Purple Hippo Muncie

The Purple Hippo graphic by Muncie Map Co. is a nostalgic tribute to a beloved icon of Muncie, Indiana. For over two decades, a life-size purple fiberglass hippopotamus graced the side of McGalliard Road, advertising a pet store that has since closed down. The hippo was a familiar sight for Munsonians, who grew up riding down McGalliard with their parents and being delighted by the cheerful creature.

The Purple Hippo graphic captures the essence of that joyous childhood memory. The design is a bold and simplified side view of a purple hippopotamus, with the word "Muncie" in white letters. The graphic has become a symbol of the city, embraced by residents as a source of local pride.
