Kellogg's Rice Krispies

To follow up on the Kellogg's Corn Flakes post a few weeks ago, enjoy these Kellogg's Rice Krispies' ads.  The elf-like mascots, Snap, Crackle and Pop first appeared in the 1930s.  Here they are quite jolly in 1942

August 1942 "The American Home" magazine

War continues.  Their noses are smaller and while still smiling, they've traded their sports gear for rifles and look a little more aggressive in 1943

August 1943 "The American Home" magazine 

At some point within the next twelve years, they spiffed up the box art and happy children enjoy listening to their breakfast cereal talking.
