About this deal

The poster struck a chord with 1970s Americans, and it became one of the best-selling posters of the era. Bill Jones was a fictional, fatherly character designed to share the wisdom he supposedly learned on the job with workers everywhere.

Some of the technologies we use are necessary for critical functions like security and site integrity, account authentication, security and privacy preferences, internal site usage and maintenance data, and to make the site work correctly for browsing and transactions. Hang in there may be good advice for those going into surgery or recovering from heartache, but it’s not apt for those resisting movement due to a fear of failure. And that’s why the final motivational message we want to give you is this; It‘s your workplace – go wild! The subscriptions ran for about six years, and over the course of the program, more than 300 cards were created.The original poster featured a black and white photograph of a Siamese kitten clinging to a bamboo pole and was first published in late 1971 as a poster by Los Angeles photographer Victor Baldwin. Keep Going; 100 Reasons To Stay Alive is available in crewneck t-shirts, sweatshirts, and hoodies ranging from sizes XS-5XL. The poster was signed by the fictional man himself, and every motivational poster from the company after that carried the “Bill Jones” signature. Wiki, aiming to impress and gain the approval of his two adopted siblings, performs a number of acrobatic tricks, including one where he hangs from a bamboo pole.

The first copy of the poster was sold to the composer of The Music Man, Meredith Willson, who asked for it to be framed. These 4 or 5-star reviews represent the opinions of the individuals who posted them and do not reflect the views of Etsy. However, many others have been inspired by said poster, enough that it’s become a mainstay in our collective consciousness, the image still being shared and sold in multiple forms to this very day, and it could be argued that it’s the first of the modern kind of meme. When the Great Depression hit in the 1930s, these workplace motivational posters largely disappeared.Baldwin produced other animal-themed posters throughout the 1970s, as well as licensing a wristwatch, mugs, glasses and other products featuring the "Hang in There, Baby" cat image. It also appeared in a Terminator film, on a Survivor episode, the 2003 film The Cat in the Hat, and more. Baldwin did receive a few complaints from people who felt that posing a cat as depicted in the poster constituted animal cruelty.
