Yogi Bear Weekend Comics, January 1970

Dennis the Menace a Hanna-Barbera character? Well, young Allen does have some distinct similarities in the Yogi Bear newspaper comics from January 1970. Boo Boo has the month off, but we see Mrs. Ranger Smith twice. We also get some silhouette drawings, multiple Yogi heads in one panel and the idea that Cindy Bear’s dad wants to get her out of the house.

The colour comics come from Richard Holliss’ collection.

January 4, 1970.

January 11, 1970.

January 18, 1970.

January 25, 1970.

Click on any of the comics to blow them up.

Note: We’re unable to do the comics from 50 years ago this month as I don’t have access to decent copies of them.


  1. These materials were drawn by Gene Hazelton and Ed Benedict.
    Inked by Ed Nofziger.

  2. Jay North, who played Dennis on the sitcom "Dennis the Menace", played the teenage but oddly not (as) super-strong (he couldn't break out of a "cement overcoat" he wore(?) pretending to be a statue!!) teenage Bamm-Bamm Rubble on "The Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm Show" and its spin-offs.
