Verpackungspapier der Kaugummis

Die Kaugummireihe Mickey Mouse Bubble Gum erschien 1935 bei Gum Inc., Philadelphia. Zu den Kaugummis gab es Sammelkarten, die laut Kaugummikarten-Sammler Adam Cohen „wahrscheinlich der Ursprung der massenproduzierten Comic-Kartensätze sind“.[1][2] Zu den Kaugummis konnte man noch zwei Sammelalben für die Karten kaufen.

Anders als andere Kaugummikarten der Zeit zeigen diese statt historischen Fakten oder einer durchgehenden Handlung kleinere illustrierte Wortwitze. Die Textseite baut den Gag auf und verweist für die Punchline auf die farbige Illustrationsseite der Karte. Die Zeichnungen auf den Karten stammten laut einem 1995-Nachdruck des Albums von Walt Disney und die Gags von Hal Horne, auf den Karten wurde nur das Copyright von Disney vermerkt, Gum Inc. wird nur indirekt auf der Kartenrückseite als MICKEY MOUSE BUBBLE GUM, Philadelphia, Pa. genannt.

Sammelkarten[Bearbeiten]

Die Sammelkarten-Bewertungsfirma Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA)[3] unterscheidet zwischen der Kartenreihe R89 und R90, obwohl die Nummerierung beider Reihen durchgehend ist.

R89: Mickey Mouse[Bearbeiten]

Die ersten Kaugummis zeigten den Bildgag auf denselben Karten wie der dazugehörige Text (Karten 1–24; Type I), doch bald wurden die Bilder und Texte auf verschiedenen Karten verteilt, um Anreiz zum Sammeln eines kompletten Sets zu bieten (Karten 1–96 Type II).

Die Wortwitze auf den Karten sind meistens schwer übersetzbar, da sie im Deutschen nicht funktionieren oder auf Redensarten basieren, die es so im Deutschen nicht gibt.

Die Frage von Karte 89 samt Zeichnung von Karte 90 illustrieren aber ganz gut, wie das Schema der Gags funktionieren:

„Micky schlief fest. Er träumte, dass jemand einen riesigen Berg Eiscreme gebracht hatte. Es war köstliches süßes Eis, und in seinen Träumen sah er Minnie und sich in den Berg hineingraben, sie bedienten sich mit großen Bissen. Ein herrlicher Traum, nicht wahr?
Wie würdest du solche Träume nennen?“
„Süße Träume“ [2]

Zusätzlich zu der schon auf den Kaugummikarten vorgegebenen Nummer vergab die PSA jeder Karte einen Namen,[4] die in den folgenden Tabellen auch genutzt werden. Meist zitieren diese Titel einen oder mehrere der Sätze des Dialogs auf der Karte, manchmal mit Tippfehlern (wie bei Karte 113).

Alben[Bearbeiten]

Für fünf Kaugummi-Packungen und fünf US-Cents konnte man sich ein Mickey Mouse Picture Card Album holen, in dem man die Kaugummi-Karten sammeln konnte. Die ersten 48 Karten kamen ins erste Album, Karten 49 bis 96 ins zweite.

Im Album war die Test-Seite der Karten unter den Stellen abgedruckt, an denen man die Karte einkleben sollte. Auf einer Seite war Platz für je drei Karten.

Diese Alben waren nur für die Karten von R89 verfügbar.

1995 kam es zu einem Nachdruck der Karten und der beiden Alben.

Qualität und Seltenheit[Bearbeiten]

Heutzutage sind die Karten und Alben oft nur noch in schlechter Qualität verfügbar. Die Pappkarten wurden oft in die Alben geklebt, was die Qualität zusätzlich einschränkt. „Das Papier selbst wird leicht schmutzig“, so Kartensammler Brian Karl im Gespräch mit PSA. „Man merkt, dass das Set nicht für für eine lange Lebensdauer gemacht wurde; es gibt keinen Schutz irgendeiner Art.“
„Ich hatte schon ein paar Alben in der Hand, aber sie waren in schlechtem Zustand“, sagt Karl zum Album. „Ich habe kein unbenutztes Album gefunden, und ich weiß nicht, ob ich jemals eines finden werde.“[2]

Die erste und die letzte Karte im Set erreichen dank der oft zusätzlichen Abnutzungserscheinungen hohe Preise auf dem Zweitmarkt, auch die beiden Karten mit Walt Disney heben sich dort preislich von den anderen Karten ab.

Karten-Texte[Bearbeiten]

Die Witze auf den einzelnen Kaugummikarten sind nicht immer leicht lesbar. Hier ist eine Liste der Witze, die auf den R89-Karten gedruckt wurden.

Anmerkung

„Man findet sie einfach nicht“, sagte Karl. „Ich habe lange Zeit auf meinen [Movie Star]-Karten gesessen und nicht einmal gemerkt, was ich hatte. Mir war nicht klar, wie selten sie sind.“

Die Witze auf den einzelnen Kaugummikarten sind nicht immer leicht lesbar. Hier ist eine Liste der Witze, die auf den R90-Karten gedruckt wurden.
