Mabel drew a small boy called Mischief and children in the 1950s could join his club and get a free badge. In 1954 the company produced a set of cards titled Mischief Goes to Mars in which the fictional boy and his sister Marie accompany their uncle Jet Wright, a rocket ship pilot, on a trip to Mars, but not before stocking up with several cartons of Wright’s biscuits! The Mars they land on is full of helicopter like aircraft and friendly martians who are used to contact with Earth. After exploring this planet they return home with Mischief vowing to become a rocket pilot like his uncle. The story is explained on the numbered backs which has the name on the sides but not at the bottom. Two similar series were also produced, the only difference being that one has “Join the Mischief Club’ at the base and the other has “Issued by Wright’s Biscuits Ltd’ at the base. see website for availability A charming little set with Thunderbird style rockets. The cards are size 68 x 36mm.
