Toucan Sam Felled by Nutritionists

From the save us from ourselves department comes the news that the days of lovable cartoon characters hawking sugary cereal are numbered. Kellog's has recently come under pressure from advocacy groups who claim the products marketed towards kids contribute to obesity. Tony the Tiger and Dig 'Em are also facing execution. As our own formative years and eventual obsession with automobiles were shaped in large part by the likes of Gummy Rings, Clatterbad Clara, and the Coyote chasing the Road Runner in a dragster, we lament the coming of Global Warming Gus and Nutritional Nancy hawking kids cereal.
