I remember howling with laughter when I saw this commercial for the otherwise nondescript animal-shaped Crispy Critters cereal in the mid-’80s, because my friends and I called what you probably call “klingons near Uranus” “crispy critters.” As the ad boasts, it was indeed “low sugar,” and it tasted awful, although not as bad as what I had come to know as “crispy critters.” The main animal in the commercial does a Jimmy Durante impression, and you compound that with the low sugar thing, and it’s clear they were marketing this cereal to bewildered grandparents who needed to buy a cereal for when the little ones were coming to visit.
