There’s always room for Jell-O! It’s as true today as it was when Kraft Food Company adopted the slogan in 1964 to promote a variety of delicious gelatinous desserts. Although millions of people continue to slide loads of this patented sugary gelatin down their gullets each year, the company’s former mascot, Jell-O Man, has all but faded into obscurity. One of the few antiquities that documents this coagulated hero’s existence is The Adventures of Jell-O Man and Wobbly, a free promotional comic released in 1991. I received my copy of this comic when I was eleven years old as a supplement in the first issue of Nickelodeon Magazine. The Jell-O Man and Wobbly comic was a self-proclaimed collector’s edition, and I bought their pitch hook, line, and sinker. I was certain that this supposed four-color treasure was going to secure my retirement during my twilight years. I carefully read this issue at a forty degree angle to avoid breaking the spine, and then methodically bagged and boarded it. Unfortunately, my numerous attempts to sell the issue were met with scowls and laughter by the plethora of potential buyers. In hindsight, I’m glad no one took me up on my offers, because this comic has grown on me quite a bit since my pre-teen years. I’m unaware of this issue having any monetary value, but I have definitely developed a sentimental attachment to it. As you’ve probably guessed, this week’s Wacky Comic Wednesday is devoted to one of my childhood delights, the corporate sponsored, propaganda leaflet/proponent of my adolescent obesity known as The Adventures of Jell-O Man and Wobbly #1.
