I mean what are we really trying to teach our kids here? Maybe video games aren't to blame for all the issues with kids today its the damn cereal commercials and their serial capers.

To list a few of the cereal villains:

1.) Trix - the rabbit is always trying to steal the Trix from the kids. The kids never share saying Trix are for kids.

2.) Lucky Charms - Here you have the iconic "Lucky" the leprechaun always running from the kids who are trying to steal his charms. Aren't we all suppose to get along?

3.) Fruity Pebbles - Here we have Flinstones Barney always trying to deceive a friend Fred to get his Fruity Pebbles... some friend heh?

4.) Cookie Crisp - Cookie Crisp has had a series of crooks as mascots to represent its cereal. From 1982-1997 it was Cookie Crook who was always getting arrested for trying to steal from kids and in recent years its been Chip the Wolf.

5.) Waffle Crisp - In a 1996 ad Grannies disguised as girls try to steal a stash of the cereal from their unsuspecting grandchildren... with a rifle.
