I don't know if these are what you are thinking of:

1A Sauce
61 Magazine
IOU Magazine

Those are the ones! Nice job.

Here's one.

In terms of the products parodied, what distinction is shared by the 3rd and 14th Series but no other?

You got it Pat.  They are the only series to parody not one but two Topps products each.  Series 14 has the Sugarmess repetition which makes Series 3 the bigger standout for having two new Topps parodies.

Well done!!!

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

Cover Ghoul, right?

Yes that was the 4th title I was looking for.  However, someone finally came up with the answer a while back.

Here is another question:

What do the following four Original Series titles have in common:

Hungry Jerk (3rd Series)
Log Cave-In
Quacker Oats
Nutlee's Quit
Giving "The Hobby" the finger since 1999!

Is this an answer that can be reasoned or does it require some back knowledge?

Actually, BigMuc already answered this question correctly but his post has disappearred from the forum.  I think posts that were made early this morning have been lost.

To answer your question, though, this one doesn't require back knowledge or reasoning!

I guess technically, both of those answers are right.  Although this was not the answer I was looking for.  Here is a hint:

In two weeks, the answer wont' be so easy to see...

No you are still the winner and for your prize you get to come up with the next trivia question!

Also, it is a good idea to put your answers as a spoiler so that others can guess.

Hey Buz ... Rusty's web page cites some of the Wacky incursions into GPK land:

http://www.wacky-packages.net/garbage-pail-kids/crust.htm

Wacky fans, yer collections ain't complete without 'em...


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 will continue the questions with an easy one.  What is the only Wacky that has the name of the product on the Wacky twice, but is spelled two different ways?

Probably has to do with the timeline. I think Poopsie in OS 2, Burpsi OS 8, and by the time they came out with Pupsi (OS 10) Pepsi decided enough and sent the C&D.  I'm speculating on this question, but that would be my guess.

Something to do with the month (6), the series number, and the checklist order? Am I on the right track at all?
