Snap, Crackle & Pop
Oh, snap! Unquestionably gay in the traditional sense of the word, the toasted-rice-mascot trio was borne out of a waaaay fey radio ad from the 1930s: “Listen to the fairy song of health, the merry chorus sung by Kellogg’s Rice Krispies as they merrily snap, crackle and pop in a bowl of milk.” That’s two
Marys merrys and a fairy in a single sentence.
Even more suspiciously, in Denmark the characters are called Pif, Paf and—wait for it—Puf.
