I found these ceramic guys at Goodwill and they seem to have been glued to some sort of background. I have scoured Cartoon Modern and Tiki Modern to id them because they seem so familiar. Does anyone have a clue about these?

Thanks so much! I should have looked harder! I knew I had seen them before.

They remind me of the seven deadly sins in the Captain Marvel (SHAZAM) comics.

I recently got two of the same type of figures from eBay.
They have their original backings and frames. They need a little restoration - but I like 'em!

Here's a picture of one of the original labels...

If anyone has any more types of these figures - I'd love to see them!
