I know you're refering to the XBMC codename, but I haven't found a info about the naming decision (probably to stupid to find it in the wiki).
Pretty sure it's Garden of Eden - so naked holding a leaf sould be apt.

Just put a fig leaf on him.
I could see a plush head of a mascot that hangs on your tv and peeks over like in that sketch below.

Quote:nice sketches, but the fishes are clearly inspired by "Finding Nemo" and for my taste to close to the originals. And every time I see a worm I have to think either about the games Worms or Earthworm Jim - although your's looks different. I'm eager for more to come.well actually I haven't even seen the Finding Nemo movie... but the character style has a disney (and don bluth) influence if that's what you're saying, so I assume you might be correct. I agree on the worm too, but I DID say those sketches have been discarded, they were just a quick share.

I can see Zappy working well for home menu items/backdrops (Movies, TV, Music etc) as well as genre icons. He sure is versatile (is it a he? maybe he needs a female partner - Being a mascot is such a lonely job).
Zappy is my fav but the standard of all the entries is really impressive.

Maybe also a snake wrapped around him and a apple in his hand.

He (I consider "it" to be male) could have a pet, like Ecksby

easiest would be to simply show a still image of the Garden of Eden on his display eyes

or make him hold an apple out and make his eyes look like they hypnotise you like the snake in disneys robin hood (tt0070608)
