Directly from the North Pole, Kenneth the Blue Elf makes his way up the McDonald's Thanksgiving Parade route in 2010. During his trip, the Kodak camera in his hand took pictures that were posted live on Facebook. In 2009, Kenneth was presented by Best Buy.
Odie is from Jim Davis's comic strip Garfield and first appeared in 1978. Though it may not seem obvious, Odie is one of Garfield's best friends. In 2011 (pictured here), Odie was presented by New Holland Construction.
