Debut Series


In the early Yogi Bear segments, Jellystone Park wasn't established as the focal point of Yogi's misadventures, so he would occasionally venture out into the woods that didn't seem to be in Jellystone Park.

In the late 1980s and early 1990s, Hanna-Barbera retconned the park as being part of a town called Jellystone.

Behind the scenes

  • Jellystone is inspired by Yellowstone National Park in the Western United States.
  • "Jellystone National Park" was first mentioned in the 1953 Barney Bear short Barney's Hungry Cousin.
  • Although not mentioned by name in the A Pup Named Scooby-Doo episode "The Story Stick," both Yogi and Ranger Smith had a cameo.

In popular culture

  • In The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air episode "72 Hours," when Will warns Carlton against going to MacArthur Park, Carlton assures him that he'll inform the park rangers if something happens, to which Will replies, "It's not that kind of park, Boo Boo!"
  • In "Episode Two" (series two) of the Dead Ringers radio sketch program, Nick Russ presents Cartoon Crimewatch that reports the theft of a picnic basket on Easter Sunday, providing a reenactment of the crime with Yogi ordering Boo Boo to provide a distraction so Yogi can steal the picnic basket, but his plan is foiled by the appearance of Ranger Smith. Russ ponders if Boo Boo is a friend or accomplice, and notes that Yogi is distinguished by a "trilby hat." He asks viewers to call if they have any knowledge. He then reports on a crime by Top Cat.
