Primrose Films, TV, Sci Fi & Comic Art Krazy Kreatures from Outer Space (paper thin card) 1972 Krazy Kreatures from Outer Space (paper thin card) 1972 50 - These cards provide an astronaut’s guide to made up aliens that could live in space, which are pictured in colour on the front and described on the numbered card backs. These include the Mars-Rat which we are told lives in burrows on the planet Phobos and is vegetarian and the Klopan which we are told live in the 6th galaxy, are ten feet tall and difficult to befriend as they mistrust Earthmen. This set was also produced in a thick card and thin version. Someone with a very vivid imagination has obviously been let loose on this set, but it is fun and well done with cards size 63 x 34mm.

Primrose Football Football Funnies 1974 Football Funnies 1974 25 - Printed on paper this colourful set features humorous cartoons of football incidents from history, but don’t let this put you off as the set is actually very educational, did you know for instance that a form of football was played by the Chinese until AD 25 on the Emperor’s birthday? This is just one of many fascinating facts explained on the card backs which cover such things as the origins of Australian football, football as played by the Greeks and Romans, the first British match in Derbyshire, the highest score recorded (when Arbroath beat Bon Accord 36 – 0), the most bookings in a match (all 22 players in a local cup match in 1969), longest game and even the biggest goalkeeper. Incidentally that last record belongs to English International Willie J Foulke 1874-1916 who was over 6ft tall and weighed 22 stone 3lbs – he definitely made a good goal blocker. This is an interesting little set, size 64 x 34mm.

Primrose Films, TV, Sci Fi & Comic Art Andy Pandy 1960 Andy Pandy 1960 50 - This set, originally issued with packets of sweets, is based on popular children’s favourite Andy Pandy. The programme was shown as part of the ‘Watch With Mother’ programme on the BBC and featured the adventures of a puppet called Andy Pandy and his friends a teddy bear called Teddy and rag doll called Looby Lou who all lived in a large picnic hamper. The original 26 episodes were continuously repeated and in the 1970s 13 new episodes were added. This set pictures pastel cartoon drawings of the friends as they play and look at the world around them. For instance they pick apples, fly a kite, find a crab on the seashore and play leap frog. The fronts contain a caption of the action at the bottom and the backs contain details of the company and an album that could be ordered for the price of “only 9d and one box top”. The simple charm and naivety made this an enduring classic and it was rebooted for a modern audience in 2001 with the puppets replaced by stop-motion filming. Pure nostalgia. Cards size 67 x 34mm

Primrose Films, TV, Sci Fi & Comic Art Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (paper thin card) 1969 Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (paper thin card) 1969 50 - This set pictures scenes from the 1968 musical fantasy film loosely based on a novel by Ian Fleming. It starred Dick Van Dyke as Caractacus Potts an eccentric inventor who is persuaded by his children and father to rescue and restore an old racing car. Confectionery heiress Truly Scrumptious, played by Sally Ann Howes, also becomes involved and after they all go on a picnic in the car they become stranded and Caractacus tells the story of a wicked Baron who lives in a foreign land who wants to steal the car. Suddenly they find themselves caught up in the adventure and discover that the car, which they have nicknamed Chitty Chitty Bang Bang owing to the noise it makes, can float and fly. The Baron captures Grandpa and the rest set off in pursuit to a county where the Baron dominates the people and children are banned. The Baron and his wife employ and evil child-catcher to round up any children including the Potts children. Eventually Caractacus and Truly capture the Baron by infiltrating the castle as life-sized dolls, freeing the children and Grandpa before returning home in their car. This was a popular film with memorable music, although the child-catcher gave many children nightmares. This set was also produced on a thick card (see website for availability) and both are size 64 x 34mm.
