Good Humor ice cream was started in the 1920s and sold through their own ice cream trucks through the 1970s. In the 1930s, the company started the Good Humor Safety Club to promote children behaving safely around automobile traffic. Phrases including "Walk slowly," “Cross streets cautiously,” and “Play safe and play tomorrow” were featured in various advertisements. There were safety ranks where collectors could be a Captain, or better, a Chief.
