Two cereals in the Quisp family. Quake tasted the same as Quisp, but Quangaroos had an orange flavor.

I ate all of Cap'N Crunch's flavors of cereal then, but his was, hands down, my FAVORITE cereal!!! I used to make a HEAPING bowl of it, and then watch the Sunday morning cartoon lineup consisting of Hoppity Hooper, Bullwinkle, Underdog, Tennesee Tuxedo, Samson & Goliath, and finally, Johnny Quest... after witch, our father would take over the TV set, since we only had ONE at that time! (LOL)

Found two great TV commercials for Quake and Quangaroos. First, THE commercial in which Quake uses a machine to evolve from miner to cowboy-superhero. Inside boxes, a Quakemobile toy with catapult launcher. This aired on "George of the Jungle" cartoon show (10/5/68, ABC). Second, one where Simon the Quangaroo nearly bungles Quake's pursuit of a cereal thief. Included, a mail-in offer to get a free Matchbox car with two proof-of-purchase seals. This aired on the "Tomfoolery" cartoon show (9/26/70, NBC). Incidentally, Jay Ward Productions filmed all the Quaker cartoon commercials, with co-producer Bill Scott voicing several characters, along with Daws Butler and Bill Conrad (Quake).

From the Saturday morning cartoon vault: TV commercial with two thugs kidnapping Quisp with intent to force him to tell them the secret formula in making the cereal. While Quake balks at having to help Quisp, Simon the Quangaroo tells him it's his duty, for sake of the kids watching. This aired on "Here Comes the Grump" over NBC (3/25/70).

From the Saturday morning cartoon vault, a Quangaroos TV spot with two zoo poachers caging Simon for a freak animal display. Rivals Quisp and (cowboy-superhero) Quake must team up to save him. Quisp uses invisibility, Quake uses tornado power to defeat the bad guys. This aired on the "Real Jerry Lewis Sit down" show over ABC (10/17/70). Cartoon show has the "real" Jerry Lewis encountering his movie-role alter-egos like Nutty Professor. David Lander of "Laverne & Shirley" voiced Lewis. Filmation regulars Howard Morris, John Erwin and Jane Webb voiced other characters. For those wondering, Bill Scott (Bullwinkle) voiced Simon the Quangaroo, not an actual Australian.

From the Saturday morning cartoon vault, inside boxes were gyro-powered (like SSP's) motorbike (Trailblazer) toys of orange Simon, Quisp and Quake (cowboy-superhero). This aired on "Runaround" over NBC (12/30/72). "Runaround" was a kiddie quiz show hosted by Paul Winchell and dummy, Jerry Mahoney. Primarily, questions were multiple choice or true-false. Prizes were like bicycles, phonographs and sports-related toys. Cash earned was given in U.S. savings bonds.

From the Saturday morning cartoon vault, Quisp, Quake and Simon visit the mystical town of Orangeania. A resident tells them a special reason why the town was named that. QUANGAROOS the favorite cereal. Commercial aired on "Roman Holidays" over NBC (9/16/72). Like the "Flintstones" in concept, "Roman Holidays" was set in Caesar's time. Gus Holiday's family starred. Blusterous Evictus (Dom De Luise) the landlord. Gus's son, Happius (in high school), had a girlfriend, Groovia. Daughter, Precocia, was smarter than others preferred. Many 1970s conveniences and cultural references blended into the 16-episode series by Hanna-Barbera. Barry Livingston of "My Three Sons" voiced Happy. The Holiday family had a lazy, domesticated lion named Brutus. Episode featured was parody of David Cassidy (Cassius), whom Happy was an exact double, minus a wig.
