Just found another one:

DoughPro (GoPro) (4769).

This is Neil Camera's Wacky Cameras holiday card for 2018.

Hey Patrick, everything all right with you? I haven't heard from you in a while and I'm starting to wonder what's going on here.

My Christmas and New Year's were great! Again, how were yours?

How goes the a's and c's? Are you almost finished?

Hope to hear back from you soon.

I take it back! Not only are you almost finished, but, as usual, you're doing a great job yet again! I never knew that so much work had been done here while I was out!

Only a few things that I've just noticed need to be done and most of them are for the sake of consistency:

*...without copyright. Both variations are equally common; therefore, neither one is more valuable than the other. (858 & 904). This is a known fact, so I'll leave it up to you as to how it's written out.
*...either "mr. Goonbar" or "mr. Goober" (1048) Never even noticed this one, did you?
*... (glow in the dark version) (2650) Since 2627 is this, this one-and any future Wackys of the 1970s glow in the dark versions of the Aurora Monster Models (if any)-should be this, too.
*"Mystery poster" only available as part of a complete set purchase (3904) This is just to be the same as the Halloween Plaques section.
*...by toppsvault.com... (3407) Is this an actual correction or am I just imagining it?
*Unknown (3950)
*Artist contributions from:... (4324-4332). The "With", I think, is unnecessary here. It should be this, with the other part still saying Gag contributions from... .

Also, both 418 & 1200 need to be reduced from two rows down to one. By this, I mean that there's a space above the text in both of them that needs to be taken down just a little bit.

Good break and good holidays.
I think I started in on all the a's and c's but didn't quite finish, so I hadn't made a 'all caught up' post.
But, it's mostly caught up.
there were a few things I was deciding on, like how best to include the Wacky DVD project and some of the patch discussion too.
I've already included the new 20 Wacky Pail cards, so there's that, too! :-)

I'll probably have time this weekend to get to the rest, as I have an unexpected mandatory 3 day weekend due to the current gov't furlough situation.

Patrick, I've got an idea as to how to put in the info on the unmade Wacky DVDs into the ANS4 section.

Just remove all the Notes on Lost Wackys that need to be removed and then you can put it in at the beginning of the section. The only ones that you need to keep on the Spreadsheet are 947, 987-988, 994-1003 and 1013.

Hope this works.

UPDATE: I see that you've removed all of the unnecessary Notes except for two-933 and 991. That's good! As soon as you remove those two, you can do this.

Very good indeed, Patrick! Only a few left, I think. In fact, I only saw three:

*Keebler Club Crackers - Original (1571 & 2795),
*Unknown (3950).

Also, I think that 2794 and 2795's Notes should be combined into one Note and placed in 2795, since promo card NS3 appeared before the Bio postcard did. Therefore, the Note would then be: Same product as ANS10 but different design; given out at the Philly Non-Sports Card Show (2795). Plus, the aforementioned real name should also be placed in 2795, as shown above.

Next, I just found these a's and c's:

*Chock Full O' Nuts Coffee (95, 598 & 1893),
*Taster's Choice Coffee (215, 1574, 2781, 3560 & 3813),
*Yuban Regular Grind Coffee (322),
*Bosco Real Chocolate Flavored Syrup (358 & 631),
*Maxim Freeze-Dried Coffee (359),
*Boone's Farm Wine - Old Fashioned 100% Pure Apple (360),
*Del Monte Whole Leaf Spinach (361),
*Chase & Sanborn Coffee (424),
*Savirin Premium Coffee (428 & 578),
*The Laughing Cow Cheese (588),
*Folgers Classic Roast Coffee (727, 1419 & 3560),
*Purina Kibbles 'n Bits (915 & 1422),
*Yuban Traditional Decaffeinated Coffee (1289),
*Maxwell House Coffee (1429) - I don't know which variety that this one is,
*Mattel Barbie (1433 & 4271) - these are meant for the doll, but possibly not the movie (see below),
*Charms Blow Pop (1535 & 1806),
*Folgers Coffee (1981, 3630 & 4013) - again, I don't know which variety that these are, either,
*Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) (2181, 2189, 2192 & 2197) - the first number that's listed here is the year of release and should be included in order to avoid confusion with the 1956 version, similar to what was done with The Mummy (2017) in 2186 and 2249,
*Barbie (2258) - is this the right title for this movie, or is it Mattel's Barbie? I'm not sure which one of these is right,
*Fleer Crazy Magazine Covers (2360),
*Brim Decaffeinated Coffee (2481),
*Mellow Roast Ground Coffee and Grain Beverage (2513),
*Sanka Regular Grind Coffee (2634),
*Phillies Blunt Cigars (2722),
*Maxwell House Regular Grind Coffee (4217).

Finally, Promo should replace Bonus in 4058.

This one's a little bit longer, Patrick, so I'll put it here.

Topps should be added to the beginning of the real name of all of these: 171-172, 192, 251, 344, 355, 416, 444, 491, 494, 533, 621, 711-712, 719, 886, 979, 1041, 1139, 1156, 1246, 1341, 1442, 1457, 1526, 1670, 1705, 1878, 1937, 2420, 2477, 2503, 2560, 2575, 2590,  2615-2616, 2673-2675, 3558, 3858, 4062 & 4298.

By the way, are Push Pop and Juicy Drop Pop labeled as Topps products also, like Ring Pop is? If they are, please let me know and I'll add them in here, too.

UPDATE: They're Topps products, all right, so I've added all of them. I've also added all the Baby Bottle Pop ones on the grounds that I think that that's a Topps product, too.

UPDATE 2: It is.

Patrick, I found something that could possibly be added to the Non-Topps section.

I was looking through Greg Grant's website and found four series of a homemade, unofficial product called Wacky Packages Boxes, which are stickers of paintings of some of the various boxes (filled with packs, of course) that Wackys have had over the years.

This doesn't seem to be something that Matt Stock (who, as far as I can see, doesn't seem to be well-liked around here) is involved with, but if I'm wrong, please tell me. Could these series be added in at all?

The box stickers are produced by Greg and Matt. They are not paintings, they are photos of the actual boxes (with photoshopping).

All caught up on this, that and the other recent posts you've made with your updates and corrections. (fyi - the Wacky DVD update has actually been in the spreadsheet for a while now)

and as Dave indicates - those WP Boxes sets (eight of them?) are simply photos of the actual boxes (+ a couple that are total fakes), so I don't see any reason to include them in the listings

Good job, Patrick! First, two Topps products that I forgot:

*Topps Gold Rush Bubble Gum (251)
*Topps Lotsa Loot (494).

Next, this one:

*Krackel Miniature (2728).

Next, one product that I just found out about:

*Puss 'n Boots Whiskers Cat Food (3392) (by the way, Puss 'n Boots was a real cat food brand back in the day).

Next, there's no dash after Wacky Packages/Wacky Package in these products: 192, 979, 1878, 1937, 2503, 2560, 2616, 2673-2675 and 3858 and there's no dash after Garbage Pail Kids in these products: 1041 and 1705. For example, the non-sticker products would be Wacky Package Posters, Wacky Package Tattoos, Wacky Packages Postcards, etc.

Next, a product combo that I forgot (silly me!):

Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019)/Enoz Moth Balls (2192).

Next, 2298 should be Scooby-Doo Where Are You! with no comma. This is in order for it to be the same as 1825. (I've seen the show many times and there's no comma in the title at all.)

Next, both this real name - Keebler Club Crackers - Original -  and this Note - Same product as ANS10 but different design; given out at the Philly Non-Sports Card Show - should be in 2795. The reasons for this are given in Reply #881 above and, once again, this should be done, I think, for the sake of consistency.   

Finally, I think that this one should be like this:

*Topps 75th Anniversary (4127).

If you could get these in, that would be it for now. Thanks!

Patrick, I think that all the Notes from the OS run, ANS run, etc., that I got from lostwackys.com that are based on roughs (i.e., the ones that say "Originally intended for...", etc.) that need to be removed should be removed.

I think that you're right in this case; it's only just so much clutter here.

Thanks, Patrick and Dave, for telling me about the WP Boxes sets (I only saw four series, though, Patrick). I take it that Matt Stock doesn't have many friends here, if any at all.

Now, Patrick, what I'd like to know is: which boxes in which series were the fakes?

Let me clarify here that not all the Notes need to be removed. The ones that should be kept are Notes that say that a Wacky was meant for one series but was published in another, known facts about any Wacky-related subject, etc.

I'll leave it up to you, Patrick. I know that that part is in good hands.

I believe the Irish Whiskeys (3392) is actually Whiskas cat food (not Whiskers), and have updated accordingly.

Scooby-Doo seems to have an endless variety of naming styles:
Scooby Doo Where are You!
Scooby-Doo Where are You!
Scooby-Doo, Where are You!
Scooby-Doo! Where are You?
The first season did not have the dash between Scooby and Doo, whereas it's always there later on. And from what I see when looking at any online source, when written, the title always contains the comma, whereas the title shown on screen does not.

I did some clean up on the multiple Clubbeds. I'd like to find out who the artist is for the ANS10 B7 Clubbed, to add that tidbit, since we know George Wright did the postcard version.

Thanks, Patrick! I'm in Georgia now and haven't got any access to the Spreadsheet, but I'll look at it when I can.

UPDATE: I just saw it now and it's great! Only two that you forgot to fix:

*Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019)/Enoz Moth Balls (2192)
*Puss 'n Boots Whiskas Cat Food (3392).

Plus, you forgot to remove all of the dashes from the real names of the Topps Wacky Packages and Garbage Pail Kids parodies.

Now, for some that I just found:

*Gravy Train Dog Food (104)
*Certs - Peppermint (139)
*Curtiss Butterfinger (160)
*Gillette Right Guard Spray Deodorant (166)
*Marlboro Filter Cigarettes (222 & 2720)
*Curtiss Baby Ruth (266)
*ScotTissue Toilet Paper (321)
*Viva Absorbent Paper Towels (352)
*Heide Jujyfruits (365)
*Winston Filter Cigarettes (369)
*Certs - Spearmint (371)
*The Original Raggedy Ann (372)
*G.I. Joe Land Adventurer (373)
*Sheaffer Skrip (ink) (375)
*Life Savers - Pep-O-Mint (379)
*Genuine Phillips' Milk of Magnesia (380)
*Vaseline Pure Petroleum Jelly (381)
*"Ouchless" Curad Elastic Bandages (384)
*B&M New England Brick Oven Baked Beans (385)
*Topps Planet of the Apes (1974-75 TV series version) (416) - it should say this in order to distinguish this trading card series from the other two Topps Planet of the Apes trading card series-the one for the 1968 first film version and the one for the 2001 second film version. Also, the 1974-75 TV season is what's mentioned here in this name.
*Heide Mexican Hats (446)
*Originally intended for an unpublished 1974 Wacky Magazines series (479) - this is the only magazine that I forgot.     
*Altoids - Cinnamon (738) - please do all of the Altoids names as written; this is based on the packaging type for each one.
*...with different name, art and tagline for... (762)
*Life Savers - Fresh Mint (860 & 1223) - I think that these two are right, but I'm not sure. If they're not, please fix accordingly.
*Lipton Brisk Iced Tea (874)
*Nabisco Chicken in a Biskit (962) - a Nabisco cookie/cracker product that I forgot.
*Nabisco Lorna Doone (1128) - another Nabisco cookie/cracker product that I forgot. They've both been added to Reply #787 on 7-11-18.
*Mike and Ike (1149)
*Vaseline Petroleum Jelly (1163)
*Hungry-Man Frozen Dinner (1214)
*Old Spice Classic Deodorant Stick - Original Scent (1252)
*Right Guard Deodorant Stick (1260) - I don't know which variety of this product that this is - and I've checked, believe me. If you know what it is, please include it in the name (I think that it may be something like (Blank) Scented, just like it is on the sticker, but I'm not sure).
*Betty Crocker Dunkaroos (1346) - this, too, has been added to Reply #787 on 7-11-18 in a new section. It's the only cookie/cracker entry for this company, surprisingly.
*Jell-O Gelatin Cups (1453)
*Life Savers - Five Flavor (1517)
*Altoids - Peppermint (1773 & 4296)
*Boyer Mallow Cup (2729 & 2834)
*Mike and Ike - Original Fruits (2730)
*Old Spice Classic Deodorant Stick (2742)
*Callard & Bowser Altoids - Peppermint (2762)
*Ferrana Pan Lemonhead (2763)
*Nescafe Taster's Choice Instant Coffee (2781)
*Stride - Spearmint/PayDay (2802).

Also, please put Pepperidge Farm at the beginning of all of the Goldfish crackers' names and change the rest of them to either Goldfish - Original or Goldfish - Cheddar. They're at 685, 1325, 1638 & 1933. These have also been added to Reply #787 on 7-11-18 in a new section.

Good work on the Clubbed Crackers Wackys! However, 2795 does need a double row in the Notes section.

I'll keep you posted if I find anything else, of course.

Thanks for telling me this, Patrick! I only saw six when I looked at the site.

I guess that they're not lacking for boxes, obviously.

Are there any other fakes in the mix besides the two that you mentioned?

You also said that a 9th series was "apparently planned for" - and then you stopped there. Were you going to mention the year that it was planned for, or am I mistaken here?

Here's some more, Patrick:

*This is the only cease-and-desisted Wacky that actually spawned a lawsuit that ended up going to court. Topps, however,... (536; another row will probably have to be added to this Note to accommodate this sentence),
*...for 1991 series; however, the... (721; this is being done for grammatical correctness),
*...as ANS10 Bonus Sticker B1 (738; the mentions of the term Bonus Sticker in this and the Other Notes are for consistency, since that's what they're called on the card backs),
*...lower print run than Bonus Sticker B1,... (739),
*Nabisco Teddy Grahams - Honey (853 & 1523),
*Eight O'Clock Coffee - Original (1061),
*Sunshine Krispy Saltine Crackers - Original (1105),
*...the back of Octivia (ANS7) and was... (1367),
*Shrek Forever After (1382),
*A similarly named parody in Wacky Packages Postcards... and ...at the Spring 2012 Philly Non-Sports Card Show (NS3). (1571; this Note will have to be double-rowed to accommodate this and the first part is also being done for grammatical correctness),
*...a Mars Attacks Martian... (1655),
*...card 55 and C variation... (1732; no comma needed here),
*Scooby Doo Where Are You! (1825 & 2298; this is so that they can both match and be like the original series' title (right now, they don't and they aren't)),
*Coffee-Mate Non-Dairy Creamer (1853; I think that this is the right real name for this one as it's labeled today; if not, please adjust accordingly),
*Star Trek/ScotTissue (2172),
*The Six Dollar Man (new) (2208),
*.../Nabisco Honey Maid Teddy Grahams - Cinnamon (2245),
.../Fantastik All-Purpose Cleaner (2252),
..., the tattoo art... (2603; this, too, is also being done for grammatical correctness),
*Campbell's Chunky Soup - Classic Chicken Noodle (2678)
*...A similarly named parody... (2794 & 2795; the second Note will have to be double-rowed to accommodate this and, again, both of them are being done for grammatical correctness),
*Butcherfingers (2829; this is the name that was used on the postcard),
*The Phillie Phanatic-... (2954)
...(production proof pages were auctioned by the Topps Vault via eBay). ... (3407; I think that this is the same event as the one mentioned in the Note in 3951; if so, another row needs to be added to this Note to accommodate this sentence),
*...and later as ANS1 Bonus Sticker B2. (3644),
*#1-5 sold... (3899-3904),
13 patches..., the 12 'released' versions above... & ...a second sew-on set of 12... (3937-3949; basically, I think that, in future entries, the numbers 0-9 should be written as words and any number above one digit should be written as a regular number in order to save space - but that's just me, I guess),
*...that the book had, only with different card backs. &..., but they probably would have been the same as the book's were. (4065-4068),
*#1-6 sold... (4128-4134),
*Prez (4187; the name of the Wacky needs to be backspaced to the edge of the line),
*Taster's Choke (new) (4230; this is so that this one matches the other two entries for the name above it)
*Radio Flyer Wagon (4336).


Also, these next two from the section Halloween Postcards (series 4) need a little re-doing here. MuMmy's (yellow wrapper) (2803) is actually numbered as 2 of 6 on the postcard, so that one should actually be switched to 2798 (right below MuMmy's (brown wrapper) (2797)) and re-numbered there as a second 2 (similar to how the re-numbered Die-Cuts are done; see that section above). Everything below this new 2798, therefore, should then be moved one number down right up to the end of the Spreadsheet. Next, Strike/SlayDay's Note should be re-done as: Included with regular edition only (because it's in that one, not in the limited edition (the limited edition of this series, it turns out, had six postcards and the regular edition had seven)). Finally, I think that the resulting 2797 and 2798's Wacky names should be changed to Morbid Chocolate MuMmy's and Petrified MuMmy's because that's what the names are on each of the postcards.

Clarity and consistency, my friend. Clarity and consistency. In the end, that's all that really matters here.

Finally, I've been looking it over and these are the only Notes left that should be combined into one block:
*1861-1867,
*2000-2005,
*2110-2119,
*2120-2129,
*2130-2139,
*2140-2149,
*2300-2319,
*2320-2329,
*2330-2339,
*2340-2349,
*3627-3631,
*3896-3899,
*3915-3922,
*3923-3924 (the Note should also say: ...no Topps copyright on the iron-ons in this series (the Note, of course, will have to be double-rowed to accommodate this)),
*4068-4070,
*4123-4125.

Thanks, Patrick!

Patrick, I take it that you went to the Allentown show.

How did it go? Did you get a lot of Wackys that you needed? Or any other stuff? Please, details!

I wish that something like that would happen down here in sunny FL, so that I could meet you, guys and gals, and show you my Wackys, plus my other trading cards.

Oh well, maybe someday...

Patrick, how goes it on the a's and c's? Any progress so far?

I know there's a lot this time, but how far have you gotten? 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 done?

As promised, the breakfast cereal products and anything connected with them. Patrick, please put these at the beginning of each name whenever you can:

Kellogg's: 137, 164 (all four products), 698, 704, 709, 890, 897, 972, 1036, 1036, 1056, 1059, 1130, 1146, 1272, 1280, 1308, 1320, 1337, 1338, 1360, 1407, 1511, 1566, 1652, 1654, 1771, 1774, 1789, 1796, 1875, 1886, 1914, 1925, 2050, 2367, 2455, 2817, 2820 & 4300

General Mills: 102, 188, 210, 249, 465, 710, 715, 773, 816, 852, 914, 968, 1018, 1073, 1242, 1312, 1362, 1428, 1434, 1460, 1532, 1551, 1562, 1643, 1656, 1763, 1915, 2048, 2051, 2053, 2373, 2399, 2454, 2528, 2562, 2613, 2643, 2664, 2743, 2744, 2746, 3829 & 4305-4309

Post: 146, 260, 815, 898, 953, 1101, 1232, 1705, 1814, 2052, 2054, 2407, 2471, 2689, 2719, 2821 & 3224

Quaker: 133, 876, 984, 1376, 1882, 1939, 2047, 2055, 2142, 2359, 2508, 2511, 2518, 2614, 2706, 2748 & 2851

Nabisco: 1363, 1527, 1766, 3258, 3263, 3311, & 3315

Ralston: 662, 2415, 2580 & 2657

Pillsbury: 232.

The only exceptions here are Heartburn (Heartland) (368) and Alpain (Alpen) (433). Heartland, I found out, was originally made by the same company that made Pet Evaporated Milk and Alpen was originally made by Colgate-Palmolive.

I Know that you're busy with all of the other a's and c's, so please take your time on this one. If I missed anything, please let me know and I'll add it in.

Next time around, the candy products. After that, as far as product types are concerned, it's done. I only intend to do these two types, just like I did cookies and crackers before. After that, I don't think that there are any big groups of product types left.

May was a very busy month and I haven't tackled any of the above posts yet. But I'll be getting to it all fairly soon.

oh, an fyi with the above while I'm thinking of it, while Alpen was distributed by Colgate-Palmolive in the States, it was actually manufactured by Weetabix in England

You also said that a 9th series was "apparently planned for" - and then you stopped there. Were you going to mention the year that it was planned for, or am I mistaken here?
nothing left off the sentence, other than an implied "as can be seen in the picture below"

and glancing at ebay just now, I see there is already both a 10th and 11th available. I heard at the Philly show that these will continue up to a series 16, so expect these to keep showing up throughout the rest of the year

Thanks, I didn't know that about Alpen. I also didn't see what you were saying about the Wacky Boxes series, either.

Good to see that you're back! If you don't mind my asking, was it vacation, business or a little of both?

I know that the 2019 Philly Non-Sport Card Show has come and gone and I see that you went; did you get anything interesting, Wackys or otherwise?

Wow, 16 series, just like the OS run. Coincidence? I don't think so; Homey don't play that.

And like I said, they're obviously not lacking for boxes.

Just one question, though, Patrick: just why can't these be included here? Unlike Wacky Packages X-Packs, Lost Wackys Series 3 and Series 4 and Wacky Pack Variations Series 1-4, the Bonus Pack, and Series 5-6 (which, like these, are already out there), these don't seem, to me, to be offensive (like the first one) or bordering on artists' copyright infringement (like the first two of the other nine). These look like, to me, someone doing an original idea for a Wacky series that Topps themselves would never have done in a million years. It's even been called a labor of love on Greg Grant's web site.

I take it that since Matt Stock is partially involved with these series (the other part is Greg), no one wants anything to do with them. I also take it that Matt doesn't have many friends here, but always remember: Greg's web site was very important not only for me, but probably for a lot of other newbies, as an introduction to the world of Wackys. Can't we just let bygones be bygones and agree to disagree here? I'd like to see peace and harmony around here rather than have this ongoing feud involving Greg and Matt go on forever with no end in sight.

Finally, as promised, the candy products and everything connected with them! These are the ones whose company is shown on the wrapper. All other candy products not mentioned here don't have this feature. Again, Patrick, please put these at the beginning of each product whenever you can:

Hershey's: 296, 785, 857, 964, 1048, 1057, 1331, 1512, 2732, 2734, 2764 & 2835

Nestle: 946, 1173, 1261, 1332, 1662, 1683, 1684, 1840, 1862, 1866, 1874, 2466, 2776, 2832, 2835, 2836 & 4329

Peter Paul: 236, 774, 1347, 1540, 2633 & 2800

Wonka: 1777 & 2777

Betty Crocker: 688 & 1801

Nabisco: 283 & 303

Just Born: 799 & 4299.

I know that you're still busy with all of the other a's and c's, so please take your time on this one, too. Again, if I missed anything, please let me know and I'll add it in as well.

Well, that's all three of the product types done at last!

one of the coolest items from the Philly show that I left with, is one that I received from Fred Wheaton - a sketch card of my namesake.

I just noticed that I forgot one Nestle listing. It's in 1862. Could you please include it?

UPDATE: I just saw that it was included. Thanks again!

Good work so far, Patrick (except for the one that I missed-my fault! (UPDATE: Thanks for including it!))!

Only the cereal products and all of the rest of them to go and it's done! (at least for now)
