The Assassination of Yogi Bear

Updated on December 19, 2010

I just watched on of the funniest videos ever: Yogi Bear: Trailer "Booboo Kills Yogi". With the new 3D Yogi Bear movie out this month someone has made an alternate ending. Be warned this video is a parody and not a remake of the popular children's cartoon movie by Warner Brothers.

The alternate ending of Yogi Bear is a parody of “The Assassination of Jesse James” when the coward Robert Ford shoots Jesse James in the back.

The video opens with Yogi's signature line “Hey Booboo!”. There is no reply from a teary eyed Booboo sitting in a chair holding a shotgun. Booboo looks at Yogi without saying a word then you can see Booboo's eyes dart to the right. Yogi looks in that direction with a long silence then says, “Don't that poster look dusty?” The poster is a wanted poster for Yogi Bear with a $5000 dollar reward for killing Yogi Bear. Booboo then shoots Yogi in the back. The animator did an awesome job capturing the inward struggle Booboo is feeling betraying his friend by showing close-ups of the eyes.

Jesse James was a criminal. Jesse and his gang robbed banks, stage coaches and killed many while doing it. While Jesse was a vicious killer Yogi only stole picnic baskets and no body ever got hurt. It is quite satirical to compare Yogi Bear with Jesse James. That is what makes it funny.

Yogi Bear was created by Hannah-Barbara and first appeared as a supporting character in 1958 on The Huckleberry Hound Show. Yogi Bear became more popular than Huckleberry Hound. And consequently most people can tell you who Yogi is. Yogi has been entertaining us since 1958.

Now Yogi will appear on the big screen in 3D. Yogi has come a long way since 1958! Recently 25 year old Edmund Earle seen the trailer for the new 3D Yogi and decided to make a parody. So Earle created a much darker ending for the children's film. These types of parodies have a way of becoming viral on the internet. Thus making for the movie to become very popular.

Earle claims the parody does not contain any original footage of the Warner Brothers film and has been advertised as a parody. Earl made the film by himself with help from a friend for the voice only. Hopefully the executives at Warner Brothers will leave this one alone and just take advantage to the free advertising this parody will bring in.
