Fruity Pebbles – Rappin’ Barney
The beloved Flintstones have served as the mascots for this classic cereal since it came out in 1971. Fruity Pebbles poured its way into all our hearts in the 1990s when Barney Rubble became a rapping Dick Tracy in one of their commercials.
Bet you didn’t think the Hanna-Barbera cartoon, iconic police detective, and spitting mad rhymes could all go together in one ad. Post Foods kept America’s love for the Flintstones alive with both Fruity and Cocoa Pebbles, and even today, it remains one of America’s most beloved breakfast items.
