Interesting that two temporary cereal brands were chosen, driven by the ‘latest craze’ phenomenon, reminiscent of ‘91 Gross Blisters and a cereal marketing gimmick still in use today.

I will also be offering the same raffle that's done for the last bunch of series. If you purchase three or more of the master set and show me a receipt I will enter you into a raffle (after the 7 day sale is done) for original art!

Does this series contain any politics or ANS/GPK type potty humor? That seems to have crept into all the series lately.

I am not interested in all that is offered in the $150 Master Set.  If anyone is interested in selling me the 30 card tan set, LMK....  I am happy with that...   8)

I'll have an extra set for you, if you'd like.

About the Loonies card: Is that a character from a previous Wacky Packages sticker original on it?

I don’t believe so.  I’ve never seen the film, but I know there is a character very closely resembling that on the Wacky.  The only embellishment I see is the propeller beanie.  Now if you’re asking whether a previous Wacky character inspired that, that’s anyone’s guess.  I would say the propeller beanie is too common a prop to read much into it.

The funny thing is, I had two wacky ideas for Orange Julius at the same time. My other rough was "Orange Curious", with a startled guy looking quizzically at this weird creature climbing out of his cup. They both were good gags, but I'm glad Dave went with Furious!

Great concept and execution!  Perhaps the orange might have been even more furious if the straw was protruding from its eye socket?

Hmmmm... I'm not sure if this is reflective of 1980's Orange Julius packaging.  This appears like the 1990's redesign to me, but I'm not certain on it, and could be wrong.  Would love to see your reference for this one.  [Edit:  Just did some digging, and it's looking even more evident that this is a 1990's, possibly early 2000's design.  For what it's worth. ]

For the 90s redesign it looks like they made the logo italicized. The straight up lettering was the 80s. Also looks like the 90s got more "festive" The little dots were changed to confetti like triangles and are not arranged perfectly and they put one larger
 fruit on the cup (though maybe the other is on the other side, not sure).

Did a deep dive and can confirm my suspicions.  Here's the accurate skinny:

The actual 1980's design which was still in use into the early 1990's can be seen here in two ads from 1989 and 1991.  The version you appear to have referenced to base this Old School design on was introduced no earlier than 1993, so that design came out sometime in 1994-1996, as it was definitely in use by 1996, as shown on the third attachment.
