What is the most-parodied Wacky?
« on: October 29, 2018, 02:43:15 PM »
After much consideration, I've come to a possible conclusion that Kit Kat just may be the most-parodied Wacky. Here's what I've found (minus the Kill Kat figures, which are a completely different animal altogether):

*Kick Kat (Irish Series (1985)/50th Anniversary (Best of the '80s) (2017)))
*Kid Kud (1985 Series)
*Zit Kat (ANS1 (2004))
*Kiss Kat (ANS7 (2010))
*Hit Kat (2015 S1)
*It Kat (Halloween Postcards 2013)
*Krypt Kat (Halloween Pack 'O Fun 2016)

That's a total of seven-more than I've ever seen for any product!

Am I right, or can anyone else find a product that's been done more times than this one?

I gotta believe Dunkin Donuts is right up there with it, especially if you include the bag of ground coffee (Bumpkin Dimwits) and the styrofoam cup of coffee (Dumpiní Donuts).  The donuts themselves have to have been spoofed at least 5 or 6 times.   Iíd say a handful of others probably come close, especially from repeat parodies in the ANS era.

Iíve always wanted to take the dozen or so products that have been repeat-spoofed the most times and place all the parodies in a line for each product, to see how they compare side-by-side.  The Dunkin Donuts parodies have always been detailed and well-rendered, so that would be a visual treat for sure.

Here's a list of those Wackys:

*Shrunken Donuts (13th Series (1975))
*Drunken Donuts (1991 Series)
*Dukin' Donuts (ANS6 (2007)/50th Anniversary (Best of the '00s (2017)))
*Bumpkin Dimwits Coffee (ANS7 (2010))
*Punkin' Donuts (ANS8 (2011))
*Dumpin' Donuts Coffee (ANS8 (2011))
*Dungeon Donuts (ANS10 (2013)
*Dugout Donuts (2015 S1 (Wacky Billboard))
*Dorkin' Donuts (2015 giveaway)

So far, Dunkin' Donuts is the winner with nine! Are there any challengers able to beat this?

Neil has a point, Mike.  There has to be a ton of Wacky Package parodies beginning with "Wormy Packages" and ending, I believe, with "Fracky Packages."

Not official, but i did Fester Flakes for Halloween!!

Did Kellogg's actually release a Frosted Flakes Pumpkin Spice this Halloween? I think that I may have seen it, but I'm not sure. And if they did, can someone post a picture of the box?

I missed out on Trader Joe's Pumpkin Joe's O's cereal this year  :'(   Very bummed - I usually buy several boxes to last me through the year, but they sold out really fast this time.

Thanks, Patrick! For a minute there, I thought that I was imagining things!

Was it only at Target, though? I thought that I saw it at Publix.

And Scheres, what is your non-Topps Wacky of this? Is it a postcard, a sketch card, or what? I ask this because I'm going to add it to the Frosted Flakes list. I take it that it was done this year, too.

If you're going to add "Fester Flakes," you might as well as add the following to a Barnum's list:



Note: This is the new packaging in which the animals are free to roam on a drunken, celebratory binge.
