A logo is a very important asset to any brand, but what sometimes really makes it stand out is a friendly mascot. Some of them are with the companies from the very initiation of the business and some come along over the years, creating that special touch in branding. The mascots change over the years, anything from slight touch-ups to completely successful revamps or occasionally spurring a ‘why tho’ reaction.

Bored Panda selected a few mascots from popular companies to compare the now-and-then looks of these now-iconic symbols. Some of them might take you down memory lane and a few new ones might make you look twice. Share in the comments whether you think the older or newer versions are better!

The mascots make their respective brands really easily recognizable and become a part of the product or service itself. The responsibilities that land on designers’ laps can be immense as, at the point of refreshing the recognizable icon and giving it a facelift, they can be facing quite a vast audience that sets the bar high. The expectations vs reality do not always balance out, but when the result exceeds it all, it can definitely be rewarding.

Both boxes are old. Trix no longer have different shapes, just circles now

New is visually fun for young kids. The old has a very cool retro vibe. He’s calm rather than manic.

I always felt sorry for this poor Rabbit. Did he ever get to eat any Trix or did those brats deny him the only thing he ever wanted?

Old one is cute .. the new one looks like he's eaten nothing but sugar (+ maybe some amphetamines) for 7 weeks -scary

It's also interesting how different the actual cereal is. When I had them as a kid they were already fruit shaped but not multicolored.

their slogan was "breakfast is the most important meal of the day" so it isn't true, only marketing
