Mornings are always a very spooky time. It’s a common mistake that nighttime is where the scary is at but truly, it’s in the AM. Sure the sun is coming up and the birds are singing, but at what cost?

Fortunately for those of us who live and breath for Halloween, General Mills has our back. One of the comforts to stave away the morning frights is sweet, sugary cereal. And when it comes to the top spots for any ghoul’s fave is a clear choice. But this year, our favorites are at it with an added bonus. Count Chocula, Boo Berry, and Franken Berry are all making triumphant returns, but with a new partnership with The Addams Family.


To help highlight the animated Addams Family film that will be released October 11th, 2019, the cereal titan brings in the creepiest family around to help usher in the best season of the year. This cross-promotion will be featured on the box and a little extra. The box designs will feature activities like pinpointing kooky-ooky mistakes. But the real prize is General Mills offering free, downloadable pumpkin stencils to really tie in the morning pumpkin carving routine.

The cross-promotion between the Monster Cereals and The Addams Family marks the first time Monster Cereals has joined teams with a film. While the official boxes aren’t released until September, you can download the stencils now on the official website The stencils themselves range from the titular monsters such as Count Chocula but also the creepy Addams family themselves. It’s a fun way for people to not only see the familiar faces of the monsters they look forward to every year but also the Addams Family themselves. Expect to stockpile as many boxes as possible and get your mornings off to the creepiest way possible.
