Next Resurrection of an Old Cartoon: Yogi Bear


Ah, the latest old cartoon character to be swiped from the past: Yogi Bear. Warner Bros. is planning a feature film for Yogi Bear and Boo Boo with a mixture of live-action and CGI characters (like last year's Alvin and the Chipmunks movie). The Hollywood Reporter has more info, though no specific plot details:

Much of the movie will be live-action, but Yogi Bear and sidekick Boo Boo will be done in CG. . . Yogi's exploits take place in Jellystone Park, where he and Boo Boo get into good-natured mischief and must elude their nemesis, Ranger Smith.

With remakes and things like this, my question is always the same: Why? It's nice that Yogi and Boo Boo were relevant and interesting to young audiences for so many years (Yogi got his own show in 1961), but this recycling of old characters is so tiresome by now. I do find myself wondering, however, who they'll get to voice Yogi. Along with borrowing characters from the past, using celebrity voices is now the standard. Who do you think will bring Yogi to life?

I totally agree that Warner Bros should stop doing Yogi bear movie. I ruin all the classic that brought from Hanna Barbera. Live action CGI. Let take an example. >The Flintstone >Alvin and Chipmunk >Speed Racer I HATE THOSE I love the Film Hey There It's Yogi Bear. CGI is tooo logic making character cannot do some style like stretch, freeze before falling, score, singing with rhyme and not using back lyrics. Look TOm and Jerry, they have all the funny stlye with music make it funnier. I hate seeing my old favorite cartoons ruined.

"Just try to get the Boomerang network and let your child fall in love with the original cartoon like you did!!!!"tia, do they show Yogi Bear on Boomerang?!?! I've been wanting to watch it so much! And I can't find it on any network :( I hate the idea of using older cartoons. Just come up with something original! Don't redo the classics :(

Come on people! Knock it off and write something original. Dear lord, have you nothing better to do than recycle everything that's been done before, and done better? It's official, I'm boycotting remakes.

C'mon, Hollywood, really? It might be that I hated this cartoon, but I think it's going to be awful. Really, is there that much interest in Yogi bear out there? Somehow I doubt it..

NO...NO...NO!!! Honestly, these updated takes on classic cartoons does nothing for the original but deface it with toilet humor and likely "Shrek-styled" sexual innuendos. Just try to get the Boomerang network and let your child fall in love with the original cartoon like you did!!!!

I think Kevin James might be able to do a good Yogi the Bear voice.

huh - that's interesting. i guess that it's going to be a good thing since we know how receptive to movies like this the world is. we always need things that are more kid appropriate and seeing as how classic cartoons don't do it anymore, adding a bit of CGI to it could be great.
