SuperFrog (1979-1999)

In 1979, TCU athletic promotions director John Grace created SuperFrog as part of a campaign to promote “Frog Fever” on campus and in the surrounding community. Grace wanted a mascot that would help create a fun atmosphere at sporting events.  The Daily Skiff reported that “Frog Fever” transformed TCU's mascot from a “mild-mannered cardboard box to the new ‘SuperFrog’ that looks like a cross between a TCU linebacker and the monster in the movie ‘Alien’.”
