Mascot Smackdown: Sailor Jack and Bingo

They say a boy's best friend is his dog, and this tag team has been proving it since 1918. They're a little sweet, a little nutty, and have plenty of pop. It's Sailor Jack and Bingo!

Weapons: Hands, feet, claws, teeth

Special Power: Bingo-Blockade- A salute from Jack sends Bingo into a frenzy of barking and jumping, keeping opponents at bay and distracted while Jack pelts them with sticky Cracker Jacks.

Weapons: fangs, sharpened fingernails.

Special Power: Choco-Bite- Count Chocula has large glands filled with sugary chocolate, which he injects into his opponents with lightning-quick bites, eventually dropping them into sugar-induced comas.

Weapons: Flippers, Tail

Special Power: Sorry, Charlie: Charlie's extreme lack of self-esteem causes his opponents to feel sorry for him, often throwing the match just to make him feel better.
