In the commercial, manager Frank Robinson yells at Doba to “never, ever touch me again.” It would pale in comparison to his treatment from the home nine and opposing teams.nn”There were players along the way who didn’t like the idea of a mascot.

He’s had a long career, traveling and performing wherever he may be. He and his wife — who make up the vaudeville duo Dik and Mitzki — aren’t performing publicly because of health issues during the pandemic, but are uploading to their YouTube channel and run Showbiz Quebec.
