As I remember, it was another one of those sugared-up cereals with a unique orange flavor. i believe that it's novelty was short-lived, like so many other cereals of that era

All I remember is they were from the same makers of Qwisp and Quake.

Quaker Oats Orange Quangaroos tasted better than expected. The cereal was aaround less than two years; from early 1970 to mid 1971. The (Jay Ward produced) TV commercials depicted Quake, evolved from coal miner to cowboy-superhero, teaming up with Quangaroo to continue his rivalry with Quisp, as well as foil crimes involving theft. I have one of the ads, from an episode of "The Bugaloos (9/26/70, NBC)." After Quangaroo disappeared, so did Quake.

I remember sorta liking this cereal, but to me, the taste reminded me of St. Joseph's baby asprin.

A friend and I spent a summer going to a convenience store to buy rolling papers and then hang out in a park or a vacant lot. Then we would return to the store to get soda and candy. We would take 45 minutes to visit the breakfast cereal section and laugh at the brightly colored boxes. Our favorite was Orange Quangaroos. We named it the Quangaroo Summer. We also liked to laugh in the pet food section and the pet care products, but Orange Quangaroos were our absolute favorite.

their selling point was they had more vitamin c than other cereals. The cartoon kangaroo (Simon) didn't have a very convincing Aussie accent but I liked the cereal.

Chinese Ark is right. That was no Aussie voice in the animated commercials. Simon was voiced by Bill Scott, the voice of Bullwinkle and other characters. Another famous voice man, William Conrad, did Quake.
