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.

I have gags already written for all three. Just need Topps to say the word...

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).

Thought of two more toy products for a future OLDS: Zillion Bubbles and Monster Bubbles.

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.

Any relation to Martin the Martian?  8)

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.
