Patrick, are you sure that Rusted Busted Robots is Hack'em Blackmail 'em Robots? To me, it looks somewhat more like the rough art for Rock'em Sock'em Rabbis (to see this art, look up the link on Reply #6 (1-21-18) on Lost 1992 Wackys that have been released and those that haven't been-yet).

I've got the real names for the WPGTTM stickers that were never released until now:

Sesame Street Magazine (2265)
Dexter's Laboratory (or is it Dexter? I don't know which one) (2270)
A Nightmare on Elm Street (2281)
Avatar (2295).

Also, some more a's and c's:

...; originally intended for lost 1992 series (718)
...(which was... (737)
...Swansong Chicken Snot Pie (see above),... & ...Mean Cuisine Crazed Chicken,... (740-747)
...55 cards each... (1172)
(2018 parody stickers) (1378-1385)
OLDS... (2306 & 2307)
...ANS bonus card B2. (3614)
For six more tattoos that were originally intended for this series (any of which could have filled in the missing three numbers), see Old School 5 above. (3921).

Finally, it's Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) for 2181, 2189, 2192 & 2197. I say this because the American version of the original film Godzilla (1954) had a variation of the same name in 1956. (In case you need to know, the variation was Godzilla, King of the Monsters.)

updates still in work, I'll post when complete

With Godzilla, the title of the next one is a bit fuzzy. Legendary stated "King of Monsters", but then the director later said "King of the Monsters". IMDB still lists the former version, and I personally like that one better, so I'm going with it until it's definitively the other one.

Here's another one: Alpo Beef Chunks Dinner for Dogs (293).

Updates done. thanks for the WPGttM unreleased titles.

After looking up packaging for Rock'em Sock'em, I see it's really a parody of an early 60's box, which is when the Mars Attacks set was released, and not a modern one or the Friedman version.
In the Clingy subset list, I decided for all of them to go with the short checklist names and not the long descriptive names.
A couple a&c's I left as personal preference, such as 2018 Parody Stickers. It's actually in ALL CAPS on the boxes. I may end up deleting it altogether.

Great job, as usual! Just found some more:

Huggies Snug & Dry Diapers (1793 (I should've said that only the word in parentheses needed to be changed. My bad, guess I wasn't too clear again.))
Godzilla: King of Monsters/BIC lighter (2189)
Dexter's Laboratory (2270)
...; originally shown on the box for 1974 Tattoos, but never released until now (2603)
Toppsvault.com... & ...subset. (3921).

Also, on the Note of 2295, move the sentence down one line and adjust it accordingly. It's going into the next section. Finally, there's a misspelling in 2281 and 2295. It's Originally.

Keep up the good work, Patrick!

done.
With Huggies (and a random couple of others) I ended up searching for the actual product to see the naming, and then changed the spreadsheet to match
For the tattoos, I'll go with Topps Vault, as that is the name of the Topps division selling items on ebay.

Yep, there's more:

Heinz Oven Baked Beans with Tomato Sauce (288)
Sara Lee Butter Top Bread (1062)
Rolo Candies (1568 & 2194)
...had at least... (1637)
Tattoos;... & ...without the title was on the box... (2003)
Kraft Thousand Island Dressing (2178)
.../BIC Lighter (2189)
Hungry-Man Frozen Dinner (2190)
Cesar Dog Food (2198)
Black Forest Gummy Bears (2652)
...in this series (3893 & 3894)
...at the Gross Card Con;... (4260).

Also, I saw on Jeff Allender's House of Checklists  that the name of 2547-2555 was Walla Walla Wackys Old School All-Stars. Can you check this out and see if this is true? If so, you may need to fix it. Finally, on an earlier post you mentioned that, in addition to Kentucky Fried Fingers, there were seven other Wackys that were pulled from the 8th series. Could you please put them in, too? I'm curious as to which ones they are. When you do, please use the same sentence that's with KFF. Thanks!

This thread as gotten so long with all the details that I don't remember where the master list is anymore, either.

Maybe Patrick will explain the purpose and directions for us.

I'll check the other things later -

With the baseball set, Walla Walla is the city name for the Wacky team as listed on the back of the cards (just like on the Topps 1972 baseball set that these are imitating, e.g. 'Houston' for the card with 'Astros' on the front). The subset itself is the called the All-Stars, as Dave indicated in his sales emails back in 2012:
"Also look for: 9-card subset titled "Old School All-Stars" featuring 9 Wacky baseball cards and a few special surprises in every box!"

With the pulled titles, I'm not sure that's something I really want to get into with this spreadsheet, as there are well over 50 titles that were C&D'd in the original sets. I was thinking the spreadsheet was mainly a comprehensive list of titles by series along with their actual product names for reference. It's certainly grown to include trivia and ancillary data of all sorts. Right now the C&D info is captured in text nowhere else, so maybe someday.

that's a good question!

post #1 has the link to the spreadsheet and Mitch's original intent.
I was thinking the spreadsheet was mainly a comprehensive list of titles by series along with their actual product names for reference. It's certainly grown beyond that to include trivia and ancillary data. The boundary of data for this spreadsheet seems fuzzy, but my take is that it should stay limited to core info of card names/sets/real products.

Patrick, I did some counting just for the fun of it and, out of the over 50 Wackys that you said were pulled due to C&Ds, I counted 32 on the Spreadsheet. Just thought you'd like to know. I think that's a pretty good number-a little bit over half of them (including the Die-Cuts and the Wacky Ads, of course, as well as the 16 OS). None of the 1985 series had anything pulled (as far as I know) and the 1991 series had only one pulled, but I don't think that that one counts in this case. Of the 21st century Wackys, ANS1 had the most pulled stickers-five in all (the three that are mentioned in the Spreadsheet plus two more: Bacteria (Bactine) and Usneeze (Febreze)). Of those two, Bacteria was done in OLDS1, but it was the 1970s packaging, not the 2004 one, so it doesn't count here. Any other Wackys that were pulled from any of the ANS run were ultimately released later in other ANS, the various Postcards series, 2014 S1 and 2015 S1 (see the Spreadsheet to find out which ones were done and where they were released).

above updates done. (think you meant line 2603 for the tattoos)
1637 - they still do, so present tense
3893&4, don't see the need to alter it from what is used with set 1.

rest of the 90 base titles are now filled in for Movie set.

Excellent, Patrick! Just two titles need to be fixed:

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2201)
It: Chapter 1 (2240 & 2246)

Also, these need to be fitted so that they don't bleed into the next section, like they're doing now:

2231
2239
2252
4260

Keep up the good work!

2201:  found the movie poster it's based one and it's actually The Last Knight

That's strange about It, as it was never advertised as Chapter One. But now that it did well enough for them to commit to finishing the novel with a second film, which will be called It: Chapter Two, it seems they've done a retro-active re-naming of the first one.

the spill-over was intentional. there's no info in the Notes column for any of the base cards, and I like the look of all of the info in single height rows.

I don't know about any retroactive renaming of It: Chapter 1, but when I did see it, that was the title right there at the end of the film. But you're right: it's strange that they didn't call it that on the poster or in the ads. By the way, what's with this thing about putting the title at the end of the film? When did that get started and does you or anyone else know what film started it?

guess I just don't remember that closing credit, but then, I wasn't all that enthralled with the movie while watching it on blu-ray.

there's the infamous case of George Lucas getting fined $250,000 by the Director's Guild for not having the director's name in the opening credits.
in 1977, Star Wars was one of very few films to just have an opening title, but even though others had done the same before, he got fined.
Showing only the title became the trend by the end of the 80's, and at least according to Wiki, opening titles started disappearing in '04/'05 with Van Helsing and Batman Begins.

Patrick, I seem to have been a little too hasty in labeling all the 50th Anniversary Wackys as "Made Up Product". Some of them look like they were based on actual products. Here's what I've found so far, in no particular order:

Lady Gaga/Bicycle Playing Cards
The Toho Godzilla series/Cheetos Crunchy
Ariana Grande/Starbucks Coffee
Bill Gates/Windex
Hillary Clinton/Hillshire Farm Smoked Ham
eBay/Bayer Aspirin
The Big Bang Theory/Jiffy Pop Popcorn
My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic/Elmer's Glue-All
Wonder Woman/Ronzoni Linguine

That's all that I can find for now. Can you or anyone else find anything that I've missed, so that it can be added to the Spreadsheet?
