He's Grrrrrrrreat!

Tony the Tiger sure has had a lot of work done over the years!
Born in 1952 as part of a contest, Tony beat out less popular Katy the Kangaroo, Elmo the Elephant and Newt the Gnu to become the official mascot for Kellogg's Frosted Flakes. Tony is father to Antoinette and Tony Jr, who had his own short lived spin-off cereal Frosted Rice and went on to replace his father in the early 2000's!
While nothing shows devotion to your favourite cereal mascot like a life-size bedazzled chain...

Junkfood has you covered this Fall with this (much more practical) retro Tony the Tiger tee! And if Froot Loops are more your thing, there's a Sam the Toucan tee.
