Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this classic cartoon has an innocent, playful quality, and kids can easily identify with Yogi, who constantly gets into mild mischief. Overall, no bad examples are set. An interesting note: Yogi's character is heavily influenced by The Honeymooners.
Is It Any Good?
Slight violence is the only potentially eyebrow-raising element. When Yogi gets into trouble, he sometimes finds himself running away from bullets. But even though weapons find their way onto this show from time to time, blood is never seen, and Yogi never retaliates with a weapon. Everything else, including some light romance, is innocent.
When watching Yogi Bear, expect fun antics and silly adventures. Yogi's trademark saying -- "I'm smarter than your average bear" -- is catchy and endearing, because his lack of cleverness is usually what gets him into trouble in the first place. This aspect of Yogi's personality can be extremely relatable for kids; sometimes they think they know more than they do, and that's why they get into trouble, too.
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.
