The NFL’s Pro Bowl game rarely produces notable moments and is often just a glorified version of a touch football game.
However, a look back at the 1995 Pro Bowl unveiled something interesting. Many teams used new, bizarre mascots, and many of the mascots were never used again.
It’s unclear if every team had a mascot made specially for this Pro Bowl, but there are several for teams that don’t traditionally use a mascot during games.
A spokesperson for the NFL was unsure why the mascots were made or why they were only used once.
The Cleveland Browns mascot looked like a mix between Snuffleupagus from 'Sesame Street' and Rowlf the Dog from 'The Muppets.'
The Washington Redskins mascot was a bit disturbing and it is probably a good thing it was quickly retired.
A 'Mascot of the Year' award was given out during the game, although it is not clear if the one-time mascots were eligible or if they were the purpose of the award.
Of course, the mascots weren't the only bizarre costumes at the Pro Bowl. Here are the NFC uniforms being worn by Steve Young, Ricky Watters, and Deion Sanders.
