From the Mouths of Bears

Here’s one of those scenes you have to watch animated to appreciate the subtlety of the movement. Yogi’s mouth forms all kinds of shapes when he speaks. His head tilts ever-so-slightly at times. Sometimes Yogi moves a bit, sometimes Huck moves a bit.

The shapes and movement sure remind me of Ed Love’s animation. Love didn’t animate any cartoons at Hanna-Barbera during the first season of the Huck show when this was done; his first cartoons were in 1959. And I wonder if Mike Lah did the layouts.


  1. Hard to say without seeing it move, but probably Mike Lah animating.

  2. Huck doesn't move really, and Yogi's head is the only thing moving. Shows us how different limited and full animation are.
