Technically, Sparky the Dragon might be considered a league-switching mascot as he currently represents both the New York Islanders and New York Dragons.

Where does this line about the "dry cleaning" come from?[edit]

There's no citation for it in any articles. Yes, Youppi may have been dirty/worn, but inside a Wikipedia article isn't a place to joke about it. -- Rcharman, 10 October 2005, 1:24 pm

Mascot Hall of Fame[edit]

The article says that a lot of people believe that Youppi! was inducted into the Hall of Fame. First of all, 3 mascots (the San Diego Chicken, the Phillie Phanatic, and the Phoenix Suns Gorilla, Go) were inducted into the Mascot Hall of Fame in its inaugural class in 2005. They are officially members of the Mascot Hall of Fame. Youppi!, however, was not inducted into the Mascot Hall of Fame. The costumes for Youppi!, the Phillie Phanatic, and the San Diego Chicken are on display in the Baseball Hall of Fame, but they are not members. Carter Somerville 18:19, 2 November 2005 (UTC)

Jim Henson connection?[edit]

Didn't Jim Henson have something to do with the creation of Youppi? I think I read about this in the news once...

Youppi! was designed by Bonnie Erickson, formerly a designer for Jim Henson, and the designer of Miss Piggy, Statler & Waldorf and other Muppet characters — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:45, 4 November 2014 (UTC)


Can anyone put a picture of Youppi up that isn't copyrighted, maybe from their own personal collection? Ikki the Fox Breeder 06:27, 6 January 2007 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:40, 22 February 2008 (UTC)


This crack-addicted Muppet tore my Reds hat off my head and threw it when I was about nine. What a horrible fucking thing to do to a little kid. I cannot believe the Canadiens hired him. They therefore support child abuse, and you should boycott them,

Yippee! or Hooray! in French ?[edit]

From where come this information ? - Khayman (contact) 13:30, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

Tried to fix it - I read it initially like you did, that the mascot was called Yippee by French Canadians. Article was actually trying to say the Youppi meant Yippee, in French. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:19, 15 September 2010 (UTC)
