Boy Scouts Rip Off Disney Theme Park Logo

The headline is a little provocative I know… but sometimes there is no way to sugar-coat it, even when it is with respected organization such as the Boy Scouts of America.

I was visiting our local Scouting store and saw this good book about the upcoming 100th Anniversary of Scouting in America.

Good stuff, right? Well, yes… but there was something about that Cub Scout Activity Series logo. It seemed oddly familiar. Where have I seen that logo before?

Compare the logo to the original logo for Disney’s California Adventure theme park, which opened in 2001. The similarities are striking!

It would be interesting to know if the BSA ripped off the artwork or if the artist/firm the BSA hired was the same one that did the Disney artwork and they thought they could get away with being lazy?

Wow. I would love to know the story behind that one. You would think that such a huge organization would know better that that.

Disney ripped off Kimba. Turnabout is fair play.
