I Love TV Commercials – Part 3 *Grins & Smiles & Giggles & Laughs Cereal*

Wow, does anyone else remember this cereal from 1975? I have been searching for anything on this cereal forever and finally found some info on it! I remember the big smiles on the cereal and the yummy taste that reminded me of Cap’n Crunch, which I loved as well. I still have one of the little toy prizes that came with this cereal, it is a walking robot figure.

“Cecil was the machine that made the “Grins and Smiles and Giggles and Laughs Cereal”. Grins was the guy in the brown suit, Smiles in the green suit, Giggles was the lady with the clipboard and Laughs was the guy in the blue suit with glasses. They all told jokes in an attempt to make Cecil laugh so he would spit out boxes of the cereal. “It takes funny people to make funny cereal.” “But if Cecil’s funny bone hasn’t been tickled, then you’re reading the back of an empty box…”

The original commercial went like this…

Cecil:
“If something makes me laugh, I make my cereal, Grins & Smiles & Giggles & Laughs – part of a nutritious breakfast. These bozos are gonna try to get me to laugh up some Grins & Smiles & Giggles & Laughs – the deliciously sweet crunchy corny cereal that smiles back at you.”

The balancing act falls down and crashes through the floor. Cecil laughs and laughs and begins to spit boxes of cereal out his mouth.

Cecil:
“Give that disappearing act some Grins & Smiles & Giggles & Laughs – the crunchy cereal that smiles back at you.”

As the tagline says: “It takes funny people to make funny cereal.” These characters were designed by Stan Mack. Dean Yeagle did the animation.

I hope you enjoyed my little blog on this cheery cereal that always makes you smile!
