Quisp.  You know, the cereal from the 1960s that had the little alien with a Jerry Lewis voice on the commercials? It was the greatest breakfast cereal known to man. I get hungry just thinking of it. Tonight we’re looking at some of the classic commercials by Bullwinkle and Rocky creator Jay Ward, as well as a more recent web commercial by my pal, John Kricfalusi (of Ren and Stimpy fame).

After the jump, watch as Quisp battles his rival, Quake, for breakfast cereal dominance. Quake goes through a few changes along the way.

    I love Quisp and have several collectors items. I also collect Freakies cereal collectibles.

    There was a cereal named after Quentin Crisp?

    I wonder if I could hire Quisp as a stunt knitter?
