Kids love having visuals of animated characters on their personal props. This is especially true for accessories used in the kitchen such as glasses, cups, etc. The large Calimero glass presented in this article will surely appeal to your child to contain the different drinks that you will serve him in the future.


Who is Calimero, that little black chick that carries its shell on its head?


An Italian cartoon character created in the early 1960s, Calimero is a bit apart in its category. Calimero was not originally created with the aim of being a cartoon character. Its creation was for advertising purposes.

Indeed, this small anthropomorphic chick, charming, but unlucky, fell into the mud from birth. This is what explains its black complexion so particular in comparison to traditional chicks. Even in the scope from which it comes, it is the only one to be in this situation.


the brothers Nino and Toni Pagot who imagined this character intended him to be used in an advertisement for the laundry Ava. The purpose of the advertisement was to show the quality of the Ava laundry to make any task like mud go on Calimero.

But this first appearance in the years 1962 will be gradually extended in other series such as La costanza dà sempre buoni frutti ("Constancy always gives good fruit") or in the series "Calimero the black chick" in the years 1963.


Nino Pagot later dies and his heirs will take up the torch to make Calimero rise to the rank of celebrity worldwide known for his bad luck and his cult phrase « This is really too unfair ». But before reaching this level, Calimero is put back in the context of an animated series with a non-advertising purpose.

The series that lasted one minute will gradually take up space and then go to 5 and then 20 minutes. The cartoon was such a success that the episodes destined for the international market would be exported to Japan. Toei produced it in 47 episodes between 1974 and 1975 before a new version of 52 episodes was broadcast in the 1990s.


Calimero, the unlucky little chick


Calimero sees himself as an unlucky character and he keeps complaining about his situation. His reply "It's really too unfair" at the end of each episode enters the collective imagination and since then, it has become the symbol of people who are victims of persecution syndrome or those who complain in a derisory way.

Calimero is accompanied by several friends, including his girlfriend Priscilla, Valeriano, Piero, Rosalie and many others.


The large Calimero glass


The large Calimero glass measures 14 cm in height and 7.5 cm in diameter. Your child will be able to receive all his drinks there. We find on the glass the drawing of Calimero the black chick with black spots on the ledge. It is a very well decorated accessory.
