Gus originally debuted with the PA lottery in 2004 but in what they described as a way to tap new marketing segments, Gus was removed from all marketing.
But by popular demand, the lottery has brought Gus back and will be appearing in holiday season advertising.
Hints that Gus was returning began last week on the PA Lottery's Twitter Account when they began posting Gus with postcards from around the state.
We received a postcard from Harrisburg. Look who has arrived in town. https://t.co/P1mbwok3iC pic.twitter.com/bp7vyPBHpl— Pennsylvania Lottery (@PALottery) November 1, 2015
