Happy Birthday Smokey Bear

Happy birthday, Smokey Bear!

The beloved public service icon, known to many as "Smokey the Bear," turns 70 on Saturday

And you can bet with his mandate to educate people about preventing forest fires, he'll be the first to blow out his 70 candles!

He had a play date with the California bear on the steps of the state capitol building in Sacramento.

The two bears posed for pictures with the California state flag.

He was dreamt up by the US Forest Service, the national association of state foresters and the ad council.

His first public service poster came out on august 9th, 1944.

And his famous slogan,  "remember, only you can prevent forest fires," came later, in 1947.
