After 52 years, is Tony The Tiger still greeeeat?

Asked by john65pennington (29253points) November 5th, 2011

Tony the Tiger has been around in Kellogg’s commercials, since 1952. There is a new commerical version of Tony the Tiger, now showing on television. Tony has not grown older, like the rest of us in these new commercials. Tony looks as buff as ever. Question: should the current television commericals show Tony as an older version with greying hair or just keep the new commercials “as is”?

Frosted Flakes have also been around since 1952. Does that mean that Kellogg’s should only sell us stale cereal? Cartoons and cereals are products, not people. They stay the same while the audience changes.

Always is, always was. Great product from a great company. They were even good when they were referred to as Sugar Frosted Flakes. They should go back to calling that product by that name, and allow kids and adults as well to enjoy the product as intended—as Sugar Frosted Flakes!!

I think you should keep him as is. He’s the face of the product. They change Tony, they change the look of the whole brand
Also, I think your math is wrong.

Tony rocks.

What I really wonder about though, is that chicken from Corn Flakes. Man, that fucker’s got an agenda.


Oh yes, Frosted Flakes and Tony the Tiger are still GRRRRRRRRRRREAT!!!! Products may not be people, but they can have quality, and quality never goes out of style. It’s a great cereal.

If we’re going to go for reality, they should probably not make him older, but rather diabetic.
