Kelpo is a brand of cereal that appears throughout many episodes of SpongeBob SquarePants, beginning with "Karate Choppers."

Description

It is packaged in a small, light yellow box that depicts an image of a piece of kelp with a face, named Kelpy. The cereal's name is written at the top in dark blue, capitalized text, and also reads "with one of 8 essential prizes inside!" on an orange burst effect.

Role in series

Kelpo appears quite frequently throughout the series and is a highly recognizable brand of cereal sold in Bikini Bottom.
