When I was a kid, I remember watching the Yogi Bear cartoon. We loved Yogi Bear and his Jellystone Park.
Yogi Bear’s Jellystone is known to be based on Yellowstone National Park, even though it is supposed to represent all U.S. National Parks. Yogi Bear is a fictional cartoon character that has been around since 1958 but has recently seen some reemergence with a new Yogi Bear Movie (2010) and Jellystone Cartoon series (2021).
Yogi Bear, Jellystone, And Yellowstone National Park
Yogi Bear is a fictional cartoon bear that made his debut in 1958; he was in many comic books, television shows, and The Huckleberry Hound Show.
Yogi Bear became so popular that in 1961 that he was given his show, “The Yogi Bear Show.” Recently the Yogi Bear character has been revitalized in the new series called Jellystone!.
It is believed that the original Jellystone is based upon the Yellowstone National Park. The original Jellystone was meant to represent all national parks, not just Yellowstone.
The original Yogi bear in the fictional Jellystone Park was accompanied by his constant companion Boo-Boo-Boo. The two would often try to steal picnic baskets from campers in Jellystone Park. Yogi Bear and Boo-Boo-Boo were always getting in trouble with the Park Ranger Smith.
Yogi bear had a girlfriend named Cindy Bear, who disapproved of Yogi Bear’s antics.
Favorite Yogi Bear Scenes From The Yogi Bear Movie (2010)
In all the series, one of the common denominators is that the Yogi bear loves food. He will dream of donuts, steal food and do all he can to get food. His antics always get Yogi bear and his sidekick Boo Boo in trouble with the Park Ranger Smith.
Here are some of our favorite scenes.

One of the great things about the Yogi bear movies is that many of his stories have a moral element.
Jellystone! Today (HMO Max Series)
Yogi Bear has been remade again into a cartoon series by HMO Max. In the new series, the Jellystone is not a park setting as in the older series of Yogi bear but a city.
Jellystone in the new cartoon series is not a National Park but a newly-founded city of Jellystone. The series has Jellystone Hospital, Jellystone City Hall, Jellystone Elementary School, Jellystone Police Department, and other areas of the town and town folks.
Some of the significant original characters have been rebranded for the new series as:
- Dr. Yogi Bear is a self-assured goofball who loves food and crazy schemes. In the true Yogi Bear fashion, he will try to get his ”paws” on some goodies.
- Boo Boo is a brown bear who is the nurse at the Jellystone hospital. Boo Boo continues to be Yogi Bear’s faithful sidekick.
- Cindy Bear is another doctor at the Jellystone hospital, also from the original series.
- Ranger Smith is the hospital administrator.
The newer version of Jellystone takes the characters out of the park and into a city setting.
