Interesting observations!  I'll keep my eyes open for more recent tie-in parodies.

Mentioned this before on the "Sleuthing and Forensics" thread.  Don't know if it would count or not, 1) being it's such a small detail, and 2) it's not ANS.

OS3 Meow Mess

The "6-Up" bottle cap among the kitty refuse.



Also Neil Camera's "Fracky Packages" from the "Trumpocracy: The First 100 Days" set.

Don't know if Wackys appearing on subsequent Wackys counts here, but ANS Thefty and Tacky Packages come to mind right away.  Also the Dracky Packages postcard.

I remember this being more prevalent in the early ANS series, probably petered out as more new artists got involved in the later series.  Funnily enough, I can only think of the repeated character in a few of the titles mentioned.  It's probably been 5 years or more since I've even looked at the first half-dozen or so sets.

Thefty's been added, thanks. And, after some thought, I've put in the other two, also, even though they're not ANS. Finally, after some more thought, the third one's been put in too, even though it's basically one of those POD Wackys that not many people here seem to really like.

Fred does have all the ANS2 stuff captured on his site though

I'm not sure if this one counts, or not, but I remember having a feeling of deja vu when I first saw the "Red Veins" art. The character's arm and shirt sleeve almost match up perfectly to the reversed Ghoul Humor's character's arm.

That's a good one, considering that the two characters are each facing in a different direction, the first (Ghoul Humor) to the right and the second (Red Veins) to the left. It doesn't count for this list, IMO, but it's very clever, indeed. I wonder if the artist who did Red Veins knew about this when he did it?

I'm sure Strephon was very aware of the Ghoul Humor character. Wouldn't surprise me if he did that on purpose.

I just found seven modern Wackys that incorporate other ANS characters (so I don't know if they'd count here):

*ANS2:  #34 (Punchables Cracker Smackers)

*ANS10:  #39 (Klepto-Bismol (second version)),

*ANS11:  #29 (The Game of Loaf (this one has two characters))

*2014 S1:  Bonus Sticker B8 (Notre-Grain)

*2015 S1:  #10 (Krust Macaroni and Sneese).

*Wacky Packages All New Monthly Series 2021:  June 2021  #19 (Mtn Don't; the same character as the one in ANS11: #29 (The Game of Loaf) - the second of two repeated characters up to this point (for the first one, see Reply #1 above))   October 2021  #17 (Frosted Stakes)

*Wacky Packages All New Series 2023:   #16: Wolf Man Chili

Does anyone else know about any other modern Wackys that fit into this category?

For those with microscopic vision, you might find one of the Hurts Tomato characters lurking on the label of "Motion Spray" from ANS8.

Whichever one it is, it's in the list now!

UPDATE: Say, did anyone else notice that the guy's middle finger in in his left nostril? I just noticed that now.
Also, it's not just that the Burpsi-Cola guy has hair on his head - his nose is different from the original's, too.

I've only got the stickers up to ANS8, Rob. And I think that I've got a camera on my computer, but I don't know how to use it.

Can anyone help me out with this one and include pictures of all the Wackys mentioned here on this list so that Rob can see all of them? I also saw that Mark (NationalSpittoon) asked for pictures also.

We've already got three of them (Horderlands 2: Much Stuff, Motion Spray and Poop-Tarts) so they don't need to be done.

UPDATE: Correction: the first two pictures are gone. Can someone please put them back?

I just found out that two of the four Kooky Kards from 2019 have OS characters. Even though they're not true Wackys, they're the same thing in spirit, so I put them in as well.

Can anyone show me photos of Rodeo Flyer Wagon and Curst so I can see if these two have to be included as well?

Just found another one: Boozooka from Halloween Postcards 2010.

The bubble gum bubble-blowing boy from Gadzooka is on there and he looks scared!

I have to admit I'm surprised I didn't see this one sooner - and I have the entire run of the Halloween Postcards line!
