"The Yogi Bear Show" -- 50th Anniversary

January 30, 2011 marks the 50th Anniversary of the premiere of "The Yogi Bear Show" (January 30, 1961) in syndication on TV stations around the nation.  

Yogi first appeared back in October 1958 as one of the costars of "The Huckleberry Hound Show." His popularity led to his own series, in which he was supported by sidekick Boo Boo, nemesis Ranger Smith, and costars Snagglepuss, Yakky Doodle and Chopper.  

The show featured the brilliant voice acting of Daws Butler, Don Messick and, as Yakky Doodle, Jimmy Weldon.

Of course, Yogi became one of Hanna-Barbera's most enduring cartoon stars.


  1. Wow, how time flies...and though I have no intention at *all* of seeing it, I have to admit the recent Yogi Bear movie somewhat, sorta chose the right time to produce one in time for the anniversary...a shame it's not in glorious hand-drawn animation...

    But I did grin at your little "dumpster" piece, Tom. Nicely done =)

  2. Yogi Bear: The Movie is being shown on the Brazilian cinemas. It was premiered here in Brazil last Friday.

  3. All right Tom, now that Yogi is here, I have a Question:

    ¿have you recently watched the live action movie of Yogi Bear? in case you have ¿how does it look for you so far?

    and A second question about the Animaniacs and Power Rangers: It's known from a begining, animaniacs started airing at Fox Kids, when the episode of the super strong warne siblings came up, ¿was it aired in the same chanel as Power Rangers (Fox Kids) or at a different chanel (Kids WB) or Both?

  4. I have not seen the new live-action Yogi Bear movie.

    "Animaniacs" had moved from Fox to Kids-WB by the time "The Super-Strong Warner Siblings" segment first aired.

    "Powers Rangers" was airing on Fox at that time.

  5. Ahh Yogi, my second favorite HB star. He never looked quite as good as when Ed Benedict drew them. I never saw this particular show as far as I know.

    Happy birthday, Yogi.
