U.S. Forest Service poster encouraging people to help prevent forest fires and featuring art of Bambi, Thumper, and Flower from the Walt Disney cartoon "Bambi". Disney allowed the USFS to use the characters from his recently released feature film for U.S. Forest Service public service campaigns like this one, but he only gave them a one-year contract. So there are some wonderful public service posters like these, which use Disney's Bambi, but they are only from 1942 or 1943, and they are extremely rare. Beginning in 1944, the Forest Service issued a poster featuring "Smokey Bear”; over the next decade Smokey would change in appearance as the artist who drew him changed, and he would get the slogan "Remember! Only you can prevent forest fires", and eventually, he became "Smokey the Bear"
