Behind the scenes

Created by Hanna-Barbera Productions, he made his debut in 1958 as a supporting character in The Huckleberry Hound Show. Yogi Bear was the first breakout character created by Hanna-Barbera, and was eventually more popular than Huckleberry Hound. In January 1961 he was given his own show, The Yogi Bear Show, sponsored by Kellogg's, which included the segments Snagglepuss and Yakky Doodle. Hokey Wolf replaced his segment on The Huckleberry Hound Show.

Like many Hanna-Barbera characters, Yogi's personality and mannerisms were based on a popular celebrity of the time. Art Carney's Ed Norton character on The Honeymooners was said to be Yogi's inspiration; his voice mannerisms broadly mimic Carney as Norton. Norton, in turn, received influence from Borscht Belt and comedians of vaudeville.

Voice actors

From the time of the character's debut until 1988, Yogi was voiced by longtime Hanna-Barbera voice actor, Daws Butler. After Butler's death in 1988, Greg Burson stepped in to perform the role, having been personally taught by Butler on how to voice Yogi. Burson died in 2008.
