Yogi Bear

After Alvin finished around October of 2009, I was out of work, which was fine, I wanted some time to just "be". Five months later with my money coffers empty, I came back to Rhythm and Hues to help work on Yogi. It was, and is, very good to be back and see familiar faces. Making money is also good because, well, I like money, I... I like money a lot.


Somebody please help me.

But from what I understand, the buzz from Joe internet is that this is a turd of an idea. The idea of Yogi being remade has struck a cord amongst many who watched the cartoon back in the day and think that a re-imagination of it will pollute the memory of the original, but then again what else is new. Remakes are being spit out at a fever pitch and will be for some time. But then there is the plus side to it that the old curmudgeons seem to neglect when they are screaming "Back in my day!".

Yogi bear is an old cartoon, as in 1950/60's old, and the one thing that seems to not be faltering in originality is children's Saturday cartoons. No matter how big many of the classics were, their heyday was decades before the current target audience was born. Give a child the option to watch Spongebob vs (insert hanna barbera beloved classic) they will undoubtedly watch Spongebob.

Who wouldn't?

I know I already lost a few of you with that last statement but let me get to my point. Alvin and the Chipmunks 2 won the kids choice award of 2010. Say what you will about the movie, but kids adore it, in the exact same way you odored (insert hanna barbera beloved classic) when you were their age. Alvin is not as old as yogi but already the cloud of obscurity was looming above it as the children that watched it age and turn grey (which includes me). These remakes ,which many scoff at, give the old beloved classics a foothold in the current generation. It creates a hungry audience for those old classics and it saves them from the shelves for just a little while longer. Although this was probably not the intention of the producers.

In the long run it gives the old classics a fighting chance to keep on being known as a beloved classic. As long as the film is not just a empty shell of the original, whose existence does nothing but cause harm to the past, present, and future, then I say go for it.


MOTHERFUCKERS!

But don't get me wrong. Its not like I desire an endless cascade of remakes. Movies like Fantastic Mr. Fox I think are genius, who's creativeness need to be encouraged and heavily reworded. I'm just saying give it a chance and watch it before formulating your opinion. Because you may never know when something good will come out of what you thought was a bad idea, and when from a good idea comes a really, really, rubber nipple bad idea.

Didn't gripe about that one being made did ya?

Yes, I just played the Batman & Robin card. In the end a movie is what it is. Be it an original idea, remake, or yet another super hero movie, all we can do is wait, watch, and hope the nipple work was done tastefully.



I'm also calling the the absolute last cartoon reboot will be.....Captain planet.... starring Ben Stiller

Admit it, you want to see it.

I expect royalties. BLUE STEEL! blue steel.
