Funko is back to make breakfast the most terrifying meal of the day.
The toy manufacturer, best known for creating the expansive Funko Pop! line of figures, has recently gotten into the cereal game. They first announced the release of a movie-themed line of cereals last April called FunkO's.
While they tapped a wide range of cinematic icons for inspiration, a few of their cereals featured horror icons like Freddy Krueger and Elvira, the Mistress of the Dark. Now Beetlejuice and Pennywise are scaring their way into your breakfast routine.
That's right, everyone's favorite bio-exorcist and everyone's least favorite dancing clown will soon be available in their own sugary cereal. The announcement came with the appropriate tagline: "Creep Up Your Breakfast."
Here's Funko's official statement:
"Funko, purveyors of pop culture and all things awesome, is committed to helping you start the day off right by putting the fun back in breakfast with FunkO’s. And as we all know from Saturday morning commercials; every breakfast starts with a bowl of brightly colored cereal that comes out of a box with a really cool mascot on the front and a prize inside!"
Yes, every box of FunkO's is helping to restore the beloved tradition of the coveted collectible lurking at the bottom of the cereal box.
If you're looking to add a box to your kitchen or to your collectibles, the Beetlejuice cereal will be exclusive to Box Lunch Gifts, whereas Pennywise will only be floating around at your local Hot Topic. Because why not, right?
This news does ask one important question: Which one will you try first?
