The Gatorade Company, Inc. is a brand of sports-themed beverage and food products, built around its signature line of sports drinks. Gatorade is currently manufactured by PepsiCo and distributed in over 80 countries. The beverage was first developed in 1965 by researchers at the University of Florida, to replenish the combination of water, carbohydrates, and electrolytes that the school's student-athletes lost in sweat during rigorous athletic competitions. Its name was derived from the collective nickname of the university's athletic teams, the Florida Gators.

Bugs Bunny and Marvin the Martian appeared in a 1998 Gatorade commercial with Michael Jordan.
