Nobody tell Ranger Smith!
Remember Yogi, Boo Boo, Huckleberry Hound, and the rest of the other classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon characters? Duh, of course you do!!! Whether you’re a boomer, Gen X’er, millennial, or even Gen Z you probably grew up with these classic characters.
And if you’re anything like me, you probably remember watching the reruns on Cartoon Network and later on Boomerang (which in its early days was basically just Hanna-Barbera cartoons all the time).
Well, all our favorite cartoon characters are coming back!!! After a 30-year hiatus, Yogi and the rest of the gang are coming to HBO Max in the brand-new series, Jellystone!
The show follows the huge cast of characters that all now live in the town of Jellystone (which is an homage to Jellystone Park from the original Yogi cartoons).
And along with a new setting, the show also has a new animation style! So I put a little side-by-side together of what some the iconic characters look like in the upcoming series vs. the original:
Here is what everyone’s favorite pic-a-nic basket stealing bear, Yogi, looks like:
Yogi’s girlfriend, Cindy Bear, still maintains a flower in her hair and a scarf around her neck, which is her signture look:
While Yogi’s buddy, Boo Boo, rocks his signature bowtie:
Top Cat is still the most tip top top cat:
The most charming Southern hound dog, Huckleberry Hound:
And heavens to Murgatroid! I, of course, can’t forget about Snagglepuss:
No word yet if Dick Dastardly and Muttley from Wacky Races will make an appearance (but I am hoping for one!).
