Yogi Bear movie clips 7 Minutes of Yogi Bear Movie Clips

Let’s face it – little kids are gonna love Yogi Bear. Why? Because it’s a movie in which a cartoon bear wears a hat and tie, speaks in a goofy voice, is continually smacked in the face with pies and flying picnic baskets, and will likely have committed close to 1,000 over-the-top pratfalls by the time the end credits start to roll.

Seven minutes of footage from Yogi Bear has been released and you’re likely here to watch it because you need to know if you can survive 82 minutes of this. In 3D. In an actual movie theater that’s populated primarily by individuals under the age of 10 and their committed parents.

The last Yogi Bear trailer failed to offer any information concerning the actual plot of the movie, which revolves around the attempts of the titular bear (voiced by Dan Aykroyd), his tiny pal Boo Boo (Justin Timberlake), Ranger Smith (Tom Cavanagh), and documentary filmmaker Rachel Johnson (Anna Faris) to save their beloved Yellowstone National Park from the greedy Mayor Brown (Andrew Daly). Much slapstick and comic mischief ensue, naturally.

Everyone knows that kids are the target demographic for this movie. They’re the ones who will crack up when Yogi flies out at the screen, snacking on chips in slow-motion; every time he falls off a building; gets lit on fire while water-skying; smacks his butt on a log fence; or the many other ways the CGI creature undoubtedly has to comically endure pain in the pic. But is there anything that the elder crowd will find charming, amusing, or possibly even funny?

Find out the answer by watching the Yogi Bear clips (courtesy of Collider) below:

We won’t deny that the computer animation, green screen F/X, and the 3D gimmicks (like the one with the turtle) in Yogi Bear look painfully cheap – or that Cavanagh and Faris appear embarrassed/bored, even when they’re not chatting with their CGI co-stars. Kids aren’t going to care about the lazy screenwriting or the utterly predictably storyline. They want to see Yogi get smacked multiple times by a variety of objects and, let’s be honest – adults will probably be cheering when that happens too.

Perhaps it’s best for grown-ups who have to take their kids to see Yogi Bear (or the intoxicated teenagers who decide to check the movie out) to prepare as they would for an exam at the dentist: grit your teeth, set your jaw, and just hope you’re not in too much pain afterwards.

Yogi Bear hits 2D and 3D theaters around the U.S. this Friday, December 17th.

  1. Wow. What next for Hanna/Barbera? SWAT Cats?

    • I´d love to see a live action Jetsons movie. I loved that show when I was a kid…

      • Be careful what you wish for. They actually make it.

        • Hahaha, I know. And when they do, I´ll drink a gallon of gasoline, so I can enjoy it… :P

      • There was actually a live action Jetsons movie on the drawing board a long while ago but I haven’t heard anything in a very long time.


        • That would have been 10.000 times better than this crap. Seriously…

    • Oh Merc…don’t give them IDEAS!!!

  2. Wow, 7 minutes too long for me. I guess I’m missing the “kitch” value of this or I just simply wasn’t a big enough Yogi fan. Wow.

  3. Does anyone else think that a SWAT Kats movie would be a good idea if it was PG-13? Just a thought I had from an episode last night.

    • I don’t know that I’d watch a Swat Kats movie, but I’d listen to the theme song for an hour and a half. Epic.

  4. Kids will definitely love this. Thats all that matters.

    • Yeah, I’m actually hearing that for what it is (definitely a movie aimed at the little ‘uns) it’s OK.

      I missed the screening last Saturday and I don’t know that I’m willing to pay to watch and review this, though. 8)


      • From what I´ve seen in the trailer, it´s a waste of money…

  5. Okay I think Im gonna pass on this one. I normally enjoy taking my nephew to stuff like this but I think I will wait on QuickDraw McGraw.

    • [*sarcastically*] But just THINK about it, HG!

      Quick Draw doing the Hanna-Barbera version of “The Mask of Zorro” in “The Strings of El Kabong”!!!

  6. I get sad when I see CGI Yogi & boo-Boo. Is it really that much cheaper than animating them the traditional way the characters were rendered?

    What’s next, CGI Space Ghost or Herculoids?

    • Yogi Bear! :P

    • Problems with this movie:

      1. Nobody seems to have learned from the CGI Scooby-Doo films.

      2. While Timberlake voices a reasonably accurate Boo-Boo (surprisingly), Dan Aykroyd cannot imitate voices worth a pile of (quoting Jabba The Hutt in RotJ) “bantha poo-doo”; his Jimmy Carter was weaker than Jimmy Carter doing Jimmy Carter.

      3. Going to the 3-D well when truly/deeply unnecessary.

      4. Opening against TRON: Legacy, as if it has a CHANCE of stealing TRON’s thunder…this is so bad that if I got it as a free rental on Netflix, I’d sue Netflix for my money back on the rental.

  7. I’ll pass on this, I prefer the original cartoon

    • Ditto, cartoon was cute!

      Two Flintstones filsm were made, and no Jetsons?

  8. Airing 12% of the movie online for free cries: “Somebody please get to know me so you can like me!”

    Desperation just feels so icky… and desperate.

    • Exactly…it’s like Sally Field’s Oscar acceptance of “You LIKE me! You really REALLY like me!”…except the only Oscar this will get close to ends with the name Mayer and is processed meat parts you’d rather not know the origin of.
