Cereal Project > Post > Ghosties

From: Post

This little cereal never went to market.

Post Ghosties was developed to the point that a scratch commercial was created consisting of filmed story boards and a rough audio overlay including a jingle sung by Casper The Friendly Ghost. While we don't know if an actual edible cereal was ever created, the narrative of the commercial indicated that Post Ghosties would have been a corn cereal "tumbled" in honey.

The character of Casper first appeared in a childrens story book in the late 1930's. He then went on to star in a series of cartoon shorts for Paramount in the 40's and 50's. In the early 60's, Casper began appearing on network TV, most notably in ABC's 1963 program The New Casper Cartoon Show. Casper has remained a popular cartoon and comic book character ever since. In 1995, a full-length motion picture titled Casper starring Christina Ricci and Bill Pullman appeared in theaters.

If you have any information pertaining to the date the scratch commercial for Post Ghosties (screen captures below) was made, please leave a comment below.
