Star Wars: The Force Awakens, And Has Breakfast

26 Jan

Star Wars is back, and in the grand tradition of movie tie-ins, it has its own cereal. But I’m a little confused. Are Yoda and Darth Vader about to square off over a bowl of cereal? I guess there weren’t many grocery stores a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away. Yoda looks pretty angry. I’m not sure I’d like to stare at that face over my breakfast table. Is he daring me to eat that cereal? This is a little violent for breakfast.

Maybe it is all just a Jedi mind trick.

But not to be left out, the Trix Rabbit also got in on the act. Here he is, dressed as his favorite Star Wars character.


He’s dressed as Princess Leia. Not what I would have expected. Is there something we should know about him? Seems like an odd choice. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

I wonder how that box sold down South? “Yee-haw and fry my griddles! I ain’t having no gol-darn cross-dressing rabbit cereal in this house! Where’s my shotgun? I’m going out to shoot me a good old-fashioned muskrat for breakfast. And somebody check the still. I think I saw some revenuers sneaking around.”

Meanwhile, lost and left out of all the cross-promotion, is poor Jar Jar Binks.







The Saturday Comics: The Trix Rabbit

Remember those fantastic Hostess ads? They were great fun, featuring comic characters from Archie to The Thing in a mini-story where only Hostess Fruit Pies or Twinkies could save the day. Gosh they were fun.

Now I bring you the Trix Rabbit, or as I call him, the One Trick Pony. All he wants is a box of Trix.

Here he is being thwarted by a young cowboy.


Here he is being stopped by a young genie.


Here he is being denied by a grocer.


Here he is being halted by a young miner, a minor miner, clearly breaking any number of Federal employment regulations.


My god, is it any wonder these ads have been all but forgotten? Where was the imagination? Where was the fun? And why can’t the rabbit have some Trix? Is there a shortage? Do they have something to hide? It all seems kind of cruel to me.

But it wasn’t all bad. The Trix Rabbit once met Superman!


Sorry, wrong Trix.
