They should bring back the name Wacky Ads when doing sets like these since they are ads not packages. Wacky Ads, Wacky Posters and Wacky Packages. That should cover these things.

Got real names for all save one. What is The Overkill? I ask this because this set might be one for the Master Spreadsheet.

How about Travesty Packages. That's the feeling I get when I look at that set.

I've been buying a lot of the recent "Wacky" offerings to demonstrate to Topps that there is a demand and market for new Wackys.  Unfortunately, they seem to be veering further and further away from what I consider to be a Wacky Package. 

I have high hopes for the upcoming Old School set, but it looks like I'm done with the 24 hour/weekly offerings.

If you liked Old School 1-5 you will like this set (maybe more). The new WP set we are starting today and that should also be very cool (REAL products).

These 24 hours things should do real products using whatever entertainment thing they are spoofing. Problem solved.

I did the concept for Young Shell-don, but not sure who got the painting, or
how it came out.  I'm guessing JungHwa?    (She did my other one, Will & Grapes.)

When you say you "did the concept," what exactly does that mean?  You had the idea for the title and maybe the gag line and the sketch of the character, but then someone else did the production?

I submitted the concept, along with many other ideas, and sketched it out using my all-thumbs computer skills, with text, gag lines and characters.  Topps was great to approve those two ideas but of course they have the right to change things around however they see fit.

will & grapes stayed the same except I had them all in a Supermarket produce section and maybe that was too "busy," not sure and everything ended up on a white canvas instead.

A shout out to Patrick during this slow time for Wackies. There are number of people on this board who have a set of Topps On-Demand Wackies solely because Patrick stepped up and banded us together to obtain these cards at bulk prices. He probably spent over 100 hours on this project. Meticulously tracking Paypal Payments from us all, ordering cards,  tracking their deliveries to him, and rapidly shipping them out to us with notification of when we could expect our
special deliveries. These efforts made it possible for many of us to collect these cards; even though their single card prices put them out of our reach. Patrick's labor of love will have lasting impact. The hobby would not be the same without him. Anyone who participated in the Bulk-Buyers Club owes Patrick a debt of gratitude.
Many thanks to Patrick for going above and beyond for the sake of making these cards available to us a prices we could afford.  :great: :great: :great: :great:

Regards,  Andrew

thanks Andrew!
It took some work, but for the most part, it was a rather enjoyable experience - with the bonus being it was a great way meet a lot of forum members!

WTF is this from Topps?  Horsin' Around with Bojack Horseman.  It must be aimed far below my age group (and intelligence level).

https://www.topps.com/ondemand/ondemand-available-one-week-only/2017-topps-on-demand-set-7-bojack-horseman.html?utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=9/18%20Topps%20NOW%E2%84%A2&utm_term=All%20Sports%20and%20Auction

I love the quote "Even though it takes place in Chicago, it is actually filmed in Los Angeles, California!" As if that isn't the case for practically every show and movie in the first place. Who can pretend to say that half of the shows on television aren't recorded in front of green screens?

Salem's Lot was recorded in Cal. even though it takes place in Maine, and Wally World isn't even in the same place... What makes it any different to point out on a stupid horse show?

Anyone else watching the television show THE ORVILLE on Fox? Many of the ship interiors appear to be green screen rather than constructed sets.

That's part of the joke. Also, it's not "filmed" as it's an animated show (but in the reality of the show, BoJack Horseman is a real live horse man, and Horsin' Around was filmed). I've watched a few episodes and it's pretty funny, my nephews really like it.

I watched the first episode and liked it. I didn't notice the green screening, but I bet you're right.

Well, it's a 'lost' test set from back in the 90's, from back in the olden, dark days, pre-internet, when nobody knew nothin'!!  ;D

Looks like the interior is almost entirely physical sets.
I had read elsewhere that the ship is a real model as well, and not the usual cgi you see everywhere else these days
