The Atlanta Braves revealed their new mascot Blooper to much fanfare last month at SunTrust Park.

Fans had mixed reactions to Blooper, who resembles a tamed version of the Phillies’ Phanatic.

Blooper is not the Braves’ first fuzzy creature.

In between Chief Noc-A-Homa and Homer -- the friendly baseball-headed mascot Blooper replaced -- the Braves have featured a couple of amorphous crowd pleasures.

The Braves’ Bleacher Creature was a shaggy green creature who walked around Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium with a large Braves hat bringing fans cheer. Rally -- a red, fuzzy character  with a mohawk -- was introduced to Atlanta fans in 1986. His trademark zany antics made him a natural for camera-toting fans.
