I was not making this up in my mind. It exists.
22 January 2009 | by mclainrsSee all my reviews

Wow! It is not a dream. I have been looking for this movie for a while now. My classmate remembers it, but no one else has heard of it. Just like everybody has said,"on a rainy day in elementary school we watched this movie...." (Crestwood, Visalia Ca.) I have to see it again just to know why it has stuck with me. Does anybody remember the cartoon superhero and a very sugary cereal, or something like that. I think they had commercials for this cereal, but it made your teeth fall out or something like that? This sounds like a stupid description, but I can't remember much more, it was 25 or so years ago. Oh yeah, and that orange monkey puppet thing? what was that?
