While online sometime back I went to Google.com and entered Wacky Packages and came up with several sites referring to them. It brought back childhood memories for me when I was between 9-10-11-12 years of age. I go online to look at them especially the Original Series, 1st-16th between 1973-1976-77. I enjoy this site immensely.

I'M PRETTY MUCH NEW TO THE WHOLE WACKY PACK DEAL SINCE GARBAGE PAIL KIDS ARE MORE MY GENERATION (THE 1980'S) BUT I AM SERIOUSLY BEING WON OVER BY THESE CRAZY STICKERS! I THINK IT'S ESSENTIAL TO MAKE FUN OF CAPITALISM'S BIGGEST GRIP ON NORTH AMERICA - CONSUMER PRODUCTS!!!

Wow, it's great to see that Wacky Packages haven't been forgotten... Along with Mad magazine, W.P. helped shape my sense of humor and my love of art, two things which have had lasting benefits in my life. Like most Gen-X types, I have fond memories of these brilliant little pop culture satires... and they are still funny as hell to me!
Thanks for the great diversion; I'm sending the link to this site in all of my e-mails this week.

When I was seven I stuck my wacky packages all over my bookcase. They usually made me laugh. They people who created knew that kids were much smarter than most people expected.
The gum was pretty intense. It was tough like jerky. I'd always felt like I accomplished something when chewing.

I'm 40 years old and to this day I cannot walk down the pasta aisle at the supermarket without thinking of "Runtony". I tried to explain this to my 12 year old but it really was one of those "You had to be there stories".
I assumed that these were long gone- nothing but a memory to bore my child with. Then I came across this wonderful site and had quite a rush of nostalgia. I had to resist the temptation to bid like crazy on ebay and further inflating the price of these fun collectables.
Thanks for this great site.

I really liked them as a kid and mentioned to my wife they should rerelease them as a new series.a couple months later at KB-TOYS i stumbled on them and went on a buying frenzie to get the entire set
series 1/2004.I found more at Wal-Mart and bought all i could find,my 18 year old fell on the floor over "struggle" and my 11 year old now collects them with me.
glad they released series 2 and hope they continue to add new.
