Flat Bucky traveling with alumni.

Who’s known for wearing red and traveling the world? If you said Carmen San Diego, you wouldn’t be wrong. But think a little closer to home. A little taller, perhaps. And a little … furrier?

As a good-looking Badger with a passion for fashion (come on, just look at that striped sweater!), he brings along an outfit for every occasion.
