Excellent observation, Ashphalt. I had forgotten that the aforementioned indiginous (sp) people spoke pidgin English/Mad Ave's idea of Hawaiian, just to add insult to injury.

        I DO! I DO! I'd forgotten about Jets until you mentioned them-- Thanks! I remember liking them a lot. I only remember them in the round, Kix shape. I feel like they tasted pretty much like Kix, but had a sugar coating, and more of a caramel-flavor than straight sugar taste. (I think my family made our Dentist a wealthy man... )

            Is French Toast Crunch still around? That was a good cereal.

                My favorite cereal was POST RICE KRINKLES. They stopped makeing them becasue of the so called sugar content in them. But, hopefully I will get them back if not in this world the next.

                  My vote goes for Quisp! Remember the little martian commercial?
                  LOL Grillmeister! I had that cut oiut single from the archies! That was great. It would probably be worth some money now. I am sure there are some cereal collectors, or old record collectors who would bid on that one.

                    Quisp is still around in some places (and available online), not so his nemesis Quake. I remember the great Jay Ward commercials where they fought over whose cereal was better - I recall they were shaped differently but tasted the same. Quake disappeared soon after a makeover that changed him from a hulking miner to a thinner guy with an Aussie bush hat and a little cape. I still can't figure that out...

                      I handn't seen Quisp in DECADES...but suddenly I walked into a local store that carries stuff they pick up from liquidations and so forth, and lo and behold, there was a SHELF full of Quisp! Just as I remembered too- Capn Crunch as little saucers that dont destroy your soft palate! I picked up like six boxes!!! Someone else mustve found out too - its now all gone!

                        I loved Clackers, which had the flavor of graham crackers.

                        I detested Banana Wackies.

                              Better late than never! Used to love this stuff as a kid...



                              Take a look at this web site for a trip down cereal memory lane.

                                My kids loved Team Flakes! It's too bad they don't make them anymore.


                                A friend of mine once laughed at me because the only sugary cereal I'd buy for my kids was Alphabits. She asked why I bought those and I told her because the kids could spell with them. She just laughed and said, 'you're the only person I'd know who'd buy a cereal because it was educational!'

                                My kids were allowed sugary cereal when they went to their grandparents (as if I could have stopped that happening!) and on vacation. They weren't deprived!

                                  You seemed a bit confused about the term getting trolled...

                                  Trolling is a concept usually involving attempting to get some entity to do something that is not in its own best interest. Perhaps stemming from mythical encounters with unseemly characters known as Trolls in the habit of enticing passersby to, for instance, cross a bridge, at their presumed peril, under the alleged control or spell (curse) of a Troll.

                                  An Internet troll makes comments intended to induce an angry response.

                                  I don't think the term really applies here...

                                        Getting back on topic,
                                        QUISP was a re-use of a Jay Ward character who appeared with a moustached cohort in a BULLWINKLE cartoon. The only alteration was the propeller antenna atop his head.
                                        I don't tremember the plot but I do recall their raygun was called a SQUOOSH GUN. Half a decade later, Quisp was still holdong onto his fearsome Squoosh Gun.

                                        It would be interesting to categorize cereals by their recipes. For example, Captain Crunch, Quisp, Quake, and Addams Family were all the same batter in different shapes.

                                          QUISP was a re-use of a Jay Ward character who appeared with a moustached cohort in a BULLWINKLE cartoon. The only alteration was the propeller antenna atop his head.
                                          I don't tremember the plot but I do recall their raygun was called a SQUOOSH GUN. Half a decade later, Quisp was still holdong onto his fearsome Squoosh Gun.

                                          Yeah, he was either named Gidney or Cloyd, right? Interestingly he doesn't look too dissimilar to all those UFO witness descriptions.

                                            I remember a cereal called OJs. Kelloggs made this and they came out in 1985. Actually they came out around the same time when Kelloggs first started making those Rice Krispees Bars.

                                            OJs had an orange flavor and even made the milk taste like orange. I still remember the cartoon TV ads featuring "Orange Juice Jones".

                                            Ojs didn't last though, I think they were gone by the time I graduated from high school in 1986.

                                              Geez, Cathy, I remember OJ's! The few times I was able to get them, I just loved them.

                                              Speaking of orange flavor, my younger sisters used to pour their Tang on their cereal instead of milk. BLeah.

                                                Where did you find Quisp? When I lived in Michigan I could find it inthe summer months at farmer Jacks but no luck out here in Ca.

                                                    Oddly enough the other day a friend and I were talking about cereals and I mentioned my favorite growing up was Quisp. Well needless to say no one believed me that there was such a cereal called Quisp.. Ha.. now I have proof!! Thanks for the image.

                                                    Take a look at this web site for a trip down cereal memory lane.

                                                      I have no memory of that cereal, but I did find the pic on the web:

                                                        Does anybody remember Concentrate cereal made by Kellogg's? This was my favorite cereal in the 60's and 70's and then they stopped making it. It came in a very small box with gold foil on the outside and had a metal pouring spout on the side. It had sort of a wheat germ flavor but much better tasting. You didn't need to eat a lot of it to be satisfied. I contacted Kellogg's a couple of years ago but they told me that they had stopped making it. I really miss this wonderful cereal.

                                                          anyone remember Kellogs Banana Frosted Flakes?

                                                          I remember eating them, that awful, awful sugary sweet artificial banana flavor. Wow were they good.

                                                            I love that scene in Dumbo where Dumbo and Timothy got plastered and saw "pink elephants on parade". I wonder how much Walt spent on LSD for the staff who animated that scene.

I remember the great Jay Ward commercials where they fought over whose cereal was better - I recall they were shaped differently but tasted the same. Quake disappeared soon after a makeover that changed him from a hulking miner to a thinner guy with an Aussie bush hat and a little cape. I still can't figure that out...
                                                            Quake's cereal had orange kangaroos (that tasted like Tang on Cheerios) that sorta figured in the series of commercials. I loved the cross country race Quisp and Simon (the kangaroo character, maybe it was quangaroo) had, "From Long Island to Lompoc (neither of which I ever heard of at the time, but of course I made it a point to get to Lompoc, CA while in the Navy)", where Quake tried unsuccessfully to postpone the beginning to give them their maps. Stuff tasted pretty funky, even for a pre-teen I was in the sixties, but the commercials were better than other Saturday fare.

                                                            On the subject of brazen shilling, does anyone else remember the Post cartoon show that gave the world Sugar Bear, as well as Linus the Lion Hearted (of Crispy Critter fame), and the Postman who shilled Alpha Bits?

                                                            In an attempt to get the theme song of that show out of my sub concious, I'm posting the lyrics, at least as I remember them:

                                                            He's the host who is the most!

                                                            How about Sugar Bear's nemesis, the Blob, or Cap'n Crunch's Jean la Feet, the barefoot pirate (who made a not bad tasting twist on Cap'n Crunch when "he" added Cinnamon. I remember commercials of him trying to hog all his cereal from us kids, screaming, "It's MINE! MINE!" He would then smash into a live Ray Nitschke [betcha know where I live!], and then say, with obvious contrition, "but I'll SHARE.")

                                                            How about BOO-Berries, who would intervene in arguments with Franken-Berry and Count Chocula over who's cereal was better, often with a resounding "BOOO" and whispered "berries".
