Arby's "B.C. Ice Age" Series (1981)



Arby's "B.C. Ice Age" Series (1981)

There were 6 glasses in this series:  Anteater, B.C., Fat Broad, Grog, Thor, and Wiley.  Every glass stood 5.25" and measured 2.75" wide.

These glasses were very well made, especially for a fast food promotion in the early 1980s.  They can STILL look like new with normal use.  The paint holds on great, and the glass is tough.  For some particular reason, these glasses are not really sought out by collectors, and they don't command too high of price.  Even more strange, these SHOULD be worth money, because they are not very easy to find.  The "Fat Broad" glass is probably the hardest to find of the set.  I really like these glasses, probably because I like the comic strip, but they're really just good quality items.

The illustrations are very simple.  The most elaborate designs are those of Anteater and Grog.  Anteater "zots" himself in the butt with his own long tongue that wraps around the glass.  Grog is listening to a shell.  B.C. and Fat Broad are standing.  Thor rides his wheel.  Wiley (the peg-legged, old caveman) leans on a club.  I'm really surprised that this series did NOT release glasses of popular characters like Peter (who is probably the most important character to the strip) and Cute Chick.
