Hmmmm so they made a cereal that was EXACTLY like their other cereal Kix? Who was the marketing genius behind this Comment posted by owenrock on Thursday, September 10th 2009 at 6:22am.
It was sweeter than Kix and had a golden box for the maple flavor and this green one for the fruity Trix-tasting kind.
This was way before they came out with Honey Kix and Berry Berry Kix, so I guess they were experimenting with the marketing. Soon after this they realized that cereals marketed as healthy actually had to be healthy and not brown Trix in a box with kids exercising on it.

Changed call letters to which the then-WMAL later adopted. The '7' logo used at the time carried over to the WJLA calls for many years thereafter. (Today they use the same 'circle 7' logo as the likes of WLS, WABC, KABC, KGO, KATV, etc.)
The funny (peculiar) coincidence is, 20th Century-Fox had involvements in both "Lost In Space" and the originally released "Star Wars" movies. As well, Red Skelton's production company, Van Bernard, latched itself onto the TV series. (Wonder if this was on the part of CBS to keep him from bolting to "another network" - as was the case a year later when, to persuade Lucille Ball to sign on for another year of "The Lucy Show," they put then-Desilu production "Mission: Impossible" [another future WFLD staple] on the CBS schedule.) Not to mention that Fox now owns 32, has since 1986 . . .
