Articles come out around July 13 claiming that the Sign was dedicated on this day. That is incorrect. We do not know the exact date the Sign was dedicated. We know that one of the developers died July 6, 1923 and that the Sign was completed before December 8, 1923 because it was mentioned in a Los Angeles Evening Express article.
At the time of its creation, the Sign was a billboard during a time when large novelty billboards were all the rage. It’s possible that it was put up without much fanfare. Or if it had a dedication ceremony, that date is lost at the moment.

The animated Netflix show BoJack Horseman about a famous horse actor made headlines in season 1 when the title character stole the D in the Hollywood Sign as a present for another character named Diane. Hollywood then became Hollywoo for the rest of the show. Now it’s airing it’s 6th and final season, the show has finally righted the situation (sort of), replacing the destroyed D with a B making Hollywoo into Hollywoob.
