Yogi Bear Headed For A Theater Near You

In the tradition of "Scooby Doo", "Garfield", and especially "Alvin And The Chipmunks", Warner Brothers has announced plans for a live-action cgi film of none other than that smarter than average bear, Yogi and his buddy Boo Boo.

Ash Brannon (Surf's Up) is slated to direct this version of the classic Hanna-Barbera character.  He is also the co-writer of the project.

Yogi Bear actually got his start in 1958 as a supporting character on "The Huckleberry Hound Show and has appeared in many different saturday morning shows since then.  His character was modeled after Norton, from "The Honeymooners", played by Art Carney.  He still appears on the Boomerang channel, owned by Cartoon Network.

There is no word yet on whether Cindy Bear, Yogi's gal pal, will be appearing in the movie or who will play Mr. Ranger.

In case you've forgotten, or in case you have never heard of him, here is a classic Yogi Cartoon for you to watch.
