The sports champions on the front of the box.
I have an acquaintance she eats 1/3 from this, what I eat. I can’t help, but I need it!!
I remember Bob Richards pictured on the box.
Whatever he’s done, I will always be a fan of Pete Rose.
Because when he beat Ty Cobb’s hitting record, he knocked that obnoxious Mary Lou Retton off the Wheaties box and TV ads!!
For that alone, he has my UNDYING gratitude!!
Almost as good as Milky Bones…right, Rover?
Michael Jordan and Mary Lou Retton and about 10 others might disagree .
I hated Wheaties. Still do, lol! But they’re healthy, I guess. Like oatmeal which I also do not prefer ;) Welcome back from a long vacation, Brian. You’re my favorite cartoonist!
After 5 weeks of reruns, back to new Red and Rover strips.
So glad to see the 06/22 date againYou boys are the champions !!!
Love my Wheaties! Have eaten them every day for 65+ years and am still alive. (And my wife thinks I am a champion!)
We ate a TON of cereal back in the day but almost never Wheaties! Not enough sugar!
Bruce Jenner claimed s/he ate them growing up.
Red sure stays slim with ALL that he eats. Share a bite with Rover.
I’ve paid my dues
Time after time
I’ve done my sentence
But committed no crime
And bad mistakes
I’ve made a few
I’ve had my share of sand
Kicked in my face
But I’ve come through
And we mean to go on and on and on and on
We are the champions, my friends
And we’ll keep on fighting till the end
We are the champions
No time for losers
’Cause we are the champions of the World
I used to adore Wheaties. Once I got older, my stomach couldn’t take it. No, it’s not the milk, it’s the Wheaties…and Wheat Chex.
Today’s strip is dated 2022. The reruns are over and we’re back to brand new Red and Rover. The reruns and people’s reactions to them were well worth reading.
I love Wheaties, but they’re too expensive and never discounted ‘on sale.’ $6.99 for a 15.6 oz box? Give me a break. Are the overpaid athletes getting their cut of the sales price?
Bring back Buc Wheats!
Even at that age I knew it was for sports.
Also the breakfast of losers, but nobody ever counts them.
Not funny at all, not with people starving all over the world. Eating contests should be outlawed.
