Cereal: It’s what’s for breakfast (and lunch and, sometimes, dinner).
Which is why we’re happy that Friday is National Cereal Day, celebrating Americans turning their backs on the pork, beef and alcohol they used to enjoy in their morning meals in favor of oats, grains and corn syrup.
To celebrate the occasion, why not pour out a big bowl of your favorite cereal – Grape-Nuts with blueberry syrup, we’re talking to you – and load up Netflix with these films, which we’ve reimagined to be cereal-themed.

Cereal Mom, 1994
