My Food Network “Unwrapped” Appearance Re-Airing Tonight.


It's late notice, but I just found out that the "Berry Treats" episode on the Food Network's "Unwrapped" show is going to be re-airing tonight. If you get the Food Network, be sure to tune in because I appeared on that episode about 4 years ago to talk about Boo Berry. It'll be on tonight (June 10th) at 11:30pm and (June 11th) at 2:30am. If you're watching it, the segment I'm in is towards the end of the episode. Check-a-check-a-check it out yo!

More site updates coming soon...

update: I-Mockery reader Terrible-D was nice enough to record it and upload it to Youtube for those of you who weren't able to catch the showing. Hit the jump to watch it.

It's on too late for me-(who watches TV at 2:30 in the morning anyway?)Maybe somebody can put it on Youtube.

Before taking a look at the article I wondered if you just decided to slash that hard-earned long mane of yours.

I'm afraid I don't have that channel available to watch the cereal glory, but I hope that some bum out there can upload it to YouTube, just like captain516 said.

Something to watch for on my overnight shift. Sometimes working at a tv station has it's perks.

Yeah sorry Captain516, it's definitely late notice for anybody not on the West Coast. I wouldn't expect anybody to stay up 'til 2:30am to watch it. I'm probably one of the only people here who is usually up 'til about 4am. For those of you who are able to catch the 11:30 or 2:30 airings, you'll not only see me, but you'll see good ol' Marc Summers... the host of Double Dare (one of my favorite childhood game shows filled with sliiiiime!)

But yeah, if anybody wants to record it and put it up on Youtube, that'd be spiffy.

Silver, heheh it's not that hard-earned... I still chop it off every now 'n then. But yeah, that's an old photo from about six or seven years ago.

Terrible-D, where do ya work?


David Johnson (Guest) on 06/11/2008 1:27 am

I was on Unwrapped...or at least my butt was. I was working for a radio station in Sterling, CO, and they did a episode about our Chex Mix days. Near the end of the segment, as the people are walking off in the distance, there I am...or at least my butt was. I'm glad we "share" something, even though yours is way better than mine. Ah yeah, my episode is called "cocktail."
Episode CW1B09.

11:30am? you sure? thats not night time

Terrible-D on 06/11/2008 2:20 am

I work for the ABC affiliate in Minneapolis. Now if I can figure out how to get video from Beta to the internet, I can post it for anyone who wasn't able to watch (I'll talk to our website manager when he gets in at 6a.m. central).
I wonder if General Mills gives tours? They're not to far away from here (Golden Valley, I think), and maybe they'd do something special for the worlds biggest Boo-Berry fan.

-RoG- on 06/11/2008 3:20 am

David Johnson, whenever I see Chex Mix, I will immediately think of your butt.

greenimp, hehe I'm still considering doing them at some point. In the meantime, I've got some new I-Mockery shirts being shipped here soon.

hurr, yeah it's 11:30pm and 2:30am heheh.

Terrible-D, ah that's nice of you man. Thanks for looking into that for the other people who couldn't see it! Drop me an email if you're able to get the video on the web.

Terrible-D on 06/11/2008 7:55 am

Here it is, for those of you who missed out.

fiercealmond on 06/11/2008 8:34 am

It seems a little different than the original airing. Hm.

User avatar

-RoG- on 06/11/2008 11:55 am

Terrible-D, awesome man, thanks so much for recording and uploading that for everyone. Much appreciated.

fiercealmond, seems the same to me. You sure you're not confusing it with my appearance on that old VH1 "Totally Obsessed" show? That one had a far more lighthearted feel to it.

One day, when I was younger, my brother freaked out and ran into the living room; explaining that his poo was green. My mother and I investigated, and sure enough, it was a bright fluorescent green. We were boggled over why. It didn't happen again, so no Dr.'s visit. A few days later, when I ate some of my brother's Boo Berry, my poo was green too and the mystery was solved.

BYW - Black licorice Twizzlers has the same effect. I actually found that out a few months ago.

Check out my Godzilla blog, if you folks haven't already. I'm on day 12 of a 29 day-Godzilla movie-a-day-a-thon and it's driving me bat-shit crazy:

Colewolf on 06/11/2008 1:11 pm

I have seen that before I think. Wasn't there another one of you hiding other cereals in a store and putting Boo berry in its place?

User avatar

-RoG- on 06/11/2008 1:50 pm

BakaGaijin, heh, yeah that's happens to everybody who eats it. It was supposedly much worse in the 80s though, but I think that's because they might've changed some of the ingredients since then.

Colewolf, yeah that was the VH1 "Totally Obsessed" episode which I got to have a lot more fun with. I have a copy of it on VHS, I just need to find a way to get it onto the web sometime (I'm currently VCR-less)

User avatar

Colewolf on 06/11/2008 2:39 pm

I seen those before I knew this site even existed. I did not put two and two together until your little blurb.

User avatar

King Credo on 06/11/2008 3:30 pm

Wow. I thought you'd be on for like 2 seconds just saying that you like Boo Berry. I didn't expect two minutes of Rogtastic glory (if you ever make a movie about yourself please call it Rogtastic Glory). And Boo Berry sounds different then I thought he would. I thought he had a deep voice and a southern accent.

User avatar

Silver on 06/11/2008 3:41 pm

I want to thank Terrible-D for his cool upload. You definitely made things easier for everyone around.

I guess that Boo Berry is not the only one responsible for multi-coloring one's own bodily waste. Protoclow had the same symptoms for a week after eating at McDonald's.

Metal Misfit on 06/11/2008 3:52 pm

Awesome, Rog! I never knew this episode existed or that you were a TV personality! =) Unwrapped is one of my favorite shows.

User avatar

captain516 on 06/11/2008 5:43 pm

Thanks Terrible-D!


Misty (Guest) on 06/11/2008 5:55 pm

Thanks for letting me know when its already too late! =

User avatar

JJ the Jetplane on 06/11/2008 6:22 pm

So, wehy was I not alerted at an earlier time that you were on TV in any way shape or form, Rog?
I always thought I'd be one of the first to I'm sad. :-(

User avatar

-RoG- on 06/11/2008 6:32 pm

Metal Misfit, yeah it's a pretty cool lil' show, but if I had my choice of shows to appear on, I think I'd go with Deadliest Catch. Mmmm... crab fishing.

Misty & JJ, see above. Terrible-D was nice enough to record the show and put it on Youtube for everybody who didn't catch it on TV.

Dungeonbrownies on 06/11/2008 6:53 pm

woahaha, dont you feel celebrity?
just for helping them bring it back into style,
they should practically be sending it to you for free.


Ryan A. Guest (Guest) on 06/11/2008 8:00 pm

Hey Rog I've also seen you talk about Boo Berry on a show on VH1 called Totally Obsessed.

You were dedicated, but not like that women who owned the heads from TMNT 3.


Alan (Guest) on 06/11/2008 8:35 pm

Wow. I saw that episode a long time ago. I would never connect that with i-mockery. Awesome.

User avatar

Troubleshoot on 06/11/2008 10:51 pm

Wow, roughly two minutes of Rog. Almost didn't recognize you without the pickle hat.

Did the people on the food network just stumble across your website, and go "wow, this guy REALLY likes cereal, lets interview him"? Also, how did you find out that particular episode was going to be on?

User avatar

greenimp on 06/12/2008 2:30 am

cheers terrible-d, good job getting that too the rest of us

and IT TURNS YOUR POO FLURO GREEN? i must find this insane treat...

User avatar

Terrible-D on 06/12/2008 3:16 am

Glad I could help. And please continue to pour on the adulation. Also, gifts in the form of cash are always appreciated. Perhaps I could get some friends together and we could stage a protest outside of GM hq, requesting they start producing more Boo Berry.

thatguy on 06/12/2008 6:39 am

I didn't Know this but -RoG was also on The Daily Show I tried to upload the video on Youtube, but it apparently violates the TOS.


Tom the Bomb (Guest) on 06/12/2008 10:10 am

I actually hate boo berry

User avatar

BurnPianoBurn on 06/12/2008 10:32 am

The funny thing is, I saw this 4 years back before I knew of I-mockery. The first thing I thought was, god, this Roger guy is a boo berry stalker. However, I did agree with his understanding for delicious blue flavored food products.

Rog is my hero. Did you super kick mark summers? I would have and told him to bring Double Dare back...


Yotan (Guest) on 06/12/2008 12:14 pm

Rog, what did your email that you were typing say? I was able to see "To whom it may concern: let me introduce myself.... oh wait i don't have to because i've emailed you countless times...

User avatar

-RoG- on 06/12/2008 1:02 pm

Ryan A., yeah the Totally Obsessed episode was a while back. I'll get it uploaded onto the web at some point because I definitely had more fun with that one (ie: playing guitar, hiding boxes of count chocula, etc.). It had a far less serious tone. But yeah, there were people on that show who take their obsessiveness to incredible extremes. You'll never find me spending 5 grand on cereal memorabilia or anything heheh...

Troubleshoot, apparently somebody who worked there was a regular visitor of the site and told them they should talk to me about Boo Berry. Pretty cool of 'em!

thatguy, yeah they don't allow their videos to be uploaded there. I have the full episode along with the intro uploaded on the Unofficial Boo Berry site though.

Tom the Bomb, my condolences to you and your taste buds.

BurnPianoBurn, just doing my part to keep the greatest cereal ever still on store shelves. As for Marc Summers, he wasn't there for the recording, he just films the little intros for the show. They send field teams out on location to take care of the actual coverage. But yeah, Double Dare needs to come back. I miss all the slime.

Yotan, huh? I have no idea what you're talking about. You'll have to send an email and forward me whatever you're talking about.

User avatar

Invisible on 06/12/2008 2:26 pm

I've never had that cereal. It's never been available where I live. It's sad. :(


Huggbees (Guest) on 06/12/2008 4:15 pm

Dude just...a big hell yeah too ya. You're getting famous -RoG-!

User avatar

rimmie on 06/12/2008 5:27 pm

*applaudes Rog* Very nice!!!! I am very lucky to have Boo Berry on the shelf at the stores around my home.


Keith (Guest) on 06/12/2008 5:37 pm

Milk and cereal rocks!

User avatar

Troubleshoot on 06/12/2008 11:13 pm

That video did make me realize that Boo Berry isn't readily accessible in most stores. The store close to my place only had one box, and it was hidden behind roughly 7 boxes. Twas worth the effort. Now I can understand your love for the stuff.


Jackpot (Guest) on 06/13/2008 11:10 am

I miss McClain.

What is he doing these days?

RandiLu on 06/15/2008 2:49 am

I love Unwrapped. Anything with Mark Summers is A+. Definately need to see that VH1 clip of you. In the unwrapped you seem so... scripted.

User avatar

fiercealmond on 06/15/2008 9:09 am

Yes, Rog, I was thinking of the VH1 thing, although I don't remember watching that.


MorbidCam (Guest) on 06/15/2008 12:13 pm

Damn, is that a few bottles of faygo on that guys table at the end of the video... oh wait dammnit going off topic, great video Rog, hope to see you getting put on tv some more.

User avatar

Count Mek on 06/15/2008 2:44 pm

He tried to make you epic and pathetic at the same time! Hard to do D:
Well done on being on TV though =D


T L Wolf (Guest) on 06/16/2008 5:36 pm

Well, I'm sure I've said it in the past, but thank you again for pointing out this amazingly wonderful cereal. The rare times that I have cereal, I usually make sure to make it to the local Super Wal-Mart for a couple boxes.


woundedgoose (Guest) on 06/20/2008 2:56 am

I see everyone talking about boo berrys.... But i see noone talking about the boo berry's...the greatest monster cereal based band ever!


yelinna (Guest) on 11/01/2008 1:05 am

A crazy fan of Boo Berry!! You're awesome, Rog!! :D
