Vancvouer finally gets its 2010 Olympic mascots!


I could seriously die of cute overload here.  Are these not the cutest mascots you’ve ever seen?  Oh man.  It’s kind of hard to find photos of these dudes online because they were just released yesterday, but I think this one does them justice.


Miga is a young sea bear who lives in the ocean with her family pod, out past Vancouver Island near Tofino, British Columbia. Sea bears are part killer whale and part bear. Miga is part Kermode bear, a rare white bear that only lives in British Columbia.

Quatchi is a young sasquatch who comes from the mysterious forests of Canada. Quatchi is shy, but loves to explore new places and meet new friends. Although Quatchi loves all winter sports, he’s especially fond of hockey. He dreams of becoming a world-famous goalie.

 Sumi is an animal spirit who lives in the mountains of British Columbia. Like many Canadians, Sumi’s background is drawn from many places. He wears the hat of the orca whale, flies with the wings of the mighty thunderbird and runs on the strong furry legs of the black bear.

 The only thing that could have made it more awesome is if there was a pug involved, but pugs generally aren’t all that althetic, and really have nothing to do with Vancouver, but I can dream, can’t I??

    So cute…kinda unusual since Olympic mascots seem to be kinda cheesy…just love these guys. But I agree a little pug would be cute and so would a little boston terrorist!!!

    Hey, were these designed by the same people who drew Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends? They look great.
