Classic Commercial: Honey Nut Cheerios from 1984

I was only 3 years old when this commercial originally aired.  Now 25 years later, I still remember it.  It’s strange how certain things stick with you.

  • The Bee was nameless until the year 2000

  1. Hahaha, awesome! So for his 21st birthday he got a name, WTF is that? I’d be pissed 😛

    That’s a great commercial. You can’t go wrong with HNCs!

    I love Billy West…especially as Doug….you know, I even liked the New Disney Doug….expect the whole thing with Roger getting rich and all.

    Billy West is the Man! Futurama is my all-time favorite show.

    I thought Honey Nut Cheerios was older than 30 years… Although 30 years is a fairly respectable amount of time… Wow, now I feel old.

    @ Justin … Well Cheerio’s (I think) have been around since the 1940s…but Honey Nut didn’t come out until 1979. How could people stand it that long without some Honey Nut?

    You feel old?! I remember when there was no such thing as Honey Nut Cheerios.

    @ Ryan

    We didn’t know any better. Cheerios were great with lots of sugar dumped all over them.

  5. Heather says:

    I agree with Raiders757-The sugar definitely makes the Cheerios.

    I like the new Banana Nut Cheerios. They are really good. The Multi-grain are pretty good too.

    I loves me some Honey Nut Cheerios. Straight outta the box, even!

    I can’t believe these launched in 1979. I should file a grievance against my family for feeding me regular Cheerios until at least 1989.
