[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/YogisSpaceRace_4337.jpg]]''Yogi's Space Race'' was a SaturdayMorningCartoon produced in 1978 by Creator/HannaBarbera for Creator/{{NBC}}. It was essentially an update of the same studio's ''WesternAnimation/WackyRaces'', with WesternAnimation/YogiBear, Huckleberry Hound and WesternAnimation/{{Jabberjaw}} among the competitors.

The show had three supporting segments: ''Galaxy Goof-Ups'', ''The Buford Files'' and ''The Galloping Ghost''. The latter two were later [[WesternAnimation/TheBufordFilesAndTheGallopingGhost combined into one half-hour show]].

!!This cartoon provides examples of:

* AlliterativeName: Phantom Phink, Nugget Nose.
* TheBadGuyWins: Phantom Phink won most of the races, either as himself or as Captain Good.
* BatmanCanBreatheInSpace: So can women, bears, dogs, ducks and even sharks.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: One episode featured a joke about "No gambling on Saturday morning."
* TheCameo: WesternAnimation/{{Quick-Draw McGraw}} and WesternAnimation/JanaOfTheJungle have made appearances.
* CassandraTruth: In one episode, the space race's official computer revealed that Captain Good and Phantom Phink are one and the same, but nobody believed. [[spoiler:At least Good/Phink had to rescue the others to protect the masquerade.]]
* ClarkKenting: Granted, "Captain Good" and "Phantom Phink" couldn't look more different unless they had different genders but, the two of them officially enter the same races and nobody finds it odd they're never seen together even when the races were about to begin. Well, they ''do'' find it odd but not enough to suspect they're one and the same.
* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer: In one full-color print ad, Scarebear was shown with Mumbly's color scheme: light blue fur and yellow clothing.
* DisneyAcidSequence: The infamous disco freak-out numbers in ''Galaxy Goof-Ups''.
* EpicRace: [[RecycledInSpace . . . In Space!]]
* IdenticalGrandson: Aside from the case mentioned below, Captain Good was once said to have had an ancestor named Sir Good during the Middle Ages. Sir Good even had a cat who looked like Captain Good's cat.
* IdentityImpersonator: Somehow, Captain Good[=/=]Phantom Phink never needed one to preserve the masquerade.
* InTheBlood: Phantom Phink was described in a Space Race Biography as a descendant of Dr. Jekyll. The narrator said it explains about Phink being a bad guy. (And that's because he doesn't know [or knows but refuses to believe] that [[JekyllAndHyde Captain Good and Phantom Phink]] are one and the same.)
* JekyllAndHyde: Captain Good and Phantom Phink. A Space Race biography even described Phantom Phink as Jekyll's descendant. [[IdenticalGrandson With "Dr. Jekyll" looking like "Captain Good" and "Mr. Hyde" looking like "Phantom Phink"]].
* PeacockGirl: The lead singer/dancer in the aforementioned disco sequences.
* [[DickDastardlyStopsToCheat Phantom Phink Stops to Cheat]]
* RecycledInSpace: Literally so.
* ShoutOut: In one race, Sludge stole Rita's glasses by stretching his front leg the way [[WesternAnimation/DynomuttDogWonder Dynomutt]] does.
** When you look at the show's logo, [[Franchise/StarWars what does the "font" used for the "Space Race" part look like?]]
* UndesirablePrize: ''All of them''. Every single prize offered to whoever wins the episode's race has some highly unpleasant catch to it. For example, one episode's prize is a trip on a luxury transport plane called the Zoncorde. At the end of the episode, Huckleberry Hound is shown clinging to the wing of the Zoncorde, saying to Quack-Up, "Maybe next time we can ride ''in'' the Zoncorde."
* UnreliableNarrator: One episode's Space Race Biography portrayed an ancestor of "Captain Good" and another showed an ancestor of "Phantom Phink".
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: Captain Good.
* WackyRacing: InSpace
* WolverinePublicity: The cartoon isn't so focused on WesternAnimation/YogiBear as the title suggested.
