Then in 2011, the company created a second bunny character named Schnffelienchen (Snuggelina) who is Snuggle's girlfriend and even had songs of her own. That same year the company started releasing Audio CD's currently only available in Germany that stars the duo on various adventures and are actually voiced by different voice actors and aren't high pitched like they usually are.

** The Apple adverts in Britain featured David Mitchell and Robert Webb as the PC and the Mac respectively. They have been quite unpopular, and have raised questions about the duo's credibility. Not least because, like the US adverts, while Webb is the ostentatiously cool character, Mitchell generally comes across as the more down-to-earth and likeable (this is despite him often playing the role of an unapologetic quasi-intellectual). While hosting ''HaveIGotNewsForYou'', Webb explained to Ian that he had played the smug unbearable one whose product you were meant to buy, while Mitchell had all the fun lines and he was meant to be despised. He described it as a 'confused campaign'.

** They have recently (very recently) brought him back, this time played by Debi Derryberry from ''Manga/ZatchBell'' and TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutronBoyGenius.
* Michelin tires are hawked by Bibendum, a strange white bulbous fellow who looks like a cross between the Mummy and the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man.
** In the original ads, crank down the cute and crank ''up'' the creepy to ''at least'' eleven. Also, ''bibendum'' is Latin for "drink". "Strange" is putting it mildly.
*** It's an extended metaphor: The idea was that Michelin's tires could "drink in" road hazards such as broken glass and pieces of metal without harm.
*** Also, the company publishes a line of restaurant guides for travelers: http://www.michelintravel.com/michelin-guides/

* The University of Oregon managed to work a deal with Disney to use DonaldDuck as their mascot.

* The University of Oregon managed to work a deal with Disney to use DonaldDuck as their mascot. The official relationship started with a handshake agreement between Walt himself and the university, and was later formalized in 1973, though Disney imposed limits on where the costumed mascot could be used. In 2010 the deal was modified, with Oregon changing the duck costume (notably the head) to no longer resemble Donald, allowing The Oregon Duck to appear at more events.
This list shows the last 10 events of 54. Show all.
