I remember collecting these cards back when I was 12. I had up to series 3 I think. When I moved out, my mother "cleaned out" my closet. Needless to say she cleaned out my collection too @#$&^!. Anyway, I found this website and have really enjoyed viewing the cards I once had and laughing over and over again. Great site and thanks for it!

Like most, i have fond memories of wacky packages. Seeing the thumbnails of the 4th series brought back a flood of memories from when i was 9 years old. Collecting them was all the rage.

I remember these stickers all to well when I was growing up in Centerville,Oh in the 70's. I remember at the time I loved the the 1st to 3rd series. My favorite was Dopey Whip, Liptorn Lava soup, and others from the first though third series. I had all of the second, third, and part of the first series.

Oh man why did I stick those things to my garage wall!!! I can remember buying the packages at Ben Franklin In my home town of Grayslake Illinois. I really haven't laughed this hard in a long time! Thank you for the memories.

Man, what a memory jog! As a kid, I collected all sorts of cards...baseball, football, Garbage Pail Kids...what a TRIP to see a site devoted to Wacky Packages! I remember the old grocery store where I first bought a pack of these...they even made my mom laugh! It's sad that probably the only way I could get these now would be on Ebay, since the copyright-lawyers-gone-wild attitude is so prevalent now, that these sort of things may never get made again. Thank you for such a cool site!!!

Just for the fun of it, I typed in "wacky packages" in the "search" column and sure enough, there's alot of devoted fans out there that still have these "off-the-wall" sticker collections from the beginning...WOW. I wish I still had all of mine from '71 to '75 that somehow found themselves thrown away with other stuff via my parents. Oh!!! was I severly p!ssed when I found out. I had about a 100 stickercards of the 1st to the 5th series in great condition. I eventually forgave my parents for my rant about the stickers. ~25 yrs later, here I am. Thank you for this site to rehash old memories. I now have voluntary cramps in my legs from kicking myself in the butt...IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT!

I was at a friend's house yesterday and his daughter introduced me to some foul flavored jelly beans inspired by Harry Potter books. For some reason, it made me think about something I was obsessed with in the early 70s as a child: Wacky Packages. I hadn't thought about these things for 25 years. I loved Wacky Packages. Today, I found this site and I am trully enjoying some nostaglia. Wacky Packages were great with the combination of the humor and art. They appealed to my warped sense of humor. Thanks for the site and the trip down memory lane. The pleasure those stickers gave me in my youth is unmeasurable (and I never even attached them to anything unless I had an extra). I wish I still had my collection.
