A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Mixed messages- some themes around being a good friend and trying to help other animals, but other times when characters aren't very good role models.
Positive Role Models
Characters are mostly goofy and sometimes intentionally hurt other characters (physically or verbally), but they do have generally altruistic motivations.
Violence & Scariness
Some fantasy aggression (whacking Yogi with a frying pan, etc.), and arguing between characters. Some ambiguous episode endings where it's not clear if characters are rescued from perilous situations or not.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Jellystone! is a series that features classic Hanna-Barbera characters Yogi Bear (voiced by Jeff Bergman), Boo Boo (C.H. Greenblatt), Huckleberry Hound (Jim Conroy), Snagglepuss (Dana Snyder), and more. Like the original cartoons starring this crew, there's cartoon violence and scariness throughout. Characters whack each other on the head, are crushed by a giant ape, etc. Some episodes end ambiguously, and it's not clear whether characters escape peril. Characters argue and sometimes call each other names like "dumb." Additional language includes "butt," "heck," and "dang." Romance isn't a major part of the plot, but there are some body part jokes, mentions of dating/finding a character attractive, and a recurring bare-chested male character. While the characters are generally well-meaning, they're not exactly role models.
Is It Any Good?
The silly, absurd storylines in this series are fairly entertaining and definitely feel reminiscent of the Saturday morning cartoons of the 80s and 90s. Grown-ups may be disappointed in the lack of positive role modeling happening in the show. One one hand, there's probably an argument to be made for letting kids enjoy the simple (if sometimes violent) pleasures of slapstick cartoons and silliness for silliness's sake. On the other hand, it feels like the show creators could have added some tidbits here and there to give the show substance and make it more beneficial for its kid viewers.
Older viewers may enjoy seeing some of their favorite Hanna-Barbera characters, but the nostalgia factor is dampened by the new setting and focus on other characters. Yogi doesn't steal any "pic-a-nic" baskets since they're not in the forest, and he's much less the star of the show than previous series.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
