We have a thing for collecting vintage lunch boxes from the 60’s and 70’s, which in the last decade have become hot collectibles! Here are a few of our faves…
Who doesn’t love the original Planet of the Apes movies from the 60’s and 70’s?
Sure, everybody had a Star Wars lunch box, but the campier TV copycat Battlestar Galactica is much harder to find!
Does anyone remember this obscure TV series which only lasted two seasons on ABC? Produced by Irwin Allen, Land of the Giants has since become a cult favorite!
1960’s Lost in Space started out as a smart Sci Fi series about a space age Family Robinson. It quickly devolved into a campy, kitschy show revolving around the very gay Dr. Smith and Robot. Still, it remains a childhood favorite for many.
The original “Girl Power” epitomized by smart Sabrina, beautiful Kelly, and sexy Kris as Charlie’s Angels, one of the most popular TV shows of the 70’s. By the time this lunch box arrived on shelves, superstar Farrah Fawcett had left for her film career, and replaced by Cheryl Ladd.

An excellent pictorial of “Man Caves” from the 60’s and 70’s here.
“The definitive populuxe film. This Jam Handy produced, Chevrolet sponsored technicolor movie, was designed to get the American public ready for the 1959 Chevy Impala. Just a decade earlier, car companies were producing one model, and you kept it as long as you could. Now, there were options, and colors, and and you wanted the new model every year. Some may call this propaganda. Hell, it was made by Chevrolet, did you NOT think there would be cars in it. GM’s agenda in no way detracts from the mid-century magic in this film. This is straight up vintage eye porn. If you’re into atomic age design and mid-century minimalism, then this is your Citizen Kane.” – ZarakPhoto
Set Decorator Amy Wells and Production Designer Dan Bishop have nailed the period perfectly from the show’s time span of early 60’s to 1969. Everything from furniture to distinctive props and wallpaper all come together to create “Mid Century Modern Porn” for us design addicts!
In our continuing series of pop culture “bearodies” we bring you our homage to Farrah’s best-selling 70’s pin-up poster of all time – “Bearrah Pawcett!” No photoshop here, the Farrah wig, serape, and red wrestling singlet were all purchased on ebay. Modern Bear Travis Smith posed for photographer Leland Gebhardt and did his best to recreate the iconic pose but as he put it, “my belly and other parts kept getting in the way.”
The “Bearrah” poster is available from the Modern Bear Store: http://modernbear.net/?page_id=184
