Default Can you use VIC-20 game cartridges in a C64?

I just picked up a bunch of VIC-20 game cartridges from Value Village, they were having a 30 percent off sale and I saw these carts in a bag. I don't know if they'll work in a C64, I do have a VIC-20 somewhere, but I'm not sure exactly where.

Ah, no, you'll find that a VIC-20 cartridge is about two and a half times the width of a C64 cartridge, not to mention that the C64 has different peripheral I/O, an upgraded video chip, and a sound chip that isn't integrated into the video chip for a change, plus the 6502 was upgraded to a 6510. But hell, get a VIC-20, those things are cool-leet, especially since you can run http://www.scene.org/file.php?file=%...n.zip&fileinfoBack In The Good Old Days</a>, by Carillon, the most amazing bit of code that really makes the VIC-20 shine. Oh, and you can play the demo in VICE, too. <img src=smilies/cwm11.gif>
