Quisp and Quake, the great commercial stars of 1960's and 1970's Saturday Morning Television.
Created by the Jay Ward Studios (creators of some of the BEST animated series for TV, Rocky and Bullwinkle and George of the Jungle) for Quaker Oats, Bill Scott and his writing staff came up with the concept of an pink colored alien versus a caped construction worker that challenged the kids watching their commercials that their cereal was the best. This gave Quaker Oats the opportunity to introduce two new cereals to the public and then get the kids watching the chance to pick which one they liked best.
The best part of these ads is they had the great humor and puns that made the Jay Ward shows so funny, and also so memorable. Along with Capn' Crunch, Quisp and Quake were the best commercials that interrupted our favorite Saturday Morning Shows.
So who was your favorite - Quisp or Quake?
