New Look For Pee Dee The Pirate

After several weeks of sneak peaks running on the Jumb-o-tron at home football games, the new Pee Dee the Pirate was unveiled Saturday at ECU’s Homecoming game against Marshall.

Fans have seen video clips of Pee Dee at places including the doctor's office or the Murphy Center. The underlying theme has been, "Pee Dee, you got to get in shape." The new Pee Dee is just that: a buffer version of the beloved pirate mascot with new clothes. Pee Dee 2008 is also tanner then the previous version and sports an ear-to-ear grin.

What do you think of the new look Pee Dee?

    The new Pee Dee look is awful. The only "fear" he strikes is that of being hysterically insane. If modifications were thought necessary, couldn't they have been better thought out. Bring back the real Pee Dee, and imprison his crazy cousin!

    I think Pee Dee looks ridiculous. We are not the "Smiley Pirates" or "Happy Pirates" or "Cheesy Pirates." We are the ECU Pirates, Arrgh! With this new Pee Dee on the sidelines, people will be too busy laughing to cheer. I am all for being happy. I love to laugh and have fun as much as possible. I think though, that this ned mascot looks silly. He doesn't exactly make me want to stand up and cheer on my team.

    No!!! I don't like it! Doesn't look much like a Pirate should. Doesn't strike fear, well, maybe our opponents will lose to a laugh attack.

    I think the new look is awful!I think PeeDee should go back to his good ol'self. The old look is appealing to children of all ages. I think we are setting ourselves up for more joking. Most everyone that I have spoken to about they think the new look is AWFUL!!!! Please change him back. We love PeeDee (the old look!)!!!!!

    PEE DEE....that's one pirate with a horrible suntan burn. But he's obviously the only pirate in history that went to a dentist....nice choppers!

    Why are the old stories coming back up for people to comment on?

    I like the old Pee Dee better. Perhaps if the fans would have been given a vote, we would have helped this process before a new Pee Dee was chosen. The new one is just too creepy for me.
