Roughing Up The Lucky Charms Demon

I love these commercials because the kids act just the way real kids did back when I was eating Lucky Charms.
It's funny that the demon character is the witless innocent.
The Christian youths leap upon the pagan apparition.

Look how much attention the animator paid to manhandling the sugar imp.

The kid on the left is a funny design. The one on the right looks like the Cheerios Kid! Maybe his secret identity is a bully.
I think it's funny how many cartoons portray kids as sweet and cute little innocent things when in reality they are diminutive monsters full of the common evils of larger humanity, yet in more distilled and direct form.
Old cereal commercials tell it like it is.
