Odd Rods is a cult classic.  Donruss released the first Odd Rods sticker set back in 1969.  It consists of 44 stickers and features monsters driving various vehicles.  The artwork was done by B.K. Taylor.  This product was very successful and spawned many more follow-up sets such as: Odder Odd Rods, Oddest Odd Rods, Odd Rod All Stars, Fabulous Odd Rods, and Fantastic Odd Rods Series 1 & 2.   Donruss also released similar products like Silly Cycles and Friends and Machines.

Here is a promotional movie made by the people at Odd Rods.  Yes, that is Charles in Charge narrating.
