Retro Flashback — Did You Have Any of the Warner Bros. Cartoon Mugs?

Warner Bros Mugs

The latest Geico ad has me reminiscing. You know, the one with Wile E. Coyote and Roadrunner chasing through the desert.

I have vague memories of sipping out of a coffee mug my dad describes as “awfully phallic” as a kid. It was of that perpetually failing coyote.

Did any of you have one of these? Do you remember how they came to be?

They were a KFC promotion in 1992. You paid something like $5 to get them with your meal. This was back when those toys and prizes and merchandise was of some quality — my dad kept the mugs up until three years ago when he gave them away!

Now, if you’re lucky enough to have kept one or all eight, they go for about $15-25 each or nearly $200 for the set. Incredible.

The only one I didn’t have was Foghorn. The others included: Daffy Duck, Tweetie Bird, Bugs Bunny, Taz, Wile E. Coyote and Silvester.

Somewhere I have 100 or so vintage Happy Meal toys in a box at my mother’s house. Maybe I’ll do some digging soon.

What’s your coolest novelty find?
