    Plaid Stallions Planet of the Apes trashcan by Cheinco



    So, I needed a trash can for my office, a kind of mundane task I guess but because my whole room is decked out in vintage stuff, I decided the can itself had to be vintage.


    It took me a while, mostly because the ones I kept finding were Hockey (I do live in Canada) or stuff like "Strawberry Shortcake" that really don't work for me.

    I finally settled on Planet of the Apes because 1) I like Planet of the Apes and 2) I had this in my room as a kid after finding it at a yard sale.

    So, lo and behold, my new garbage can, enjoy humans...

    Cool! As a kid I had a DC metal trash can, the same shape as that POTA one.

    Found a pic of it online:

    Nice! Those trash cans always got nasty and rusty and dented. I had a Snoopy one.

    I remember watching Reality Bites in the 90s and being impressed that they were clever enough to have Ben Stiller's character being protective of his Dr. Zaius statuette in his office. A trash can would've made more sense for a work environment.

    Nice! I dig the artwork. I love the human in the jail cell. Kind of looks like the GI Joe Intruder villain!

    I have that DC trashcan and the Superman The Movie one as well. They are fun display pieces.
