Yogi Bear


Everyone’s favorite pic-a-nic basket-stealing bear comes to the big screen in Yogi Bear. Jellystone Park has been losing business, so greedy Mayor Brown decides to shut it down and sell the land. That means families will no longer be able to experience the natural beauty of the outdoors — and, even worse, Yogi and Boo Boo will be tossed out of the only home they’ve ever known. Faced with his biggest challenge ever, Yogi must prove that he really is smarter than the average bear as he and Boo Boo join forces with their old nemesis Ranger Smith to find a way to save Jellystone Park from closing forever.

Dove Review

Many years ago everyone gathered around the TV to watch their favorite cartoon by Hanna Barbera of a picnic basket-stealing talking bear named Yogi and his sidekick Boo Boo who always got the best of the park ranger. Here is a modern version of this lovable trio in Jellystone Park. Filled with the same antics that Yogi created years ago, but in the new cinema-graphic way that so many of us enjoy in this day and age Yogi and Boo Boo come to life and make you laugh as they help Ranger Smith save Jellystone from the sinister major.

Remember when you were a kid? You went to a movie and it started with a short cartoon. Well, this movie starts with the road runner and the coyote doing their famous chase scenes. “Yogi Bear” along with the short will be enjoyed by the entire family because most of us remember the originals and the new generation will fall in love with these hilarious characters. With the beautiful scenery as the background Ranger Smith, Yogi and Boo Boo along with Ranger Jones and Rachel will have you laughing out loud.

Here is one picture that we applaud as wholesome entertainment that everyone will want to see. We are proud to award the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages to this movie.
