My brother who was a military buff when I was a kid but became a Navy guy served in wars and stuff told me that "crispy critters" was the slang term Vietnam combat fighters used to refer to burn victims in the Vietnam war. It destroyed this commercial for me when I was a kid.
He was right.
Crispy Critters - The Cereal that tastes like nothing
The reasoning behind this ad may seem elusive now, but kids in the 80s were wild for this shit.
I remember pestering my mom for six straight months until she finally caved in and got me Thunder Punch Jimmy Durante for my seventh birthday. What a day that was.
This commercial hit at precisely the 6 months in my life wherein cereal was my entire reason for living. I assume all children go through this phase.
4th grade year. This POS song was the bane of my existence. Hi my name is Christopher Paul Polo...

There was a two-week period where I adored this cereal. Then I saw this commercial, and that came to an abrupt end.

The Jimmy Durante anthropomorph really does it for me.
Oh christ I remember this.
Also, I can't remember if I ever ate the cereal or not. Either this commercial did not affect me, or eating it was so bland as to be unmemorable.
