October 8, 2014: WBRE -- Wilkes Barre-Scranton, PA

Between the orange coating and big, cartoony letters (not to mention an exclamation point), this mug is much more than a coffee cup – it's a reminder of your childhood.

September 25, 2014: WETM -- Elmira, NY

Seeing stars is not just for being knocked out or celebrity spotting; it's also snazzy mug design.
