Denmark’s Best Mascot is a new original game show like you have never seen it before: Sports disciplines meet reality; passionate fighting spirit meets fluffy cuteness; outrageous competitions meet dedication from another world.
Usually you see the mascots representing different cities’ sports clubs, cheering from the side line, but now it’s time to put the mascots in focus letting them be the athletes. They can run, jump, dance and entertain. But who will succeed in becoming Denmark’s best mascot?
Throughout the seven episodes, mascots from different leading Danish sport clubs are competing against each other, hoping to become Denmark’s best mascot. Each week one mascot is eliminated from the programme and in the end there will be only one mascot remaining – the winner.
The mascots compete in various disciplines – disciplines defining the good mascot, such as strength, fastness, motor skills etc. This includes elements such as “Catch the Streaker” where the mascots chase naked people, or the “VIP Segway Race” where the mascots must balance and serve champagne to the sport VIP’s in a table set maze, or being the fastest one driving on motorized toilettes in hope of winning the half time-entertainment.
All of this is happening within a realistic sports frame where the mascots are all representing real clubs, and the disciplines are a battle of life or death. All programmes are covered like real sport events in TV implying super slow cameras, field reports, and reference to the biggest sport battles throughout the world.
The format includes lots of humor, alliances, seriousness, dedication and characters you are going to you love. It’s a battle between wolves, bears, ducks and swans. Some of the mascots have wings instead of hands, some have giant feet, and some can barely see anything in their mascot costume. Common to all of them is their will to fight and to bring glory to their respective clubs.
Wearing a silly costume just got serious.
