Bambi, who first appeared in public service announcements promoting wildfire prevention in 1944, is featured in new PSA’s, including the image above and the 30-second video below.

We are pleased that Sam Elliot’s voice is still used at the end of the video, saying “Only you can prevent wildfires”. Mr. Elliot has been the voice of Smokey since 2008.

One thought on “Bambi returns to help prevent wildfires”

  1. How can they get away with saying “9 out of 10 wildfires are caused by humans” when in reality the vast majority of wildfires are started by lightning ???????
