For many years you have seen the Chiquita Banana logo on bananas but did you know that it was created by Dik Browne? I was not aware of this fact till I read the latest magazine Hogan’s Alley. Can you believe it, the logo is almost 80 years old.
The company mascot “Miss Chiquita”, now Chiquita Banana, was created in 1944 by Dik Browne, who is best known for drawing the popular comic strips Hi and Lois and Hägar the Horrible. Miss Chiquita started as an animated banana with a woman’s dress and legs.
