I never heard of Yummy Mummy but I have now:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3eFEnnbbEAQ" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3eFEnnbbEAQ</a>

That was very cool.  No mention of Fruit Brute there though.  Would be cool to see parodies for the other three monster cereals.

"Franken Berry was very popular when first introduced possibly because the initial batches of the cereal used a dye that didn't break down in the body, causing many children's feces to be bright pink, a symptom sometimes referred to as 'Frankenberry Stool.'" -Wikipedia.
This is considered something that may have led to its popularity?
I'll throw out another theory. Asparagus was also very popular when it was introduced possibly because the aroma doesn't break down in the body, causing people's urine to be asparagus-scented, sometimes referred to as "asparagus wee wee."

You are all correct there Brad! LOL!!! They're all legally prescribed, I'm honestly in absoloute terrible pain 24/7 or I would not take the pain meds, the medication I take to keep my (New) liver from "rejecting" really has no side effects. ???

Why do you think the Muller got a 5?  Looks great in that scan.

there is some gum residue on the front that got blown out by the scan, otherwise, it's a beauty.

It looks better than a 5 to me! I have a "Band-Ache" that has a "small" crease otherwise it's really nice and they gave it a 4! :-[

I suspect the corners may have contributed to the 5, also. But it still looks quite nice.

Not to rain on any parade here, but this shows me how inconsistent PSA can be. Why is that Muller's a 5 (regardless of stain/corners), but that rather yellowed Cover Ghoul next to it a 9? No comprehende. I would have swapped their grades, if I worked at PSA.

PSA has consistently ignored the tanning issue on wackys. I've always maintained that any defect that is specific to stickers is likely to be mishandled by PSA, while any defect that also occurs with sports cards will likely be handled properly.

Yeah, for sure the toning of cover ghoul is there. It is very inconsistent from what I see with the cards I have. If the card is priced right & I am happy with how it looks for the price I buy it. I am not chasing the grades, I am as happy with my 5's as I am with 7's & 9's.

Finally got me a Canadian album. It's got most of the stickers in it. Some collectors would consider this a negative. Horse hockey!! It's BETTER with the stickers. Since others disagree, I was able to get this very rare item for $8 on ebay!

Nice score!  I picked up one of these as part of a collection of the OPC Hockey and OPC Basebal sticker albums years ago for next to nothing because it was a sports auction that didn't mention wackys and a sports collector friend of mine spotted it for me.  Mine also has a bunch of stickers in it.  I rarely see these available.  I also have the OPC display box for these which I believe is really rare too.

I got mine at a "Yard sale" for a quarter! We had a neighbor w/kids who lived in (Canada) part of the year! I have an almost "Full Box" of (Albums) but they're "Topps"

I got the full album box too. The OPC box is a wee bit tougher to find.
