OS and Topps-related characters in ANS Wackys
« on: January 02, 2018, 06:55:14 PM »
I just found some OS and Topps-related characters in some ANS Wackys. Here's what I've got so far:

*ANS2:   9 (Jailette Strike3)   13 (Thefty Crime Sak)   16 (Slobway)   27 (Alberto's BO5)   34 (Punchables Cracker Smackers)   B7 (Snout)

*ANS3:   B2 (Barfie MyScream)   B6: (Nasty Messquik)   F6 (Alive (this one has two Ugly Stickers characters in it instead of OS Wacky characters))

*ANS4:   47 (Tacky Packages All-Goo Series)   B1 (Stella Dork'o Kookies-Swiss Fools)

*ANS5:   50 (Quacker State Beak Performance)   51 (Haunt's Terrifying Ketchup)

*ANS6:   39 (Shake 'n Break)

*ANS8:   Wacky Packages Go to the Movies 8 of 8 (Diary of a Wacky Kid)

*ANS9:   21 (Motion Spray)

*ANS11:   25 (Horderlands 2: Much Stuff)   B13 (Grape-Nuts + Bolts)  Wacky Billboard 2 (Five Guts; the same character as the one from Slobway (ANS2 16) - probably the only repeated character)

*2014 S1:  27 (Poop-Tarts)   B9 (Unkist Onion Soda)

*2015 S1:  13 (Veino Max Gel)   51 (Angry Jack Aggravated Bittermilk Pain-Cake Mix)

*Postcards S1:  1 (Dracky Packages)   3 (Weaky Packages)

*OLDS3:  30 (Meow Mess)

*Network Spews (print-on-demand):  59 (Where's Richard? (this one has 10 OS Wacky characters, five ANS Wacky characters and one Wacky Packages Postcards character - probably an all-time record number up to this point))

*Trumpocracy: The First 100 Days (print-on-demand):  28 (Fracky Packages)

Now, can anyone find anything that I've missed or anything that came out after ANS9?

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.

we had a good list of these going on Greg's old forum back in the day. think that's all lost now.

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

I just found another one and added it to the list: Horderlands 2: Much Stuff (25) from ANS11.

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?

Or a great pair of Double Artist sketch cards.

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

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

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

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

Does anyone else know about any other ANS Wackys after ANS9 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.

You guessed it - another one, this time a print on demand one from Network Spews - Where's Richard?! Joe Grossberg (Joe G.) pointed this one out.

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 two 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?
