Fred Flintstone has graced every box of Pebbles cereal for over 70 years. And now, even though it’s temporary, Post is replacing him with a really badly drawn cartoon John Cena. I’m honestly not sure which annoys me worse— the breaking of tradition by removing Fred from the box or the fact that with all their money, cereal companies like Post and General Mills won’t hire people who can actually draw to design their cereal boxes.
