krispies kids

Rice Krispies Kids

Kellogg's Krispies (Great Britain)
The Rice Krispies Kids as they appeared in 1997. They were the British version of Snap, Crackle and Pop. The superhero image was maintained until sometime in 1997 or 1998, when they reverted to the American depiction. The superhero line allowed them to indulge in all sorts of activities such when they saved a ship carrying Rice Krispies from certain doom by diverting a menacing iceberg.

"Who were those guys?"
"I don't know, but they saved our Rice Krispies."

The punchline to all of these superhero Snap, Crackle and Pop ads was the grateful Rice Krispies consumer shouting "Thank you, whoever you are!"

Shoog the Eskimo Dog

Kellogg's Ricicles (UK)
Sugar Frosties (AUS)
Shoog the Eskimo Dog advertised Ricicles in the UK. The ad suggests a kind of dream logic associating rice with icicles and then, by extension, something also cold - Eskimos! The catch phrase was "Ricicles are nicicles"!

Also seen in Australia in 1969 to 1971 for Sugar Frosties. TV Ad: Jingle "Here comes Shoog the Eskimo Dog back from the trading store..." (a cartoon Eskimo dog carrying the box of breakfast cereal back from the trading store). "What you got Shoog" What you bring back?" Here the character shows a rectangular pillow like sugar covered brekky cereal.
