His personality is kind of a cross between Droopy's and Baba Looey's.

Pedro Vargas said...

Love the way you do Boo Boo! Both as an artist and voice actor. I'd love to see you do another Yogi, Boo Boo and Ranger Smith cartoon too! They're such fun characters!

Charley Deppner said...

A sardonic enabler of Yogi's mania.

Kelly Toon said...

passive, sweet, shy, practical, respects authority, simple, loyal, reasonable, affectionate. I haven't seen a ton of Yogi cartoons (a shame, I know!) but these words are what immediately come to mind.

Boo Boo, is the good side of Yogi's conscience.

A.M.Bush said...

he is cautious and law abiding.

Sven Hoek said...

Mild mannered, friendly, outgoing, rule follower. Like a good conscience always trying to do whats right. Always reminding Yogi of the Right thing to do, and pointing out anything that was against the rules.

As opposed to his original personality which was the follower who didnt mind doing bad things if his buddy yogi was doing it. More interested in going along instead of following rules. Would break the rules if no one was looking.

Likable nebbish.

Calvin said...

Calm, mellow, cute, humble, except in boo boo runs wild. I love that side of him!

RooniMan said...

Hes a quiet, level-headed kind of guy, always telling Yogi to think first. Kind of like a bear version of Jiminey Cricket.

"I'm Boo Boo."

Yogi is the ID, Boo Boo is the ego, a play it safe kinda bear. He spends pretty much all of his time with Yogi, perhaps he's insecure about himself, and feels as if 'this is the best I'm going to do'. I feel like if Yogi got shot by a hunter or something, Boo boo wouldn't be able to get his life back together. Vice versa, Yogi would just find someone else to exploit.

Khato said...

Comic foil.

Heck, he even resembles the description of Sancho and Watson. Short and stumpy and Yogi's tall and (relatively) lean. Down to earth, if you were.

Cool rapper with Timberlakian gift of rhyme. Knowhati'msayin', yo? Word.

Christine Gerardi said...

I'd say a slightly less depressed and weird Droopy.

Matt Adams said...

this is completely irrelevant, but my childhood nickname my dad gave me was Booboo.

Sublimely loyal.

runt of the litter

tropt said...

clever, shy and responsible with a black and white sense of right and wrong

Jeff Read said...

Faithful (to Yogi). Innocent, uncorrupted. Obsequious (to Ranger Smith). He's like, when you were kids and you had a little sister. You wanted to get into trouble, and she knew you were getting into trouble, and wanted no part of it. But she went along with you anyway. First to squeal to Mom, though, the little snitch.

Juz Capes said...

He doesn't have one, just like Dr. Watson.

gracesix said...

An opportunist who nags to alleviate guilt and he's a cutie.

Boo Boo gets his kicks by living vicariously through Yogi, while being able to sit back at a comfortable distance and dole out practical, sage advice. I always got the sense that Boo Boo was the real Machiavellian mastermind behind the park hijinks, and easily manipulated Yogi through some very basic reverse psychology. I think Yogi is basically Boo Boo's big dumb bloodhound.

A great Yogi Bear cartoon would show Yogi and Boo Boo both sitting at home, with Boo Boo behind reading glasses with Sun Tzu's 'The Art of War' and Yogi playing paddleball with a string. Boo Boo would start talking about all the great smells in the park, with people bringing their baked goods now that summer has arrived, and Yogi would be flipping out like a heroin addict over it. Yogi would suggest going out immediately to steal one, and Boo Boo would start up with his classic drawl, "Idaaa knowww, Yooogiiii. If Mr. Ranger catches us, there'll be hell to pay. I'm going to play it safe, you go on alone, I'm not going to risk it."

And Yogi would go through a series of death-defying actions, barely getting out alive. At intervals between these adventures, he'd come back to the cave to see Boo Boo playing chess, playing with a model of the Battle of Waterloo, playing a pan-pipe for a group of lemmings that he leads over a cliff, etc. Petting one them with big eyes, he'd ask, "Do you like this li'l lemming, Yogi? I named him after youuu..."

Finally, when Yogi eventually makes it back to the cave with a basket, Boo Boo would sweet talk Mr. Ranger into letting Boo Boo keep it as he hauls Yogi off to the county jail.

he makes me think of winston churchill for some reason, but i dont know why, he doesnt even smoke a cigar.

Will Finn said...

I see Boo-Boo as suffering from "Stockholm Syndrome", wherein prisoners abandon their own self interest and sympathize with their captors/oppressors.

He has adopted Ranger Smith's motives as his own and as such commits treason against his kind without realizing it. Boo-Boo mistakes Yogi's defiance to reject their situation as possible anarchy and subverts the necessary overthrow of the oppressor class against his own interest, ironically and mistakenly trying to "save" Yogi.
