BURBANK, CA (September 20, 2010) – Hide your “pic-a-nic” baskets because that “smarter than the average bear” Yogi Bear is making a break from Jellystone Park this holiday season to star in Warner Home Video’s (WHV) release of Yogi Bear’s All-Star Comedy Christmas Caper. In stores December 7, 2010, this animated holiday classic will be released in an all-new, re-mastered version which will be available for the first time on DVD. Yogi Bear’s All-Star Comedy Christmas Caper is scheduled to release in time with the debut of Yogi Bear, the brand new live-action/computer animation big screen adventure in 3D, based on characters created by Hanna-Barbera Productions. The perfect gift this holiday season, Yogi Bear’s All-Star Comedy Christmas Caper is a terrific value at $14.97 SRP.
When Huckleberry Hound, Hokey Wolf, Snagglepuss, Quick Draw McGraw, Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy decide to pay a visit to Jellystone Park for Christmas, they discover that Yogi Bear and his pal Boo Boo have escaped and are hiding out in a department store, where Yogi is posing as the store’s Santa Claus. It’s there that Yogi and Boo Boo meet seven-year-old Judy Jones, daughter of billionaire J. Wellington Jones, a busy and successful tycoon who would rather deal with his business than deal with Christmas. Yogi and Boo Boo, however, help Judy re-ignite her faith in Christmas. Additional classic Hanna-Barbera characters featured in Yogi Bear’s All-Star Comedy Christmas Caper include Ranger Smith, Mr. Jinks, Pixie and Dixie, Magilla Gorilla, Wally Gator, Yakky Doodle and others.
The Yogi Bear Show featured Yogi and his pal Boo Boo living in Jellystone Park, where they constantly snuck behind Ranger Smith’s back to steal picnic baskets from unsuspecting vacationers. The Yogi Bear Show introduced such new characters as Snagglepuss and Yakky Doodle. Seventy Yogi Bear cartoons were produced, all of which featured the voice of legendary Daws Butler as the voice of Yogi and Don Messick as the voice of Boo Boo.
