Happy Birthday to Smokey the Bear!
Today is Smokey's birthday! He is over 70 years old now. He was about 20 when Rankin/Bass did this special with James Cagney, and George Petrie from the Honeymooners was the voice of the fox! DECADES has a segment on today, in their THROUGH THE DECADES and show a short clip of Jackson Weaver, the voice of Smokey for 45 years, who was the voice of Smokey in the Rankin/Bass Saturday morning cartoon series THE SMOKEY BEAR SHOW.
