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.

    My dad bought this cereal for me (we watched the A-Team together). I don't really remember what it tasted like. I got the stickers and both were the same style - I still have them!

    Does anyone remember getting Mr. T shoelaces if you sent in enough box tops? I had some.

    This was my all-time favorite. To me, it was better than Crunch Berries. I have not been able to find any other cereal with that same taste as the Mr. T cereal. I was not even a huge fan of Mr. T when I was a kid but the cereal was awesome! The Donkey Kong cereal was similar but still not quite as good. But it was discontinued in the 1980s also.
