Help! Help! Its The Hair Bear Bunch!
30 November 2006 | by (Durham,North Carolina) – See all my reviews

Bearing a certain resemblance to the venerable Hanna-Barbera characters Yogi Bear and friends,the Hair Bear Bunch were three cousins who lived in Cave Block #9 at the Wonderland Zoo but regularly made their escape to the outside world,usually at night when nobody is looking,to see what action they were missing or to find out what's happening. The series "Help! It's The Hair Bear Bunch",was one of CBS-TV's colossal line-up of successful Saturday Morning cartoons that impact the schedule during the 1971-1972 season. From the premiere episode on September 11,1971(it premiere on the same day as another CBS Saturday Morning venture as well...the spin-off to The Flintstones' Hanna-Barbera produced show "Peebles And Bamm-Bamm",as well as others that premiered the same day like "Sabrina The Teenage Witch","The Groovie Ghoulies",and "Chan and the Amazing Chan Clan") to the final episode on August 31,1974 in repeated episodes from the first season. Only 17 episodes were produced for the series under the production company of Hanna-Barbera Productions.

"Help! It's The Hair Bear Bunch",was basically a revitalization of their own classic early 1960's show "Top Cat" with a constructed remaking of Hanna-Barbera's own Yogi Bear who at the time needed a constant change over and this time around took the characters of Yogi Bear,his sidekick Boo-Boo,and even the character of Ranger Smith and completely gave them a 1970's makeover. The leader of the squad was Hair Bear(voiced by Daws Butler),who sported a soulful fuzzy Afro style head of hair and the brains of the outfit. Square Bear(Bill Callaway)was the Southern spoken Bear,who was a tall goony bear in a cap,while Bubi Bear(Paul Winchell)was the rough equivalent of Boo-Boo in all mannerisms. Chasing them constantly on their excursions were the zoo's curator and head of the Wonderland Zoo,Mr. Peevely(in the pilot episode it was Joe Flynn of McHale's Navy fame and during the rest of the series' run was Hanna-Barbera stock player John Stephenson) and his chubby right-hand man Botch(Joe E. Ross),who catch phrase was "Ooo,ooo!" This was a combination of several shows which made it hilarious...one it was part "McHale's Navy",part "F-Troop",and it was part "Phil Silvers",and part of "Hogan's Heroes" in the zoo,with a cast of crafty conning animals that wheel and deals for either meals or favorites from their human counterparts. Funny show. The first season ran from September 11,1971 until September 2,1972,and moved from Saturday Mornings to Sunday Mornings from September 9, 1973 until August 31,1974 in repeated episodes. Only 12 episodes were produced for this series.
