Yet another digustingly bad drawing styles for an animated show. Why
are this lazy-ass generation so intent on destroying old favourites?
Jealousy over their predecessors having actual creative talent? :-(

"I grew up watching tons of Hanna-Barbera cartoons and have a deep love
for these characters," ... so why make them look like complete crap and
'reimagine' them in ridiculous new jobs?!

From ComingSoon.net ...

Jellystone!: Hanna-Barbera Characters Return
in HBO Max Original Animated Series
Yogi, Boo Boo, and Cindy, alongside an epic ensemble cast of
Hanna-Barbera characters, are returning to television screens
in the all-new animated comedy, Jellystone! The Max Original
series helmed by acclaimed showrunner and executive producer
C.H. Greenblatt (Chowder, Harvey Beaks) and produced by
Warner Bros. Animation, presents a reimagined take on these
beloved characters, modernizing them for today's family
audience and introducing them to a new generation of fans.
Season 1 premieres Thursday, July 29 on HBO Max.

Set in the charming town of the same name, Jellystone!
follows an ensemble of Hanna-Barbera characters as they live,
work, play, and (as is often the case), destroy the town in
some silly way together. Huckleberry Hound proudly serves as
the town's mayor; Cindy, Boo Boo, and Yogi are the town's
medical staff; Jabberjaw works at Magilla's clothing store
where they supply all the bow ties and hats to the town's
citizens, and every character has a specific role in the
community. Their paths cross in fun and ridiculous ways,
turning everyday activities into hilarious pandemonium.

"I grew up watching tons of Hanna-Barbera cartoons and have
a deep love for these characters," said Greenblatt. "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."

Greenblatt serves as showrunner and executive producer, and
voices several characters including Doggie Daddy, Boo Boo,
Peter Potamus, and Benny. Joining him in this talented voice
