The New Yogi Bear Show (also known as Hanna-Barbera's Yogi Bear Show) is an American animated television series produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions that aired in syndication from September 12 to November 11, 1988. It contained forty-five new episodes combined with reruns of the original 1961 series. Pared down from some of the other versions (the all-star cartoons with Huckleberry Hound, Quick Draw McGraw, Top Cat, and other Hanna-Barbera characters), this series featured only Yogi, Boo-Boo, Cindy and Ranger Smith, with episodes set in Jellystone Park.

New characters were introduced for the series, such as, Ranger Roubideux (Ranger Smith's assistant who is chubby and tiny-sized), Ninja Raccoon (a Japanese raccoon cub who wears a kimono), and Yogi's mother. The series marked the debut of Greg Burson as the voice of Yogi following Daws Butler's death on May 18, 1988, four months prior to the series' debut.
