D3Publisher has announced a worldwide licensing agreement with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for Yogi Bear: The Video Game. Yogi Bear: The Video Game will be for Wii and Nintendo DS and is slated for worldwide release this holiday season in conjunction with the big screen release of the all new movie Yogi Bear that’s coming on December 17, 2010.

In Yogi Bear: The Video Game, help Yogi Bear (voiced by Dan Akroyd, who also stars as Yogi in the movie) save Jellystone Park from being shut down forever. Players will be able to explore, jump, crawl, belly slide, sneak, and zip-line through majestic Jellystone Park locales in search of wildlife, adventure, and sometimes the distraction of a pic-a-nic basket or two! However, be careful, Ranger Smith doesn’t tolerate disturbance of his campers and keeps a watchful eye over the park. Luckily there is Yogi Bear’s trusty sidekick Boo Boo, to help Yogi get through difficult challenges and antics.

  • “With over 50 years of history, the Yogi Bear license has proven to be smarter than the average bear,” said Bill Anker, vice president of business development and licensing, D3P. “In time for the Hollywood release of the film, the video game promises to deliver the full Yogi Bear experience that parents can enjoy with their children.”

    Based on the film directed by Eric Brevig and characters created by Hanna-Barbera Production, Yogi Bear: The Video Game is under development by Monkey Bar Games.

    Here’s a trailer for the Yogi Bear movie about “A documentary filmmaker traveling to Jellystone Park to shoot a project and soon crosses paths with Yogi Bear, his sidekick Boo-Boo, and Ranger Smith.”

    That’s not the Yogi Bear I remember watching in early morning cartoons as a kid. What do you think of this live-action adaptation with a new voice cast?

      I hate it when they make kid’s movies dumb/corny, especially old cartoons that they probably never even heard of. They should of just made the whole thing with cg and found voice actors that actually sound like the originals and not just big names.

    • Yeah, but it’s not even the mix of two worlds with CGI and live-action. It’s really the jokes that aren’t funny. I just watched the first episode of the cartoon on Youtube:
      You can see in the first minute how it just works as a whole, the jokes a chuckle-worthy at least, even as a “grown-up”, you know.

    • I think you are nuts

    • I’m still disturbed that this is going to be a movie at all. Yogi bear should remain a very *flat* 2D tv cartoon. Do people never know when to just leave well enough alone?

    • I agree with you guys, although I also agree more with Ferry that it simply isn’t funny enough.

      I think there is something to be said for reviving an old property for a whole new generation, and those kids won’t probably have even seen the old show.

      But you gotta do it justice and make sure that it lives up to the property, which is something that seems ever and ever elusive. I’m very interested though to see if this movie absolutely bombs or does well.

    • I have a feeling it will bomb. I am not basing this off of anything really concrete, but I have yet to meet one person who even plans to go see it (or plans to take their kids to go see it, if they have them.) Secondly, it visually resembles the ill-fated Garfield movies. That can in no way be a good thing.
