He debuted in 1974, as a friend of Smokey Bear. Woodsy had huge creepy eyes, and a wacky Robin Hood-like suit. He was on a mission to help us fight pollution. His slogan was "Give a Hoot, Don't Pollute!"

He also had a song, more like a jingle:

"Never be a dirty bird in the city, or in the woods,
help keep America looking good *HOOT HOOT*"

The goal was to get the country clean in time for the bicentennial.
