Magic Trix Aren't Just For Kids
The gang from the "Big G Cereals" is featured here in Magic Show tricks created by Dan Witkowski. There were 6 of these books available inside specially marked boxes of General Mills Cereals back in 1987. I only got this one.
There used to be three Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal baker characters, but only Wendell, the one with glasses, survived (and became much cartoonier).
I always liked the "Big G" characters. Many years ago, they were also the mascots of the now-closed Opryland theme park in Tennessee.
General Mills developed many creative (and sometimes unusual) cereals over the years (especially in the 1980s). Check out more at Topher's Breakfast Cereal Character Guide.
