Mascots[edit]

The Simpsons[edit]

The Simpsons have appeared in numerous commercials for C.C. Lemon. In Japan, The Simpsons are anecdotally better known for being featured in C.C. Lemon commercials than for their television show.[3] References to the yellow color of the Simpsons features heavily in the marketing.

In addition to the many television commercials, The Simpsons also appear on a wide range of merchandise for the product. The promotional items include 500 mL beverage holders, pens, coasters, magnets, lunchboxes, and foldable lawn chairs. The Simpsons also appeared on the 500mL bottles in their winter attire during the season of Christmas in 2001.

Mr. C.C. Lemon[edit]

The Simpsons family is not C.C. Lemon's only mascot.[2] The mascot, Mr. C.C. Lemon, greets people on the official website, and states he is "a sparkling guy who LOVES to make people laugh." He is a barrel chested white man, played by American actor Guy Totaro,[4] dressed entirely in yellow. On his legs, he wears yellow shorts, knee length yellow socks along with yellow high tops, and his top is a yellow T-shirt with the C.C. Lemon logo.
