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.
