I Want My Maypo 4

Classic cereal commercial, air date 1956. John and Faith Hubley did the animation production on this spot. 60 seconds.


The famous tagline, "I want my Maypo!" is uttered by the little boy there. This spot is seen briefly in Brad Bird's THE IRON GIANT (1999).


Hey, that's our Kid! This is the frame I chose for The Retro Kid icon. Fun!
