Must See! Smokey’s 75th Birthday!

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

America’s favorite forest firefighting bear turns 75 years old today.

To celebrate, Smokey the Bear’s official twitter handle is asking people to post videos of themselves singing “Happy Birthday” to him.

Smokey was created in 1944 when the U.S. Forest Service and Ad Council teamed up to create a mascot to spread their message.
