Magnet pictures a 1950 advertisement from Kelloggs, promoting Raisin Bran cereal. The ad appeared in comic books and appealed to young people by featuring jet fighter plane toys that came inside the box.
The Korean War was in progress and many children had fathers, uncles and brothers among the fighting forces, where jets played a new and critical role.
Planes in the series included the Lockheed F 80 Shooting Star, Northrup X4, Martin XB 51, Republic F84, Convair XF 92 A Flying Triangle, Republic XF 91 Interceptor, North American F86 Sabrejet, Lockheed XF 90, Douglas Skyrocket and Republic F84F Thunderjet.
Kellogg's Raisin Bran was 5 years old when this advertisement appeared, and the Kellogg company was a half century old. The company maintains a wonderful Kellogg timeline on its website with hundreds of pictures and tidbits about the company's history.
