Creepy: Cereal Box Mascots Get The Realistic Treatment

October 19, 2012


This is 'Breakfast Time', a series of digital paintings by artist Guillermo Fajardo featuring lifelike versions of cereal mascots. This is Cap'n 'Come Sit On My Lap' Crunch here, but there's Tony the Tiger, the Trix Rabbit and Count Chocula after the jump. Admittedly, Guillermo did an amazing job, but I can understand why the cereal manufacturers opted for cartoon versions instead. If I had to eat breakfast with any of these guys staring back at me I'd probably run away from home. "You could just go hungry until lunch you know." And miss the most important meal of the day? I'd rather live in the woods!

Hit the jump for the other three and two time-lapse videos of Guillermo painting the Trix Rabbit.

    By realistic you mean unrealistic and disgusting?

  • David Charles Maurice Fraga

    No frosted Lucky Charms/ Snap, crackle, pop/ or cheeriose?

  • Rod R

    Why does the count's peen bulge show? Is the count a perv?

  • BeastmanAIDS

    Saw your comment and excitedly scrolled back up to investigate this rogue bulge and was disappointed to find only shirt hem.

    I only know the lion! :( And with that picture i'm thinking why not just a lion then a man in a lion suit...

  • I'm getting a really strong Dr. Rockso, the Rock and Roll Clown vibe here.

  • Chyros

    K, K, K, K, K, YEAAAHHH!!!

  • Brandon

    Why did they turn the animal mascots into humans in costumes?

  • GreyGanado

    Because anthropomorphic animals aren't realistic.

  • CptnKookles

    Neither is Zoidburg, or Sonic the Hedgehog, or the proportions of any of the other realistic drawings. The realistic genre is taking whats there, and showing what that would look like if it excited in the real world.

    is this what happens if you keep eating that crap past the age of 13?


    Thanks for that, I'm not gonna sleep tonight...

  • Full of freaky goodness! Yum.

    These area really well done. I might consider printing one off and pasting it to a cereal box as a hilarious prank.

    Why do they all have eczema?

    The ill effects of General Mills' products.

  • FeistyCadaver

    Is it just me, or does the Trix rabbit kinda look like something from Bioshock?

  • joshbinvt
