Hey there, Boo Boo -Yogi Bear in 3D!

I've barely newly satisfied my urge to make a rare appearance to the cinema to watch 'The King's Speech' and now, like a street full of buses, another film has grabbed my attention.

This time, a world away from Colin Firth's Golden Globe winning performance, it's Yogi Bear in 3D that has captured my imagination!

Hey there, Boo Boo!
Like many of the Hanna-Barbera cartoons, there was something wonderfully avocative of childhood with Yogi Bear. Although a late 1950's / early 1960s invention, generations of children have embraced this playful character's harmless attempts to steal 'pic-a-nic' baskets from visitors to the wonderfully named Jellystone Park with his companion Boo-Boo.

Now, Yogi's being re-incarnated with the voice of comedic legend, former Ghostbuster Dan Aykroyd whilst Boo Boo will be voiced by musical superstar Justin Timerlake.

Smarter than the Average Bear!
The film was released just before Christmas in America and will be released on 11th February here in the UK.

Should I embarassed to want to go and see a children's movie in the cinema? Hell no! It seems that many of my friends who are older than my tender 28 years are also keen to re-live a part of their youth!

So, here's the trailer and I look forward to a great 'pic-a-nic'...
