Nintendo Cereal System Ad!
I was going through some old comic-books, and I stumbled upon this little gem from the late 80's:

Beat em and eat em, gents.

Seriously, is that not cool? (And note the tag-line at the end of the ad. Remind anybody else of a certain dirty game discussed recently on Retronauts?)

Yeah, this kind of stuff is cheesy, but I sort of miss the days when Nintendo was branching out into more than just video games. When was the last time Nintendo had breakfast cereals, or Saturday morning cartoons (I know about Kirby, I'm thinking of the biggies here)? As a company, they're not nearly as interested in putting their money into different licensing or business strategies as they used to be. Shouldn't we have a Nintendo theme park by now?
