Beer Bear-el

Trouble’s always brewing when Yogi Bear is around. For example, here he is with a pic-a-nic basket climbing up the side of a building.

There’s a particular reason he’s doing that. Reader Greg Gabry points out this is in Jackson, Michigan. Here’s a different view of the building.

We’ve checked. Boo Boo isn’t climbing the wall on the other side. The Ranger wouldn’t like that, you know.

By the way, it appears the Loyal Order of Moose Hall is across the street. We didn’t see Bullwinkle about.


  1. “By the way, it appears the Loyal Order of Moose Hall is across the street. We didn’t see Bullwinkle about.”

    Are you referring to an Elks Club?

    Thanks for posting this. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always loved the use of classic cartoon characters by businesses, especially small businesses. I don’t know why; I just find it endearing. Near where I live, there is a little place called Jimco Windows. I think they windows they either sell or used to sell are Owens-Corning products, because for years they had on one of their outside walls a painting of the Pink Panther looking out a window. When I was a kid, I used to get a thrill passing by that place and seeing the Pink Panther. In recent years, they’ve painted it over, either because they no longer sell Owens-Corning windows or because the painting was getting too deteriorated, or both. Whatever the reason, the kid inside me now gets a little sad and sighs whimsicallly whenever I drive past the building.

    1. At least the use of Pink Panther there was legit (as per Owens-Corning's use of the guy). Stuff like this is pretty much grey area usage.

      There's a bar near me called "Daffy's" that has used the familiar duck in it's signage for instance.

    2. No, I'm not referring to the Elks. I'm referring to the Moose. Two different organisations.

    3. In Panama City, Florida in the early '70s there was a TV repair shop with the Pink Panther on its wall and signage, called the "Penk Panthur" (sic) TV shop. That misspelling annoyed me when I was a kid... perhaps they were trying to avoid a trademark suit.

    4. It wouldn't surprise me if that was the case. Odd they would use that spelling.

  2. Yogi's paying tribute to Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" album cover.

  3. Are you in one of the Jellystone Parks? There not as good as you think. Very little to do with the show. Nothing like the Flintstones one which has 100% to do with the show.

  4. Love it. I want one for the side of my house.
