CHARACTER WATCH

 

 

Johnny Horizon Character Watch

Johnny Horizon was first seen in 1968, and resembled the "Marlboro Man". Johnny Horizon was most recognized when he became the mascot for the Bureau of Land Management in their "anti-liter" campaign.  

This is a very low production and seldom seen character watch. We were only able to find one other Johnny Horizon watch on the Internet! It has a U.S. patent number of 2988870.

Hollywood stars flocked to Johnny Horizon right away. Celebrities like Cicely Tyson and Glen Campbell recorded TV and radio spots for him. Johnny Carson’s sidekick Ed McMahon, British folk group The New Seekers, and baseball greats Bobby Mercer and Elston Howard also recorded announcements. Comics like Red Buttons and Carol Burnett joined in the praises of Johnny Horizon as well.

 

Folk singer and actor Burl Ives quickly teamed up with Johnny Horizon, the Bureau of Land Management and the Department of the Interior to help spread his message. In a press conference in 1970, Burl Ives promised to “get Americans aware of, and caring for their environment.” Within a few years’ time, “countryside clean-ups” had spread to 40 states and 300,000 people were volunteering their time. Ives even commissioned songs to help spread the message. Together with singer Randy Sparks and the New Canaan Singers, he toured the country and gave free concerts—18 in all—while literally singing Johnny Horizon’s praises. And Ives spread the message that the people need to take care of their land.
