Yogi Bear received negative reviews from critics, but was a surprise box office success.
Yogi Bear and Boo Boo are two brown bears who have a penchant for stealing picnic basketsfrom visitors to Jellystone Park, while park rangers Smith and Jones try to prevent them from doing so. Meanwhile, Rachel, a nature documentary maker, arrives at the park to make a film about Yogi as a rare example of a talking bear. To this end, she fits Boo Boo with a bow tie containing a miniature camera, so she can get footage of Yogi in his natural habitat.
Yogi had promised Smith to stay out of sight during the festival, but Jones convinces him to go ahead with the helping plan. Yogi tries to please the crowd with a waterskiing performance which goes awry when he inadvertently sets hiscape on fire. In the ensuing chaos, the fireworks Smith set up are knocked over and ignited prematurely, launching them into the assembled audience who flee in a panic。
Smith and Rachel admit their romantic feelings about each other. Jones works on the park's entrance booth, handing out leaflets about the rare frog-mouthed turtle to the vastly increased number of visitors, while Yogi and Boo Boo are stealing picnic baskets once again with Ranger Smith and Rachel in pursuit.
