These Prove the 70s were Way More Awesome

RealClear Staff


Hark back to a time when the what was inside the lunchbox -- peanut butter and jelly on white bread, sliced apples and some animal crackers -- was way less exciting than what was on the outside of the lunchbox.

1. 'Charlie's Angels'

Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith are kicking some major butt, but gotta tell ya, Cheryl Ladd doesn't look like she minds being tied up.

2. Bobby Sherman

Who remembers singer Bobby Sherman as a teen idol? Me neither.

3. I Have No Words for This ...

4. 'The Waltons'

This has to be one of the strangest choices for a lunchbox ever. Like, they couldn't think of anything better to depict than the family trying to get their car unstuck? Weird.

5. 'Mork & Mindy'

Nanoo Nanoo! says Robin Williams. One of the rare lunchboxes with a photo as opposed to a cheesy drawing.

6. 'The Dukes of Hazzard'

If they made it today, the General couldn't have the Confederate Flag on its roof. And it wouldn't be named the General Lee.

7. 'Scooby Doo'

What's in the box? A Scooby snack, of course!

8. Evel Knievel

Little did my parents know that this lunchbox inspired me to try and jump cars on my bicycle on the way to school ... 

9. 'Happy Days'


10. 'The Six Million Dollar Man'

Faster than a speeding horse! Able to leap gas-guzzling cars at a single bound! Able to ... uproot a tree? Look! It's Lee Majors!

11. 'The Bionic Woman'

Meanwhile, the Bionic Woman (Lindsay Wagner) can rip a book in half in a classroom. Now that's the kind of substitute teacher I would have loved!

12. 'The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams'

So is the bear laughing at one of Grizzly Adams' dirty jokes? 

13. 'The Hardy Boys Mysteries'

Who committed the crime? More importantly, where did Parker Stevenson and Shaun Cassidy get their hair done?

14. 'Welcome Back, Kotter'

Up your nose with a rubber hose, kids.

15. 'Hee Haw'

Buck Owens and Roy Clark are both grinnin', if not pickin', in this kinda creepy looking lunchbox.

16. 'Star Trek'

What's everyone smiling at? Is Sulu doing a striptease off camera?

17. 'Star Wars'

This badass lunchbox will make any peanut butter and jelly sandwich that comes out of it taste like a gourmet cheeseburger!
