Bfett20: Whats next? Harold Ramis as Snagglepuss?

and Fat Albert starring Ernie Hudson.

Seriousy though - Justin Timbertwat? Could they not have found an actual voice actor
to play BooBoo? Not like it matters, because this makes John K's Yogi short
look like La Jetee.

Why are the Ghostbusters doing this to me?


gunther_bumpass: and Fat Albert starring Ernie Hudson.

Actually since we already had Fat Albert, I'd go with "Hong Kong Phooey" starring Ernie Hudson.

/I'd honestly just like to see them try that, if only to have them cast Scarlett Johansson as a sexy Rosemary.

Well, it was a totally live action Fat Albert, with Kenan Thompson playing Fat.

That sounds horrible. See, that's my problem with Bill Cosby.
He lets something like that get made, and shuts down the (immaturely)
hilarious "House Of Cosbys". Ain't no justice in this worl'.

I didn't see it, it was in 2004, before Kenan went to SNL. But, yeah, I think it was pretty bad.

Actually, of all the Hanna Barbara cartoons, if written decently with some decent wit, and getting the voices done well, HKP could actually not totally suck. The basis of the show actually sets up for a decent story if done right, it isn't as forced as some other ones, like Marmaduke.

Although I'd fear they'd put in Kevin James as Sarge.

I guess my thinking isn't far off:

It's a trend that started a few years ago - Hollywood seems to think that having celebrities as voice actors gets more people in the seats than relatively unknown professional voice actors. They're probably right. Like anything though, there are some that are great, some that suck. The same can be said about voice actors.. how often have you heard the same damn squeaky 'Stitch' voice in a cartoon? Way too much. In summary, it's because everything is about marketing and 98% of it sucks but people will see it anyway.

Have these people farking heard of Pixar?

How much FAIL does this have on it

1) Very half-assed stunt casting (get some real VAs who can do the original voices)

2) Animation mixed with live action only worked well in Roger Rabbit

3) No discernable story, but some great jokes involving Yogi falling down and getting hit on the ass

root88: You people know this is a movie for 5 year olds, right?

And how many 5 yr olds know who Yogi Bear is? I hate this "Oh it's stupid because it's for kids" excuse. Just because it's a kids' movie doesn't mean it has to be pants-on-head retarded. See Pixar for example.

Galvatron Zero: The parents likely *do* know who Yogi Bear is, and they are the ones paying for the tickets. There's a reason why all of 80's properties are making a comeback in a big way

Yogi Bear is older than the '80s.

True, but as I said before, I grew up in the 80s and you were much more limited in access to cartoons. You had to watch Mr. Cartoon, the Bozo Show, USA Cartoon Express or the equivalent to get much. Hanna-Barbera never went away. They recycled that stuff and rode those ponies for DECADES. And then, when there wasn't anymore life in the old mare, they reinvented or put them all together in some megashow, like Laff-a-lympics or something. Hell, it was said realizing the number of Yogi Bear, Flinstones, and Scooby Doo ripoffs they did. Not only did they rip off other shows/characters, but then they ripped THEMSELVES off.

I guarantee sometime during the 80s there was a hip version of Yogi wherein he either surfed or skateboarded.

LEAVE YOGI ALONE!

How farking dare anyone out there make fun of Yogi after all he has been through!

He lost his mother when she fell off a cliff, his father was was killed by bees in an unfortunate "honey-borrowing" misunderstanding. He has two farkin bear cubs.

His wife turned out to be a woman in a bear suit, a cheater, and now he's going through a custody battle. All you people care about is..... how much will this bear amuse me?

HE'S a BEAR! What you don't realize is that Yogi is making you recall all these fond memories of your childhood and all you do is write a bunch of crap about him.

He hasn't been on TV in years. He wants more picnic baskets for a reason because all you people want is MORE! MORE-MORE, MORE: MORE!.

LEAVE HIM ALONE! You are lucky he even got animated for you BASTARDS!
LEAVE YOGI ALONE!.....Please.

Hanna Barbara talked about professionalism and said if Yogi was a professional he would've pulled it off no matter what.

Speaking of professionalism, when is it professional to publicly bash someone who is going through a hard time?

Leave Yogi Alone Please.... !
Leave Yogi Alone!...right now!....I mean it!

Anyone that has a problem with him you deal with me, because he is not well right now.

LEAVE HIM ALONE!

Just to make you feel old, someone who would be able to remember even that would have to be at least 23 now.

So, this is definitely aimed at parents who like movies rehashing their childhood cartoons to bring their kids to.

It's also aimed at kicking those parents right in the crotch.

Also thanks for mentioning the "kid version ripoff" in the wake of Muppet Baby success. I thought of it mid rant but didn't want to continue, but the Flintstones kids one was exceptionally bad.

From the wiki for the Abominable Yo Yogi!: "The show did not do well in the ratings, and was cancelled in the summer of 1992 (July 25) in order for NBC to reformat its Saturday morning schedule to teenage audiences and to launch the Saturday edition of The Today Show."

That's right, Saturday morning cartoons were murdered by Poochie.

I still occasionally get the theme song from that show stuck in my head, which then means I have to start drinking to make it go away. I didn't even like the show when I was a kid, but I think I watched it because there was nothing else I wanted to watch in that time slot, so I had to watch something till the next show came on.

Yeah, that's pretty much what the Poochie episode was satirizing. It was about the studios trying to get all the old cartoon to appeal to kids by making them "hip" and "edgy" and ultimately ruining them.

I had no idea they were even making a Yogi Bear movie. I'm hesitant to even watch the trailer but I guess I'll go ahead and...OH GOD! Why?

*runs away crying*
 
2010-07-29 03:52:56 PM  
The reason they make these movies is because people just like you drag their special snowflakes to watch them. You load them up with sugar and pop in the old DVD of The Chimpmunks Sqeuakquel because god knows you can't deal with those monsters you spawned.

'Ghostbusters' not withstanding, after all we do have 'Ghostbusters II' as a counterpart, Aykroyd is such a POS as an actor I wonder what kind of pictures he has of various movie industry executives.

Yeah, The Blues Bros was ok. GB was ok. Even My Girl was ok but when he showed up in Driving Miss Daisy it just about wrecked the movie.

And the ratio of good to bad is even worse: Neighbors, Doctor Detroit, Spies like Us, The Couch Trip, Caddyshack II, Loose Cannons, Nothing But Trouble, North, Exit To Eden, Christmas with the Kranks, Pearl Harbor, War, Inc., and FINALLY
Blues Brothers 2000.

Stop watching cartoons, stupid. Why are you blaming the creators of the movie for this? It's going to make a shiat ton of money. I would do it too. Blame the douche bags that raise their kids on this garbage or the fact that kids are just stupid and enjoy things like this.

They should do a live action Laff-A-Lympics. Failing that, an Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy movie. I smell crossover potential with a Pixie and Dixie movie.

Then when somebody tries to make a Speed Racer sequel, time it to release a Wacky Races movie the same weekend.

And hire James Cameron to do a Herculoids movie, Avatar style.

Never liked Yogi Bear when I first saw the series. Can't remember when that was, and can't be bothered to look it up on imdb. It was formulaic and cheaply animated.

The Hanna-Barbera stuff always struck me as second rate, especially when compared to Fred Quimby's masterpieces.

As for this abomination, the film companies seem to have surpassed Sturgeon's Law by at least two orders of magnitude.
