One of my very first records as a kid was this super cool, 5 song, 33 1/3rd, full fidelity, cardboard Sugar Bears record that you cut right off the back of a Post Super Sugar Crisp cereal box. Sugar Bear was certainly the smoothest and funniest of all cereal mascots back in the day (though Sugar Crisp wasn't exactly was favorite cereal), and his mellow Dean Martin meets Bing Crosby sing song voice and laid back attitude was always hysterical against nemeses like Granny Good Witch or The Blob, (take a look at these amazing, vintage, animated commercials HERE and HERE for examples!) None of the old time crooner personality vibe is to be found on this collection of fun and very catchy bubble gum pop songs though-- in fact, these tunes actually sound more like The Archies or Cattanooga Cats! And yay-- someone was nice enough to post some of the songs on youtube so I didn't have to!
