Jellystone! Sneak Preview Proves Smarter Than the Average Bear

Earlier today, Comic-Con@Home virtual attendees were treated to a sneak preview of HBO Max & Warner Bros. Animation's Jellystone!, courtesy of showrunner & EP C.H. Greenblatt and Ian Wasseluk (Supervising Director), as well as voice cast members Jeff Bergman (Yogi Bear), Grace Helbig (Cindy Bear), and Niccole Thurman (Jabberjaw). The series offers reimagined takes on a ton of beloved characters from the Hanna-Barbera world- including Jabberjaw, Top Cat, Snagglepuss, El Kabong, Wally Gator, Johnny Quest & Hadji, Shag Rugg, Captain Caveman, and more, as they live together in the friendly town. And they look out for one another, as you're about to see when something appears to be wrong with Grape Ape. Will a medical professional who's "smarter than the average bear" be enough to fix what's wrong?

Now here's a look at the sneak preview released earlier today, followed by a look back at the official trailer for HBO Max's Jellystone!, hitting the streaming service on July 29:

Welcome to Jellystone, a quaint little community chock-full of colorful characters. It would be a peaceful place, if it weren't for the hilarious personalities constantly getting themselves, and the town, into trouble! Yogi Bear, Cindy Bear, and Boo Boo are surgeons at Jellystone Hospital, Jabberjaw is hungry for a promotion at Magilla Gorilla's swanky clothing shop, El Kabong fights crime, and Doggie Daddy takes helicopter parenting of Augie Doggie to new heights. With Huckleberry Hound as mayor and Top Cat running the streets, there's never a dull moment in this madcap little town!

"I grew up watching tons of Hanna-Barbera cartoons and have a deep love for these characters," said showrunner & EP C.H. Greenblatt (Chowder, Harvey Beaks). "The massive amount of both classic and not-so-classic characters we were able to use from the Hanna-Barbera library is what really makes the Jellystone! universe special. Rather than recreate the feeling of cartoons of the past, we wanted to have silly, weird fun with these characters and expand their personalities to give them more depth. Chances are if there's a character you love, you'll see them somewhere in this world eventually. We hope longtime fans appreciate our take on this world, and we're excited that parents get to introduce and enjoy their favorite Hanna-Barbera characters with their kids."
