Spinning off of the smash hit ABC Saturday Superstar Movie, Yogi's Ark Lark, Yogi's Gang took Yogi Bear and crew to the airwaves weekly to continue their environmentally minded missions. And what a crew! Nothing shy of a gathering at the Hall of Justice could compare to the roll call that resounded out of Yogi's Gang: Yogi and Boo Boo, Huckleberry Hound, Snagglepuss, Quick Draw McGraw and Baba Looey, Atom Ant, Secret Squirrel and Morocco Mole, Wally Gator, Squiddly Diddly, Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy, Touche? Turtle, Peter Potamus, Magilla Gorilla and more!
More than just a gathering of toon titans, Yogi's Gang marked the much welcome return of H-B's original animal stars to regular cartoon rotations, albeit on a propeller-driven, flying ark. And considering the challenges Yogi takes on, it's a good thing he stocked up on superstars! This 2-Disc, 16-Episode Collection includes Yogi's Ark Lark.
A week from tomorrow, on February 19th
, the Warner Archive Collection will release Yogi's Gang - The Complete Series
on DVD. The cost of this 2-disc MOD (manufacture on demand) set will be $29.95 SRP, for 16 episodes running 392 minutes. It will initially be available only to U.S. residents via the studio's WBshop.com online store, but should be available globally later on through Amazon's CreateSpace program. In the meantime here's a button link to pre-order it, followed by the package art:
