The Giddies!

Created by Reese James in the 60's or 70's for the Cole National Corp of Cleveland, Ohio, The Giddies are the hilarious, shag-headed, and possibly naked, drunken characters of this superbly designed set of 4 drink coasters and 4 stirrers. And while I do not condone alcohol consumption of any kind, I do adore the amazing artwork and text featured on the coasters and stirrers, as well as on the pea green box packaging-- I also noticed on google the set came in a pink version too! Lots of fun to seriously liven up any party, and hey it's the latest style-- the stirrers fit in the coaster slots as well! Also comes with a bathroom survey sheet on the back of the box!

(A super big thanks to CPC for finding this set for me!)

Giddies! I'm sure I've seen these guys all over, but a cursory examination online isn't turning up much more than what's pictured here, so I'm not sure where I would've.

I really like all the handwriting on the box, too. Excellent find!

My guess would be greeting card art from the 60's and 70's too-- love it!

I have a framed print ... "There's very few problems I can't overcome". Sitting next to a table just full of pills. classic!
