Quisp VS Quangaroos Commercial (1976)

In 1976 after having already defeated Quake cereal four years earlier resulting in having the “rival” cereal yanked from store shelves by fan vote and it’s mascot demoted to sidekick status for another cereal…Quisp the Alien decided to set his sights on Simon, the mascot for the orange-flavored cereal Quangaroos!

The cartoon ads for these fan vote confrontations were handled by the legendary Jay Ward Studios, famous for the Rocky and Bullwinkle television series, and the commercials are certainly filled with the same type of brilliant humor.

So which Cereal won? Watch and find out!
