I had C-3POs once. I don't remember what they were like, but there was a C-3PO mask you could cut out of the box. I also had Strawberry Shortcake cereal once. It was good. It had that artificial strawberry flavor. Then there was Morning Funnies. They weren't very good.

Weetabix had a promotion based around "Star Trek - The Motion Picture". You could cut out little characters from the cardboard of the box and get them to stand up. In 1979, our expectations of life were different to today. Kind of like if M&Ms sponsored a production of the The Cherry Orchard.
