Starting this week I am cutting down on my comic postings on the Imaginary World. I was doing A Slice or Mr Toast, the Imaginary World and GAGS each once a week. From now on I will continue to do GAGS every Friday and just one World of Mr Toast comic on Monday. I have just been getting busy with so many other Mr Toast projects and I want the quality of the strips to remain at the same level.

I was digging around in some boxes this weekend and ran accross this art. The first 3 piece were for Kellogg's cereals. The owl character was never used but Kellogg's used the same sort of idea with Newton the Owl on Cocoa Hoots in the 1970's. The final 3 pieces are from Post cereal and show some of the artists thinking about names and animals for a numbers cereal similiar to Alpha-bits. It is very cool to see the artist thinking about all the possibilities.

From 1968 to 1970, Quaker cereal teamed up with Matchbox to offer mailaway diecast cars. In 1968, you could choose between 6 vehicles including a Ford Mustang and Greyhound Coach. The 1969 you had 6 new choices including Ford GT Racer and a Merc Police car. By 1970, each different Quaker cereal had a different vehicle you could order including the King Size Pipe Truck on Cruchberries. By 1972, Matchbox was out and Marx was in with an offer for their Elecrtic Lightrucks.
