Buzzbee (Honey Nut Cheerios) Vs. Colonel Sanders (Kentucky Fried Chicken)


[yt=425,350]ARAVU30iYcQ[/yt]

Their mascot is an anthropomorphic bee designed for the first commercials by Dean Yeagle at Zander's Animation Parlour in NYC. Originally he was nameless, but in 2000, a contest was held to name him. A 10 year old boy from Canada named Jacob Williams gave him the name Buzzbee, later shortened to just Buzz. Buzz was originally voiced by Arnold Stang. He's currently voiced by Billy West (of Futurama fame).

At the age of 40, Sanders cooked chicken dishes for people who stopped at his service station in Corbin, Kentucky. Since he did not have a restaurant, he served customers in his living quarters in the service station. Eventually, his local popularity grew, and Sanders moved to a motel and restaurant that seated 142 people and worked as the chef. Over the next nine years, he perfected his method of cooking chicken. Furthermore, he made use of a pressure fryer that allowed the chicken to be cooked much faster than by pan-frying. He was given the honorary title "Kentucky Colonel" in 1935 by Governor Ruby Laffoon. Sanders chose to call himself "Colonel" and to dress in a stereotypical "southern gentleman" costume as a way of self-promotion. Sanders sold his franchise in 1964, although he remained their corporate spokesman until his death.

The combination of facing off against the Hulkster and for gaining the voice of Billy West gives my vote to Buzz.
