My idea is a box of cereal named Scooby-Doo Cereal and it will consist of the whole Scooby-Doo gang and the monster machine van, and the characters will be made of marshmellow, and it will be like the Capn' Crunch cereal somewhat, and the front of the box will have the Scooby-Doo logo on the front and will have Scooby-Doo games on the back.

if u wish to contact me about this idea please contact me at my e-mail address which is: DeliciousMaMaSita2003@yahoo.com

Which Scooby Doo character are you? http://www.digital-monkey.net/
I'm Daphne. As you may have guessed. (Isn't cartoon cereal baked?) [pottedstu, Feb 21 2002, last modified Oct 04 2004]

       Don't hold your breath.
angel, Feb 21 2002

       Yeah. I'd like to see a judgment call from [jutta], but I don't think there's much of an idea here.
phoenix, Feb 21 2002

       Hey I've an idea. What about Dawson's Creek breakfast cereal? You could have marshmallow Katie Holmeses and a how annoying is James van der Beek puzzle. Or: "Mmm, a nice juicy bowl of Party of Five." (Repeat ad nauseam with different shows.)
pottedstu, Feb 21 2002

       This is as much of an idea as my "Assaultines" idea or Grimrock's wonderful "Stomach Settlers" idea and they're still around.

...now let's see who the _real_ rlbmd is...<rips off mask>...why, it's old man winters, who runs the haunted house at the amusement park!!!...

       I think this is baked in pretty much every aspect. They're not for sale now, but the Scooby-Doo Boo-Berry cereal has most of the features rlbmd describes. And there's plenty of similar cartoon-related cereals out there. As someone unfamiliar with American breakfast cereals, this is all fascinating.

       <seething> How dare they sully the majesty of Boo Berry cereal with that insipid cartoon? </seething>
snarfyguy, Sep 14 2003

       Heh. I think that mihali was on the right track. Scooby Doo mystery cereal. Each box really contains some other popular cereal but, until you open the box, you'll never know what it is. "So, they were only Cornflakes after all!"
DrBob, Sep 15 2003

       it's soo much like other cartoon cereals, make something fresh. [-]

       First, welcome to the Halfbakery. Don't let what I'm about to say deter you from contributing, because we love to have new members with fresh ideas.   

       Second, your comment, while dead on the money for accuracy, is pretty much what other Halfbakers had to say about this stinker of a post ten years ago. The only real reason to go digging up old ideas (especially the bad ones) is if you have an original, insightful point to make that nobody else has elicited.   

       I'd suggest contributing to the active discussions about current ideas (the ones that show up on the 'recent 3' page when you log in). Ignore the elitism, have fun, and remember that almost everybody was a newcomer once upon a time. One more tip: around here, vicious mockery is a sign of acceptance.

       I have to say this idea should be m-f-d'd, widely known to exist. (link)
jaksplat, Mar 17 2012

       While i suspect it's a lot older than this idea, for all i know, given that this is a decade old, the original poster might just have baked this themselves, which is what we're seeing in the link. I want to believe this but very much doubt this is so.

       //I want to believe this but very much doubt this is so.// A crisis of faith. About breakfast cereal.
mouseposture, Mar 17 2012

       For some reason, I spent about fifteen minutes searching the web and came up with no hard facts, but a lot of questionable information from which conclusions may be drawn. Here is what I learned during my wasted quarter-hour:   

       - The Scooby-Doo breakfast cereal was made by Kellogg's. It was introduced sometime in the late '90s, probably in 1998. It did not sell very well and was discontinued after a few years. It was definitely available in stores as late as 2005.   

       - The cereal was cinnamon-flavored and had large fruit- flavored marshmallow chunks that were supposed to resemble ghosts and monsters, which they did about as much as [The Alterother] resembles Christina Aguilera. The cereal itself was powdery and broke apart easily. All of these attributes were probably the cause of its discontinuation.   

       - There are a number of people who are quite upset about this and the number of forum posts, blog entries, and online petitions calling for its return is surprising, given all of the other really terrible things that people with no taste are clamoring to have ressurected.   

       These chilling findings suggest that not only is this baked, but it was in fact literally baked, packaged, and sold in every major grocery chain across the US, Canada, and the UK at the time this idea was posted. [rlbmd], whatever else it may have been, was an idiot with an email address that it probably thought was extremely clever and hilarious. It stooped here for a time, left its foul spoor, and moved on.
Alterother, Mar 17 2012

       Bun from me, because I have been watching a fair bit of the original show lately, with newfound appreciation for the jazzy soundtrack, the emphasis on logical problem solving, and Velma.
bungston, Mar 19 2012

       Be honest: it's just Velma, isn't it?
