Wolves’s next opponent Everton’s mascot, Changy the Elephant, is inventively named after their main sponsor ‘Chang Beer’.Â There may be a reason he’s an elephant, but I wasn’t interested enough to find out.Â If anyone knows, answers on a postcard to the usual address please.Â He replaced the much more idiosyncratic ‘Mr Toffee’.Â Touchingly, Mr Toffee’s creators, Freeborns, tell us on their website that “unfortunately the original brief forgot to tell us that the character needed to be able to play football as well as ‘walk on’.”
Name: Changy the Elephant
Pun Value: 0
Weirdness factor: 2
Overall mascotspotter rating: 2.5/10
Trivia:Â Changy was recently spotted prancing around with that weird guy from Pineapple Dance Studios (amazingly self-promoting Sky clip below).Â I’m not really in a position to reproach him for these antics, however, as a certain Wolves mascot (not me, of course, but the actual Wolfie) can also be seen getting in on the action.
