When his natural habitat is threatened to be overrun by civilization and pollution, Yogi Bear, together with his faithful sidekick, Boo Boo Bear, and a gaggle of cartoon notables ranging from Huckleberry Hound, Quick Draw McGraw, and Pixie and Dixie, to Peter Potamus, Augie Doggy, and Snagglepuss, build and board a muscle-powered, propeller-flying ark in search of a "Perfect Place" into which for cartoon animals to relocate. En route, Yogi's group encounter and battle a series of conniving villains. Written by

When this show first premiered I thought it was great that Hanna-Barbera was bringing all of their major characters from the 1960's together in one show. However, when I saw it, I couldn't help but feel that it was a major disappointment. First of all, the show itself was too long due to the fact that it was an hour in length. I think that it would have worked better if it were just a half an hour in length. But, the big thing that I felt was wrong with the show is the fact that it was part of the long line of shows that came out in the 1970's that felt that it had to be socially relevant as well as entertaining. I don't need Yogi Bear or Magilla Gorilla giving me a weekly lesson on why we should protect the environment or how we should avoid the seven deadly sins. No wonder this show, or a lot of the other show's from this period are not remembered fondly or shown in reruns. This is one show I am sure to avoid at all costs.
