It isn’t often that I learn something completely new about a Golden Age Hanna-Barbera TV show – or about Disney comics from the equally “Golden Age” of Dell and Gold Key. But, here are some recent posts, from two great Bloggers, that I found fascinating.
YOWP, discusses the YOGI BEAR BIRTHDAY SPECIAL, produced and broadcast in 1961 – though I never saw it until the 1988 syndicated YOGI BEAR SHOW. It also concludes the YOGI BEAR SHOW DVD set of 2005, so you can all see it there. I always had the comic, produced by Dell for the occasion (at top), but never knew of the show!
Because I never missed the YOGI BEAR SHOW in its original early ’60, Kellogg’s-sponsored, syndicated edition, the fact that this apparent one-shot broadcast special somehow completely escaped my notice makes it all the more fascinating. Indeed, I wonder if it was broadcast in the New York market at all! You’ll notice comments from me and our pal “Scarecrow33” in that post.

Blogging is (or should be) a wonderful two-way street of sharing knowledge on “the things that interest us”. And, I’m happy to offer further exposure to these fine efforts!
