A combination of Borscht Belt comedian and Hanna-Barbera animation, Yogi Bear was a clever enough creation that more than 50 years later, we still impersonate his "pic-a-nic" basket and "Ay, Boo Boo!"
Inspired by Art Carney's Ed Norton from "The Honeymooners" and originally voiced by Daws Butler, Yogi always has had an intelligence that surpasses your typical mammalia.
