I don't remember the taste other than I liked it. But I remember loving the commercials... and I had all of the figures. Dad had to disassemble the bathroom sink trap to rescue my Grumble. Saved the day! What happened to the display stands that are shown in the photos? I want to buy one.

This and Quisp were the best. I wish they'd bring them back again.

Original Freakies were one of the crunchiest, best tasting cereals I ever had during my childhood. I remember sending away for all of the plastic character figures - it seemed like I waited an eternity for them to arrive! I wish I still had them today - but not as much as I wish I could enjoy a bowl of that Original Freakies! Come on Ralston! Bring it back for us children of that magical era!

My brother and I bugged our Mom for weeks to buy this and finally she did. Breakfast came and there we were at the as table excited as we could be... the cereal was poured into our bowls, the milk added, we dug in and excitement turned to horror. This was the worst cereal we had ever eaten. Our mother noticed our expressions and asked what was wrong, we told her how nasty it was, she yelled a bit about how much it cost and that we were going to have to eat it before we could get something else. She said it could not be that bad and grabbing my brothers bowl she took a bite... I am not kidding a bit when I say that she gagged just a little. The Freakies went into the trash where they belonged. This was hands down the worst cereal I have ever eaten.

My dad bought a case of Freakies (24 boxes) for all 6 kids to share. I think I ended up eating 18 boxes. A really good cereal.

The song used in the commercial comes from the popular 1950s song "The Book of Love", in which the singer asked the question, "I wonder-wonder who, who-oo-oo... who wrote the Book of Love?". In the television commercial, the lyrics were changed to: "I wonder-wonder who, who-oo-oo... Who made the Freakies' Trees?"

This cereal brings back childhood memories like no other! It was not even the cereal itself that made it, it was the characters and their story that carried such an impact. I loved their story, their search for what was true and basic about "humanity". I have all characters and wish someone would bring back the cereal complete with "plastic toy Freakies inside each specially marked packages".

Where are the Freakies 'bad guys' (crumbbum, laughs, cecil the robot)? I'm sure they were part of the Freakies gang but then again that was a few years ago.

Freakies was a very yummy cereal - another one that should make a limited edition comeback. I wonder who owns the rights now that Ralston doesn't make commercial cereals anymore.

I loved this cereal. I bought it every week for my daughter, who was 4 at the time, wish they would bring it back! I was the only cereal she would eat. I still have all the magnets on my freezer to this day. They make me smile each and every day.

The beauty of waxing nostalgia. I have a few of these magnets. One of those morning shows (The Early Show, I think) featured a cereal box collector who claimed he payed $500 or traded $500 worth of material possessions for a Freakies box. Un-Freakin'-real!!! No pun intended. Who woulda thunk people would pay top dollar for a cardboard box with pretty pictures printed on 'em. Oi!

I want psychedelic, freaky cereals to come back. The 1970's were the best for cereals. They're so boring today by comparison... I mean the boxes more than the cereals themselves. Come on cereal companies, get weird. We like it.

Freakies was one of my favorites. I remember in 5th grade the whole class loved it. One girl did a report on each character and drew their pictures. She did a great job. My dad bought a case of it for my brothers and sisters. Since there were six of us it was gone in no time. I wish it would come back.

My parents would laugh hysterically when I, a shy elementary school kid, would read to them the story of the origin of the Freakies. Freakies cereal and the Banana Splits Club made for a perfect Saturday.

This was the best monster cereal, yes! even better than Frankenberry, CountChocula, Boo Berry, Wolf Berry & Yummy Mummy Cereals. Who ever didn't get to try this cereal my bleeding heart goes out to you poor guys. Please every one get any body you think of to vote on bringing this awesome cereal back to store shelves. I'm 46 now and I can still remember the taste.

Bring Back the Freakies! Totally remember these guys... Was my all-time favorite cereal. Sure it was alot like Cap'n Crunch or Quisp. But I loved their jingle and the always interesting story pitch with the various commercials... little mini stories. So the cereal always won the vote with all the kids in the house! Used to collect the little toys in the box too. Such as the magnets of the little characters. VERY COOL. Bring Back the FREAKIES!

Well, the reason the second intro of Freakies didn't work is because Ralston gave the account back to the agency but didn't realize I wasn't at the agency anymore. The creative team they put on it decided to change everything about the Freakies and in the process took away all their character and originality. Freakies became a me-too cereal and didn't last a year. (Gosh. I guess I'm still bitter about this!) - Jackie End

Wow, I'm so glad I found this site. I've been searching for the origin of my little Boss Moss fridge magnet. I honestly have no recollection of this cereal but now I know where he's from. It sure sounds good yummy.

I don't remember anything about the cereal itself, just the jingle and the name. Growing up with a last name like Frickey (born in '67 so I was 7-10 when it came out) you can imagine how often I heard comments! Never really bothered me, but it is something I have never forgotten.

This cereal was all I cared about back in the day when a small plastic toy or magnet was so satisfying to search out and collect in a cereal box. I am bummed my kids will never know the simple pleasures I experienced as a child like this yummy cereal. Great cereal, jingle, toys and characters. Perfect marketing and product. Miss it and would love to get a bowl tomorrow morning.

I was a huge fan of the Freakies cereal back in the 70's. I can remember collecting all of the plastic figures, balloon cars etc. and still having them even to this day. I miss the cereal a lot and wish that some cereal company would make a come back with it. I can't get that cereal jingle out of my head... lol. Ralston Purina made an excellent cereal and though the boxes weren't very big it was well worth the money for around .69 cents and today the boxes are also getting much smaller for 3 times as much which is a total rip-off but that's another story... BRING BACK THE FREAKIES!!

I was telling my 8 year old daughter about these little creatures I spent hours playing with when I was her age... (I was born in 1964) It finally dawned on me they were from a cereal. I did a search, and realized I wasn't making it up! Wasn't there a tree too?

I went a good 20 years wondering if I had imagined this as a child. I kept asking people "do you remember freakies?", and even sing them the theme song, and I just got weird looks... it wasn't until I found a freakies website back in 1997 were my memories validated....
