TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Sparky, the pitchfork-toting mascot of the Arizona State University Sun Devils, has gotten a facelift.

The mascot's new look was developed as a collaborative project between the university and The Walt Disney Company.

The new-look mascot will make its on-field debut at the spring football game in April.

The ASU-Disney connection dates to 1946 when the first Sparky the Sun Devil was drawn by Disney artist, Berk Anthony.
