Babe cards (Sanitarium, 1995) for the movie about the pig

Years ago, I bought the Babe 16-card set by Sanitarium. Does anyone know if the cards were distributed one at a time in food products or if they were sold only as a set. I understand they were available in Australia and maybe New Zealand.

The scans below show the front of card #1 (all fronts show scenes from the movie) and the back of card #2 (all backs show colorful artwork).

Thanks,

Jess

All Sanatarium cards in New Zealand are obtained by buying the product depending on the size and type of product dictates how many cards were included EG 1 , 2 , 3.
As far as I know the only items you can buy from Sanitarium are Albums, Posters, Tins to put the cards into
They do operate a swap service
in the 40s 50s if you sent in enough swaps you sometimes got a complete uncut sheet these are now like hens teeth
There was in some of the earlier sets uncut pairs issued
Since 1999 all sets issued wich is one set a year have been about the New Zealand Rugby All Blacks
Australia have mostly different cards to the New Zealand ones but in the eighties some of them were the same

Thanks, Piko. I'll add it to the PCE additions/corrections thread listings.

I will pull out my Sanitarium cards and check on the back of the Babe set to see if they are the same design as your one pictured
and will come up with a reply in a couple of days

I have looked at my Sanitarium Babe set and am sure it is a New Zealand set unless your one has a matt finish wich will possibly make it Australian
It was issued as a 16 card set in 1999 and your pictures line up .
As I never went for Australian cards i am sure that yours is NZ
I had to buy my Sanitarium cards that i had collected again as when i was discharged from the army i found my mother had had a clean out and my cards were included in the cleanout
A bit of usless info
Sanatarium started issuing cards in 1941 and still do today with an annual set
The product Weet Bix is made in Australia and New Zealand ( the Australian product has the NZ cards in it if manufactured at the time of the cards issue )
You can actually tell the difference between the NZ product and the Australian product .

My cards have a glossy finish so they must be from the New Zealand set. Thanks for the extra information too.
