Galaxy Goof-Ups was a 30-minute Saturday morning animated series, spin-off of Yogi's Space Race produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions and broadcast on NBC from September 9, 1978 to September 1, 1979.


The "Galaxy Goof-Ups" consisted of Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, Scare Bear and Quack-Up as space patrolmen (under the leadership of Captain Snerdley) who always goofed-up (hence the name of the show) while on duty and spent most of their time in disco clubs. The show originally aired as a segment on Yogi's Space Race from September 9, 1978 to October 28, 1978. Following the cancellation of Yogi's Space Race, Galaxy Goof-Ups was given its own half-hour timeslot on NBC beginning November 4, 1978. The show has been rebroadcast on USA Cartoon Express, Nickelodeon, TNT, Cartoon Network and Boomerang.


The "Galaxy Goof-Ups" characters (Yogi Bear, Scare Bear, Huckleberry Hound and Quack-Up) are all from Space Race, except for the following two new characters who are exclusive to this series:

Captain Snerdley: The Commander of the Galaxy Goof-Ups, Captain Snerdley is forced to put up with their clumsiness since they somehow solve the cases they're assigned to. In The Dopey Defenders, to make sure the new equipment will work better, he had installed a mechanism which keeps them from touching it.

General Bullhorn: Bullhorn is Snerdley's superior. He's unaware of the Goof-Ups' incompetence and blames Snerdley for whatever goes wrong. In one episode he is seen removing medals (along with pieces of uniform) from Snerdley every time they commit a blunder.
