The Smokey Bear Song

The client was looking for an animation to introduce K-2nd grade classes to Smokey Bear and the basics of wildfire prevention. Inspired by the catchiness and timelessness of School House Rock, we set out to create an musical animation that introduces kids to Smokey and his story, and wraps the ideas that "wildfires are bad" and "only we can help" in a catchy, festive, and easily repeatable wrapper
