1968 Yogi the Bear Anti-Smoking PSA

In this PSA from 1968 Yogi and Boo Boo discuss the vice of smoking and why it is so cool. Okay, they are a lot more anti-smoking in this PSA than that. They basically say that people who are smokers started before people knew it was bad and now people start because those people are doing it already. So why not them!

They then shift into trying to shame people who lack willpower into quitting.

I wonder if the cigarette they stomp out in the beginning was dropped by Fred Flintstone?
