History

Yogi Bear has appeared in numerous comic books, animated TV shows and films .

He made his debut in 1958 as a supporting character in The Huckleberry Hound Show.

He was created by Hanna-Barbera and in 1961 he was given his own show.

Yogi Bear was one of several Hanna-Barbera characters to have a collar. This allowed animators to keep his body static, redrawing only his head each frame  when he spoke .This was one of the ways it allowed them to cut costs, reducing the number of drawings  needed for a seven minute cartoon .
