Dear Jellystone Visitors, Happy holidays from the Big City! Boo Boo and I left Jellystone Park to spend the most wonderful time of the year metropolitan-style, with friends Snagglepuss, Quick Draw McGraw and the gang! Luckily, I outwitted Ranger Smith with my department store Santa disguise. Our adventure led me to Judy, a girl who wants to spend more time with her workaholic dad. Who knew my love of pic-a-nic baskets would reunite them at a big city Christmas picnic in the park? Join the merrymaking, but get here before the basket is empty! The Flintstones, Huckleberry Hound, Auggie Doggie, and more friends also join us, making this Christmas caper full of our favorites. -- Yours Truly, Yogi BearWritten by

Huckleberry Hound, Snagglepuss, Quick Draw McGraw, Augie Doggie, Doggie Daddy, and more show up at Jellystone to spend Christmas with Yogi. But Yogi and Boo Boo have left Jellystone so the gang, along with Ranger Smith, sets out to find them. In the city, Yogi and Boo Boo find a little lonely rich girl. Her father is too busy for her. This is a pretty disturbing part of the story as her father even lets her out of the limo onto the streets of a big city by herself and seems to not have the slightest bit of doubt about his choice. Then, when she doesn't return to the limo on time, he shows some concern...in the form of bossing a security guard around to go look for her. Geez what a parent this girl has! So as Yogi and Boo are helping the little girl and getting into more trouble, their friends are busy looking for them. This results in a number of Hanna-Barbera cameos such as Wally Gator, Magilla Gorilla, and even Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble. Must've been some kind of time warp for that last one.
All in all, it's a pleasant cartoon. Most of the humor fell flat for me but I'm not the biggest Hanna-Barbera fan. Still, it's a watchable special and would probably be a bigger treat for HB fans to see all these characters interacting.
