National Picnic Day

Celebrating National Picnic Day, and what better way than a quick peek into Jellystone Park, the home of Hanna Barbera's Yogi Bear and Boo-Boo, who usually spend their days looking for a picnic basket, much to the consternation of park Ranger Smith.

Along with all his animated success, Yogi Bear had a comic book that lasted for 42 issues at Gold Key (even if the first three issues were under their Four Color title), with the series ending in October, 1970.

Covers above are from Yogi Bear #32 and #35 (April, 1968 and January, 1969), and the second batch of covers from Yogi Bear #34 and #42 (October, 1968 and October, 1970), with surprisingly few covers with picnic baskets.
