Ice Cream Jones

Ice Cream Jones was a cartoon character and also a spokesperson for the Ice Cream Cones breakfast cereal, that made by General Mills. Since the cereal came in to the shape of ice cream cones and good scoops, the idea was that Ice Cream Jones distributed the cereal from his bicycle, in the similar manner to that of an ice cream truck. In the TV advertisements, he use to declare (in song), "My name's Ice Cream Jones, and I'm delivering' my ice cream cones, in the new ice cream cereal for the breakfast and with the great taste of ice cream cones!" The cereal was discontinued in 1987 along with Mr. Jones.Ice Cream Jones
