This sticker set and the corresponding album were released to jump on the hottest craze in 1990, our favorite family. Merchandise during this time period all followed the same pattern, leveraging a limited number of images, catch phrases and designs to quickly release items for sale. Like most merchandise released in 1990, and just like The Simpsons Topps Trading cards, using images from the show required using images from The Tracey Ullman Show since they were the easiest to obtain and license. This however presented several issues; the design of our favorite family had evolved from the initial vignettes and the characters had changed and matured. To address this they only used episodes from the third and last season of the vignettes from The Tracey Ullman Show when the character design had evolved closer to that of the first 1989-1990 season of The Simpsons. The album leverages most of the same scenes [but not the same images!] from 8 of the 12 vignettes chosen for the The Simpsons Topps Trading cards from 1990 but unlike the cards presents them in a logical sequence and presents the original story from the vignette.



The set consists of 150 stickers showing Simpsons scenes taken from The Tracey Ullman show to be placed into The Simpsons Sticker Activity Album. The back of each of the stickers shows the sticker number as illustrated on the right and suggests trading your extras with friends to get the ones your missing.

94 of the stickers show 94 different scenes from The Simpsons,
as illustrated on the upper right with this scene shown on Sticker #54 from [MG44] Bathtime.

The Simpsons Diamond Sticker #54
The Simpsons Diamond Sticker #29 reverse

The Simpsons Diamond Stickers #3-4

16 of the stickers are used as a pair to show 8 different scenes from The Simpsons, as illustrated on the left with this scene shown on Stickers #3-4 from [MG36]  Echo Canyon.  Bart and Lisa are reading Bad and Worse and Maggie's book has a pacifier on the front (we've intentionally left white lines between stickers on this illustration and the one below to make the division more obvious!)

Sixteen of the stickers are used four at a time to show 4 different scenes from The Simpsons, as illustrated on the right with this scene shown on Stickers #147-150 from [MG37] Scary Movie showing a terrified Bart and a calm Maggie and Lisa.

Lastly, 24 of the stickers are used
12 at a time across 2 pages to illustrate a couch scene. All the the stickers portray a color scene

The Simpsons Diamond Stickers #147-150
from the show except these 24, which use red/blue-green outlines to create a motion effect when using the supplied red/blue-green Slide-O-Scope glasses.

The stickers were sold in packs of 6 for 40 cents each in the United States. More information on this below in our packaging section!

The stickers were identical across most countries but in Argentina they decided to print the numbers on the front thereby avoiding the need for a different back on each sticker. More information below in the Argentina section!

Guide to Stickers and Album-to-Episodes Comparison

Entries below have:
- Sticker numbers followed by our description of the sticker(s)
- the actual text from the album (if any)
- If different, the actual dialogue from the show, in blue
- (optionally) additional observations
If the entire scene is out of place/sequence then the entire entry is in red.

Dialogue was often changed to explain what one watching the show would see visually, to simplify the dialogue, or even to correct grammar. However dialogue is also changed to reflect the changes in the show from TTUS to the full half-hour show, particularly the conversion of Lisa from the Bart-like rebel to the refined intellectual... albeit still the rebel.

The stickers were half the size of a normal
trading card, measuring just 6.5 cm wide by
4.4 cm high (2 9/16" x 1 3/4").  They were
sold in packets of 6 stickers each for 40 cents (U.S.A.) or 45 cents (Canada) with Our

Favorite family shown on the front with Bart saying "Stick It, Man!".   The front and reverse of the packet is shown on the right with printing in English and French..

Diamond Stickers Box On the left we have a box / counter display that held 50 packs of stickers, which retailed for $20. Since this box contained 300 stickers one could nearly complete the set of 150 or with trading even complete two sets. Bart is saying Stick it, man!, with this family design echoed on the packets and albums.

Diamond Stickers 6 Pack On the left we find a set of five sticker packs and on the right is a "Starter Set" that contained an album and five sticker packs. In summary, the various ways stickers could be purchased and their corresponding UPC codes are as follows;

UPC 009128 476018 04   Sticker Pack of 6 stickers
UPC 009128 476019 04   Item 47601 Display Box of 50 Packs
UPC 011571 210262        5 Pack of album stickers
UPC 011571 210255        5 Pack of album stickers & album

Of course, for the ultimate set of stickers, a case of 12 boxes could be obtained.

The Albums


James E. Engel and Sidney Diamond filed

Diamond Simpsons Sticker Activity Album Slide-O-Scope

Diamond Simpsons Sticker Activity Album
for and received patent 4,714,275 on Dec, 22, 1987 for a "Toy Sticker Collection Album and Collectible Stickers Therefore" assigned to
Diamond Publishing of Niles, Illinois. In that filing they accurately
described the format of
the Simpsons album we
see released in 1990,
containing places for the stickers and the motion Slide-O-Scope, an

unassembled set (two were included) we show on top of this section,
and an almost completely assembled one we show above. The Slide-O-Scope was used to view the images included throughout the book,
including, for example, Lisa Simpson jumping rope on the right.
The albums contain 24 pages, except when supplemented by individual manufacturers in other countries. An index describing each of the sections within the album is provided above in the section titled Index to Stickers By Episode & Album Page.

United States & Canada

In the United States & Canada albums were published by Diamond Publishing, Inc. and sold for 79 cents. Much of the
Diamond Logo Diamond Simpsons Sticker Activity Album Diamond Simpsons Sticker Activity Album Back Cover
cover was in English and French and the back
cover of the album was divided between U.S.
and Canada providing details on either trading or
buying stickers. Further info on this album can be found in our Simpsons Book List.

United Kingdom & Ireland  (1991)

Initially the Diamond albums sold in the United
States were also used in this overseas market by
Diamond Simpsons Sticker UK Price Sticker Diamond Simpsons Sticker Activity Album UK Back Cover Sticker
Euroflash, using price stickers over the top right hand corner to reflect the U.K. price of 50p and the Eire price of 75p.   A large sticker was placed on the back cover to order stickers in the UK.

Euroflash then published albums of their own (printed in Italy) that were identical to the Diamond albums within but on the cover had;

  1) the UK and Eire prices
  2) the Euroflash logo (as shown here) and
  3) had a updated back cover to reflect the
      UK instructions for ordering stickers.
Further info on this album can be found within our UK Simpsons Book List.

France  (1991)

In France albums were
Euroflash Figuirine Logo Euroflash Simpsons Sticker Activity Album Euroflash Simpsons Sticker Activity Album Back Cover
published by Euroflash Figurine, and sold for 6,00 francs. The U.S. edition had both the front and
back cover in English and French for the Canadian market, but the French edition was entirely in
French, with all titles, dialogue and puzzle pages in French. The back cover (as shown on the far right)
also supplied the instructions for sending away to Editions De Tournon in Paris for stickers. Further info on this album, including a free promotional version, can be found within our French Simpsons Book List. This album was also used in Belgium in addition to the Dutch album below.

Netherlands  (1991)

In Netherlands and Belgium albums were distributed in French and
Dutch. For other publications we've
seen French albums printed
separately from the ones distributed
Semic Logo Semic Simpsons Sticker Activity Album Semic Simpsons Sticker Activity Album Back Cover
in France, but only the French albums documented above were sold here. To the right we have the
Dutch album, published by Semic, which sold for 1,50 florins in the Netherlands and 30 Belgium francs in Belgium. Since they did not provide the option for sending away for stickers they simply reprinted the image of OFF on the back cover. This entire album was in Dutch, with Bart on the cover saying "Leeker Plakken Man!".   Further info on this album can be found within our Netherlands Book List.

Argentina  (1992)

In Argentina albums were
Cromy Logo Cromy Simpsons Sticker Activity Album - Argentina Cromy Simpsons Sticker Activity Album Back Cover - Argentina
published in Spanish by Cromy. All instructions
within the Album, all episode titles and all
dialogue was translated into Spanish, with Bart on
the cover saying "Pegala, Man!". The inside front
cover also included a sticker checklist
("Computador") to track your collection.
Four additional pages in full color with a Simpsons
introduction and with puzzles and games were
added that wrapped the traditional inside contents
and all pages were renumbered accordingly. A way
of trading or purchasing additional stickers was not
The Simpsons Cromy Sticker #119 The Simpsons Cromy Sticker Pack
supplied and hence Cromy leveraged the back cover for advertising, as
shown above on the right, including Cromy "Los Simpsons Juego de Naipes", i.e., playing cards, which are themselves documented on our Simpsons Games list here. The stickers themselves were identical except for the addition of the sticker number on the front of each sticker in one of the corners, as illustrated on the above right with sticker #119, thereby saving them the trouble of printing different backs on each sticker to supply the sticker number. The stickers were sold in packs of 5, with a repeated design on the front of the sticker pack with each member of the family, a slice of one design featuring Bart flashing a peace sign shown on the above right.
Cromy Bart Sticker Activity Album - Argentina
Argentina was also to follow in 1993 with as Bart Sticker Album "Album de Figuritas Bart" shown here on the bottom right, with a separate set of 174 stickers. Further info on these albums can be found within our Spanish Simpsons Book List.

Other Countries

There was also a Peruvian edition of this album for which we are still acquiring additional information and only have a terrible scan, evidence of which appears on the right. We believe there was also a Finnish album and suspect others may eventually be found. Know of any? We would love to hear from you and credit you with supplying the info!
