Smokey Bear seems surprised that he has children in tow.  But chances are they’re his neice and nephew, that’s the story you always get in cartoons when single characters have kids visiting — even if you never knew that the character had siblings.

There’s a color version and faux-post version of the above image (scanned from a 1947 newspaper) on smokeybear.com’s history page.  Smokey’s official canon says he had a wife named Goldie and an adopted son named Little Smokey; I’m not finding any materials identifying these two cubs.
