Advertising Mascot In Search Of A Product

We're living in tough economic times. Even advertising mascots are feeling the pinch. Grunkdon here's ready and willing to be the official mascot of a product. Any product. Seriously. He doesn't care. Cereal, fast food, laundry detergent. Heck, he'll even hawk hemorrhoid cream.

I used to love all the animated advertising mascots of the 1960s and 1970s such as the Raid Bugs, Quisp and Quake. I used to spend hours trying to draw the characters I'd see in commercials. They don't seem to use advertising mascots so much anymore. Too bad.

  1. He's too cute to be out of work! I hope he finds something soon. Maybe "Spike Oil', to keep your back spikes in peak condition rain or shine :)
