    Quisp and Quake Commercial Production Cel and Storyboard Original Art Group of 8 (Jay Ward, c. 1960s-70s). "Why not leave it to the kids out there? Pick sides with either Quake or Quisp!" to which Quake replies "or Quake!" "Or Quisp!" Quisp retorts. Presented is an incredible collection of original artwork created for animated advertisements of the Quaker cereal brands Quisp and Quake. These delightful commercials of the '60s and '70s were animated by the great Jay Ward, creator/producer of Rocky and Bullwinkle, Peabody and Sherman and Dudley Do-Right among others. Within this set are hand-inked and hand-painted original production cels featuring the spokesmen, and they are accompanied by six original storyboard drawings showcasing the friendly competition between the two. Quake is presented in his original mining helmet rather than the cowboy hat he would wear later on. These delightful pieces are matted together, and the window size on the cels is 7" x 9". The other mat windows range in size and shape from 3.25" x 3" to 4.5" x 3", and the overall mat size is 36.5" x 13". The drawings are rendered in graphite with red and orange pencil, and the cels contain small cutouts of the cereal box art. The cels are presented over printed backgrounds for presentation purposes, and all pieces are trimmed to fit the mat. Minor handling wear, and the condition of this fantastic set is Very Good. The mat is sold as-is.
