Millions of people have seen Twiggy, or at least the current version of Twiggy. The original Twiggy was a rescued squirrel from a hurricane in 1978 by Chuck and Lou Ann Best from Sanford, Florida, they taught that squirrel how to ski, and the rest is history.

Twiggy has entertained millions of people throughout the years and has been featured in movies, TV shows, books, and magazines. Twiggy not only entertains, but educates the audience about water safety and the importance of life jackets.

Lou Ann Best retired from touring with Twiggy after doing it for 39 years and now her son, Chuck Best Jr. takes the latest Twiggy from town to town as the spokes animal for The National Safe Boating Council's "Wear It" Campaign.
