The Wacky Warehouse

OK, big confession time: I was, and still am, TOTALLY obsessed by the Wacky Warehouse.

Yes, the Kool-Aid Wacky Warehouse. It all started when my Grandmommie bought me “Adventures of Kool-Aid Man” issue 4 – the grand opening of the Wacky Warehouse and Scorch (KAM’s arch enemy)’s attempts to destroy KAM’s empire. Panel after glorious panel depicting all the AWESOME interiors. In fact, I’m getting so pumped writing about it I MIGHT actually scan some for you.

It was….amazing. I SO wanted to visit this place. Oh yeah, I knew it was just a comic, but look at that commercial! That place HAD to exist somewhere. Man I wanted to go. To this day, I sit sometimes and fantasize that I will grow incredibly wealthy and that, with my ludicrous wealth, I would build an exact replica of the Warehouse. See, I can’t give Michael Jackson hell cause of Neverland (oh, sure, it’s totally a pedophile’s trap, but give me the point for a second) – if I had the dough, I’d build the Wacky Warehouse. Now during the week, it’d be just for me and my buds, but on Saturday and Sundays, I’d open it to kids (and their parents, so that Neverland thing wouldn’t happen).

Just this paragraph isn’t enough to tell you about my obsession. It continues to this day. From time to time, I check out Kool-Aid to see if they’ve brought it back. Sometimes I idly browse eBay for WW gear. Man, I miss it. Maybe I’ll dig up that old comic.

Oh, last minute plea: Anyone who has ANY issues of Kool-Aid Man comics but issue 4, I totally want to buy them. Especially if you have multiple issues. I have Paypal.

God I love Kool-Aid Man.

  1. Man seeing that ad again brought a smile to my face, definetly one of my favorites from when I was a kid.
    I think I have an old archie/kool aid man comic where they come to my home province of Newfoundland, Its actually pretty rare but I doubt its worth anything substantial, I can have a look around for it if you’d like.

  2. I would club baby seals for that, bro. Let me know, I’ll hook you up with the PayPizzal for postage.

  3. Haha so you’ve heard of the place!!
    yeah I think its at my old house, I’ll give my Dad a shout tomorrow and see If he can dig it up for me.

  4. I don’t have any Kool-Aid man comics but, me and my friends like Kool-Aid man. Hence, my blog title. If you build the Wacky Warehouse, I’ll so be there!

  5. bad news buddy, the comic is Sans Kool-aid man, or at least so says my dad, I think it’s a strict archie afair, but apparantly theres some Kool-aid ads, I guess thats what influenced my memory,
    But hey, if you still want it I’d be happy to send it your way.
