You have Quisp on the site but have you forgotten his side-kick cereal Quake (The chizled guy in the hard hat)? Quisp (odd looking space guy with a propeler on his head) & Quake should be said together

I Remaber Quake was the good guy & Quisp was the bad guy when the cerael first came out.

I believe at the time (early 1970s) they had some kind of contest and Quisp won over Quake. Thus, Quisp continued and Quake was dropped from the market.

Actually,Quake won the contest and to celebrate they came out with a special Quake cereal that had orange rings.

From the Saturday morning cartoon vault, a TV spot which has miner Quake rescuing his mother from a mechanical, crocodile-like monster with an amphibious chassis. This aired on "Mighty Heroes" over CBS (11/12/66). Only two guys did all the voice work. Lionel Wilson, a TerryToon regular (Strong Man, Cuckoo Man, Rope Man), and Herschel Bernardi (Tornado Man, Diaper Man), who voiced Charlie the Starkist Tuna (1962 until death, 1986)as well as his own series, "Arnie," and a regular on "Peter Gunn."

From the Saturday morning cartoon vault, a transitional TV spot. Miner Quake gets a distress call from an airplane that's about to hit a mountain. He jumps into his "new and improver: machine, becomes cowboy-superhero, then flies to level off the mountain, allowing the plane to pass safely. Inside boxes, a Quakemoble toy with launching catapult (is shaped like a mole). This aired on "Fantastic Voyage" over ABC (12/28/68).

From the Saturday morning cartoon vault, the third TV spot featuring Quake (as a miner). Quisp warns Quake of a dam giving way, and flooding imminent. Quake literally uses his head in breaking up a granite cliff to build a new dam, saving the day, ruining his safety helmet in the process. This aired on "Hector Heathcote" show over NBC (9/11/65). On the show, by Terry Toons, Heathcote was a colonial figure who turned up in varied eras of history, usually an inventor. Other cartoon elements were "Hashimoto San" (Japanese mice, somewhat offensive) and "Silly Sidney," a paranoid elephant in a jungle. Two weeks later, NBC replaced it with "Fireball XL5," a British marionette space adventure series from ITC.

From the Saturday morning cartoon vault, a commercial with Quake rescuing his mother from bank robbers who take her hostage (no help from Quisp). This aired on "Cool McCool" over NBC (9/24/66). On the show, McCool and Dr. Madcap (both, Bob McFadden) clash. Madcap mimics Boris Karloff, has green skin, tons of hats, and Greta Ghoul (Carol Corbett). Harry McCool filler, and Cool faces Rattler (Chuck McCann) in the finale. Nabisco, Kenner and Milton Bradley other sponsors.

In 1970, Quake Cereal had a mail-in premium with an educational twist. The offer was of Quake's Rock Collection, with materials provided by Scott Scientific. Inside a blue box (Quake pictured as cowboy-superhero) were sample specimens of odd rocks, instructions and a sheet where kids had to glue the rocks (mucilage glue worked best) to the corresponding picture. Cost was a dollar and two box tops (Quake or Quisp). This taught Geology, rock identification. eBay has an unused set for $125.
