I would think that more of a possible Milton Bradley mascot, though, right?

 

I like the 10-gallon hat as a representative of Texas, but was Tombstone City that iconic?  It was included as the build example with Editor/Assembler, so maybe.

Chisholm trail with Texas logo.

 

But I have also seen a cartoon guy made out of a TI Joystick.  And a bouncing cow made out of a TI cimputer and joystick.  Not sure if I can find them back.

All games and characters named in the original poll and mentioned in my video:

Also, an alternate history where Bouncy and Bouncy's Obstacle Course exist in 1982, and TI lands Shatner, instead of Commodore:

Yes, Parsec, Munchman and Wumpus are the historical best native games only for our computer, all others are just nice games :)
But -Parsec- is Magic :)

The only bad thing about Parsec is that it is too easy. 😛

All of you are clearly wrong.

 

The clear and obvious choice is the cosmic space butt from the deluxe buttplug simulator.

Is it just me or is Parsec not full of cheap deaths? Especially from ships dropping down then running into you at ludicrous speed.
