Hardee's "Smurfs" Series (1982)

There were 8 glasses in this series:  Gargamel & Azrael, Jokey Smurf, Smurfette, Papa Smurf, Grouchy Smurf, Brainy Smurf, Lazy Smurf, Hefty Smurf.

What I like about this series is that every glass has more than just a drawing of the character.  Every picture has background and/or foreground.  It's a funny scene that really makes the glass worth having.

I took all the pictures you see of the glasses in this series.  I wanted to share with you the entire, wraparound scene.  Hope you like them!

Hardee's "Smurfs" Series (1983)

There were 6 glasses in this series:  Harmony Smurf, Papa Smurf, Handy Smurf, Clumsy Smurf, Smurfette, Baker Smurf.

I really don't notice any difference in quality with this series.  It's done just as well as the first series.  I love it!

I took all the pictures you see of the glasses in this series.  My idea was for you to see the entire, wraparound scene.  Hope you like them!

Pepsi "Smurfs" Series

There were 8 glasses in this series:  Drummer Smurf, Lazy Smurf, Brainy Smurf, Smurfette, Jokey Smurf, Greedy Smurf, Fishing Smurf, Papa Smurf.  I don't know what year these were released, but I do know they were made in Argentina.

It's pretty easy to distinguish these glasses from the Hardee's "Smurfs" glasses.  The most obvious tip-off is the Pepsi logo, prominently featured near the top of the glass.  Another thing is the shape of the glass itself.  Pepsi glasses of the 1970s-80s were typically cone-shaped.  They were also made of a heavier glass.  The "Smurfs" glasses of this series are much harder to find than the Hardee's "Smurfs" glasses and command a higher price among collectors.  Truth be told, I think I probably prefer the Hardee's "Smurfs" glasses over the Pepsi "Smurfs" glasses, but they're all fine-looking drinking glasses of the cheery little blue guys.

I don't have any pictures of these glasses, yet.  Keep watching!
