This is one of two anonymously issued Japanese Menko card sets which show a bizarre mixture of characters which appear to include Tarzan, Popeye, Mickey Mouse, and others. This set features relatively small, black and white illustrations while the other set contains large, colorized images. It is unclear if every B&W card has a colorized counterpart or vice versa.
