For some of these mascots, I would assume some advertiser has made the argument "so outrageous that there's no way people will forget it." I can see both sides of that argument.

What animals are left that haven't yet been used as mascots for some product or another?

Can someone somewhere explain to me why anthropomorphizing stuff you're supposed to eat is a good idea? If you actually find the M&M characters cute, why would you express that by purchasing them and consuming them? Weird culture.

The current Mr. Peanut ads are even weirder since they suggest that a nutcracker attempting to crack a peanut is doing something inherently anti-social.

It takes you back to the Mad Hatter's teaparty in Alice in Wonderland, but at least they had the good taste to suggest that you couldn't eat something after you'd been introduced!
