'Yogi Bear' CGI stills: Are you afraid of bears with human qualities?

bearsImage Credit: cgi yogi bear and the charmin bearHold onto your picnic baskets: The first stills from Warner Bros.’s CGI adaptation of the cartoon classic Yogi Bear have hit the Web. And I don’t know what you think, PopWatchers, but Film School Rejects kind of hits the nail on the head with this headline: Fun or Frightening?

Because, like Stephen Colbert, I don’t care for bears. Especially bears with human qualities. One day, they’re wearing a tie; the next, they’re growing opposable thumbs and programming technically advanced robots that slash your face and steal your pic-a-nic baskets. I mean, just look at that Charmin bear. Oh, she’s so cute, enjoying that toilet paper, right? Nope. All she’s thinking is how much she’d like to rope that toilet paper around your neck so she can get rid of you, move into your house, and steal your boyfriend. And then, before you know it, she’ll kick him out and everything will be like Saturday Night Live‘s “Bear City.” Am I being paranoid today, PopWatchers? And what do you think of Yogi Bear‘s CGI bear?

    Kinda looks like a guy in a bear suit…

    When will studios learn that NOT EVERYTHING looks good in CGI or 3D? This is a trend that I want to see die.

    • Brian

      I’m old! Con-sarnit!

  • kyle

    I think it looks pretty awesome!

  • Chris

    I didn’t even know they were making a Yogi Bear movie. Good lord.

  • tgb

    Looks like a mascot from a low-rent amusement park.

  • LOL

    More crap from Hollywood. No, thanks.

  • tgb

    Or a Furry.

    His cold lifeless eyes frighten me.

    It looks like that weird uncle who likes to hang out at parks so he can “play” with children.. so no, I’m not watching this

  • Raze

    Here’s hoping California legalizes the ganga before this comes out to complete the experience. Cutting edge Wee-D technology. Cameron can eat his heart out…with Cheetos.

      I must be tripping balls

    The image scares me — not in a “Bears are godless killing machines” way, but in a “Kids, into the car, we’re getting away from that creepy guy in the cheap homemade Yogi Bear suit, NOW!” kind of way.

    I don’t hate it. It’s not scary, so I definitely don’t get that description. I’m going to have to see a preview before I can make a real opinion on it. A picture is not enough, despite that most of you will probably reply “A picture’s worth a thousand words”.

    This looks worse than Scooby Doo did!

  • kelsey

    Aaaah! Get it off my screen!
