excluded from these things!

joe said...

Haha. Fruit Brute????

Brad said...

I want these on MP3
and why does no one remember fruit brute? He was a warewolf

Jim @ CoolStuffForDads.com said...

I looked him up and also came across Yummy Mummy, didn't remember that one either. Sorry!!

joe said...

Brad: Oh yes. Now i remember. I never ate that one though. It was strictly count chocula (well, and whatever had the best prize at the time).

Jim: Well that makes two of us..

Oh gosh we had many boxes of Count Chocula and Frankenberry's. They got kids coming and going - anything for the sale. I found this site: http://www.theimaginaryworld.com/cbarch.html
cereal lovers and those who like to see the old boxes need to take a peek at this site.

joe said...

Thanks Ann! I'll check it out.

Jim @ CoolStuffForDads.com said...

Check out Fruit Brute and the Monster Playmates on the URL Grannyann gave you - $1 plus 1 proof of purchase for each (I think).

joe said...

Now if they sold on ebay they'd be, like, 100 bucks each..

I have some cardboard records that were probably cut off the back of a cereal box or something. They are regular singers though, not cereal specific.

joe said...

If they're cardboard, then they came from cereal boxes. Don't tell Marissa though, you'll never get rid of her....
;^)

teri said...

I loved Boo Berry. Did they discontinue it cause I haven't seen it around in years.

joe said...

I think they still do. I'm pretty sure they still make count chocula, so they probably still make boo berry. Now i've got a craving for boo berry...

Charmed said...

This is the most awesome thing I have seen today!

I remember cutting out all the Monkees and Bobby Sherman records off the back of cereal boxes..

Wish I still had 'em today, just for novelty sake.
