My sister and I loved the figurines and magnets way back when.

Nice!  As crazy as I was for sugared cereal back in the day, I have faint recollection of Freakies.  I suppose, for whatever reason, my mom didn't buy that one much, if at all.  But I suspect I would have been very fond it it had she picked it up on occasion.

There were also two variants of it named Fruity Freakies and Cocoa Freakies.

I still have my Freakies figurines in the envelope from the mail in offer.  I also used to have all of the magnets, but they've disappeared over the years.

There is just something really cool about the characters and all the colors!

Kind of like the Chumps Wacky!

Great displays. I LOVE the Freakies. I was corresponding with Jackie End; the creator of the Freakies prior to her passing in 2012. I sent her a pic of the Flunkies OS Sticker and she said she was sad to see it as she was very protective of the image of the Freakies and she did not want to see them failing in school. I thought she would be happy about the parody.  I regretted showing Flunkies to her.

My question is: Which Freakie do you talk to? My favorite is Hamhose.

Richard, one question: in the cards on the left, is there both a name card and a saying card for each one of the seven Freakies? If so, then you're missing quite a few cards here.

I think there are 22 patches. I had them all at one time. The are 8 with the Freakies Logos and some of the sayings ones have more than one saying for a character.  Great looking displays!!

Looking to post some pics of my Freakies collection. Can someone provide some guidance on how to post pics here? I was able to in the past but no longer.

Several pointers in this thread.

For me, I always manually upload to postimages.org and then copy/paste the ‘thumbnail for forums’ link

Then, since Richard has 10 patches, he's missing at least 12.

Does anyone here own a copy of the fan made Freakies Tree Display? I own one. They were produced in low numbers around 12 years ago and routinely sold for $150. I was able to buy one from the guy who made them shortly before he stopped selling them due to a cease and desist order he received from the Freakies Company. That was around 10 years ago when Jackie End ; the creator of the Freakies was still alive. I can not post pics here; but the tree is made of high impact resin like material, is painted, is 3d, and has room for all seven Freakies to be displayed on it replicating the classic picture of the tree on the cereal box. It is about 12"  high and 12" wide. Very cool item.
