Lucky Charms is a cereal from General Mills with marshmallows shaped like hearts, stars, horseshoes, clovers, moons, hourglasses, rainbows and red balloons. It first appeared in stores in 1964. The tag line is, 'They're magically delicious'.

Lucky the Leprechaun is an almost godlike being, akin to such myths as Achilles and Hercules. His immense wit and courage has saved him from being caught by those meddling kids trying to steal his hard earned Lucky Charms. The mascot, Lucky the Leprechaun, was replaced in England for less than a year by a mascot named Waldo the Wizard, a wizard who was rather foolish, but still a massive fan of the marshmellow cereal. Lucky has gone through multiple design changes, starting off as a very simplist

ic leprechaun who looked like a cross between a Peanuts character and a Hannah Barbera character, his appearance slowly rounded off and eventually changed into the Basic Lucky we know today. There was, however, a relatively recent commercial showed Lucky and the Marshmellows rapping, with an artstyle very similar to the Amazing World of Gumball and Adventure Time.
