The September 5th comic is a lovely scan of the complete comic from somewhere on the internet. The others are
Yogi is smarter-than-average in the September 5th edition. Very nice expressions.
Yogi decides to joy-ride two weeks in a row. He’s far more destructive in this September 12th comic than he was in, say, the cartoon Scooter Looter. His goofy expression as he ploughs through a defenceless tree and a cabin is more akin to Woody Woodpecker than Yogi. The composition is great and so is the perspective (note the silhouette Boo Boo in the final panel on the top row). The writer spares us a rhyme in this.
“Tyke” and “dike”? Yike! The rhymes are back on September 19th. Did the writer resist the temptation to put Peter Potamus in the balloon? I especially like the swirling panel in the top row. This comic hearkens back to another first-season Yogi Bear cartoon, The Buzzin’ Bear (1958). Of course, he ended up piloting a chopper in the ending credits of his own show in 1961.
Food over Cindy? That’s tellin’ her, Yogi! Again, nice composition in the opening panel of the September 26th with lots going on but no clutter. Note the cute squirrel in the first panel. Yogi has some more neat poses here, including a skip-walk in the top row and a stroll in the bottom one. I like the variety in the of his hands (paws) as well. Boo Boo gets this comic off, but we get other woodland creatures and the native stereotypes. Yogi inventively uses a beaver; he’ll do the same in a December comic. My favourite character is the dog with the feathers in the first panel, second row. He doesn’t look like he’s excited to go to a party.
The stereotypes stick around next month. Please stick around for more comics in four weeks.
