Merrier Than The Average Bear
As you know from previous posts, Yogi Bear is a festive Christmas fave here in Tulgey Wood. Designed to make the reader feel all Christmasy and cozy what with sleighs, woods, caves and Christmas trees, Yogi Bear: A Christmas Visit is an enchanting Little Golden Book from Yogi's heyday (make that hey-hey-hey) in 1961. And attention, Disney fans: the entrancing illustrations are by Disney Legend Burny Mattinson and his wife Sylvia. (Click on the illustrations for a larger view.) To see even more of this classic seasonal storybook, check out the must-see blog of our favorite Hanna-Barbera pal (well, our favorite after Yogi Bear…and Huck Hound…and the Jetsons…and the Flintstones…), Yowp!
