King Vitaman!

I haven’t seen King Vitaman in the store since the late-80s, maybe early-90s, and I completely forgot about it until I was browsing through pictures of old cereal boxes on National Cereal Day earlier this week. I started humming the chorus to Celine Dion’s It’s All Coming Back To Me Nooooow when I saw the picture of the old King Vitaman box. I was all ready to declare in a HSOTD post that King Vitaman is dead, long live King Vitaman, but King Vitaman is still very much alive.

Wikipedia says that King Vitaman made its debut on the cereal scene in 1968. While many, many cereals were killed off and buried in the cereal graveyard, King Vitaman has outlived them and is still in some stores today. King Vitaman is a crown-shaped corn and oat cereal and it’s been compared to Cap’n Crunch. For the longest time, I thought it was King VitaMIN and thought his ass was eating spoonfuls of weird-looking vitamins like a crazy person.

Throughout the decades, King Vitaman himself has been played by cartoons and humans (including old-timey actor George Mann). I don’t remember seeing any King Vitaman commercials in the 80s, but there were many in the 70s. Those kids must majorly love that cereal, because having breakfast with a grandpa in king drag and a picnic table cape would kind of freak me out.

But creepiness aside, may King Vitaman live forever. Viva King Vitaman!
