The American Cancer Association figured the best way to stop teenagers from smoking would be to create Public Service Announcements featuring lovable cartoon characters.
Statistically, young folks are still smoking. Yul Brenner created a somber PSA before he died. And now, we lost Leonard Nimoy to COPD, attributed to his former smoking habit.
Whether or not this cartoon has any affect on the rate of young smokers… it is still fun to watch. Especially, the guy who literally coughs his head off.
