Did Atari have an official mascot?
I think it might be Pacman, but then again i do not know which is why i am asking.

Pac-Man is a registered trademark of Namco-Bandia (known only as Namco back in the 80s). Balley had distributing rights to Pac-Man in North America, but they didn't own the character.
Atari had no mascot that I can recall. They may have used Pac-Man in promotional materials using the box art that they did have the right to use, but they didn't have the right to use Pac-Man in any other form beyond.
Atari had the license to develop and release Pac-Man on the Atari consoles from Namco.
