Western Animation: Yo Yogi!
"He's Now, he's hip, he's smarter then the average bear- YOGI BEAR! Now 14 years old, Yogi no longer lives in Jellystone Park. It's the '90s and Yogi and his friends, BOO BOO, HUCKLEBERRY HOUND, SNAGGLEPUSS and CINDY BEAR, hang out at the modern day town square — The fantastic, indoor-outdoor "echo-techino" JELLYSTONE MALL."
Yo Yogi! press release.

Hanna-Barbera's answer to Saved by the Bell and Muppet Babies, a Saturday Morning Cartoon that ran on NBC from 1991-92. It features Yogi Bear, Boo Boo Bear, Snagglepuss, Huckleberry Hound, and Cindy Bear as teenagers solving mysteries in "Jellystone Mall" under the watchful eye of Officer Smith (a younger Ranger Smith), while "Dickie" (a teenage Dick Dastardly) would try to foil them.

It was such a commercial failure, it killed off any chance of Yogi getting another series (aside from the 2010 movie starring Dan Aykroyd and Justin Timberlakeyes, that's who really voiced them). In fact, many cited its failure as the reason NBC stopped airing Saturday morning cartoons (that, and the fact that the Peter Engel teen shows, like Saved By the Bell and California Dreams were doing better than most animated shows at the time).
