I thought that Wacky Packages were the funniest thing I've seen on the market, next to Mad Magazine, which used to do something similar (and still do sometimes), and I guess also to the irritation of the companies being satirized. My favorites were "Nutlee's Quit", and "Kooloff's Snatch-A-Pak". My message to those corporate giants: Come on now! Companies have been satirized for over 50+ years, and will continue to be so in some sort of medium. Can't ya'll take a joke? :D
On a side note, before Wacky Packages, Topps also came out with "Wacky Record Labels", which were essentially parodies of popular phonograph record labels covering the top 40 hits of that time. For those born after 1982, phonograph records were the music medium long before the advent of CDs, nowadays referred to as vinyl.

Some of my fondest memories in life were collecting Wacky Packs. I remember being so excited, each time I'd buy new packs. This website is full of nastalgia. What a trip!!!

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.

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!
