GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn.--   You may remember spending your Saturday mornings as a kid munching on 'Count Chocula', 'Franken Berry', or 'Boo Berry' cereals.  The monsters are reuniting this fall with two classic favorites that haven't been seen in more than two decades: 'Frute Brute' and 'Yummy Mummy'.

Our Diana Pierce recently got a chance to learn more about this retro revival.
