Mr. T

Mr. T From: Quaker
Introduced in 1984

Mr. T Cereal hit grocery stores in 1984, capitalizing on the success of actor/wrestler Laurence Tureaud's Mr. T Character. Mr. T had become recognizable to most Americans through his roles in Rocky III (1982) and The A-Team (1983-1987). His kid-friendly persona was strengthened though guest appearances on Silver Spoons (1982), Diff'rent Stokes (1983) and Alvin and the Chipmunks (1983).

Mr. T Cereal was a "Crispy Sweet Corn And Oats Cereal" that tasted somewhat similar to Cap'N Crunch. The cereal pieces were shaped like the letter "T". Commercials for the cereal used the catch-phrases, "Teaming up with Mr T. (Cereal)... It's cool" and "I pity the fool who don't eat my cereal".

The cereal made a a memorable appearance in the 1985 film, Pee Wee's Big Adventure in a scene where the character Pee Wee Herman poured cereal over pancakes and eggs while impersonating Mr. T's signature "pity the fool" line.

    Please bring this cereal back. I think it was the best cereal out there. Even better than Cap'n Crunch! I was a cereal expert in the early 80s and Mr T cereal tasted better than all the rest.

    Please bring this cereal back. And not for a limited time. Every time I go to the store, I will buy a box. I love this cereal and grew up on this cereal. They are the o.g. Cap'n Crunch.

    Please... bring Mr. T's cereal back to us! My brother and I loved this cereal when we were kids. Mr. T is a beloved idol of mine and it would be awesome to see this for a limited time. Kids today are indeed missing out on a lot of wholesome great stuff that we had available back then,when everything was made with love. A lot of you would agree with me when I say: I pity Quaker if it doesn't bring back Mr T's cereal to us!

    This cereal was awesome when I was a kid. Who didn't sit around the table at breakfast doing their best I Pity The Fool Who... Remember when Sugar Bear got strong after eating Super Golden Crisp? Lol cereal is so disappointing since then. They should do a retro run of all the old TV cereals for a year. They would make billions.

    This was nothing but a different version of Captain Crunch. But, since it's Mr. T... I loved it!
