The Yogi bear (Yogi Bear in the American original) was conceived by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera
He left Metro Goldwyn Mayer in 1957 and created the famous company "Hanna & Barbera",
after two years of preparation and intense work, the two produced an infinite number of characters and cartoon series that still amuse children of all ages today, among these there is also the very famous Yogi bear.Hanna and Barbera for the ideation of the character of Yogi, they were inspired by the brown bear that populates undisturbed in the beautiful Jellystone park in the United States, visited every day by many tourists. Yogi it is in fact
a very nice brown bear with an intelligence and ingenuity out of the ordinary. Punctually after waking up from his winter hibernation, together with his inseparable friend Bubu, Go to the hunting of lunch boxes of tourists of Jellystone Park, combining a boatload of trouble and provoking the ire of the local custodian, the Ranger Smith.
Yogi is a jovial and always in a good mood bear, characterized by a green cap and a red tie, he does everything to break the strict rules of the park. The cartoons of Yogi have been successful also thanks to the voice of his voice actors who characterize his phlegm and his typical recurring exclamation "Ha
HaHaHa"when some brilliant idea or intuition comes to mind. In fact Yogi, in order to achieve his goals, uses a thousand disguises and as many stratagems.

In almost all cartoons, the two bears always end up being chased by Ranger Smith, whose
main task is to safeguard the peace (and the food) in Jellystone park.
