Cartoon Production Information:
Joining the parade of brand new cartoons starring teenage versions of celebrity toons (Flintstone Kids and Tom and Jerry Kids, to name a few), Hanna-Barbera debuted Yo, Yogi! in 1991. The series starred none other than Jellystone Park's pride and joy, Yogi Bear, making his first new appearance on network television in twelve years.
In this latest incarnation, the former thorn in Ranger Smith's side appeared as a crime-fighting teenager, along with his faithful sidekick Boo Boo. They spent most of their time solving mysteries and hanging out at Jellystone Mall. Yo, Yogi! also saw the return of many other characters from the Hanna-Barbera stable (also in teenage versions), including Cindy Bear, Dastardly and Muttley, Snagglepuss, and Huckleberry Hound.
Yo, Yogi! also featured a new segment never seen in a Yogi Bear cartoon before: Yogi in 3D! Perhaps due to less-than-stellar ratings, the series began airing a short 3D segment during each episode. Viewers had to send away for a special pair of 3D glasses through an offer from Rice Krispies cereal.
Yogi may have jumped off the screen, but the ratings were still flat, resulting in the show's cancellation a few months later. The series appeared in syndication the following fall as part of The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera, but that was the last the world would see of this jolly, rappin' teen bear. The adult Yogi returned in 1999 for the TV specials Ranger Smith, directed by Ren & Stimpy creator John Kricfalusi.
