Weird mouth placement.

Bu whatever, I don't really care, I haven't had froot loops since I was young, so I could care less what it looks like now.

And its not ruining my childhood like so many headlines are saying, since last I checked kelloggs didn't change my memories of eating the stupid cereal when I was a kid.

Luckily, the cereal box was finished by the Korean animators.

It's an anime character.

 

Any anime artist worth their salt would run circles around this pitiful redesign.

Prime example of "if it ain't broke, DON'T FIX IT!"

Awful. I didn't realize CalArts transcended animation and is now infecting brand mascots.

The :censored: is going on with his beak? It looks like an acid trip, not a toucan's beak.

I actually like the new art style rather than the weird psuedo live-action toucan that looks like it belongs in a children's movie from 2005. That being said, there's too much going on in his beak. They should have stayed with the pink/orange/red color scheme rather than going full rainbow.

To me, it's obviously a downgrade, but I have memory-driven ties to the character and thus a nostalgic bias.  While I don't think the new Toucan Sam will sell much more cereal, maybe kids will generate their own nostalgia to the character.  

 

It sucks, but things change.

This.

 

If you're commenting in this thread, you're not the target audience for Toucan Sam. Toucan Sam has changed quite significantly over the years, and you're likely attached to the one that was on the Froot Loops box when you were a kid.

 

Which one is "correct?"

Answer: All of them.

 

Things change, deal with it. Not everything is an outrage, especially not a redesign of a cereal cartoon character. Do I particularly like it? No - but it's not meant for me.

I eat Froot Loops all the time. Now I’ll just have to eat them in disgust. The Froot Loops themselves will still be good, but I’ll hate every minute of it with that acid trip bird staring at me the whole time.

Some old Fruit Loops boxes with different Toucan Sam designs for context:

No excuses!!!!! This is why this new Toucan Sam gets laughed at! They can do better than this Nickelodeon looking rubbish.
