Count Chocula

The caped, pointy-eared count with a stereotypical Transylvanian accent was, for some reason, a magnet to children. Even his pet spider couldn't repel them. But, of course, it was really the sugary goodness that drew them in — kids probably didn't even notice the count's wiry fingers or single sharpened incisor hanging from his jaw. To make matters worse, Count Chocula promoted his "double-chocolaty" cereal while cavorting with his fellow cereal monsters Frankenberry and Boo Berry, who had equally scary dispositions and promoted equally unhealthy breakfast cereals.
