Wacky Packages
1st UK Series 1974


    Picture Album
  • Timeline: This is the first (of two) vintage series released in the UK. It is believed this series came out in 1974
    • It could not have come out earlier than October of 1974 since it contains 9th series titles.
  • Packs: Packs were blue, with two stickers, a checklist and a piece of gum.
  • The Checklists/Puzzle: There are nine different checklists backs, which come together to form a Gadzooka puzzle
  • The Box: The box is orange with blue packs.
  • The Titles: This is a mix of titles that were released in the U.S. from series 1 - 9.
    • Titles from the 1st through 6th series can be distinguished from their U.S. counterparts by the copyright.
    • Titles from the 7th through 9th series have exactly the same copyrights as their U.S. counterparts.
      • However about half of these can be distinguished by their die-cut shape (see the "compare" links in the checkist below).
  • The Sticker Backs: All stickers in this series have tan backs.
