I'm a big fan of these bad boys:

My timeline is missing an interim transition box from 1974 that I have since added to my collection.  Never went back to add it though.

Got two Topps titles in this (Don't look!)
I suggested a Topps trading card product somewhere in this forum that could maybe be done next time around: Charlie's Angels Series 1. I even had a good Wacky name for it: Harry's Devils Series 666.

Another:

There was another Peanuts product in the 1970s that could be a possible Wacky for the next OLDS: the Snoopy Brusha-Brusha Toothbrush.

One thing that I'd like to ask: can we please get Urban-American Spaghetto-Os finally published, if not next time, then soon? It's the only finished OLDS Wacky that hasn't been released and IMO, that is just wrong on so many levels.

I just thought of some more cereals that are ripe for parodying-Quangaroos, Baron von Redberry and Sir Grapefellow.

They won't use this one because they (inaccurately) think it's somehow racist.

Do you have anything for these two cereals: Klondike Pete's Crunchy Nuggets and Crazy Cow?

Just thought of two more: Pop-Ice (since Otter Pops and Fla-Vor-Ice have already been done) and Icee (since 7-Eleven Slurpee and Slush Puppie have already been done).

I just saw what it looks like, and if that's racist, then I'm Frank Sinatra back from the dead-and I'm not.

I just thought of a toy that was probably 1970s that might be good for OLDS: Marvel the Mustang.

Didn't even know it was 1960s, thanks (and it's Marvin, btw-just thought you'd like to know). However, I just thought of three other toys for OLDS, two of which are very similar to Marvel-Inchworm and Sherlock-and one that's connected to Sherlock-Digger.

What about all the products produced by Wham-O in the 1960s (and 1970s?).  I haven't kept track of whether any of those, other than Super Elastic Bubble Plastic in OLDS 6, have been spoofed in Wackies.  Since the die-cuts were issued in 1967, I think the time frame would be appropriate, although the many Wacky Forum members who came of age in the 1970s or later might not be all that familiar with them:

Superball, Slip N Slide, Water Wiggle, Monster Magnet, Silly String, Super Stuff, Air Blaster, and of course, Frisbee(!), etc.

Incidentally, one of my Pasadena, CA elementary school classmates was Chuck Knerr, son of Richard Knerr, co-founder of the company.

Dave hit the WHam-O frisbee in an earlier Old School series. 

There's a great Wham-O book that was published about a decade ago that I consulted on for the Wham-O Magic Window section of, it's outstanding, with tons of photos and great stories.  A perfect reference.

My set arrived today and, while I'm too busy to give a full evaluation, I think Dave hit it out of the park again in terms of the base set.  So many classic products that Dave captures the spirit of the original 70's Wackys.  Truly well done!  Sadly, I have almost the opposite opinion in terms of how Topps sold these (no packs or boxes or checklist; backs that I couldn't care less about; a price point that is pretty high, particularly with a weak, at least what I got, collection of sketches).  I'm not disappointed I bought the set as the base is so stellar.  But, if I did it over, I'd buy the base set on ebay and be done with it.  I just hope Topps doesn't take the wrong message from this series.  I think it's safe to say a quality base set will sell very well.  Extras should be just that; something for which interested collectors can pay more to acquire.  I'd happily trade all my non-base stuff for an extra base set.  In fact, if anyone wants to do that, please PM me.

Sorry about the negative rant on everything but the base set.  The base is fabulous and really hits the mark exceptionally well.  Congrats on your consistently excellent Wackys, Dave!

My sets are scheduled to arrive today.  Hoping to get most of the pencils and some cool sketches out of my two sets.  I will post my trade/ need list tonight and pics of my sketches. I feel like I am one of the last people to receive cards.  At least they will come before Christmas. I was looking at my empty OS boxes for sets 1 - 5. It's sad that part will not continue. I think someone should do a run of custom Puzzle Cards to go with this set. What title do we think they should use?
How about Beast-nut?

In the Original Series and Old School traditions of using a Topps product, the puzzle should be either Ugh! Stickers or Hacky Package Tattoos.  I would have preferred the tattoos, because it is a Wacky of a Wacky product, but Ugh! is a better size for a puzzle.

It also is unfortunate that the original Wacky Tattoos package was missing the title on the "Weakies" box - looked wrong then, and it makes the Old School 6 wacky look unfinished, especially if you don't know that's what it looked like for real.

Yes, hopefully this can be done!   Beast-nut would get my vote.  Homage to the Big Baddy puzzle!

Iím with Pat, the puzzle can only be a Topps product, and would need to be Ugh!
