MPT Coverage: Ring-a-Ding Picnic Basket

By
Let's go home with adding coverage to this Yogi Bear short.

Based on memory, this short stands out in it's name and opening concept but in being honest this Yogi short isn't one that holds too much place in my memory. It's quite easy to forget the later development.

The premise of the episode has Ranger Smith set up a trap picnic basket to trick Yogi into thinking he shouldn't be stealing them anymore. While the ringing picnic basket gets Yogi a bit he doesn't go over to the good side until he hears what he thinks is the Ranger preparing to send him to a zoo. However it's really about an escaped lion.

We have our three major characters in this short of Yogi Bear, Boo Boo Bear and Ranger Smith. We gets lots of good Yogi and Ranger but not too much Boo-Boo this short. We get minor characters of the guy who gives Smith the trap and the lion but again nothing really memorable.

This episode's lack of stand out, helps it's rewatch value, as it's not one to really be remembered off the top of your head. It's a fun watch again and again because of that. The ending reaction of Yogi's response to the Ranger letting him have a picnic basket helps sell the short into better standing.

If i have to bestow a rating on this episode i give it 8/10 B
