  • Lmbo this theory *LITERALLY* took Count Chocula out of the cereal business and into the treat snack bar business within a week!!!! 😂🤣 why @MatPat why?? Lol I thought They named he that because I was a play on both monikers of Dracula + Chocolate so it made sense his name would be *Chocula*

  • Okay, so Count Chocula himself is not the product of inbreeding, his ancestors at some point are. Chocula himself is cool.

  • At no point does he make his main point. No dots connect to him being inbred. Just that his chin is an inheritable genetic trait... As all are. He even makes the point that a random normal person could have that chin who is not inbred.
