In the long ago as now, you could catch a furry icon promoting some product. Stateside in the 60’s, there was the memorable Esso tiger admonishing motorists to “Put a Tiger in Your Tank.” For a time, they even gave out promotional stuffed tiger tails that you could attach to your vehicle’s gas cap. This dude was awesome!

Tony the Tiger has been around since 1952. He beat out designs for a kangaroo, an elephant, and a gnu to become the Kellogg cereal mascot...that's right, a gnu! Originally a rather simplistic figure, Tony has undergone several evolutions to become what he is today. Better a cereal icon than a serial killer, I always say...

Back in the 50s and 60s, entire tv cartoon series were made up of cereal mascots such as Cornelius the Corn Flakes rooster on the Huckleberry Hound Show.Cornelius rooster.png
