    Going by ebay they did a follow up series called Holiday Spirits which I can't remember for the life of me. Can only presume they weren't as popular? They don't look as interesting to be honest.

    Also surprised to see they released a set called Fitness Freakz in the 2000s sometime which many of the same characters. More of a top trump style card. Very little about these available though apart from a YouTube clip.

    Video here comparing Chamber of Horrors, Team Spirits and the follow up Fitness Freakz.

    Can find nothing at all anywhere about the Fitness Freakz cards but clearly same characters etc.

    Only remember ever collecting trading cards in the 60s, the man from uncle was the one that sticks in my mind, when you had the full set you could create a full size picture of napoleon solo, i can still smell the little square of pink chewing gum

    My first experience of trading cards was the Shocking Laffs Hammer Horror cards of the mid-1970s.

    They gave a tantalising glimpse into a world of films that my parents wouldn't have let me watch. I'm surprised I was allowed the cards actually, and suspect my Dad didn't know the content.

    I remember that brittle pink chewing gum too, the cards still smelt of it years later.
