Hello Gonefishin! Thanks for checking in here. You're absolutely right about A & C. However, your guess for J is the Forest Service's OTHER mascot. So, you're very close! I almost put in a clue for Smokey the Bear regarding forest fires...but decided to go for the other one regarding pollution instead. Have another guess?

well, now I know not J.

Was it an owl saying "Give a hoot don't pollute". Don't know his name.

strem said...

Dani, you're correct on most. D & O are correct. E is BK...Burger King for those that didn't understand the initials. N (Mr. Peanut) is correct....but he also has that all-important monocle!

Gonefishin, you're correct about that owl. Hopefully, somebody will remember his name!

In the first section, we still need the answer to B. Second section, need all. Third section, need K L & M. Fourth section, need all. Keep the guesses coming!

B - Tucan Sam (Froot Loops)

Sandy-san said...

I think the owl was named Woody the owl.

strem said...

Very close, Sandy-san. It's Woodsy the owl! And, B now has the right answer with Toucan Sam! Keep guessing!

Sandy-san said...

K - eye glasses?

strem said...

Sandy-san, you are correct...Charlie Tuna did wear glasses - sometimes sunglasses. But, he usually wore something else on his head too!

Sandy-san said...

These are harder than I thought they would be. As much as I had seen these icons over my lifetime, you would think they were etched in my brain. *shrugging shoulders* I guess I should be happy that they aren't, though! =)

Piano Man said...

I don't know if I should get any extra credit when I haven't gotten any others correct, but I think the answer to P is a black cat.

Piano Man said...

I think the answer to R is Nipper from the RCA Victor ads.

strem said...

P is correct: a black cat.

R. "Nipper" did listen to "his master's voice" for RCA commercials.

Just to clear up K completely: Charlie Tuna wears a beret on his head.
