Yogi Bear is a series of animated segments as part of The Huckleberry Hound Show, The Yogi Bear Show and The New Yogi Bear Show, produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions. Airing in syndication, it originally, it ran from 1958 to 1960, airing 35 segments before being replaced by the Hokey Wolf shorts for the third season in 1961, then airing 33 segments on The Yogi Bear Show from 1960 to 1961. In 1988, 45 segments were aired for the final incarnation, The New Yogi Bear Show. In total there were 112 segments that spanned five seasons across three decades.
Proclaiming himself to be "smarter than the average bear," Yogi Bear is Jellystone Park's sneaky resident of the woods. He goes out with his friend and constant companion Boo Boo in numerous schemes, often using his wits in an attempt to steal picnic baskets from campers in the park. The two bears are usually chased down by Ranger Smith, a strict authority figure strained by Yogi's over-the-top antics.
The music was composed by Hoyt Curtin.

Many of the spin-off TV series and movies are based on what was created for The Yogi Bear Show. The success of The Yogi Bear Show propelled Yogi onto the big screen in his only animated theatrical film, Hey There, It's Yogi Bear, released in 1964, becoming the first Hanna-Barbera movie to be distributed by Columbia Pictures.
The Spümcø tributes
Former Hanna-Barbera animator John Kricfalusi, better known as John K., started up his own animation studio Spümcø in 1989, which created the referred The Ren & Stimpy Show for Nickelodeon in 1991. In 1999, Cartoon Network gave him his chance to show his "love" for old Hanna-Barbera cartoons by creating two shorts called "A Day in the Life of Ranger Smith" and "Boo Boo Runs Wild."
In popular culture
- In The Ren & Stimpy Show episode "The Big Shot!," Stimpy becomes the co-star of Muddy Mudskipper, where they reenact one of the many chase sequences between Yogi and Ranger Smith, respectively. Muddy tells Stimpy to get his hand out of the picnic basket, while Stimpy just spouts random quotes originally said by George Jetson, Elmer Fudd, and Mr. Jinks.
- In the Lucifer episode "Yabba Dabba Do Me," young Jimmy Baines watches the episode "Queen for a Day."
