Behind the scenes

  • According to a 1982 calendar, he was born on September 9th.
  • He goes into hibernation on December 22nd.

In popular culture

  • In the Robert Klein episode of Saturday Night Live, he imitates the general idea of a friendly cartoon bear in his monologue, and apparently choosing Yogi when he says, "Hi, Boo Boo."
  • In the film The Great Outdoors, when Chet gets two bears on top of his car, he says "Yogi and Boo Boo in the flesh. I wish the hell Ranger Smith would get out here and get us home."
  • In the Gilmore Girls episode "Red Light on the Wedding Night", Lorelei mentions Yogi Berra to Snookie, but Snookie is so hungover she thinks Lorelei said Yogi Bear.
  • In the film Snow Dogs, Ted runs into a bear, who he tries to appeal to by saying he likes Yogi.
  • In the Family Guy episode "Hell Comes to Quahog", Meg berates Peter for getting her tank confiscated, but he tells her it's not as worse as the time he did a park ranger (likely Ranger Smith) a favor by fatally stabbing Yogi with a hunter's knife and then suffocating him to get the job done faster, while Boo Boo watches helplessly. After Peter is done, he callously orders Boo Boo to tell the other bears what he just saw. Seth MacFarlane voices Yogi.
  • In The Cleveland Show episode "Birth of a Salesman", Terry says he'll buy Tim the bear a whole steak if he shows him his "bear penis." Cleveland then mocks him by imitating Yogi's voice when he asks, "Is it bigger than the average bear's?"
  • In the Comic Book Men episode "Wurst Episode Ever", Walt asks the staff what their official animal watchdog would be for the Stash, with Ming replying Yogi, which Walt thinks is a terrible idea, because all he does is steal picnic baskets.
