Have Yourself an Ugly Little Christmas

I am not sure why, but I am actually kind of fond of these little ceramic Christmas ornaments released by "Dave Grossman Designs" from 1977-1979. They are so ugly, they're cute. I actually owned the creepy little Porky in the first picture at one point. I also like how they even made little hideously deformed versions of Foghorn and Beaky Buzzard.

totally agree with you: the charachteristic of these vintage figure is that they are so ugly and not as the "perfect" Looney Tunes, that they are, at the same time, cute: Some days ago I couldn't resist to buy for mysefl from e-bay the Wile E. Coyote figure: is artistic!

Hah! I got the whole set in '78 or '79, and even though I KNEW they were WAY off model, I was so starved for Looney Tunes merchandise that I treasure them to this day...and who could fault any set that included Beaky? Beaky! Talk about obscure!
