While this cereal appears to have only been available in U.K., the Top Cat character was very popular in the U.S. during the early 1960's. A Hanna-Barbera animated television series titled "Top Cat" ran on the ABC network in 1961 and 1962. Incidentally, the series was co-sponsored by Kellogg's. The cartoon cat also acted as a commercial spokesman for Kellogg's Corn Flakes in the early 60's.
Now forget all about the 60's, this cereal is from the early 90's. The "Best Before" date on the box we found is September 1993. The cereal's complete name is "Top Cat Sugar Frosted Flakes". It's described as "sugar coated corn flakes" and branded with a "Tesco Cartoon Club" logo.

What do you think of Top Cat Frosted Flakes?By maison
It's interesting that this would be a UK product where the show "Top Cat" was known as "Boss Cat".
