* ''Anime/AzumangaDaioh'': During one of the culture festivals, the girls make a cat costume to serve as the mascot. [[HugeSchoolgirl Sakaki]] wears it much of the time, although Tomo steals it at one point, and [[spoiler:Mr. Kimura gets into it somehow]]. It's normally pretty cute, but when [[TokenMiniMoe Chiyo-chan]] wears it...

ZigZagged in RealLife; Cracked listed it as [[http://www.cracked.com/article_19308_6-silly-sounding-jobs-that-are-way-harder-than-you-think.html a job that's harder than it looks.]] These mascot costumes can weigh up to thirty pounds -- not including the giant bobblehead -- can reach temperatures of up to 113 degrees or higher, and seriously restrict the wearer's ability to see and hear (leading to accidents and injuries). As a result, unskilled labor such as clerks or garbage collectors are rarely asked to wear them, and are instead usually assigned to people who are already fairly coordinated and in good health - in a lot of cases they're actually ''[[BadassAdorable security guards]].'' Do ''not'' mess with them.

A subtrope of BadJobWorseUniform. Compare BurgerFool, SuckECheeses, PlayingATree. [[IThoughtItMeant Is not]] necessarily a suit made to look like [[{{WesternAnimation/Goofy}} Goofy]]. Don't confuse with [[TackyTuxedo a literal suit that looks goofy]].

* ''Anime/FullMetalPanicFumoffu'': Sousuke [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7p69InNS-j0 steals one]] to covertly protect Kaname from some hooligans, and ends up having to flee from security without taking it off. Over the course of the series, he keeps fiddling with it until he ends up with a BadassAdorable [[VideoGame/CallOfDutyAdvancedWarfare COD:AW]]-eque suit of PowerArmor that tanks small arms fire - but can only say "Fumoffu"(though wearers can understand each other perfectly), and even ''he'' [[BlackBox doesn't know why]]. He tries selling them, but a SWAT team from Miami are the only takers - though they're happy with them, too.

* In ''Comicbook/{{Empowered}}'', the titular heroine's original day job is wearing an elephant suit with a backwards baseball cap to advertise a department store, Value Mammoth. People make fun of her all day long, but she still finds it mildly preferable to wearing her too-revealing super-suit.

* In the early 1980s, a story arc in ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'' had Charlie Brown getting hustled into being the Pelican mascot for Peppermint Patty's baseball team. She won't even let him take the costume off between games, because that would mess with his ability to "think pelican...be pelican!" Marcie begs him to take it off "if not for your sake, then for someone who likes you." (Sally: "Kiss her, you blockhead!") Charlie Brown, of course, ends up wearing the costume until a wild ball beans him. (This arc was adapted into a segment of the SaturdayMorningCartoon ''The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show''.)

* The whole "theme park mascot gets abused by the kids" trope is a bit of a {{Tokusatsu}} RunningGag. It got parodied in ''Series/HikoninSentaiAkibaranger'', which saw a MonsterOfTheWeek resembling a mascot being mocked in just such a way.

* Pete, one of the main characters in ''[[Series/ScreamQueens2015 Scream Queens]]'' has to wear one of these because of his job as the school's mascot, the Red Devil. After the murders start, he loses his job (since owning the suit makes him a suspect) and he's replaced by someone dressed as a large ice cream cone. [[spoiler: Well, until Coney was murdered...]]

* In ''Dave Barry's Only Travel Guide You'll Ever Need'' (by Creator/DaveBarry, natch), it says that Walt Disney World enforcement puts people in the Goofy suit as punishment for breaking the rules -- like trying to leave Walt Disney World (which is strictly forbidden) or not having a sufficient mood of childlike wonderment.

* ''Anime/FullMetalPanicFumoffu'': Sousuke steals one to covertly protect Kaname from some hooligans, and ends up having to flee from security without taking it off. Over the course of the series, he keeps fiddling with it until he ends up with a BadassAdorable [[VideoGame/CallOfDutyAdvancedWarfare COD:AW]]-eque suit of PowerArmor that tanks small arms fire - but can only say "Fumoffu", and even he [[BlackBox doesn't know why]]. He tries selling them, but a SWAT team from Miami are the only takers - though they're happy with them, too.
