We’re kicking off our own version of Shark Week here on Saturday Mourning Cartoons. On this week’s episode we’ll be talking about the 90s animated series, Street Sharks, but believe it or not, I couldn’t find any breakfast cereal tie-ins to this zany show. Instead, I found this 80s retro commercial for Cheerios which features two kids powering up to take down a shark who’s just being a real jerk.
As a bonus, I’ve included a retro commercial for shark-shaped noodles from Chef Boyardee, which were then repurposed* with a cartoonish label in order to hawk Street Sharks. (Apparently Chef Boyardee’s Street Shark-Fin Soup didn’t go over so well in the States.) Enjoy the retro below!
[Editor’s Note: The Cheerios commercial with the shark has disabled embedding for some reason, so here’s one with a sawfish instead. Close enough, right?]
*No sharks were harmed in the making of this cereal/soup/blog post.
