Los Angeles, CA

The Rocky and Bullwinkle statue was based on the cartoon characters that appeared on TV from 1959 through the 1960s. Bullwinkle was a moose while Rocky was a flying squirrel. The 14 foot tall revolving statue was installed in 1961 in front of Jay Ward Productions' offices where the characters were developed. The statue was meant to poke fun at the revolving statue of a cowgirl promoting the Sahara Casino Hotel in Las Vegas which was installed directly across the street. The cowgirl came down around 1971 but Rocky and Bullwinkle remained until 2013. Just weeks after these photos were taken, the statue was removed for restoration. The fiberglass statue had many layers of paper mache and paint added to it over the years. The statue was restored to its original condition and look. In 2014, it was put on temporary display at the Paley Center in Beverly Hills. There were plans to install the statue in West Hollywood later in 2015. By 2017, the statue was still in storage.

Orange Moose
Black River Falls, WI
Orange Moose
Black River Falls, WI
Leaping Deer
Black River Falls, WI
The two Orange Moose and Leaping Deer are located just off I-94. The moose statue was originally located at Moose Peterson's Chevrolet dealership. Peterson's friends painted the statue orange as a prank and he decided to leave it that way. When the dealership closed in the early 1970s, the statue was moved here. According to another source, the moose's orange color comes from a local story about a farmer that found a baby moose and fed it carrot baby food and it grew up to be an Orange Moose. The second orange moose shown here stands in front of the "Orange Moose Bar & Grill", part of the Best Western Arrowhead Lodge & Suites. [Deer & Moose map]; [Orange Moose map]
