Official mascot of the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow. Mishka was an adorable little bear, and was depicted on posters, pins, and other souvenirs as dancing gleefully.

Unfortunately, much of the world never got to know Mishka, because the 1980 Olympics were boycotted by many nations, in retaliation for the USSR's horrific invasion of Afghanistan late the previous year.

Sorry, Mishka.
