Cinnamon Toasty Apple Jacks

That's a fact
Start it out with
Apple Jacks!

.....Apple Tasting,
Crunchy too,
Kellogg's Apple Jacks!
My uncle was in advertising and was involved with the Apple Jacks commercials from that era. He had a hand in many commercials we all know, from Tony the Tiger to Charlie Tuna to Poppin' Fresh and many more. He's a very interesting person and has lots of fascinating stories.

Yes, I have seen that, and I think whoever modified the lyrics did a great job of "translating" the originals to modern slang.

That said, I remember the original one, barely, as we had just arrived back stateside from Japan. I also seem to remember one that had the original singers, then all their kids came in to join them. I think that version was back in the 90's.

How about the "Double-double cheese-cheese burger-burger please?" that Mary Lou Retten (sp?) did back in the early 80's?
