As the movie opens, Spring has arrived in Jellystone Park. Just as fast as tourists arrive, Yogi is up to his usual act of stealing their picnic baskets and any other food he encounters. Ranger Smith is quite used to this by now so he is already there to stop Yogi at every almost every instance. Meanwhile, Yogi's friend Cindy has decided to confess her love to Yogi in hopes that he loves her the same way. One day Ranger Smith receives a call from the San Diego Zoo asking if they may have one of the bears from the park. At that exact moment, Yogi barges in his office demanding that the Ranger had better take down all the "Do Not Feed The Bears" signs or he would like to leave the park. The Ranger takes this opportunity to choose Yogi to be sent to the zoo. Yogi doesn't want to go and convinces another bear to take his place. So that the Ranger doesn't find out, Yogi goes into hiding without even informing Boo-Boo of his whereabouts. Cindy tries to find Yogi but stumbles upon a ... Written by Heather

When Cindy Bear falls out of the train and gets lost, she jumps out of the road to prevent being run over by an incoming car, and once she landed, she breaks down crying on the grass after realizing that she's lost without Yogi. Then in the next scene, when Mugger jumps out of the Chizzling brothers' circus wagon to investigate, it cuts to the next shot of Cindy sleeping and waking up to the noises of the dog's sniffing. However, she's repositioned near a wall of rocks in this shot. See more »


Ranger Smith: [showing a "Do Not Feed The Bears" sign to Yogi] Read this sign.
Yogi Bear: [deliberately reading incorrectly] Uh, "No Smoking In The Forest"?
Ranger Smith: You know what it says, Yogi, and it applies to *all* the bears, especially you!
Yogi Bear: Uh, yes, sir.

No More Picnic Baskets For Yogi And Boo-Boo
30 May 2015 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Now, I wouldn't exactly say that I hated this animated, feature film that starred Yogi Bear, but, then again, I certainly wouldn't say that I liked it all that much, either.

At 90 minutes in length, I'd say that if a good 30 minutes had been edited from this predictable story no one would have been the wiser. And, besides that - It certainly didn't benefit matters much that 6 truly awful songs were injected into this lame story which, of course, helped to reduce my overall rating of this cartoon by a few extra points.

Released in 1964 - This limited-animation, Hanna-Barbera production, pretty much, just went over the same, old, tired ground of your typical, garden-variety, Yogi Bear cartoon that has ever been made.

The one character who I did like in the story was Mugger, the snickering dog, who was, naturally, given very little screen-time.

On the other hand - The one character who I really disliked here was Cindy Bear (Yogi's whining love-interest) who, unfortunately, was given way too much screen-time.

All-in-all - I'd definitely say that "Hey There, It's Yogi Bear!" was the sort of cartoon whose limited and recycled charm could only appeal to the undemanding expectations of a very young child.
