The Hanna-Barbera characters have been used for all kinds of merchandising through the years. In the 1950s, the H-B stars were featured on Kellogg’s cereal boxes. Kellogg’s was of course the sponsor of the early H-B shows such as Huckleberry Hound. Here is Snagglepuss on Cocoa Krispies. Interestingly, he is not colored in his trademark pink but in a very standard-issue brown. Did Kellogg’s think that since Snagglepuss is a lion he should be brown? Or did they alter his famous color scheme because they wanted his color to reflect the cereal? Exit, stage right!
