Mascot
    (1992-1996)
    Non descript Mascot of the Atlanta Olympics (1996)
    Replaced Cobi, the Barcelona Olympic mascot
    Created by John Ryan
    Original name was 'Whatizit'
    Wears a size 22 shoe, doesn't speak and usually gives a thumbs up
    Star of the video 'Izzy's Quest for the Olympic Rings'
    He is one of the least popular mascots in history.
    He is named Izzy so people would ask 'What is he?'
    He resembled the cookie monster gone awry.
    When first unveiled, some of the writers describe him as 'Road kill,' 'A mutant monstrosity,' 'A bad marriage of the Pillsbury Doughboy and the ugliest California Raisin' and 'A genetic experiment gone horribly, ghastly wrong.'
    Although 12 U.S. firms bid to design Izzy, a Canadian firm won the contract.
    He was not allowed to attend the opening ceremonies.
    Because of trademark infringements, children could not wear hats with companies like 'Nike' name on them, if they took a picture with Izzy.
    Kids actually took to Izzy.
    Peddlers estimate sales of $¼ billion dollars.
    He was redesigned by a focus group of children.
    He had his own web page.
