I Hope To Meet Yogi Bear And Boo Boo Bear At Jellystone Park
We’re off to Yellowstone Park and maybe a chance meeting of the two famous bears in the park. Did you know Yogi was a rapper who spoke in rhyme.
Yogi and Boo Boo Bear are the picnic basket stealing bears from the infamous Jellystone Park in the Hanna Barbera classic YOGI BEAR. The plot of most of Yogi’s cartoons centered on his antics in the fictional Jellystone Park, a takeoff on the famous Yellowstone National Park. Yogi, accompanied by his constant companion Boo-Boo Bear, would often try to steal picnic baskets from campers in the park, much to the displeasure of Park Ranger Smith. Yogi’s girlfriend, Cindy Bear, sometimes appeared and usually disapproved of Yogi’s antics.
Remember Yogi’s catch phrases: Besides often speaking in rhyme, Yogi Bear had a number of catchphrases, including his pet name for picnic baskets (“pic-a-nic baskets”) and his favorite self-promotion (“I’m smarter than the av-er-age bear!”) although he often overestimates his own cleverness. Another characteristic of Yogi was his deep and silly voice. He often greets the ranger with a cordial, “Hello, Mr. Ranger, sir!” and “Hey there, Boo Boo!” as his preferred greeting to his sidekick, Boo Boo. Yogi would also often use puns in his speech, and have a habit of pronouncing large words with a long vocal flourish.
I’ll let you know if our picnic type basket full of ham sandwiches and potato salad was stolen by two bears with clip on ties.
