MARTY THE MASCOT

The 1950s were one of the most disturbing times in the history of Careyville, Illinois. Unsolved disappearances and an arson attack at a supper club led the city-wide investigation to Marty the Mascot. Marty worked as a very successful milkman. Everyone loved Marty, so much so that people used to wear masks with his face on them. There wasn’t a family in Careyville without one! However, times grew tough for everyone’s favorite mascot. Due to the convenience of grocery stores, his milk deliveries faded into obscurity. Marty sunk into a new level of desperation and began trying obnoxious ways of getting people to order his once-beloved milk. 

Eventually everyone became annoyed and angered with his over the top antics. To Marty’s contempt, he was dubbed “The Mascot Menace.” Marty knew that he needed to come up with a new plan to put his smile on everyone’s faces again. So he came up with an ALL NEW milk using the townspeople as the key ingredient! Strange disappearances began to take place, alarming the town’s residents.

In one last-ditch effort he threw a party at a local supper club to launch his ALL NEW “HIGH PROTEIN” MILK. Outraged people showed up at the party wanting the mascot out! The supper club mysteriously caught fire and “The Mascot Menace” hasn’t been seen since … until now. 

A large, cartoonish character was spotted once again, this time causing havoc in nightclubs throughout the country. He is believed to be traveling with an accomplished SKAM artist by the name of Jerzy. The two are believed to be extremely dangerous!

Don’t Worry, I WILL RETURN TO SEE YOU SMILE
