Bigg Mixx
From: Kellogg's
Introduced in 1990

In the Spring of 1990, Kellogg's introduced Bigg Mixx, a ready-to-eat cereal with rolled oats, rice, toasted corn flakes and whole grain wheat. The cereal came in 2 varieties: regular and raisin.

Bigg Mixx was promoted as a "big mix" of Kellogg's then-existing cereals, with ads alluding that the cereal was swept together off of the Kellogg's factory floor.

The mascot for for the cereal was a "big mix" of animals named Bigg Mixx. He had the head of rooster, moose antlers, the snout of a pig and the fur of wolf. His wide, uneven eyes gave the impression that Bigg Mixx was loopy and all "mixed" up.

The side-panel on some boxes of the cereal gave a newspaper-style account of the character's origins:

Combine the wild appetites of a wolf, a moose, a pig, and a chicken, and you have Bigg Mixx - the legendary Chicken-wolf-Moose-pig of the Yakima Valley.

The first reported Bigg Mixx sighting took place in 1978 when Yakima native, Travis Uddlebock, was hiking near Toppenish Creek.

"I saw the tip of an antler peeking out over a bush and I heard a loud snort. I thought it was a wart hog, so you can imagine my surprise when he stood upright on two paws, flapped his wings, and howled like a wolf. I laughed so hard I passed out."

Since then, there have been countless other sightings - in the woods, at shopping malls, and even once on a subway in New York City (unconfirmed). And eye witnesses all agree, "He eats like a pig."

Now, in the spirit of this noble creature, Kellogg's introduces Bigg Mixx cereal.

"I'm sure Bigg Mixx would be proud knowing Kellogg's had named a new cereal after him," Uddlebock explained. "He's a proud creature. A little stupid, but definitely proud."

Sightings of the cereal in grocery stores began to cease in 1991. Bigg Mixx was discontinued within two years of it's debut.

In 2007, "The Top 10 Blog" ranked the Bigg Mixx character as the 4th Scariest Cereal Box Personality Of All Time.

Boy (V.O.): I was shooting baskets when I felt a wild hunger. I had to eat fast. The ball was too big so I went for my shoe. He came from nowhere...

Bigg Mixx: Waaaooo... oooo... oooo

Boy (V.O.): Bixx Mixx... the Chicken-wolf-Moose-pig of the Yakima Valley... what's he doing in (Sweet Oak)... he gave me this (a box of cereal).

Ads for Bigg Mixx Cereal portrayed the character Bigg Mixx as constantly hungry and borderline-retarded.

There has been some speculation that the "Chicken-wolf-Moose-pig" character may have been the inspiration for the ManBearPig character featured in a 2006 episode of South Park entitled "ManBearPig".

Bigg Mixx had other premiums and related items. The ones I have: plush doll; t-shirt; tote bag; beach blanket, pin, pin with Olympic rings, doll house sized cereal boxes (both purple and white); and watch (send away premium). Others I know that exist: frisbee and sunglasses.

I still have coupons for Bigg Mixx that I never got to use because they quit making it. 35 cents off and no expiration date! I loved this cereal and the marketing campaign - yellow police tape, sweeping the cereal off the floor, the Chickenwolf Moosepig - was amazing.

The stuff of legend. Only 1 in 500 people I know have any recollection of this gem. Loved the raisin even more than the original.
