I stumbled across a Count Chocula commercial (1991-ish) called “Mickey” and I had to talk about it. It’s notable because A) it features a live-action Count Chocula and 2) well, watch for yourself.
Still not getting it?
Count Chocula has BALLS for a chin! Hey, the guy has always had a cleft chin, but this is ridiculous! It’s ball off the walls crazy, I tell ya! You can’t tell me that chin prosthetic was not done to perfectly resemble a smooth pair of testicles. Someone was pulling a gag. And it’s so obvious that I’m surprised General Mills signed off on this commercial.
And let us not forget this little guy:
Mickey the Chocolate Monster, everyone. WTF is he supposed to be? He looks like the melted offspring of a chocolate moose and a chocolate chicken. Someone clearly had balls on the brain and gave very little thought as to how Mickey’s chocolate monster form should look.
Does anyone know if there were anymore live-action monster cereal commercials? Count Chocuballs here is the stuff of nightmares (like a bloated post-plastic surgery Mickey Rourke), but I wonder how they would’ve handled Frankenberry.
