Dear Jellystone Visitors, Happy holidays from the Big City! Boo Boo and I left Jellystone Park to spend the most wonderful time of the year metropolitan-style, with friends Snagglepuss, Quick Draw McGraw and the gang! Luckily, I outwitted Ranger Smith with my department store Santa disguise. Our adventure led me to Judy, a girl who wants to spend more time with her workaholic dad. Who knew my love of pic-a-nic baskets would reunite them at a big city Christmas picnic in the park? Join the merrymaking, but get here before the basket is empty! The Flintstones, Huckleberry Hound, Auggie Doggie, and more friends also join us, making this Christmas caper full of our favorites. -- Yours Truly, Yogi BearWritten by

According to Mark Evanier, Hanna-Barbera originally requested that Daws Butler be removed from the project and all his roles recast, due to Butler's agent turning down the proposed salary. As this occurred three days before the scheduled recording sessions, and since all the top voice actors working in Hollywood refused to audition for Butler's roles, Evanier eventually complained to Joseph Barbera himself. Once it emerged that the studio's offer was only a thousand dollars short of what Butler's agent had asked for, Barbera demanded that Butler be paid in full, and production resumed without delay.

The usual gang of Snagglepuss, Huckleberry Hound, and Auggie Doggie & Doggie Daddy head to Jellystone park for Xmas to party with Yogi and Boo-Boo. But he's already headed into the city to party with them. Amid the confusion Yogi ends up hiding from zookeepers by dressing up as a department store Santa where he tries hard to make a little girl's dream come true.
The plot is hardly timeless, or even original, but it works well, and has plenty of cameos from Hanna-Barbera stars. If it had been a bit more focused instead of an ensemble effort then it would deserve the title of Xmas Classic, but it's worth a watch as is.
