Poor man's yogi bear
29 August 2002 | by purakekSee all my reviews

Ah, yes the 70s! Afros, nehru jackets and that cool jive talkin' in the air. And Yogi Bear is getting to be stale. Why not an update? A bear with an afro, two dumb sidekicks and a zoo keeper with an even dumber assistant. It's McHale's zoo with the groove on, almost. Hair Bear is the top bruin in the zoo, he escapes to party outside and is mightily afraid of the forest (a threat by the keeper to make his bunch stop all that loitering). It could have been fun, considering kids get their those of pop culture from cartoons. But the animation style offers nothing new and the stories were picked up off from Flintstone plot rejects. The animators should have watched Sesame Street and learn from it.
