NICKELODEON'S GREEN SLIME CEREAL
Robert Berry webmaster@retrocrush.com

Ever since Kellogg's had the miserable "Frosted Blobs O' Goo" in the early 60s, the breakfast world has largely shunned cereals named after viscous fluids.  So you can understand my delight when I was at the grocery store and stumbled Nickelodeon Green Slime Limited Edition Cereal! 

Who would have thought there'd be a cereal with the balls to call itself GREEN SLIME?  The box is fantastic, with a bright orange and neon green color scheme that leaps right off the shelf.  I had to give it a try. 

First off, the cereal doesn't quite live up to the gruesome name.  One would expect it to turn into some sort of sickening glop, but it stays surprisingly crunchy in milk. 

As far as the taste?  The box says it's "Fruity Sweetened Corn Puffs with Marshmallows", but unless sugar is a fruit, I couldn't tell you what fruit it actually tasted like.  After eating a whole bowl, however, it did make my head spin a bit.  In a 30 gram serving, there's a whopping 14 grams of sugar!  In fact, I'm still riding the sugar high as I write this.

Man, to think an entire empire was built on a little show from Canada, "You Can't Do That On Television" who's claim to fame was goofy skits featuring green slime being dumped on kids heads.  I always dug the girl, Moose, when I was growing up (pictured here for your viewing pleasure).

     

Another cast member from the show was none other than Alanis Morissette. 

       

At last, I will finally have content on the page for all the people who type "Green good on Alanis" in the xxxgaggle search engine now!

Overall, I'd rate Green Slime Cereal 4 out of 5 Loops!

Now let's just hope NBC really isn't serious about making that FEAR FACTOR cereal!


BRANDON BIRD: POP-CULTURE PAINTER

"Elysium" (c)2001 by Brandon Bird

Anyone who knows this site knows what a pop culture junkie I am.  And I've had a lot of fun making crazy pictures of Mr. T and other elements of the retro lexicon into insane crayon drawings.  Boy was I blown away when I discovered the work of Brandon Bird, however!  This former fellow Sacramento resident (who currently lives in Santa Cruz, CA), makes some of the most wonderfully delicious masterpieces I've seen in my life.  Whether its Bea Arthur wrestling dinosaurs, or Abe Lincoln beating up George Washington "Fight Club" style, his subject matter is original, jaw-dropping, and funny as hell.
