HBO Max has unveiled a vibrant, character-packed poster image for Jellystone! — the streamer’s upcoming reimagining of Yogi Bear which throws an epic ensemble cast of Hanna-Barbera favorites together into one delightful cartoony comedy, modernized and reinvigorated for a new generation of fans. The Max Original series — helmed by showrunner/exec producer C.H. Greenblatt (Chowder, Harvey Beaks) and produced by Warner Bros. Animation — premieres Thursday, July 29.
Welcome to Jellystone, a quaint little community chock-full of colorful characters. It would be a peaceful place, if it weren’t for the hilarious personalities constantly getting themselves, and the town, into trouble! Yogi Bear, Cindy Bear and Boo Boo are surgeons at Jellystone Hospital, Jabberjaw is hungry for a promotion at Magilla Gorilla’s swanky clothing shop, El Kabong fights crime, and Doggie Daddy takes helicopter parenting of Augie Doggie to new heights. With Huckleberry Hound as mayor and Top Cat running the streets, there’s never a dull moment in this madcap little town!
Greenblatt voices several characters as well as running the show, including Doggie Daddy, Boo Boo, Peter Potamus and Benny. The voice cast also features Jeff Bergman, Jim Conroy, Georgie Kidder, Grace Helbig, Niccole Thurman, Ron Funches, Paul F. Tompkins and more. See the full voice/character list and the previously released trailer here.
Ahead of the Season 1 premiere, fans can catch a sneak peek at Jellystone! during the show’s Comic-Con@Home panel on Saturday, July 24 at 1 p.m. PT. The discussion will feature Greenblatt, Bergman (Yogi Bear), Helbig (Cindy Bear), Thurman (Jabberjaw) and supervising director Ian Wasseluk. (Psst! Check out our quick guide to animation at the Con.)
