from wikipedia:
Knut became the center of a mass media phenomenon dubbed "Knutmania" that spanned the globe and quickly spawned numerous toys, media specials, DVDs, and books.[3] Because of this, the cub was largely responsible for a significant increase in revenue, estimated at about five million euros, at the Berlin Zoo in 2007.[4] Zoo attendance figures for the year increased by an estimated 30 percent making it the most profitable year in its 163-year history.[5]
