quisp and quake cereals had a contest-whichever kind sold the most boxes in a period of time would be the champion and the other would be taken off the market. quisp won. i loved them both-it was worse than your parents getting divorced-at least you still got to see your dad.i never saw quake again- if only i had eaten more quake or spent more time with it-maybe it was my fault! please come back quake-i promise ill be a good kid! i love you- please write.

There was a battle between cereals back in the 70's, but Quisp didn't win, and I don't believe the battle was with Quake. This is why Quisp was taken off the market for many years, then only re-surfaced about 3 or 4 years ago. I loved it as a kid, but guess the taste buds have changed. I purchased Quisp online, and it was rather sweet.

Quake was the best! He was my cereal hero, those were the days my friend...

Yep, Quisp was my fave while my brothers liked the Quake. I guess it was more macho to go with Quake. But I always wished for propellers to sprout from my head.

The battle was indeed between Quisp and Quake. After Quake lost, the company discontinued the cereal. It briefly revived Quake -- with a new kangaroo mascot -- shortly after with Orange Quangaroos, which flopped.

I was rooting for Quisp--who needed Quake when we had Cap'n Crunch?

I remember that Quake transformed from a miner to a cowboy. No wonder he lost.

A Saturday morning retrospect on QUISP and QUAKE: September 25, 1965...These guys, along with Cap'n Crunch, were advertised on the very first Beatles cartoon show on ABC. I also have an ad in which QUAKE visits a travel agent, and is sent to QUISP's planet, from March 25, 1967 on the Mighty Heroes/Mighty Mouse show on CBS. Strange thing about those cereals: They all tasted the same.

From the Saturday morning cartoon vault, a rare TV commercial in which Quisp, Quake (in cowboy-superhero outfit) and Cap'n Crunch (and crew) appear together, offering free Matchbox toy vehicles. One Matchbox was 60 cents back then. To get a "free" one, you had to send in three proof-of-purchase stamps from Life cereal or the others mentioned, making you spend $1.20 or more on cereal. This aired on a "Flintstones" rerun over NBC (10/11/69). Also, an early Quisp-Quake (as miner) commercial taking place amidst a football game. Both are on the same team, but compete to carry the ball and score the winning touchdown. This aired on "King Kong" over ABC (10/15/66).

From the Saturday morning cartoon vault, two more great TV spots with our favorite cereal pair from Quaker. First, a mini-comic book titled, "Tale of Glutton" inside boxes. Quisp knocks Quake's obesity in the 12-page comic. This aired on the "Beatles" cartoon show over ABC (11/13/65). Second ad has the Quake (as cowboy-superhero) mini movie viewer (cheap, plastic magnifier, plus small comic strips) inside boxes, along with offer for the Quisp Cosmic Clouder toy space gun (white powder used). This aired on "George of the Jungle" over ABC (1/25/69). 50c and two proof seals got you the gun. Text on cereal box stated that kids should use gun to "make enemies into friends with Cosmic Cloud's power." Today, that toy gun is worth $100 or more, if instruction sheet and original powder are with it.
