Mr. T cereal (Quaker, 1984)
Mr. T was awarded his own cereal in 1984. Mr. T “debuted” in pop culture in 1982 in Rocky III. He moved to TV in 1983 on his show The A-Team until 1987. He guested on Silver Spoons (1982) and Diff’rent Strokes and Alvin and the Chipmunks (1983).
Mr. T cereal was a crispy sweet corn and oat cereal that tasted similar to Cap’N Crunch. Obviously, the cereal pieces were shaped like the letter T. The cereal was made famous in Pee Wee’s Big Adventure (1985) when Pee Wee poured the cereal over his pancakes and eggs.
