Gordon Archer was the artist behind most of the Weetabix promotions during the 1970s and 80s. His distinctive style, using fine lines and inks, proved influential during that era and inspired budding artists in years to come.

As part of the 1975 Weetabix promotion, the cards that bore these characters were collected and traded by children in playgrounds across the country.

Some were lucky enough to have kept them while most lost the cards over the years. Either way, Gordon hopes you’ll enjoy his iconic artwork once again.

    I have a full set, it took me ages to get the Ice Warrior for some reason. I have had them for 45 years and eventually mounted them in a frame and it makes a nice display. I wish I had also helpt the background displays that were on the back of the boxes but they were lost years ago. I also have most of the 1977 Weetabix cards which were oblong and could be used in a game printed on the boxes.

    I used to collect these many years ago. I hate to admit i used to try and tamper with the boxes at the bottom of the packs to see which ones were in the packet.I never got the ones i really wanted.

      It’s ok, you’re among friends here, we won’t judge you. Mainly because many of us probably did the same thing…
