A hilarious makeover for the smarter-than-average bear
17 October 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

John Kricfalusi and his demented yet extremely talented Spumco team did a great job re-doing the old Hanna-Barbera characters such as Yogi, Boo Boo, Ranger Smith and everyone else in a modern, twisted, world for a (one time only) special on Cartoon Network. But don't let that last line catch you off guard. Although the humor was dramaticly changed, the same old 50's style music was used and the same bright, colorful backgrounds and paintings were also used to make this cartoon true to the original. The premise: Tired of Ranger Smith's long list of laws and restrictions, Boo Boo takes a stand and rips off his bow-tie, gets on all fours, and creates havok in the park of Jellystone. While he's rumaging through the forest, he finds Cindy Bear (Yogi's girlfriend in the classic series) who surprisingly joins Boob on his wild scurage. The constant drooling and loud growling of Boob kinda reminds you that this is directed by the same guy who brought you the original episodes of The Ren & Stimpy Show. Since the special will probably never air again, (at least not for a long time) I guess I'll let you in on some ending spoilers. At the end, Ranger Smith gets up his courage and decides to shoot Boo Boo with his rifle until Yogi (who acts mostly identical to the original) says that he's doing the wrong thing and gets in an "Ultimate Fighting" type of brawl with the ranger. When "Boo Boo Runs Wild" aired, it also came packaged with 2 classic Yogi cartoons from the 60's and another Spumco remake (a shorter cartoon compared to BBRW) "A Day in The Life of Ranger Smith", which is also quite good.
