Remember that one day when you could wake up without an alarm? When you would get your favorite bowl of cereal and sit between the hours of 8 and 12? This is a blog dedicated to the greatest time of our childhood: Saturday mornings. The television programs you watched, the memories attached to them, and maybe introducing you to something you didn't realize existed. Updated every weekend.
Replacing Kellogg’s as the food tie-in partner of the
franchise, General Mills released Spider-Man
3 cereal. They chose to represent the cereal with red and blue ball puffs
that had a fruity flavoring. The back of the box was taken up by a single large
maze game set in a spider’s web. Like Kellogg’s, General Mills included tie-in
premiums in their other cereals in the form of squirt
toys in the shape of Spidey and the film’s three villains.

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN CEREAL
The comic book movie
revolution from campy novelty to summer blockbuster may have quietly begun four
years prior with Bladeand later X-Men,
but with 2002’s Spider-Manit was in full (pardon the pun) swing.Written by David Koepp
and directed by Sam Raimi, Spider-Man
presented a slightly modified origin for the titular
character (Tobey Maguire)
and his arch-nemesis, the Green
Goblin (Willem Dafoe),
as fate and circumstances brought the two to a head in a climactic battle.
Released by Sony Pictures on May 3,
2002, it became an instant hit. It was the first film to pass $100 million in
its opening weekend and the fastest to surpass that mark. By the end of its
run, it had grossed $821.7 million.
The back and side of the Spider-Man cereal box.
That September, Kellogg’s announced its partnership with Marvel Comics and Sony Pictures to release
Spidey-themed food items, including a cereal (which they mistakenly touted as
the first, ignoring Ralston’s
1994 offering). The limited-edition Spider-Man cereal featured
“web”-shaped cereal pieces with artificial berry flavoring. While some of the
webs were naturally colored, others alternated between red and blue coloring.
Adorning the boxes was a foil-stamped logo and eyes in Spidey’s mask on the
front, a story on the back with some stock drawings of Spidey in various poses,
and a trivia game related to the story on the side panel. Later, when the film
was released onto home video, the boxes came with a small blurb advertising it
and a picture of the DVD set.
As part of their
promotional campaign, other cereals in the Kellogg’s line came with premiums
related to the film. Amongst them were glow-in-the-dark stickers, temporary
tattoos, and a web-shooter
water squirter. They also teamed-up with America’s
Dairy Farmers to offer a send-away promotion for a free Spidey CD-ROM game
(which was essentially the 2000 Spider-Manvideo
game with the character model altered to resemble the film’s suit and other

Molina); a scientist who became bonded to four-mechanical arms he invented
to aid in his scientific experiments and became mad with a desire to see his
experiment through at the risk of the city. Released on June 30, 2004, the film
was as well-received as the first and shattered its opening day record.
However, it ended up grossing about $40 million less with a total of $783.8

Kellogg’s was once again on board and re-released
their Spider-Man cereal. The cereal was essentially the same, except it
came in a new yellow orange box with Spidey in a new pose, and only on the back
was the Spider-Man 2 title present. For a time, the foil-stamped logo
and eyes also made a return before being replaced with standard art later in
its run (excluding the international box, which had no foil and came with a blue background). The back of the box this time was adorned with several Spidey-themed
games, including a trivia game, crossword puzzle, a maze, a match game, a
hidden item search, and a word scramble. This time, tie-in premiums included
web-shooter-like laser pointers that projected one of four different designs.
The Raimi film series would gain one more
less-welcomed entry in Spider-Man 3, but it was General Mills who made a cereal for
that one. Ultimately, Marvel and Sony decided to scrap Raimi’s proposed Spider-Man
4 in favor of rebooting the franchise with a new direction and a new cast.
Written by James Vanderbilt
and directed by Marc Webb, The
Amazing Spider-Man took Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) back to high
school as he explored a mystery involving his parents, which took him to Oscorp
where, like in the original films, he was bitten by a genetically modified
spider and gained his powers. Meanwhile, Dr. Curt Connors
(Rhys Ifans) had transformed
himself into the monstrous Lizard in an attempt to stop his former boss (Irrfan Khan) from using ins
imperfect serum on unknowing test subjects. Ultimately, that led to his wanting
to transform all of New York into lizard people like him and forcing Spidey to
The Amazing Spider-Man cereal back.
The film was released on July 3, 2012 to generally
favorable reviews. Like the Raimi series, it managed to pull in a box office of
$757.9 million; becoming the 7th-highest grossing film of the year. As
part of the film’s promotion, Kellogg’s also rebooted their Spider-Man cereal
as The Amazing Spider-Man cereal. This time, the web pieces were all
colored red and two-toned green marshmallows were added to represent the
Lizard’s face. The back of the box featured a word, trivia and maze game.

Devised by Otto Klement and Lewis Bixby, Fantastic Voyage
is a 1966 science fiction film directed by Richard Fleischer about a crew
of explorers that utilized shrinking technology. Originally meant to be set in
the 19th Century with a heavy influence from Jules Verne
stories, all of that was abandoned for a more contemporary Cold War
setting by screenwriter Harry Kleiner.
Both the United States and the
Soviet Union had developed shrinking technology that can only be utilized for
an hour at a time before the shrunken objects revert to their original size.
Soviet scientist Dr. Jan Benes (Jean
Del Val) figured out how to keep things shrunken indefinitely and attempted
to defect to America. However, he ended up placed in a coma during an
assassination attempt. To save his life, the Combined Miniature Deterrent
Forces (C.M.D.F.) shrank a submarine populated by pilot Captain Bill Owens (William Redfield), Dr. Michaels
(Donald Pleasence), surgeon
Dr. Peter Duval (Arthur Kennedy)
and his assistant, Cora Peterson (Raquel
Welch) and sent it into Benes’ bloodstream to remove a blood clot from his
brain. Despite racing the clock and dealing with the dangers natural to the
inner workings of the human body, the crew also had to content with the
potential that one of them was an assassin sent to finish the job.
The movie crew navigating the blood stream.
The film was released by 20th Century Fox on August 24,
1966. Despite favorable reviews and a box office of $12 million, the film ended
up taking a loss overall. It was nominated for five and won two Academy Awards. Isaac Asimov was
retained by Bantam Books to write
of the film, and was allowed to deal with several plot holes he found in
the original script. Because of his writing speed and the film’s comparatively
slow production, the book ended up coming out 6 months before the film.
The cartoon crew: Guru, Erica, Kidd and Busby.
Two years later, Filmation Associates
acquired the rights to make an animated series based on the film. However,
instead of being a direct continuation, they only took the basic premise and
introduced an all-new line-up of characters as well as several overall changes.
The name of the organization was changed to the Combined Miniature Defense Force;
which used their shrinking technology to infiltrate and investigate things that
normal-sized agents couldn’t. Instead of just the single hour, each episode of
shrinking could last 12. The team was comprised of scientist Busby Birdwell
(Marvin Miller), who created their special transport vehicle, the Voyager;
special agent Commander Jonathan Kidd (Ted Knight); doctor and biologist Erica
Lane (named for Erika Scheimer,
voiced by Jane Webb); and Guru (Miller), master of strange mystic powers. They
answered to a mysterious shadowy being known only as The Chief (Miller) and the
shrinking apparatus was overseen by its inventor, Professor Carter (Knight).
The Voyager preparing for shrinkage.
Fantastic Voyage debuted on ABC on September 14, 1968. Each episode saw the team
tasked with dealing with strange biological life forms, radio waves, super
spies and master villains. The episode “The Mind of the Master” played out in a
similar fashion to the original film. The team’s mission would be laid out for
them in the opening minutes by the Chief and Carter before cutting to the show’s
introduction, which featured a descriptive narration by Knight. The series was
written by Ken Sobol, David Melmuth, Eric Blair and H.F. Mauberly, with Sobol
serving as story editor. Robert Allen
and Ray Ellis (as Spencer
Raymond) composed the series’ music.
Professor Carter watches the missions from HQ.
The show only ran for a single
season. While it was in production, Aurora Model
Company was contracted to produce a model kit of
the Voyager.It was released months after the show’s
cancellation, and as a result only one press run was made. Due to the limited
availability and the generally poor care of sold models being treated as toys,
it has become an incredibly rare model and expensive on the secondary market. Polar Lights
(whose name was an homage to Aurora) had acquired the rights to reproduce the
kit, but passed on it citing a prohibitive cost for what was essentially a
niche item. Moebius Models would
eventually retool an original kit and put it back
into production. Milton Bradley released a board game based on the show in 1968, and Gold
Key Comics, who published the film adaptation comic, published a comic
series for the show that ran for two issues in 1969. To date, the
series has only been released
to DVD in 2011 by Revelation
Films in the United Kingdom.

Toy Storybecame the
first full-length completely computer-generated animated feature to hit
theaters in 1995, pulling in an impressive box office, igniting interest in
others studios for computer animation, and beginning the long-standing
relationship between Disney and Pixar Studios. The film centered on a world in
which toys came to life whenever people weren’t around. Woody (Tom Hanks), the pull-string
cowboy doll that was once the favorite in a group of toys, found himself
replaced by the newer, electronic talking Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) action figure. This
led to many quarrels fueled by Woody’s jealousy until Woody came to accept Buzz
and welcomed him into the group. Toy Story became a media franchise,
spawning sequels, specials, books, games and even a Buzz
Lightyear animated series.
In 2002, as part of a
multi-year deal with Disney, Kellogg’s
released three cereals based on Disney characters. One of them was Buzz Blasts
cereal, centered on the Buzz character. The timing of this release was
interesting as the animated series was currently in syndicated reruns at this
time and the next Toy
Story sequel was 8 years away.
Buzz Blasts featured
cereal pieces in the shape of flying saucers, the Little Green Men toys featured
in the movies and the cartoon, space ships and Buzz’s face. The pieces were
done in Buzz’s purple and green color scheme, with all the pieces being purple
and the flying saucers having an extra green ring as well as blue flecks. The
cereal actually had a long life, running until 2005. The initial box featured a
foil-stamped embossed logo and a game where you had to find the different space
ship amongst three different fleets. At one point, a music CD with an
exclusive song about Buzz was included as a premium. Another premium involved 3-D
glasses to use with a new game on the back panel.
Lasseter went on to become a
founding member of animation studio Pixar
where he created short, computer-animated films to show off the Pixar
Image Comptuer’s abilities. His 1988 short Tin Toy,
was told from the perspective of a toy and catered to Lasseter’s love of
classic toys, became the first computer-generated film to win the Academy Award
for Best Animated Short Film. The short had gained Disney’s attention, and
after a series of negotiations the two studios arranged to join together and
turn Tin Toy into a feature film called Toy Story.
Concept art for Buzz Lightyear.
The story was
drafted by Lasseter, Andrew
Stanton and Pete Docter
to have Tinny from Tin Toy pairing up with a ventriloquist’s dummy to go
on a grand adventure. Studio head Jeffrey Katzenberg
felt the story was problematic and had them reshape it to be more of a mismatched
buddy picture. Tinny, deemed too antiquated, became a military action figure
before being given a space theme and named Buzz Lightyear (after Buzz Aldrin).
His space suit was modeled after those worn by Apollo
astronauts and G.I.
action figures, and colored green and purple after Nancy Lasseter’s
favorite colors. Character designer Bud Luckey
suggested that Woody (named for the material he was originally composed of)
should be changed into a cowboy; a contrast of themes Lasseter liked.
Eventually, they scrapped the dummy angle altogether and turned Woody into a
soft pull-string doll (keeping the name as an homage to Western actor Woody Strode).
The final script would be written by Stanton with Joel Cohen,
Whedon and Lasseter would
serve as director.
Toy Story centered on a world
in which toys would come to life whenever people weren’t around. They had their
own lives, personalities and autonomy, but they loved nothing more than to be
played with. The world of a particular group of toys was changed when a new toy
was introduced: the electronic talking Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen); a toy based
off of an in-universe popular cartoon show. Woody
the original favorite toy of young Andy (John Morris), had become
jealous of Buzz and all the attention he was getting from Andy and his fellow
toys. Buzz was also completely oblivious that he was a toy and believed himself
to be THE Buzz Lightyear. Their squabbling resulted in Woody and Buzz ending up
in the clutches of their toy-destroying neighbor, Sid (Erik von Detten).
Woody and Buzz had to work together and escape in order to return home before
their family was set to move away.
The ever-growing members of the Toy Story franchise.
Toy Story opened on November
22, 1995, becoming the first feature-length film to be completely computer
animated. The film was a massive success, earning $373.6 million at the box
office, critical acclaim, and several awards and nominations. The film not only
began Disney and Pixar’s long-standing partnership (which eventually culminated
in Disney buying the studio outright), but generated interest in the technology
used for the film and production of other computer-generated media.
Toy Story has since become a
franchise with three theatrical sequels, two holiday television specials, three
theatrical shorts, video games, comic books, actual toys and more. While work
was being done on Toy Story 2, which expanded both Woody and Buzz’s
family of characters with companion toys from their respective franchises, the
idea was floated of turning the Buzz Lightyear show into an actual
Stones was approached by Disney to create the series on an
$8 million budget, along with Mark McCorkle
Schooley. Initially, they had to juggle their duties on Buzz
Lightyear with their work on Hercules:
The Animated Series.
Buzz and Warp Darkmatter rescuing the LGMs.
Buzz Lightyear of Star Command centered
on the space-faring exploits of Space Ranger Buzz Lightyear (Patrick Warburton)
as he protected the cosmos from the sinister machinations of his arch-rival,
the evil Emperor Zurg (Wayne Knight, who voiced the human villain of the second
movie). While on a mission to rescue three Little Green Men (or LGMs, the toys
encountered in a claw machine in the first movie, all voiced by Warburton),
Buzz’s partner Warp
Bader) was lost, causing Buzz to vow to never have a

fate had other plans. Buzz’s superior, Commander Zeb Nebula (Adam Carolla)
issued Buzz a new partner: Princess Mira Nova (Nicole Sullivan), heir to the Tangean
throne with the ability to “ghost” through solid matter and read minds. The
LGMs, who served as the loyal backbone of Star Command by developing and
maintaining all of their equipment, provided Buzz with another partner in the
form of the robot XR (Larry Miller & Neil Flynn). The eXperimental Ranger
(although called eXpendable by most), was originally emotionless and designed
to observe and learn from Buzz. And, in the event of his destruction (which
happened on every mission), the LGMs could rebuild him promptly (the first time
resulted in XR gaining an annoyingly animated personality). But yet a third
partner presented himself in the form of Booster (Stephen Furst), a super
strong and super dimwitted Star Command janitor who desired nothing more than
to become a Ranger and achieved his dream when he helped defeat one of Zurg’s
schemes. Together they became Team Lightyear.
wasn’t without his own allies. The bug-like Grubs (all Frank Welker) served the
same functions as the LGMs, albeit less competently. The Brain Pods
(various) were brains in jars on robotic bodies that served as Zurg’s
scientists and researchers while constantly plotting their escape from Zurg’s
clutches. The Hornets
were Zurg’s robotic foot soldiers. They were largely ineffective and extremely
expendable, constantly being destroyed en masse by the Space Rangers. It would
come to be revealed that Warp had secretly been working for Zurg all along and
became Agent Z after faking his death. He gained a robotic arm that could house

Lightyear of Star Command was finished long before Toy Story
2, so it was decided to hold on to it until after the film was released.
This gave the production crew a chance to work on a direct-to-video movie to
introduce the concept and new characters that would also double as the series’
first three episodes.Pixar created a new short intro starring the Toy
Story 2 characters settling in to watch the movie, which was otherwise
traditionally animated and had the highest quality of the entire series. Allen
reprised his role as Buzz in the intro and re-recorded over Warburton’s recording
(which was restored when the movie was broken up into individual episodes, and
the Pixar portion omitted). Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure
Begins was released on VHS
on August 8, 2000, becoming the first spin-off of a Pixar film. The series
itself hit television screens on October 2, 2000. It aired both as a feature of
One Tooweekday programming block
and as part of ABC’s
One Saturday Morningprogramming block,
effectively airing seven days a week as a result for its entire 65-episode run.
Each episode ended with Buzz saying his famous line, “To infinity…and beyond!”
Lightyear continued to air on UPN until 2003 when Disney’s
partnership with the network came to an end. During that time, it also aired on
Channel and again from 2006 to 2008 before leaving United
States airwaves. It was also seen on Toon Disney
from 2003-2007. The episodes “Inside Job” and “Conspiracy” were taken out of
rotation following the 9/11
terrorist attacks due to their dealing with assassination
elements, and “Super Nova” for its allusion to drug abuse. Lasseter ended up
not being a fan of the series, resulting in Pixar barring any elements of it
from being used in any other Toy Story media and even disallowing the
mention of the cartoon in the movies. To date, only The Adventure Begins has
been released on home media as well as the episode “Planet
of the Lost”.
