The Planet Money ‘Toxie’ character was adopted by NPR as a mascot for the mortgage crisis, and this educational video clip effectively describes how this snuggly fur figure contributed to the housing bust. The adorable creature has been used in jest to relieve the despondency of the mass misfortune of the demonic character of the economic downturn.

The cute and cuddly toxic asset known as the Planet Money ‘Toxie’ has been buried, as this video reveals. Knocked off by one of America’s most detrimental housing breaks, the ailing cartoon character has been declining in recent months. Though some may miss her guileless gaze, I'm sure society will be better off without her.
