Did you know that the Looney Tunes were Magic Mountain's mascots during its first season (1971)? After the park was shut down for six months for a major renovation, it reopened in May 1972 with the trolls and Wizard as mascots, and they stayed till 1985 when the Looney Tunes returned.

 

And Knott's got the Peanut characters in 1983 when it opened Camp Snoopy.
