Retro gaming channel haikarate4 posted a nostalgic compilation of classic animated commercials from the 1960s for a variety of kids cereals. Included in this list are the origins of such modern idioms as “Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs” and “Trix are for kids”, while the other ads for such cereals as “Lucky Charms” and “Apple Jacks” might not translate very well in the current era.
