Never really got this one.  The characters are well rendered, but if it is for "nuts" why is there someone in what looks like a military uniform force feeding the cereal into the other guy?  And, what's with the Cap'n Crud type pirate hat?  Finally, there is something odd about the way the art wraps around the box - can't really see a bend, and it looks like they just drew a line through it.

I always thought the guard could have been Mr. Mean's brother!
Still looking for Series 17

Onto the 12 series!

First on the checklist is Toad vs. Tide, along with the original Tied parody. The 1970s packaging design is very close in design to the 1960s with the exception of the brighter orange and squared sans-serif title font.

Gags are good and mesh together, but get confusing between the frogs vs. toads.  The toad/frog is a good character.

I like this Wacky - it is silly, as Wackys should be.  The box is instantly recognizable, there's a well painted character, and the gag and taglines are good and go well together.

The frog vs. toad is a disconnect.  For me, Tied wins, hands down.

I agree. The parody uses the "toad" or "frog" references too much. Maybe get rid of the word "frog" and replace with words like amphibian, croak or ribbit
