Original poster

Hang in there, Baby is a popular catchphrase made by a motivational poster. The poster featured a picture of a small kitten, hanging on to a tree branch.[1] It has since become a popular relic of the 1970s. A copy of the poster was famously presented to Spiro Agnew by 100 of his supporters in Congress when he was under pressure to resign in 1973.[2]

Another copy of the kitten poster hangs in an outer office of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The vintage poster originally belonged to his father, former Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau.[3]
