    (November 23, 2014-September 18, 2016)
    Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
    Mascots for the 2016 Summer Olympic (Vinicius) and Paralympic (Tom) Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
    Vinicius, an anthropomorphic yellow animal
    Tom, an anthropomorphic plant
    They look like characters from an episode of the animated series 'Adventure Time.'
    When the Brazilian public was asked to vote on their names, the other choices were 'Oba and Eba' and 'Tiba Tuque and Esquindim.'
    To promote the mascots to children, they got their own animated series on Cartoon Network Brazil.
    Vinicius was named after legendary Brazilian poet, essayist, and playwright Vinicius de Moraes; Tom was named after musician Antonio Carlos 'Tom' Jobim.
    Vinicius's design is derived from the motions of cats, birds, and monkeys; Tom's design reflects the plants of Brazil's rainforests.
    You have to admit at least they are not as hideous as Izzy.
