Great Yogi / Christmas Show
8 December 2003 | by (O'Fallon, MO) – See all my reviews

So nice to see Yogi again - & Boo Boo, Augie and his dad Daddy Doggy, Huckleberry Hound, Snagglepuss, and Ranger Smith.

Yogi & Boo Boo are hibernating until April which makes Ranger Smith very happy at the Jellystone Park / Lodge. The manager of it is Mr. Dingwell & he's anticipating the arrival of the owner, Mrs. Sophie Throckmorton & her nephew Snidely. She wants to sell it due to some strange going ons last season during Christmas Carnival Week. Herman the Hermit hates Christmas & will do whatever it takes to shut down the lodge. Everyone's singing wakes Yogi & Boo Boo up & since they usually sleep through Christmas, they don't want to miss this one - it's their 1st Christmas (hence the name.) Yogi & Boo Boo save Mrs. T. & her bratty nephew from an avalanche, which was caused by Herman. Herman keeps doing nasty stuff & each time Yogi's the hero & gets promotions on top of promotions. Ranger Smith wants to put Yogi back in his cave / St. Louis Zoo! Cindi's awake too - she's a female bear who likes Yogi. Snidely keeps losing contests that they have, gets mad & runs away to Herman's hut. They bond since they both don't like Christmas & team up to try & ruin everything. Mrs. T. decides not to sell but rather to bring orphans up to the lodge throughout the year & donate it as an Orphanage Getaway & promotes Yogi to Christmas Carnival Director.

What a good, fun holiday classic for the kid in all of us.
