  • Boo-Boo has a dark side? Who Knew?! :?

    I'm not sure why it took Cartoon Network 7 years to air 39 episodes of a hit T.V. series that only has 3 seasons to it's name, but at last they've done it and as such, I'm going to go ahead & write reviews for all of the episodes that I like for this show and the ones that I have seen so far! This is the first one I really remember seeing! Everyone sees Boo-Boo Bear as being a cute, sweet, innocent loving kid-type bear who would Never do any harm to anything! But is the bear really as cute as he seems, or is he harvesting a dark secret? You won't believe the answer to this one! But that's what I like about this series: it always presented us with the unexpected! That's why I wrote this review! :idea: Enough said, true believers! ;)moreless
  • Yogi bears little budy booboo gets aressted for tageting the heads of corprate america.

    Death by chocolate (aka the unabooboo) is a pretty funny episode. It gets kinda wierd when at the end... Not of the the best episodes but definitly worth a watch. I wouldnt say to try to see this one first if you havnt seen Birdman before but if you liked Yogi bear as a kid dont expect to see to much of Yogi and dont watch because fans of the show when they were young might be offened. I wasnt but i never liked it. And peanut who birdman just hired in the previous episode is still running around upto whatever he does.moreless

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Harvey: Peanut, give me a psych profile on Boo Boo Bear. Debbie, we're gonna need some law books, with pictures this time. Avenger, start taking depositions. All right, lets go, people!
      [Avenger and Peanut stare at him blankly]
      Harvey: Everyone turn around. [turns around and begins breathing into a paper bag] I'm going to my calm place. I'm going to my calm place. I'm going to my calm place.

    • Harvey: Mr. Boo Boo, would you consider yourself a revolutionary?
      Boo Boo: Well, no. But I do believe corporations rob us of our dignity and independence, and that these systems must be ripped down, burnt down, or leveled by any force necessary.
      [jury gasps, long pause]
      Boo Boo: But that's just one little bear's opinion.
      Harvey: A cute, fuzzy little bear...

    • Reducto: Please tell the court what you're holding.
      Dr. Quincy: It's the Cookie Bouqueter's Manifesto.
      Reducto: Did you find anything, unusual about it? Aside from the fact that it's filled with... paranoid delusions?

    • Phil: I'll be keeping my eyes on you.
      Harvey: Eye.
      Phil: I didn't know you were Scottish.

    • Judge Mightor: This is MY house! And to start, there will be no circus in my courtroom. (Vomits out a clown car)

    • Peanut: (To Harvey) You're going down.
      Harvey: I'm sorry, what?
      Peanut: Hay Pappi, down! (Points down) Caliente! Donde esta Harvey? Harvey esta down!
      Harvey: Did you do that filing I asked you to do.
      Peanut: (To Avenger) You too! Caw, caw, caw! Loosely translated: Polly want a beatin? (Avenger glares at Peanut)

  • NOTES (2)


    • Falcon-7: Falcon-7 is Birdman's government contact in the original Birdman cartoon. He is a special agent with the government. Falcon-7 is able to contact Birdman when there is an emergency or assignment for him. Harvey's boss is named Phil Ken Sebben, a homophone of sorts for Falcon-7 (his previous identity).

    • The Constrictor: There is a a quick cameo in the courtroom by The Constrictor, a villain from the Birdman cartoon.

    • The Yogi Bear Show: Yogi & Boo Boo are two bears who live in Jellystone Park. Yogi is always getting into trouble. He steals picnic baskets, tries to escape from the park, and other things. Ranger Smith always tries to stop him, and sometimes succeeds. Boo Boo, the level headed one, tries to steer Yogi in the right direction, but Yogi never listens. So, Boo Boo unwittingly helps him. The show aired from 1958-1959.
      Yogi Bear was originally part of "The Huckleberry Hound Show". In 1961, Yogi got his own show. In 1988, the show was called "The New Yogi Bear Show". And this show is one of the Hanna-Barbera's greatest hits.

    • Smuckers: "With a name like Smuckers, you won't even notice the taste." A reference to the Smuckers jam slogan, "With a name like Smuckers, it has to be good."

    • Unabomber: Boo Boo's alias, "The Unabooboo", as well as his document, "The Unaboo Boo Manifesto", are parodies of the infamous "Unabomber", Theodore Kaczynski.

    • Elian Gonzalez: The picture of Ranger Smith, carrying a rifle, and trying to take Boo Boo into custody as Yogi hides him in a closet, is a parody of the famous Elian Gonzalez photograph.

    • Dick Dastardly: Dick Dastardly, making a cameo appearance in the courtroom, is best known from 1969's Wacky Races, as well as numerous other cartoons, including his own self-titled spinoff as the main villain in Hanna-Babara.

    • Quincey, M.E.: When they cut to the shot of Dr. Quincy on the witness stand he is examining a woman in a swimsuit sprawled on the bench before him. A nod to the opening credits of the TV show Quincey, M.E. which had a scene in the opening credits which had Jack Klugman doing a similar examination on a woman on his boat.

    • Jagged Edge: The whole ending with Harvey in a gown in the shower finding out a secret about his lover is a not-so-thinly disguised parody of the 1985 movie Jagged Edge.
