Children cartoons are one of the main topics for deck of cards. I will show today three decks from FX Schmid dealing with 3 cartoon series which were very popular in the early 80s. Even today they have a certain fandom that keeps them alive.
From Wickie, for example, there was a real action movie made only a few years ago, while Nils Holgersson is still a very famous book, especially in Scandinavia.
Der Aberteuer-Kobold Pumuckl (No.61622) 1980
Selma´s Lagerlöf´s Nils Holgersson (No.61822) 1981
It is curious that all these card decks have a reference number ending with “22”. Maybe this 22 indicates something in the reference coding system by FX Schmid, but what exactly?
