No matter how old you are, you can probably think of at least one or two brand mascots that you saw on TV when you were a kid. The Pillsbury Dough Boy. The Noid. Mr. Clean.
If you're a Millennial, you know that brands created mascots, and those mascots joined us for Saturday Morning Cartoons, ended up in our cereal boxes, and became our Happy Meal toys. Why was having a mascot so popular in the 80's and 90's? That's simple. A mascot is an excellent marketing tool that keeps an image (and even a slogan or song) in a child's head.
Seeing the mascot on a box or a grocery store display was an exceptional marketing ploy that attracted children from all walks of life. The marketing was done so well that even twenty or thirty years later Millennials can spot them from a mile away. If we couldn't name them off the top of our heads, we can identify them and say, "Oh yeah! That guy!" then sing that mascot's slogan.
If you think you know brand mascots, it's time to test your skills. Here are 40 mascots every millennial will know. Can you tell us what brand they're attached to?
