Deathstroke/Yogi Bear Special
He is a stern authority figure who watches over Jellystone Park, in contrast to his carefree rival Yogi. He disapproves the bear for stealing picnic baskets from the guests.
The physical appearance of Ranger Smith is of a 30-something year old man with fair skin and dark hair. He is seen wearing a green park ranger's outfit, with a color-matching campaign hat and a badge.
Smith works as a national park ranger in Jellystone Park. He is a voice of authority who wants nothing more than to stop Yogi Bear from breaking the park rules, especially when he steals picnic baskets from the park's guests. He is hardworking, strait-laced, and mild-mannered. In spite of his fustration with handling Yogi's eccentric schemes, Smith does not have complete grudge of him at all, though he would sometimes threaten to get rid of Yogi when he is up to mischief. He is often supportive of Yogi, however, particularly when he does not breaking the park rules or in need of serious help.
Smith also has a genuine sympathy for Boo Boo because he, unlike Yogi, is as a bear who follows closely to the rules at Jellystone Park.

Scooby-Doo Teams Up with Yogi
In the first season of The Huckleberry Hound Show, there were other, unnamed park rangers who appeared; with each looking different from the last. From the second season onward, a character formally by the name of "Ranger Smith" came to be in the episode "Lullabye-Bye Bear." The short (animated by George Nicholas) featured Smith in a design closely resembling his final look; but wore a beige suit instead of a green one.
Various original Yogi Bear episodes have the ranger wearing an all-familiar, green color scheme, but his character design strangely varied from various animators working on the segments. When Ranger Smith became a main character in The Yogi Bear Show, the design stuck closer to his model sheet at the time the show was being made, especially in the last batch of episodes.
