Revenge of the Big Boy....(Mascots Late Post)

I always had this idea floating in my head and the Mascots Theme seemed ideal. Please pardon the tardiness....

They're Gr-r-reat!

I imagine Tony the Tiger may have looked like this when he was a cub.


I think my kids would be excited about basketball if the Jazz Bear looked more like Bear in the Big Blue House. Go Jazz!

Try 'em with Seaweed!

For my first Art Jumble post, I've decided to combine my love
for a certain desert island televison drama
with my love for decades-enduring cereal bowl elves.

Also, I have a riddle that I just made up:
Q: What are The Others' favorite breakfast cereal?

Thank you, thank you.

They're Drunkenly Fictitious

I don't know what's worse about this. The racism or the children engaging in alcoholism.


It was gonna be Snap, Crackle and Pop, but then Google drift happened while I was looking for some images to work from, and up came FrankenBerry.

Now here's the thing about being a Canadian...we watch a lot of American TV. So we see American commercials. (and it kinda bothers us sometimes to say that, I mean there's two whole continents that make up "America." Why does one country get the name?)

So we see lots of crap advertised that we can't get. We got Count Chocula, but never the rest of the cereal monster gang. And I've never gotten over it!

-Here is a Very angry Mr.Met...because the NY Mets are always on a losing streak!

Kewpie-chan (Japanese mayonnaise mascot)

If any of you have ever tried Kewpie brand mayonnaise (made in Japan), you will know IT IS THE BEST. Kewpie-chan is the baby doll type mascot of Kewpie. The Kewpie dolls have a sort of following here, they are sold in craft shops along with patterns for making tiny little boy and girl Kewpie outfits. I thought they would make for an interesting canvas...

Here's a mascot I made for an 60km Breast Cancer fund raiser walk that my fiance will be taking part in this September. She is currently fighting cancer and hopes to rise up to the occasion and conquer the 60km walk. This will hopefully be printed on t-shirt for their team this fall.

The Phoenix Suns Gorilla

The Phoenix Suns Gorilla put the smack down on the San Antonio Spurs' Robert Horry after he hip checked Steve Nash into the scorers table with :18 seconds to go in Game 4 of the NBA Western Conference Semi-Finals. Robert Horry's flagrant foul got him suspended without pay for two games but ended up being rewarded when the NBA also suspended two key Phoenix Suns players from playing in game 5 for leaving the "vicinity of the bench" during the chaos.

This Week's Theme is MASCOTS

Hello Jumblers.

For those of you that may not already, know this week's theme is MASCOTS. If ever you are unsure of what the theme is just look at the top of the page just below the main title.

Illustrate or redesign a popular mascot from commercials, college or professional sports teams, cereal boxes, etc. For example: CapN Crunch, Pillsbury Dough Boy, Geico Caveman, Ronald McDonald.

Have fun!
