Baron Von Redberry Cereal
Here's the follow-up to the previous post. Baron Von Redberry was the counterpart to Sir Grapefellow -- dueling World War One ace pilots for General Mills in the early 1970s.
The great Baron was German. "Achtung!" he would say (German for "warning!"), and "I'm der berry goodest!", as an answer to Sir Grapefellow's "I'm the grapest!"
The box here is from 1972 and shows the mail-away poster offer, collect all four.
I don't remember eating Redberry cereal like I did Sir Grapefellow, but it appears to have been similar to Frankenberry.
See the Sir Grapefellow blog post for a list of premiums, which includes Baron Von Redberry.
If you know of other premiums, TV commercials, or have anything else to share, please post a reply. I want this to be an open forum for cereal fans to share information.
Here are some iron-on patches of the good Baron.
Lastly, here's a newspaper ad from 1973.
