Who remembers Saturday morning cartoons back when they were REAL? I'm not talking about the sharp angles and edges of Japanese Anime - - - I'm talking about the likes of Bugs Bunny, Elmer Fudd, and Mr. Magoo.
In 1973 Pepsi produced a Warner Brother's Collector's series of glasses featuring Saturday Morning Cartoon characters. Sometime circa late 1975 or early 1976 Hardees offered these glasses for a little extra with the purchase of a soft drink.
Fisherhubby and I were newly weds going to school and living on less than a shoestring.
We planned and scrimped so we could eat at Hardees (in Clemson, South Carolina) once a week when the new glass came out. (Win-win! Eat out AND get a collector glass!)
We ate small burgers and fries so we could afford the extra pennies to get two of each of the new glasses - - -
Week after week until the promotion ended.
We got two glasses because we EACH wanted one - - -
And when we got them home, we put one in the cupboard to use, and wrapped the other up in newspaper and stored it away to preserve it.
I don't remember now if we managed to collect ALL of them or not, but I do know these are what we have left - - - in mint condition - - - treasured for the memories.
