Bucky The Beaver: Redneck Icon and Role Model
Everyone who drinks Blue Beaver Beer at the Redneck knows and loves our favorite blue furry friend, Bucky the Beaver. We’ve seen his rise to fame, from Horseguard River working critter to Blue Beaver Beer spokescritter. It’s a true rags to riches tale, spanning many years.
Buky was born in a muddy den, deep in the Horseguard Valley. He was raised to work hard, like all beavers. He worked dam hard, all day long, on the family dam. But even as a young beaver, Bucky had big ideas and dreams of fame. He had heard of other animals that made it big. Mickey Mouse, Woody Woodpecker and Bugs Bunny were the heroes in all of his bedtime stories. He knew that size or species or huge teeth were no barrier to entry in the world of smart ass critters. Even Pluto, who wasn’t aloud to wear clothes like his dumber cousin Goofy, made it big time.
He didn’t enjoy hard work like all the other beavers. So, Bucky decided to make a break for it and leave behind his redneck brown collar existence as a swamp creature. He headed straight for Hollywood, traveling mostly by river when possible, but once hitching a ride with a desperate trucker named Wayne. When he arrived in the big town Bucky thought he would have an easy time getting into show biz. Unfortunately, he was wrong. No one wanted a redneck beaver.
No one would hire an unknown like our hero. He couldn’t find a place to live or food to keep going, and was tempted into working the streets. Reduced to turning tricks to make it by, Bucky was a sexually exploited beaver. That is why he raises money for charities today. Hookers Outreach Enterprise (HOE) was started by Bucky the Beaver to try to get those unlucky beavers and hookers off the streets.
Bucky never gave up on his dream of become a wise ass cartoon character. He auditioned, he practiced his stand up routine, he tried to trade sexual favors for jobs, all to no avail. You can still find the occasional dirty picture of a naked beaver trying to get ahead by any means possible.
Then one day, as Bucky was out walking the street, a billionaire stopped to ask for directions. They hit it off, and he ended up taking Bucky back to his hotel room to help the downtrodden beaver out. It was the leg up that Bucky needed. And that billionaire was none other than Richie Rich, the comic book star.
Soon Bucky got parts in commercials and as extras movies.
