MR. PEANUT

Mr. Peanut was created by 13 year-old Antonio Gentile in a logo contest held by Planters in 1916.  He won the grand prize of $5.00.  His drawing of a peanut person with arms and crossed legs was refined by a professional illustrator who added the top hat, monocle, white gloves and cane.
