I'd recently done a video on the TI-99's most iconic characters and thought it would be fun to get some opinions of folks here on who the best mascot for the system is.

The obvious choice is obvious.

The Wumpus in the lead by a nose so far.  Can't disagree with the choice. 

 

 

Sure, Mario's fun

But how could you not fall in love with that smile?

I think stick figure guy shows up in the most games. 

 

Bigfoot, Tennis, midnight mason... The smaller rendition shows up in at least a half dozen other games...

As much as it pains me to say it...  We do not have one.  We have the Texas flag with the embedded i. 

Parsec is our best game, but it's not a mascot.  Munchman is a mushy mess and I'm ashamed to have that.

Other systems used a cartoon of a character, like Mario, rather than the pixelated game version. We should also consider the versions on the game manual.
