Acrylic on acetate and gouache on paper
Collection of Trent Claus
Yogi Bear first appeared as a supporting cast member of the Huckleberry Hound Show in 1958, but he proved so popular that he was given his own show in 1961. The Yogi Bear Show initially ran for 2 years, but Yogi has been on TV in various shows and commercials ever since. This 3-cel setup on matching hand-painted backgrounds of Jellystone Park features Yogi along with his trusty sidekick Boo-Boo.
