For the next few weeks you'll be seeing plenty of the Beijing mascots "The Fuwa", but are they one of the best Olympic mascots of all time? Kidzworld has the answer.

#5. Hidi and Howdy

Hidi and Howdy Everybody says Canadian people are friendly, so the choice to have Hidi and Howdy be the official mascots of the 1988 Winter Olympic Games in Calgary, Canada was the easy choice. Hidi and Howdy are two smiling and friendly polar bears. Since Calgary is known as "Cowtown" because of its cowboy roots, the twin polar bears wore western style outfits. There is something about these two that makes you want to go up and hug them.



#4. The Fuwa

The Fuwa If you haven't noticed already, The Fuwa are the official mascots of these 2008 Beijing Games. There are five Fuwa's: Beinei, Jingjing, Huanhuan, Yingying and Nina. Each Fuwa represents a color in the five Olympic rings. The Fuwa's are very modern, unique and diverse. Jimjing is a panda while Yinying is a Tibetan antelope. The way they are designed are very in tune with Chinese culture.

 

 

#3. Izzy

Izzy The first thing you ask yourself when you see Izzy, the official mascot of the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, is, "what is he?" Well to be perfectly honest with you, we have no idea either! Izzy is a colorful character with a lot of pizzazz. He was the first mascot that was designed by a computer. While we don't know what it is, Izzy looks fun, outgoing and energetic. A perfect fit for the exciting city of Atlanta.

 

 

#2. Waldi

Waldi Waldi, the official mascot of the 1972 Munich Summer Olympics, was everything the '70s symbolized: colorful and vibrant. This dog possesses qualities which are mandatory in an athlete: resistance, tenacity and agility. While Waldi represents a lot of German qualities, we chose him because of how cute he looks. Everybody loves dogs and Waldi looks like one cuddly, colorful puppy.




#1. Cobi

Cobi Cobi, the official mascot of the 1992 Barcelona Games, was inspired by the style of legendary Spanish artist, Pablo Picasso. This sheepdog has a lot of flavor to it. Cobi looks like he could be a character in The Simpsons with his square head with the three hairs sticking out. He fits the artistic city of Barcelona perfectly and has a unique look that no mascots even to this day has. Cobi was so popular he even had his own TV series in Spain.
