A big arrival for the Crunchberry Beast or (“C.B.” as his friends call him).  I always loved the character (Quaker’s Crunchberries cereal) but knew from the get-go that he would be a tool of Chocula’s plot.  He’s an innocent yet feral beast and he was destined to go down violently.  The trick in drawing him for the book was to take his cartoonily rounded body and figure out what an emaciated, crazed version of that would be.  Is it wrong to say that it was kind of fun to do?

Off-Topic But Amusing Sidenote: Crunchberries are, apparently, not real fruit.  For those of you stunned to discover this, allow me to direct you to check out this news item.
