The Adventures Continue

 I remember watching Looney Tunes as a kid. It was part of the what I grew up on along with Sesame Street and Polka Dot Door (and also a special shout out for anyone who remembers Today's Special).

Somehow or other, I never did hear about this 1990 set, nor see any of it in hand until, well, today.

The cards are double sided, and apparently, if you get a whole set, and put them in the proper ordering in pages, they read like a comic strip, which is pretty darn cool.

Other than my not being able to scan a card right side up, I can see how that would work with the cards above.

Not sure if I should really consider this a baseball card set...but with it happening to be about baseball, can see why. I'll count it as non-baseball though. I don't think I would have cared enough as a kid to collect them - I liked the cartoons, but that's about it.

A bit surprised that this is actually almost 300 cards in all as a set - but then again, the more cards, the more for kids to collect (and buy).

I will say, the cards do picture the exact style of the cartoons, so great representation there.

As a kid, I was a fan of Bugs and Porky Pig, but as I got older, I connected more with Daffy and Yosemite Sam....not sure what that says about me.

  1. I remember when these originally came out. Wasn't really into them back then... but I started building the sets w/holograms a few years ago. I'm down to needing only seven holograms to finish off all four series.

    P.S. I grew up on Sesame Street and Looney Tunes too. Never heard of Polka Dot Door though.
