The Great Muppet Caper Glasses from McDonalds

I had the one on the far left with Kermit on the bike, but due to my habit of only using my collector’s edition glasses for everything, it died long ago.

  1. First of all, your blog is awesome and I love your podcasts. I feel like I am in a time machine having a conversation with myself whenever I listen. If that makes any sense at all.

    These glasses are great, but my personal favorites were the Smurfs. I can’t remember how many there were in the collection, but I remember going with my mom through the McDonald’s drive through each Sunday to see if the newest ones had been released. It seems like we had two Smurfettes, which sucked.

    The neat thing about stuff like that is whenever I would go to a friend’s house, they would have a glass that I didn’t have, like Papa Smurf–which was one hundred times cooler than whatever I had in addition to no longer being released. So, I would just go home and drink Coke from my Smurfette glass and wish McDonald’s would suddenly remember they had some extra Papa Smurf glasses that they would give to me for free. Thank heavens for Ebay.
