He's smarter than the average bear! From his home in Jellystone Park, Yogi Bear dreams of nothing more in life than to outwit as many unsuspecting tourists as he can and grab their prized picnic baskets ... all while staying one step ahead of the ever-exasperated Ranger Smith. Yogi's little buddy, Boo Boo, tries to keep Yogi out of trouble, but rarely succeeds. But that's okay, because not even Ranger Smith can stay mad for long at the lovable, irresistible Yogi Bear.]]>
The Yogi Bear Show: The Complete Series includes all 32 cartoons featuring each of the starring characters. The show's finale was a birthday party special with appearances by Huckleberry Hound, Quick Draw McGraw, and other visitors from various Hanna-Barbera programs. Only a few extras are included in the set; the most fun is "Time Capsule Yogi," which offers the theme song, interstitial gags, and commercials. The Yogi Bear Show may not have been great animation, but it was an essential part of growing up in '60s America, and this set is sure to delight baby boomers who watched it as kids.

Some of my favorites that AREN'T in this compilation are - The 222 Tudor Terrace episode, Quaba Quaba Kitty Kitty episode, Yogi flying the helicopter, Yogi and Super Highway, "When are they going to fix these...bumpy roads?" episode etc.
If you want ALL of the Yogi episodes that you know and love you'll have to buy this DVD and the HuckleBerry Hound Complete Series which features Yogi, Huck and Pixie & Dixie. This isn't a particular hardship since I'd love to see some old Pixie and Dixie, so it's a moot point. But some might be confused as I was to discover they weren't all in this series. I guess WB knew no one was going to buy Snagglepuss or Yakky Doodle the Complete Series....
I just wanted to point out that Yogi purists will have to buy two series to get all of the Yogi cartoons you know and love.
In my opinion, the Yogi Bear Song is one of the greatest theme songs in TV history, and it's a shame to not have before each episode as you get ready to dive back into Jellystone Park.
There is a special feature that allows you to see the theme song, and the bumpers...but since the DVD is titled as "The Complete Series" I was expecting to find the episodes in their original broadcast versions.
That aside, it's a great DVD with tons of great cartoons making their DVD debut. My two year old son and I start off each morning with a round of these classic cartoons before we start our day!
One thing is for sure, one of the staple characters and my favorite is Yogi Bear and his beloved sidekick, Boo Boo. They are constantly getting in trouble with Ranger Smith, either for stealing picnic baskets, or trying to escape from Jellystone Park. Of course, many should be able to tell that the characterization of Yogi came from Ed Norton of the Honeymooners (while Fred Flinstone was Jackie Gleeson).
First appearing in the Huckleberry Hound Show in 1959, Yogi was quickly stealing scenes, which led to his own show. There were not a ton of episodes, compared to the other HB shows, but it's simplistic characters and plots made it one of the most fun in all of Hanna Barbera land. The gimmick of him trying to leave Jellystone was used several times in the HB world: Magilla Gorilla trying to get out of the pet store, and Wally Gator and The Hair Bear Bunch always trying to escape the zoo.
While these DVD's include the original early 60's shows, Yogi of course lived on in numerous specials and appearances over the years. He is still the mascot for Jellystone Campgrounds around the country. There has been heaploads of licensed Yogi memorabilia sold from around 1960 right up to the present day, and continues to be a solid find on any Hanna Barbera collector's lists.
For the Hanna Barbera and/or Yogi lover, this collection of classics is a must.Read more ›
