    I just recently bought a box of count chocula and I noticed something off about his character design. So I cane back to this video and I realized that he doesn’t have prognathism. They shorten his chin and took away the cleft in his chin. When I saw this I realized that his is indeed true and General Mills is trying to hide the truth
