Cartoon Art Carney Yogi Bear was a guest-starring cartoon on The Huckleberry Hound Show for a couple years before he got his own title. He may have hummed scat incessantly, but it took a while to get some Christmas songs out of him, the godless beast.
In 1980 the special ‘Yogi’s First Christmas’ was broadcast to mild notice. It’s a contest with an evil dude to save the lodge at Yellowstone Park, or something.
Speaking of irreligiousity, [RERUN] Cindy Bear sings a “Mistletoe Song” about macking on the Yogi, which terrfies and delights Boo Boo bear.
“It’s Our Favorite Time of the Year” seems like the same song from the Flintstones, but listen carefully. It’s worse.
The opening number kicks off the whole magilla with a bevvy of guest stars (no Yogi) singing. “Coming up Christmas Time” is a kidddie classic.
