Roadtrip-'62 ™ is also proud to be an affiliate of Lone Star Comics, Inc. In case you wonder, even our retail partners have stood the test of time.

You can see one of their earliest mail order ads, or better yet, visit the store and buy some of your favorite comics from 1962 or any other year.

Smokey Bear is the longest running public service ad campaign in Ad Council history, running since 1944. At the beginning, Walt Disney loaned Bambi for use on a poster for one year, but that image proved so popular that it is still being used. The original message was slightly different, as "Only You Can Prevent Forest Fires." I hope you enjoy this ad, similar to what you might have seen in 1962, and heed Smokey's message.
