Pelicans mascot debuts new look after 'broken beak' (Photo)

The New Orleans Pelicans mascot, Pierre the Pelican, has been given a makeover to make him more family friendly (and less scary to kids). Pierre will make his first appearance with the new look during All-Star Weekend.

In order to explain Pierre's new look, the Pelicans created a backstory of how he suffered a broken beak and concussion while playing basketball with some of the other NBA team mascots. 

After some extensive "surgery" and "rehabilitation", Pierre now sports a softer yellow beak instead of the bright red plastic beak he had before. 

You make the call:  Do you like Pierre the Pelican's new look?
