Smokey The Bear
Only you can prevent forest fires. Smokey the Bear (originally just called Smokey Bear) first uttered those words in 1944, and nearly sixty years later he's still keeping forests safe for everyone. This website chronicles the history of Smokey, and includes videos of vintage television commercials, original radio broadcast recordings, old posters, the story of the real bear that inspired the creation of Smokey, and just about everything else you wanted to know or see about Smokey the Bear but were afraid to ask. The videos in particular are fun to watch, and there's also a special kid's section that includes online games and all sorts of fun. I've always wondered about the history of Smokey the Bear and this website answers all of my questions and then some. Now if only someone would tell be how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll pop my life would be compete.
