'Yogi Bear' Movie Introduces Boring Cartoon Character To New Generation

BURBANK, CA—Executives at Warner Bros. Entertainment, Inc. announced today that the upcoming 3-D live-action/CGI film Yogi Bear will introduce a whole new generation to a dull, culturally irrelevant cartoon character.

"So kids of all ages: Get ready to be bored to tears by the antics of a bear and his little bear sidekick who sometimes get hungry!" Daley added that the film will also introduce a new generation to a stupid, unfunny way to say "picnic basket."
