Cheerios, a popular breakfast cereal made by General Mills, has featured the Muppets several times.
In 1979, Cheerios promoted The Muppet Movie with a series of trading cards printed on the back of the box. There were 12 cards in all, printed in four sets of three. There was also a mail-in offer for a small poster of the Muppet cast.
From June to August 1983, Cheerios promoted Muppet Magazine, offering a half-price subscription for three dollars. A series of four stickers was offered as an in-box premium, featuring photos of Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear and Gonzo in their roles as magazine editors.

In 1995, an illustrated box cover takeover by the Muppets tied in with the in-box light switch cover prize.
