Sparky

  • 1951

    The original Sparky the Fire Dog. Kids could send in 25¢ to be part of Sparky’s Fire Department.

  • 1960's

    Sparky had his own song, "Help Spark-y the fire-dog! When you're care-ful, then your're real-ly smart; so never give fire a place to start!" Looks like this old dog wasn’t wearing a seat belt...yikes!

  • 1970's

    Sparky is larger than life. Imagine seeing him walking down the street.

  • 1980's

    Do those phones have cords? How did he dial with paws? Luckily there was always a phone booth around when super Sparky needed one.

  • 1990's

    Sparky and Smokey teamed up for outdoor fire safety. Looks like he is mellowing with age; are we seeing the softer side of Sparky?

  • 2000's

    This Sparky looks like he means business. There is no messing with him when it comes to fire safety.

  • 2011

    Our dog today. Still teaching kids and families how to stay safe from fire.

  • Today

    Sparky can dance and play the electric guitar. Today Sparky is busy appearing in numerous music videos spreading fire safety messages.
