Trash It

Did the City of Philadelphia really have a cartoon mascot, for its recycling programs, named Curby Bucket? And did they really keep going with it after the untimely death of Kirby Puckett? I can understand doing that, maybe, if they had the cooperation of Kirby and/or his surviving relatives- and if Kirby had actually, as he considered doing in the early '90s, signed with the Phillies.

Curby Bucket was brought up by ALOTT5MA in reaction to the introduction of another winner, "G-Hog the Rapping Groundhog," who I guess is supposed to get people interested in health careers. See the ad for yourself here; I guess G-Hog now becomes Pennsylvania's Third-Most Famous Groundhog.
