Philadelphia’s Drunk Muppet Uncle

Great read on Gritty’s success from Bleacher Report.

Great article from Abbey Mastracco (@AbbeyMastracco) on Gritty. She talks about the quick turn from hatred to passion in Philly.

A social media chirp at the Pittsburgh Penguins and a comical debut just fueled the fire. But the more Gritty was criticized, the more the residents of the Philadelphia area and Flyers fans pushed back. 

He might look like a drunk uncle come to life in muppet form, but he was their drunk uncle muppet. 

Abbey also pokes at the social team behind his on-line success and how Gritty excelled in the pandemic with lots of planning and prep.

Great read to get under the fur of this mascot sensation.  Check it here.
