Oski cartoon

Before he had a name, Oski in 1940 was a character in Daily Cal art editor Warrington Colescott’s sports page cartoons. Created as a funny loser, the bear was thwarted each week by rivals as he pursued young Rosy Bowl, but he never gave up. In 1941, Colescott would name and help craft masks for the three-dimensional Oski, a mascot to cheer up fans of the struggling football team. (Photo courtesy of Oski Committee)
