Boo Boo (Yogi Bear)


Boo Boo (Yogi Bear)

Boo Boo Bear is a Hanna-Barbera cartoon character, an anthropomorphic bear cub in a bow tie, who is Yogi Bear's best friend, and often acts as his conscience; he tries (usually unsuccessfully) to keep Yogi from doing things he shouldn't do, and also to keep Yogi from getting into trouble with Ranger Smith. Often he would say "But Yogi, Ranger Smith's not going to like that" or some other variation.

History

Hanna-Barbera appearances

Boo Boo first debuted, along with Yogi, on the "Yogi Bear" segment of "The Huckleberry Hound Show" in 1958; when Yogi was given his own series in 1961, Boo Boo went with him.

Since then, Boo Boo has remained at Yogi's side through almost all of the Hanna-Barbera series, movies, and specials that Yogi was in; the only exceptions are "Yogi's Space Race" and "Galaxy Goof-Ups", in which Boo Boo's place was taken by a new character named Scare Bear. Boo Boo's classic voice actor was Don Messick who would voice Scooby-Doo eight years later until his passing in 1997.

Other appearances

In the Dexter's Laboratory episode "Chubby Cheese," an animatronic Boo Boo can be seen on stage with other Hanna-Barbera characters.

Spümcø has made a few parody cartoons starring Boo Boo and the other characters from the original "Yogi Bear" series, starting with 1999's "Boo Boo Runs Wild." In this half-hour tale, Boo Boo's nice-guy persona is heavily satirized as him simply being repressed by all of Ranger Smith's rules and regulations, and finds him regressing into a primal state, complete with typical bear-like urges and mannerisms.

In the "Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law" episode "Death By Chocolate" (2002), Boo Boo (voiced by Tom Kenny) was suspected of being a terrorist known as the Unabooboo (a takeoff of the Unabomber). He later appeared in the episodes "Back to the Present," "Blackwatch Plaid" (as an actor in a costume), "The Return of Birdgirl," and "The Death of Harvey." In almost all of these episodes, Boo Boo seemed to have a romantic relationship with Harvey.

Boo Boo appears in the "Robot Chicken" episode "Ban on the Fun" (2007), voiced by Victor Yerrid. In a segment that parodies the Laff-A-Lympics in the style of the Munich massacre, Boo Boo is the first to be killed.

Boo Boo also appears in a cutaway gag on the Family Guy episode Hell Comes to Quahog where Peter Griffin stabs and kills Yogi Bear. Boo Boo is told to tell the other bears what he just saw.

In an episode of "The Simpsons", Homer dreams that he is in a parody of Yogi Bear with Bart as Boo Boo and Ned Flanders as Ranger Smith (whom Homer mauls violently).
