Due to the kind support of so many, the old papier-mache
Mr. Bingle that for years was displayed on the landmark
Maison Blanche building on Canal St. was the new exhibit for
the 2005 holiday light show at City Parks' Celebration in the
Oaks, the place he now proudly calls "Home."

Mr. Bingle, the Audubon Zoo Alligator


In January 2002, Associated Press reported that Burlington Resources, Inc, an oil
and gas company, donated all (12 to be exact) of the white alligators in existence to the Audubon Institute. These gators, known as leucistic alligators, with blue eyes and ivory scales are not albinos. They are 8-9 feet long and cannot be housed in the open pond with other alligators as green algae would cover their white scales which are also susceptible to developing freckles in the sun. The gators all have names, by the way. I was informed by a member of the swamp staff at the Aububon Zoo that one of the white gators was intentionally named after the blue-eyed snowman on Canal St. - his name is Mr. Bingle!

Southern Yat Club Newsletter

Gone, but Not Forgotten:

The last home of Mr. Bingle, Dillard's in Clearview, former Maison Blanche
or MB's is in the process of becoming a Target. We doubt they will carry
on the Mr. Bingle tradition as Dillard's had. Christmas will be somewhat lacking
this year.

"Jingle, jangle, jingle,
no more Mr. Bingle".
