MR. BEAT MUSEUM
Welcome to the MR. BEAT MUSEUM! In addition to
his appearance in numerous comic books and trade paperbacks, the leader
of the Caffeine Cult Society has managed to pop up on numerous tie-in
products. This is the stuff that drives hardcore collectors crazy
trying to find! In this section of the Mr. Beat site, we are going to
take you through a visual journey of ice cool items that every fan
should aspire to possess at any cost. You'll find some real rarities
here as well as some long-standing favorites in the mix. Many of these
products were limited-edition creations and have sold out long ago.
Hopefully, this information will help you recognize them when you see
them so your joy can be complete. To the informed victor go the spoils.
We've tried like mad to include descriptions and images for every known
item, but nobody is perfect. So, if you find an odd Mr. Beat item that
isn't here in our museum, then let us know about it; and if it proves
to authentic, we'll add it in (and reward you with some swag for being
such an astute observer!). We've also tried to categorize items and
list them in order of market appearance. Please forgive and correct us
if you know better. Thanks and enjoy!
COMIC BOOKS AND
PAPERBACKS: These items can be found in our COMICS section,
where each book is listed by the year in which it was issued.
COFFEE MUGS: If there was
ever a more appropriate product to have Mr. Beat adorn, we don't know
about it...yet! Way back in 1994 CHRIS YAMBAR joined forces with Ad
Specialist MARIANNE EARNEST and formed a small mug company called TWO
FUN! The company was created to capitalize on the incredible growth of
the coffeehouse boom that was sweeping across the western section of
civilization. In addition to planning a line of all-access novelty
mugs, the two decided to create a line of coffee mugs just for the
mainstream coffee drinker. Thus, the then unnamed Mr. Beat was born. It
was a full year later when he received his proper title and yet another
before he appeared in the historic MR. BEAT ADVENTURES #0 ashcan.
TWO FUN! debuted their original line of mugs and clothing with an
exclusive signing and underwriting by the PEABERRY'S COFFEE AND ICE
CREAM COMPANY in Boardman, Ohio, in February 1995. Within 6 months that
single outlet sold through the first 3 grosses of gold-rimmed coffee
mugs. Instant collector's items! (Oddly enough, Mr. Beat was created in
a completely different coffeehouse-on the second floor of the
infamously infamous THE BEAT COFFEEHOUSE in the heart of Youngstown,
Ohio, where he would appear on their products a few years later.)
Grosses of TWO FUN! "beatnik" mugs were produced and sold to retailers,
but soon the bottom fell out of the boom and the coffeehouse movement
topped off and bottomed out. It was a rocket ship rise and fall in
industry over-expansion. Even powerful niche magazines like CAFÉ
OLE bit the dust. In a whirlwind reading of the upcoming implosion, TWO
FUN! quickly dissolved and Chris went walking off with the balance of
the physical mug stock and complete ownership of his soon-to- be-famous
Chris hit the comic convention scene in 1996 and quickly made his way
through a warehouse load of microwave safe gold-rimmed Mr. Beat mugs
which he peddled across the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Since
then, he has issued several different styles of Mr. Beat mugs and plans
to keep this trend going as long as the brew needs a cauldron to be
sipped from, y'dig?!
The original gold rimmed TWO FUN! mugs came in 3 styles:
The first gold-rimmed mug had a wraparound BEATNIK CONGA LINE design
with the words "CAFFEINE CULT SOCIETY!" beneath it.
The second gold-rimmed design featured the famous "WILL CONFORM FOR
COFFEE" pose with the same image on both sides. This design was sold
heavily at COFFEEFEST '95 in Boston, MA, and is considered by many
collectors to be the first REAL Mr. Beat mug due to the appearance of
his image on the covers of the #0 ASHCAN EDITION and on the very first
cover of MR. BEAT ADVENTURES in 1996.
The third gold-rimmed mug featured a wraparound design with 3 naked
coffee angels holding dripping coffee pots with the words "IN BEAN WE
TRUST."(This design was retired in 1995, but the little coffee
angel,'Caffeinna,' went on do a cameo appearance in MR. BEAT ADVENTURES
#1 and play a pivotal part in BAMBEANO BOY #1, where she helped give
birth to Dippy the Biscotti Dog!)
Just for spite, and in honor of the nagging vexation for a sense of
completion, we're even going to include a set of images from the
gold-rimmed first-day TWO FUN! logo mug. It was, after all, the company
that birthed the image of the mighty beat. (Limited to 144 mugs)
As the gold-rimmed editions began to sell out in 1996, Chris issued an
unbanded mug with the original "BEATNIK CONGA LINE" image but with the
added text - "JOIN THE CULT!" These sold out by the end of that year.
The demand for more Mr. Beat muggage prompted Chris to rework and
reissue the original "WILL CONFORM" image in 1997. The figure image was
enlarged and had wraparound verbage that covered all the bases -
"CAFFEINE CULT SOCIETY CHARTER MEMBER! OBEY THE BEAN! JOIN THE CULT!"
and the Mr. Beat logo. A strange thing happened as these mugs were
being produced in that someone at the mug factory somehow felt
compelled to substitute the word "brain" for the word "bean". Only 144
of these misprints were created, but they went to good use by helping
to raise funds "to promote literacy."
In 1998 Chris teamed up with THE BEAT COFFEEHOUSE and put out a
purple-on-white image of Mr. Beat playing his bongos and holding out
the official "house-logo cup of coffee" for the viewer. The mug
features a wraparound design which also included the coffeehouse logo,
address, and the copy "The Birth Place of Mr. Beat! Obey the Bean!"
This design was strictly limited to 144 mugs and was sold out by year's
end. Only 72 of these mugs made it out of Youngstown, Ohio, and onto
the comic convention floor! Sometimes referred to as the "MR. BEAT
The 1999 mug design featured a walking Mr. Beat image with the letters
"W.W.M.B.D." beneath his feet on one side and the words "WHAT WOULD MR
BEAT DO? OBEY THE BEAN. JUST BREW IT!" on the other. This was an
obvious play on the "What Would Jesus Do?" (WWJD) wristband craze of
that year. From the look of it, Jesus would have bought several of
these mugs, because they were gone by the end of 2000!
In 200, Mr. Beat celebrated his 10th anniversary and received high
honors by being showcased on the KEROUAC FEST '04 event mug! The mug
featured the walking Mr. Beat image in the official "MR. BEAT. 1994 -
2004. CELEBRATING 10 YEARS OF TOTAL COOLNESS!" logo circle above the
words "KEROUAC FEST '04: A BEAT ODYSSEY. GRAND MIDWAY HOTEL. SPECIAL
GUEST DAVID AMRAM." Only 300 mugs were created for this special beat
weekend. These are rare and wonderful items indeed and must-have items
for any true fan and follower of authentic beat culture!
