Not sure if this was ever mentioned, but while channel surfing, I happened to catch a little
of that Nickelodeon show "Victorious" (no, I wasn't watching it, although there are a lot
of shows on there that are pretty cool). 

Inside the character's locker were several wackies, a little oversized, too.  I think Blunder
Bread was one of them.  It happened so quickly, I didn't keep track.
yep. I snapped this off the TV a couple years back to ask LTL if they were their wall stickers that were being used. never heard anything.
it was odd that they had the flashback electric green and hot pink borders on a couple.

probably good to post that pic in this thread though.

Thought this was the best place to post this. While perusing the news online, came across this. Looks like a new book about things from the 70s and 80s called "Whatever Happened to Pudding Pops?". Take a trip thru the slideshow and enjoy!

not quite a Wacky in the media, but close enough. In a recent episode of the new Flash, (The Elongated Knight Rises 1/23/18), they mentioned how the Trickster and Prank were responsible for a series of attacks across Central City, including the destruction of the Gadzooka Bubblegum Company. Along with a photo of the newspaper article. I did a screen grab, so it's somewhat fuzzy, but the mention is in the first paragraph.

It's a nice book, that I either consulted on or contributed some materials to (it's been a few years).  But the folks who put it together are good ones who I've had many years of happy (and nostalgic) back and forths with as we have each researched things in this realm.    :great:

It occurs to me this may be a whole new category to research. Can anyone think of any more instances where a spokesperson for a real product eventually became a potential spokesperson for the Wacky Package version?
