#DIDYOUKNOW that a young lady from Coolidge named the Honey Nut Cereal Mascot? Their mascot is an anthropomorphic bee, designed for the first commercials by Dean Yeagle at Zander’s Animation Parlour in New York City. The bee did not have a name until 2000, when Kristine Tong, a fifth grade student from Coolidge, Texas, won a national contest to name the bee, dubbing him “BuzzBee”. Buzz also appeared as the host in the Honey Nut Cheerios Spelling Bee game, which was named after the breakfast cereal. Buzz has also gone through several different voice actors in his career. He was originally voiced by Arnold Stang until 1990. He was then voiced by Billy West, Charlie Schlatter, Jason Marsden and currently Oliver Wyman.So, thanks to Kristine Tong from Coolidge, Buzz the Bee is the Honey Nut Cheerios Mascot. In 2017, Buzz the Bee was missing, in order to draw attention to the dwindling bee population.
