Crispy's Crispy Critters cereal at least was better tasting than Ralston's flavored cold cereal from decades ago that (19th letter word).

I just remembered the name and the "Linus the Lionhearted" box. That's what prompted me to search up the cereal, to see if it was still available in some places. I remember having it when I was young, late 60's early 70's from what I remember it was pretty good, but I was more of a Coco Krispies kid.

I miss Crispy Critters. It was by far my favorite cereal. I am an old lady now. Sad.

I ate Crispy Critters when I was a teen, and again in the late 80's when it came back on the market. Loved it and still miss it. My brother had a Crispy Critters card game that played like 'Go Fish'. Wish I had that, too!

All I remember of this cereal were the commercials from 87-89ish. I was a teenager at the time, and while I 'got' that Crispy was supposed to be sounding like Jimmy Durante, I remember thinking even then that most of my friends, and even their PARENTS, wouldn't know who/remember who Jimmy Durante was. I wasn't surprised to see the commercials stop and the cereal disappear soon after.

Best cereal in the world. I weep with the memory of it knowing that Post will not bring it back.

This is still my favorite cereal. I crave it and I was just born in 1987. We used to eat this cereal all the time! Post, please bring this cereal back. I will buy it continuously! Please?!?

We occasionally ate this cereal for a few years back in the 60's when it was just the animals, then when they added the pink elephants. Don't recall orange moose at all. I do have a taste memory of the oaty flavor.

Bring it BACK! I saw all the cereals since the beginning of TV commercials... well, almost. Crispy Critters had the best commercial I've ever seen.

Original 1960s Crispy Critters ranks a close second to Rice Krinkles as the best cereal of all time in my book. "ROAR! ROAR! ROAR! with Linus the Lionhearted!" Kellogg's Concentrate is my #3.

I seem to remember eating and enjoying this cereal in the 1970s. It would be nice to see Crispy Critters on store shelves today.

I loved this cereal growing up. I was happy when it was brought back in the 80's. I would buy it today if it were brought back again.

I remember this cereal instantly turning into mush if you even thought about pouring milk on it. Not good.

I want Crispy Critters to come back. I have happy childhood memories - eating a bowl with my sister while we watched TV before school.

I didn't like this cereal in the 80's when I was a kid. The version from 60's looks like it would have been better.

Is it true that the reason Post Cereal discontinued the pink elephants and replaced them with orange mooses was the association of pink elephants with alcohol abuse?

I miss this cereal. It should come back. In 1987, I was four and obsessed with it. My mom just found my Crispy Critters Golden Book. LOL. It was my favorite book until it fell apart. I'm amazed she still has it :)

I miss this cereal. This was one of my favorites for breakfast when I was little. Call for orange moose has been stuck in my head all these years. It would be great if Post would bring the cereal back. I would certainly buy it.

OMG... that jingle where the Crispy Critter is playing the piano won't get out of my head. I never knew this cereal and now I'm never gonna forget it. Get out of my head catchy jingle!

Makes me think of the great Sheldon Leonard, Linus's voice. Post cereals were not as well-received as Kellogg's or Quaker but they hit big with Cocoa Pebbles even though Rice Krinkles didn't last. Critters were OK, though. I remember the two-headed llama figure. WOW.

My Family and most of my friends call me "Critter" I was born in 1987 when Crispy Critters was reintroduced. I was SO in love with this cereal that my family called me "Crispy Critter Christy" and now it's been shortened to Critter! I wish I could taste it again to know what I was SO obsessed with as a 1 year old!

That jingle from the 1987 critters commercials won't get out of my head now. Good thing I love it. Nice page. Good job.

I couldn't wait for my mom to get me crispy critters with pink elephants. The commercial was so upbeat. The cereal didn't taste as good as the jingle. Real real soon.

Oh yeah, that cereal that looked (and tasted like) cute little animal crackers but without any of the fun colors or sweetness or flavor whatsoever? With that puffball-headed character, whose Jimmy Durante vocal likeness and mannerisms TOTALLY soared over my head?? (whaddaya expect? I was 8 at the time!!) Yeah, I remember those fer sure *LOL*
