"Catch Them If You Dare!" went the slogan. And very apt it was too, for these bouncy little balls where the most grotesque ones you would ever clamp eyes on. Disgusting they were! And because of this, they were, of course, an instant hit.
Because each Madball was its own little character, they were instantly collectible. The range included: Screamin Meemie; Slobulus; Aargh; Hornhead; Dustbrain, who was a time-ravaged Mummy; Oculus Orbus, who was basically one large bloodshot eye; Skull Face and Crack Head, who had his brains exposed. Due to the popularity a second series was also released, including Badballs: Wolf breath, Bruise Brother and Lock Lips.
