Production Company: The Geffen Film Company
Distribution Company:The Topps Company, Inc.
Year of Production: 1986
Pack Contents: 5 stickers, 1 stick bubble gum
“Feed me Seymour…feed me!” Who can forget the famous line from the amazingly wonderful (and completely off-the-wall) comedy/sci-fi/horror flick from the 1980’s, Little Shop of Horrors? Combining an All Star cast of comedians, with a screenplay from 1960, Frank Oz ended up creating a cult hit that is still celebrated today. And like seemingly every other semi-successful movie from the 80’s/90’s…Topps, Inc. decided to turn Little Shop of Horrors into a non-sport trading card set.
This set was a fairly typical release from Topps, and consisted of (a somewhat small-ish) 44 cards in a complete set. The cards consisted of a sticker on the front, and the backs featured either a scene from the movie, a character profile, or a puzzle piece.
Unlike other movie trading card sets, it’s not as easy to follow along with the movie by flipping through these cards – and that’s likely due to the small base set. But still, the stickers manage to capture all of the hilarity of Bill Murray, Steve Martin, John Candy, James Belushi, Rick Moranis and more! These are definitely a must-have for any fan of the movie (or cheesy trading cards!!).
