Storyline

Jellystone Park is celebrating its 100th anniversary, however it may be for the last time, because attendance is down and Mayor Brown wants to close the park and sell the land. If the park is closed, Yogi Bear and Boo Boo will lose their home. They join forces with Ranger Smith to save Jellystone from closing forever. Yogi must really prove in this endeavor that he is "smarter than the average bear". Written by Douglas Young (the-movie-guy)

Trivia

After Hannah Barbera introduced the Yogi Bear character; baseball star Yogi Berra was very angry and intended to sue the animation company for defamation of character. Then, after some deliberations; he changed his mind: '"Television is big enough for both me and Yogi Bear," he said. "I was going to sue the Yogi Bear program for using my name, until somebody reminded me Yogi isn't my real name - it's Lawrence." So maybe he came close, but never pulled the trigger. Then again, three years earlier, he told the same newspaper that he had never heard of the cartoon character until his kids discovered it. "My kids love it because they say the bear reminds them of their old man," said Berra, hardly sounding like someone who was claiming his reputation was hurt."' See more »

User Reviews

Not smarter than your average animation
17 December 2010 | by jdesandoSee all my reviews

In the new animation Yogi Bear even the voices of Dan Aykroyd as Yogi and Justin Timberlake as Boo Boo aren't able to take a lumbering script and make it less than soporific for adults. But, then, this movie is for youngsters about 5 years old, no older, so it has found an audience that might be mildly amused, as mine was.

In this derivation from the once popular TV series, a documentary filmmaker, Rachel (Anna Farris), falls in love with Ranger Smith (Tom Cavanagh) while she witnesses his struggle with nefarious forces that threaten the future and ecology of Jellystone National Park. Yogi and Boo are not a help even though they'd like to be because Yogi regularly disproves his boast that he's "smarter than the average bear." This comedy, magnified but not improved, by 3-D is not smarter than the average animation.
