Hello,

As promised, here is the pic of the knock-off Kreepy mug. Actually, I have 2. One is Brown, which I don't think was a colour yet mentioned. Anyway, you'll notice that the knock-off is different in that it has far less detail, and the white mug is glazed black inside:..



I went back and double-checked the other mugs I got from Zellers this summer and guess what?

They weren't Munktiki but they were definately their designs:




Crazy huh?

I have a green El Diablo too and two of the shot glasses done in green. I got all three of them from Ms. Neilsen's store. They are genuine Munktiki's.

Slacks,
thanks for the pics. What do the bottom's of these mugs say?

Time to start typing those cease and desist letters. Unbelieveable.
Hmm actually now that I think about it. I think I actually put the physical copyrights through for the El Bastardo and Skull monkey designs. Thats not good for them.

I didn't get the mugs at Munktiki's store, I got the mugs at Mrs. Neilsen's (Paul's wife/Stuckie's mom) store like I stated earlier. The store is in Carmel.

so what exactly is zellers in canada? is this a chain store, and are these mugs marked in any fashion on the bottom? what price are they selling them for?

it does appear that they are not as crisp, and also a little shinier than the real munktikis.

stuckie~ i hope you and paul really stick it to 'em.

and if you ever find yourself in sleepy carmel, you simply must visit vanities.....debra AND yoko run a fine store. (but watch out for debra--she is quite the saleslady...leave plastic at home!)

I checked the "Zellers" website but I didn't come across any of the mugs.

http://www.hbc.com/zellers/

*edit* I found the site yesterday before the pics were posted on this thread. Wanted to compare the two mugs. Not lookin for a deal!

Hi Stuckie,

I don't have the labels that were on the bottom of these mugs anymore. They were quite cumbersome and didn't really have much info on them anyway. There is nothing idented on the bottom.

I think they were made in China, and the name of the company was something like Garden Trends or Zen Gardens. I dunno, I could be way off on that...

Sorry I can't be more help.
