Kellogg’s Vintage – Day 4

Kellogg’s Vintage – RoseArt – approx. 125/500 pieces

Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your perspective) we have come to the end of the vintage Kellogg’s mascot puzzles. They were so entertaining to put together and a welcome way for me to step back into puzzles after a long hiatus. 💕🧩

I’m old, but apparently not old enough to remember who two of those mascots are. I know the frog in the middle is Dig ‘Em, but the other two don’t look familiar at all. AT ALL. I feel old.

I am old.

There was a bit of sleuthing required to find out their names; the monkey on the left is Jose and he was the mascot for Cocoa Krispies. He didn’t last long at that job because it was felt that Jose with his cabana boy hat and bongo drum was an ethnic stereotype. Having seen quite a few older commercials from the 50’s and 60’s I absolutely wouldn’t doubt that he was stereotypical – at the very least.

The chipmunk on the right is Sugar Pops Pete. He sure looks like he’s having a good time, doesn’t he? I used to like Sugar Pops when I was a young’un; it’s another one of those cereals that ended up taking the word “sugar” out of their name. Heaven forbid! Sugar! *clutching my pearls*

If you’re new here, these are 500 piece puzzles from RoseArt/Lafayette Puzzle Factory; each puzzle is a set of 12-18 smaller shaped puzzles in various themes. Each smaller puzzle has a different colored backing – you can choose to work the entire set as one large 500 piece puzzle, or sort them according to color and work on each smaller image individually. I’ve found that either way is entertaining, it all depends on what you prefer.

These sets of small shaped puzzles always bring me joy. If they look like you might enjoy them too they are highly recommended. 🥣

  1. I’m pretty sure I’ve done a White Mountain puzzle (it’s not on my blog) that had both Jose and Super Pops Pete in it. Maybe Super Pop Pete’s gun is like a water gun but it sprays sugar instead!

    And I *think* Spin Master Games has a cereal themed multi-pack puzzle that was released within the past year that features both those guys too.

      1. WMP has released several (if not more) cereal themed puzzles over the years and we have a few. The one with Jose and Sugar Pops Pete is titled “Cereal Boxes” with a copyright of 2013.

        I found one listing for it on ebay
