“The Huckleberry Hound Show” was a favorite of all families. It began airing on NBC in 1958 and was the second program that the Hanna-Barbera studio made for television. For amusement of spectators, he encompassed three fantastic animated series. One of them was called ‘Yogi Bear’.
After the second season, the producers realized that Yogi was more famous than the protagonist himself of the show as well they decided to give the opportunity to have their own space. In 1961 he debuted “The Yogi Bear Show ‘. From there, Yogi fame grew over the years into one of the most iconic pictures of Hanna-Barbera, often being an integrated character, appearing next to other inhabitants of the universe of study.
A cheeky bear
Yogi’s success is due, among other things, to the irresistible personality of this bear that only lives and breathes for steal baskets visitors of Jellystone Park and to eat the rich food of those who expected to spend a great day among nature. His other great passion is to escape the park and travel to the city, where you can walk among the people and be one of them. Yogi’s personality was reinforced by peculiar way of talking and moving that just make it a theatrical possibilities and full of humorous character. He spoke forcing the most impossible and fun rhymes and walked in a very characteristic manner. Many say that the ways of Yogi are inspired by the character played by Art Carney in the comedy ‘The Honeymooners’.
