Added DiffLines:

* EverybodyLaughsEnding: Happens a lot

Added DiffLines:

* LaughTrack: Quite possibly the only Yogi Bear show to use one, only created by Hanna-Barbera themselves.


** Lotta Litter and Mr. Smog both have completely different coloring of their costumes and hair when they actually appear. Lotta Litter additionally has a different hairstyle.

to:

** Mr. Smog has a different color scheme, appearing solid blue in the credits but shades of green in his episode.
** Lotta Litter and Mr. Smog both have has a completely different coloring of their costumes new costume and hair style when they actually appear. Lotta Litter additionally has a different hairstyle.she finally appears.


Added DiffLines:

* OffModel: Pretty frequent given it's a Hanna-Barbera show. For example, characters will be miscolored or missing colors or lines entirely. This also includes when the recycled LimitedAnimation is facing the wrong way or badly assembled (leaving things like faces and limbs pointing the wrong way.)

Added DiffLines:

* EarlyBirdCameo: Four of the Villains of the Week appear in the opening credits. 3 out of the 4 have some differences in their actual episodes when they finally appear, likely due to the production order of the episodes vs. when the opening was made.
** Lotta Litter and Mr. Smog both have completely different coloring of their costumes and hair when they actually appear. Lotta Litter additionally has a different hairstyle.
** Hilarious P. Prankster looks exactly the same but his name is changed to just "The Prankster".

Added DiffLines:

* CluelessAesop: It's a ''little'' hard to take the Dr. Bigot episode's lesson about not discriminating seriously when they present the source of all bigotry in the episode as an olive-skinned man with a funny accent who turns a perfectly nice white man into a raging bigot using a mind control ray.


In the series, WesternAnimation/YogiBear and his friends travel around the world and meet villains who want to spread their faults and vices.

vices. One of the many big MassiveMultiplayerCrossover shows popular in the 70s and 80s era of Hanna-Barbera, only this one is presumably trying to display a social conscience.



* BaitAndSwitchCredits: A rather minor example but in the page's image you see the logo the titles end with. Several characters shown in that logo never actually appear in the show proper.
** In honesty only so many characters are used with big roles and others are only ever featured as silent background characters. But in this case if one was to assume every character in the logo appears at some point on the ark, you would be mistaken.

* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Ties into MeaningfulName, as presumably nobody would consider someone named Dr. Bigot, Gossipy Gossip, or Peter D. Cheater as a person to rely on. The character's reactions to these obvious names seem to change from episode to episode - sometimes they NEVER question why, say, there's a problem with negative gossip when a witch named Gossipy Gossip is around or whether it's a good idea to go to a school taught by Peter D. Cheater. Other times the villains of the week seem aware of this trope and disguise themselves with a "safe" sounding name. For example, Mr. Sloppy becomes Mr. Neat, presenting himself as a "neatness expert."



* RiddleForTheAges: When Peter D. Cheater cheats Yogi out of the ark, he makes the whole gang leave, including Magilla, who powers up the ark's flying mechanism by [[HamsterWheelPower running on a treadmill]]. Despite not having anyone to replace Magilla, Peter somehow makes the ark fly. Provided of course Peter D Cheater didn't somehow know how to cheat gravity, or did he?

Added DiffLines:

* GhostTown: Quick Draw [=McGraw=] inherits one in the episode "Mr. Vandal" and turns it into a tourist attraction. But their first visitor, J. Wanton Vandal, has plans to wreck the town.


Added DiffLines:

* KarmaHoudini: Zigzagged as a whole. Some villains like Smokestag Smog and J. Wanton Vandal escape without any punishment and even vow to continue their bad ways. Other villains get punished such as Fibber chased [[ExitPursuedByABear off by an angry bull]].

Added DiffLines:

* IWillShowYouX: Or in this case, "We'll show them X":
-->'''Boo Boo''': Uh oh, it's the Prankster, and the Greedy Genie, at 3 o'clock!
-->'''Yogi''': Hey, hey, hey, hey! Let's fix ''their'' clocks!

Added DiffLines:

* TitlePlease: Except for the pilot "Yogi's Ark Lark", the episodes' titles don't appear on-screen.


* TheCorruptible: The members of the crew can often be drawn into the villain's way of thinking because of this trope.



** Happens to Wally Gator twice in the show. In "Mr. Prankster" his desire to showcase an actual talent leads him into being an UnwittingPawn for the villain while "Captain Swipe" has him used as an UnwittingPawn to help steal the ark and being too tired to do anything when he catches on.



* NotSoAboveItAll: Yogi usually serves as the OnlySaneMan but can be just as prone to falling for the villains' ploys as the others.
* OnlySaneMan: Yogi and Boo Boo serve this role, though the former can sometimes get caught up in shenanigans like the others.



* VillainOfTheWeek: Each episode features a different villain or team of villains.

to:

* UnwittingPawn: If the crew members aren't serving as TheCorruptible then they usually wind up helping the villain completely oblivious to their plans.
* VillainOfTheWeek: Each episode features a different villain or team of villains.villains.
* WhereDoesHeGetAllThoseWonderfulToys: In "Captain Swipe" Wally wonders where other crew members got the beach gear that they're using. Yogi implies that the crew do each other favors to get such things, outright telling Wally how he can get a surfboard.


* PoorlyDisguisedPilot: The episode with Captain Swipe introduces us a lot to Fumbo Jumbo, a Zorro like elephant. Later interviews revealed this character was a recycled character that up to this point had never sold as a show. More than likely this episode had him written in to try to convince a network to buy a potential spinoff.
