    Having not been seen since their original showings in the 1969-70 season, the following will be transcripts of the three Kellogg's cereal spots featuring the Vulture Squadron, which aired during the last commercial break of the Dastardly & Muttley show.

    SPOT 1:

    Klunk is sprinkling the contents of a box of Kellogg's Raisin Bran on a conveyor belt, walking along as he does so. Muttley follows him.

    Klunk: Yankee Doodle Pigeon will follow the sugar-coated raisins and sweet bran flakes of Kellogg's Raisin Bran (stops in front of a modified haybaler) right into my trap!

    Muttley: (motioning as if snickering) Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah!

    Dastardly spots the raisin bran on the conveyor belt and starts gobbling them up. During his plug, we see live-action footage of the cereal with close-ups of the raisins.

    Dastardly: Mmmm! Raisins! Sugar coated raisins! So plump! So juicy! So many! And sweet bran flakes, too!

    Dastardly laughs as he holds the box at the entrance of the haybaler. A mechanical boot kicks him in, the haybaler goes into action and Dastardly emerges at the other end bound in a bale of hay. Yankee Doodle Pigeon zooms in and snatches the box of cereal.

    Klunk: (shocked) It's the chief! (forlorn) And the pigeon took the Kellogg's Raisin Bran!

    Dastardly: This is...(blows a straw of hay off his nose) the last straw!

    Yankee Doodle Pigeon flies off, blowing his bugle and holding the box of Raisin Bran.

    SPOT 2:

    Dastardly and Klunk are airborne in a plane with a bowl of Rice Krispies beside them. A microphone wired to a speaker is aimed down at the cereal. Muttley and Zilly are in another rear-engine plane with cymbals protruding from the front. A medal is clearly visible on Klunk's uniform.

    Dastardly: Your promotion is riding on this, Klunk.

    Klunk: It's piegon-perfect, chief! (Live footage of the cereal) Yankee Doodle Pigeon will home in on the Snap-Crackle-Pop sound of Kellogg's Rice Krispies, and before he can get the first nutritious spoonful--BWING! POW AWP! (Yankee Doodle Pigeon lands next to the cereal; Dastardly looks ready to grab him)

    Muttley and Zilly circle back.

    Zilly: Look! It's--it's--

    Muttley: The pigeon!

    Dastardly: I'll get him!

    Before he can, Muttley and Zilly come in and crash the cymbals on both sides of Dastardly's head, carrying him out of the plane. The piegon swoops in and nabs the cereal.

    Klunk: There goes the Kellogg's Rice Krispies...

    The cymbals separate, causing Dastardly to drop out of the scene.

    Zilly: There goes the chief...

    Sadly, Klunk drops his medal towards the ground.

    Klunk: And there goes my promotion!

    SPOT 3:

    At Vulture Squadron headquarters, Muttley is lying on the floor, fast asleep. Dastardly, binoculars in hand, kicks Muttley in the rear and Klunk and Zilly watch.

    Dastardly: Muttley, get up! That pigeon is due any minute!

    Klunk pulls out a bowl and a box of Frosted Flakes.

    Klunk: I have it, chief...(live footage of the cereal) The secret toasting and sugar frosting of Kellogg's Sugar Frosted Flakes. It's for cats on the go!

    As Klunk holds the bowl of cereal to Muttley's nose, Muttley sniffs it and awakens.

    Zilly: But he's a dog!

    Dastardly: (pointing) Muttley...fetch!

    Muttley spins his tail like a propellor, takes off, and brings back a peculiar bird that in no way resembles Yankee Doodle Pigeon.

    Dastardly: That's not a pigeon!

    Muttley: Rassafrassin...

    Muttley takes off again and again, each time bringing back flocks of birds, none of which are pigeons, especially not Yankee Doodle.

    Dastardly: (long suffering) Oh, boy...Klunk, those flakes have him going all right, but that dog has gone to the birds! (close-up of one of the birds) Which beholds us to mention...

    Bird: (holding up a package of Kellogg's Snack Pack) Awwwk! Sugar Frosted Flakes come in Snack Pack, too!
