The stakes have never been higher for Yogi and Boo Boo. It's more than Yogi's latest pic-a-nic basket caper that's giving Ranger Smith a headache: it's the fate of the park itself. Corrupt Mayor Brown has been squandering the city's cash and now plans to cover his financial indiscretions and bankroll his bid for the governor's office by selling Jellystone to loggers for a nice fat check. This means foreclosing on Yogi and Boo Boo's "Cave, Sweet Cave" and displacing all their animal friends, not to mention Ranger Smith, while depriving local families of the unspoiled beauty the park provides.
Action Animated Adventure - This is a live action/animated 3D comedy based on the classic Hanna-

seat to the computer animated characters.
