Notes: Unnumbered. This series is listed under the heading "Heinerle Skizzen-Verlag Film Stars", but the actual title on the albums is "Fernseh-Parade" (TV Parade). This title doesn't appear on the cards themselves.

Two albums were issued, one red and one blue, to house 121 cards, 60 in the red album and 61 in the blue album. The blue album in particular is very rare. The checklist is complete and in alphabetical order, cards were unnumbered. To show which card belongs in which album, either a "B" (for blue) or "R" (for red) is placed next to the name. The same card for "Hans Joachim Kulenkampff" can be found in both albums, which is why both "B" and "R" can be found next to his name! One other thing: When the backs of the cards are red, they belong in the blue album, and when the backs are blue, they belong in the red album.

Heinerle made an error with the blue album. Even though only 60 cards were announced on the back of the cards, there is space in the album for 61 cards - the same Kulenkampff card is needed to complete both albums! Maybe they realised their error and withdrew the album, because only 2 complete albums have surfaced to date.

According to German collector Nick Bolton, there was at least one series where bubble gum was issued with Heinerle cards, but usually the cards were available in bags, or even so-called "lucky bags," which in addition to a card or two, also contained a surprise gift. Although they weren't the first company to sell their cards as products in bags, they were key in making the concept acceptable and popular with German collectors.

Date info: There is a Walt Disney page in the blue album with discusses the 1960 Winter Olympics at Squaw Valley near Lake Tahoe in California. This is discussed as an upcoming event with Walt Disney as the director in charge of entertainment and in charge of the design of many elements. This event took place from February 18-28, 1960. This card set must have been released in very early 1960 or earlier, possibly 1959. I'm placing a date of 1960 on the set.

Thanks to Greg Graetz and Nick Bolton for help with this checklist.
