The history of the Fouke Monster includes some interesting merchandising and appearances. His image has been used to sell Halloween costumes, he's been the subject of songs, and he's even appeared in an Arkansas public service ad.

Billy Cole & The Fouke Monsters 45
A 45-RPM vinyl record was released in 1971, featuring a song called "Fouke Monster" by Billy Cole & The Fouke Monsters. The song sounds like quirky 60s-era rock with a spooky chorus that chants "Monster, Fouke, Monster, Fouke, Monster." Obviously this is an extremely rare record and is very hard to find.
The song was released on CD in 2011 as part of the "Lost Souls Volume 3" compilation by Psych of the South.
Fouke Monster Speaks Out Against Litter
Another notable testament to the creature's enduring legacy can be found in a public service ad created by the Keep Arkansas Beautiful Commission in 2007. In this 30-second television ad, the character of the Fouke Monster is used to address the growing problem of litter. The tongue-in-cheek premise envisions the Fouke Monster as a legendary movie star 35 years after The Legend of Boggy Creek was filmed. At this point the monster's hairline is receding, his teeth are capped, and he is generally shown to be older than he was in 1972 at the "height of his career."
The ad was run quite extensively, appearing on large networks such as CNN, Discovery, Sci-Fi, and ESPN, as well as, local Arkansas stations.
