How many references to Wackys have there been on Garbage Pail Kids stickers, old and new?
I can think of two off the top of my head: The cereal bowl kid with "All-Brain" in the background, and Jay Lynch put Crust toothpaste on one of the GPK card backs. There are bound to be more. Other product parodies have appeared in GPKs that were more generic, like "GPK Kola" or some such. Do you have a list, Mark?

Brent Engstrom wove some product parodies into his later ANS GPKs, like a "Barfasol" shaving cream kid and a "Speed Lick" deodorant kid.

Ok, I came up with another one since Brad hasn't come up with one yet.  

TRIVIA QUESTION #2

There are four series which have all of their base set titles on the checklists in CAPS.  Name them……….

This one shouldn't be too tough!

TRIVIA QUESTION #2

There are five series which have all of their base set titles on the checklists in CAPS.  Name them……….

This one shouldn't be too tough!

'82 Irish Set - '91 Series - '92 OPC Series and I thought there would have been an ANS or FB series with all cap.s too, but there isn't so I don't know the last 2.... ??

I'm not sure why I wrote five……….there are actually four that I counted so I edited my original post. 

So you are still one off!

Here's one:  thanks to the sophistication and classiness of the humor of the original 16 series, the words "barf" and "vomit" do not appear on one single 1-16 title.   There is one sticker you will find the word "nauseous", however.  Which one is it?  (1-16 only).

Well, if it's not the sticker I mentioned, your question isn't quite accurate. There must be at least TWO stickers with the word "nauseous" because the Wacky I mentioned does indeed have that word.

Wow you are so right!  I coulda sworn that years ago, I noticed this sticker was the only one with that word.  Doggone.  My first stab at a trivia question did not fly too well!   :-X

OK, here goes a rephrase:

Because of their classy humor, the original 16 titles never once used the terms "barf" or "vomit".  However, you will find "nauseous" on two of the original 1-16 titles.  One is "Heave" from the 4th series....what's the other one?

OK - I have one....

Name four Wackys titles that each appear in more than one series such that they are listed on the checklists as exactly the same title but are actually totally different parodies.

Hope that makes sense.

Now this is a great question.

Hungry Jerk is one.
If we're not talking just original series, Hamel, Badzooka and Eviltime might be others.

I had:

Hungry Jerk (3rd & 5th)
Eviltime (6th & Irish)
Hamel Cigarettes (15th & '85)

I did not have Badzooka on my list.  I assume you are refering to the 10th and '91 titles?  I didn't count that one because the name does not appear exactly the same on the checklist. 

There is one more that I did have on my list that you did not name.

Not to be nit-picky but the '85 version is listed on the Checklist as "G.I. Toe" where the 9th series version is listed as "GI Toe".  There is still one more that I am thinking of.

No and No.  Here is a hint:  For this last title I'm thinking of, both parodies are in the Original Series.

I just started flipping through my Wackys starting with Series One and Duh! Cover Ghoul! Maybe the most obvious one! I swear I didn't peek at Ernie's answer (though I was tempted) and I'm sure definitely sure he would get this one right, as he's a veteran and this should have been an easy one!

And Ernie, I appreciate you keeping the answer hidden so as not to spoil it for me.

Very noble of you, Ernie, even though I dropped the ball at the end there.


- Name an Original Series Wacky parody title that is both a homonym and an anagram of the actual product name.

In other words, the title sounds exactly the same as the actual product name (homonym) and it simply rearranges the letters of the original product name (anagram).

I have one in mind, but there could be more, I suppose.

I don't think anyone else will bother to answer since you already got the answer. But in the meantime, I'll add a little more. I almost included this as Part B of my question the first time.

What are two other Original Series Wacky titles that are anagrams of the original product name? (But not homonyms.)

I can think of two, but there my be more. There is a slight twist to this.
