Cincinnati Reds Mascot

A fun photo stop, sitting on a bench with the Cincinnati Reds baseball mascot, Redlegs, in front of the Reds' stadium.

Redlegs' bulging eyes and walrus mustache were clearly inspired by old-time comedian Jerry Colonna, best known today for his occasional appearances in 1940s Looney Tunes cartoons.
