Morgan Kohl | 5 comments About a foot wide, rectangular. I remember the cover being black, like the edges of a TV screen. I'm going to say late 80s early nineties.

It was about several animal mascots for real-life brands. I think one was the Izod alligator? Definitely an alligator/croc, and likely also the Bic penguin. I think another was the mascot for a TV station I didn't recognize, hinting that it was a European book. They lived in a TV studio. I remember very little about the story, except that it was pretty melancholy.

Morgan, did this nonfiction book include non-animal mascots (e.g., What a Character!: 20th Century American Advertising Icons by Warren Dotz)?

Is the book written for adults, teens, or children?

It's a children's picture book, not nonfiction.

Have you tried searching Worldcat.org? It's helpful for finding old children's books.

Tried several times. Different combinations of 'animals advertising television' or 'crocodile penguin'. Nothing.

Google books, I searched for izod alligator "children's books" and it was mentioned in "Children's books from other countries".

Wow. I'd tried every variation of the search terms and always came up with nothing. Thank you so much!
