Do You Remember The Archies?

I was rummaging through my attic earlier this week and found this fun group of juice tumblers that I had totally forgotten about.


Do you remember The Archies? The zany group of comic/cartoon characters included Archie, Betty, Reggie, Veronica, Jughead, Sabrina, Hot Dog, Mr. Weathersbee and others. The characters are featured on these tumblers dated 1971.


Archie Taking the Gang for a Ride

Archie and Jughead had to push the car.

Sabrina Cleans Her Room

Wasn't Sabrina a teenage witch?

The Archies Having a Jam Session

You can't see Hot Dog holding his paws over his ears.

And Hot Dog Goes to School

Hot Dog aced his test.

When you look through to the bottom of the glass, one of the characters looks back at you!




So DO you remember The Archies?

  1. I found a set of 6 of these glasses at St. Vincent's last winter. I lived for Archie comic books when I was younger so there was no way that I could leave them behind. They are now my daughters favorite juice glasses:-)

  3. I remember the Archies. I used to beg my mom to buy me their comic books everytime we went to the store. I loved Betty and hated Veronica! Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

  12. Sugar, sugar! I tried to explain the TV show to my kids who just rolled their eyes, esp when I try to demonstrate they way they danced. Why the hate, kids? I was cool once. Thanks for the memory and now that song will be in my head all day - I think I'll track down my kids and sing it to them.

  14. Hi Sherry! I too remember the Archies. Their comic books and those jelly glasses. I also remember eating all that jelly to get those glasses..see I was a picky eater grape was ok, but you had to eat strawberry too to get the assorted set. I think every so many weeks a new pair showed up. If I remember right there were 6, but man I was only 11 that year and I knew they'd be savers. Great finds....especially in your own attic!

  16. Now there is a walk down memory lane. I bet you were thrilled to find these in the attic of all places. Character glasses were so big back in the day. I just hate that everything is plastic now.

  17. The Archies were my favorite comic book when I was a kid. Whenever we went on a family trip, my mom would let my brothers and I pick out one comic book each for the road. I always picked an Archies one. Once again Sherry, you have given us the gift of fun childhood memories with your post!Thank you for sharing them with us at TTF. I hope you are having a lovely weekend!
