I loved this cereal too... mostly for the imagery and great magnets... which I think I still have somewhere! I loved Freakies too, with their commercials with the big dark tree.

I remember eating this cereal back in 1976 when I was four years old. It was really good (tasted a lot like Captain Crunch). I was sad when it was discontinued.

I ate this cereal many times back in the 1970s. It was really, really great.

A great cereal! I was crushed when they took the cereal off the market! I was 7 years old when this happened... I am now 47 years old, and if Ralston were to re-launch GSGL, I would buy it for myself and my kids to eat for breakfast! They just don't make them like they used to.

I remember loving this cereal so much as a kid in the 70s that I wrote the company praising this cereal. They then sent my a coupon for a free box. As soon as I got the coupon in the mail I rushed to the store to get my free box not realizing I needed 3 cents for taxes which I didn't have. I went straight back home to get 3 cents and rushed back to the store. It's amazing what's important to you as a child.

The seventies cereal with smiling faces. If they still produced this, I would gladly buy a box and do an adult review. But as a kid in the seventies, anything with sugar would have been rated a 5. So... with a kids memory. I do indeed rate this as a firm 5 out of 5 golden eggs.

We could never get the Cecil magnet. Why no Cecil? Quite traumatizing for a 6 year old. Luckily, I was soon too distracted with Star Wars to care.

I still have a bunch of the walkers, a couple of the magnets and I have the Cecil lamp, which was a rare mail-away premium. This and Freakies were my childhood favorites!

This was one of my favorites! I had the magnets and the toys, too. Not many of my friends remember it at all.

This cereal was really good and I still have Grins, Smiles, & Laughs refrigerator magnets. I remember having a couple of the plastic incline toys too, but those are long gone. For some reason, we never got a Giggles or the Cecil magnet.

Grins & Smiles & Giggles & Laughs was a favorite of mine. I've read several places about magnets that came in the cereal. I don't remember the magnets, but I do remember the little plastic toys that came with it. Place them on an incline and they would waddle down the incline.

I collected the magnets like crazy, but there was one character that was the one that was hard to get. I can't remember which one though? Anybody remember which one it was?

My Mother signed my sister and I up to be cereal testers in the late 1960's. We would periodically get a couple of plain white boxes of cereal and a questionnaire to fill out and send back. We had Quisp, Fruity and Chocolaty Pebbles, Boo Berry, Count Chocula, and a few others before they hit the market! G&S&G&L was one of my favorites, and I still have some of the magnets and 3 of the walkers!

I must have been 3 or 4 when I last had this cereal. All I can remember (vaguely) are the commercials featuring the machine. I also remember assembling one of the little walking toys with my dad, but being really mad that it didn't work. Thanks for posting this, I can sleep until I try to remember some other childhood memory.

I remembered "Grins & Smiles & Giggles & Laughs" cereal when it first came out. After watching the commercials, I had my mom or dad buy me a box to try. It had a slight cinnamon honey-like taste; and although I'd enjoyed it, my brothers and sister didn't care too much for it. Also, it cost a little bit more than the other cereals (possibly about $3.99 or $4.99 in '77 or '78); but I thought it looked pretty cute the way each one looks like a smiley face. ( ^_^ )

For the life of me I can't remember what this cereal tasted like but I know I LOVED it even more than my Boo Berry. Maybe the futuristic appeal? Imagine if we had a bowl today and thought - ICK!

I used to love this cereal. Don't remember the commercial. But I was collecting those walking action figures. I remember on the back of the box was a cardboard square with different size squares inside it. Depending on which figure you got in the box, you were supposed to cut out a certain size square to use as a weight, which you attached to the figure with string, hang it off the edge of the table, and it would make the figure "walk" towards the edge of the table.

I have one of the little toy prizes that came with this cereal. They were little single-colored characters holding boxes, that "walked" down ramps. Mine is grown with blue shoes. Loved this stuff growing up!

I actually have the magnets on a file cabinet at work. I also have Tuneymoon and Freakies magnets, as well. Most of the young folks at the office have no clue. They are certainly a topic of conversation.

I used to visit my aunt on her farm with my parents and she used to buy a box because that was the only way she could get me to drink fresh cows milk. That cereal was awsome and so was my aunt.

I have been searching for this cereal forever. I remembered that the taste reminded me of Cap'n Crunch which I loved as well. I knew it had a long name but couldn't remember any of the parts. I think I had a magnet too or plastic spoons, but that could have been Josie and the Pussycats. Thanks for listing. Now I know I'm not nuts.

This cereal was not available in Canada but every time we vacationed south of the border I begged my mom to buy it... I even managed to get her to bring some back home a few times... it's been my favorite cereal since I was a kid... bring it back!

Finally, after all these years I found it. Been racking my brain for decades trying to figure out this cereal. Some people had no clue what I was talking about. Cereal with a robot. Loved them as a kid and smiles on the cereal are etched in my brain. Where can I get a tee-shirt of this or a patch. Thanks website and thanks i-net.

I agree with Marman's assessment of this cereal! It was the best ever made! I hadn't considered that it tasted just like "Freakies" or "Mr. T" cereal. But come to think of it... I guess it did. And those two cereals I was crazy about as well.

The smile shapes are exactly like those from Morning Funnies cereal in the 1980s. I vaguely remember seeing this cereal somewhere when I was very small.

Omg so loved this cereal when I was a little girl. I actually remember eating several boxes in hopes of getting a magnet of the robot. I kept getting one the guy characters, but yes I did finally get the robot magnet, wish I still had it.

I had a toy from this cereal that was the robot on the from of the box. You tied a string to the front of the toy and when you pulled it, it looked like it was walking. Classic!

This is still my greatest cereal ever. None of the other kids had it. My mom used to buy it on the military base at the commissary. Even today, I mention it to people and they have no idea what I'm talking about. They stopped making it and some years later came out with Mr. T cereal that tasted JUST like it. I have yet to find another cereal that comes close to this one.

I remember this cereal vividly. It came out the same year Freakies cereal was removed from shelves, was made by the same company, and tasted identical! As a kid, I was shocked! I ate it anyway.
