More Annoying Than The Average Bear…

– – As if we all didn’t suffer enough at Christmas, you’re soon to be hit with both a Yogi Bear and a Smurfs movie!  As Al Bundy might have questioned, “Are we not fit to die?!”

The live-action/CGI Yogi Bear movie opens December 17th, and stars none less than Dan Aykroid as the voice of Yogi with Justin Timberlake doing the honors (?) as Boo-Boo Bear.  Aykroid was reportedly sent tapes of  Daws Butler performing the original voice of Yogi Bear, but refused to listen to them, preferring to do his own take on the character.  The movie is reportedly pretty thin on a story line, not that there was great intellectual content in the original Hanna-Barbera cartoon…

Of greater interest to me is the fact that the film in theaters will be preceded by a new 3D short with Wile  E. Coyote and the Road Runner entitled, “Rabid Rider.”– -Now that’s entertainment!

    Even the worst of the original H-B cartoons (and there were very, very few of those) are bound to be ten times better–and, thus, more fun–than this upcoming “homage!”

    Can you say “ROCKY AND BULLWINKLE, co-starring Piper Perabo?” Or, “LAND OF THE LOST, starring Will Farrell?”

      I far preferred Huckleberry Hound to Yogi…and we won’t even consider the dynamics of the Yogi/Boo-Boo relationship!

  2. carycomic Says:

    But, Huck could never seem to hold down one steady job. He even worked as a dogcatcher, once!

    One might call that “collaborating with the enemy.”
    😉

    Maybe the two of them should have gone into the “cotton-pickin’ business.” 😉

      I remember prize lines from the show like, “Get your cotton-pickin’ pinkies off my pumpkin pie!” I confess to having a soft spot for the true-blue guy…even if his singing of “My Darlin’ Clementine” was a bit off-key.
