The New Yogi Bear Show (also known as Hanna-Barbera's Yogi Bear Show) is a 30-minute weekday animated series which aired in syndication in 1988 as part of The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera and is also the fifth incarnation of Hanna-Barbera's Yogi Bear series. It contained 45 new episodes combined with reruns of the original 1960s Yogi series. Pared down from some of the other incarnations of the adventures of Yogi and friends, this series featured only Yogi, Boo-Boo, Cindy and Ranger Smith, with episodes set in Jellystone Park.

The show also introduced four new characters, Ranger Roubideux (Ranger Smith's assistant, who is chubby and tiny-sized), Ninja Raccoon (a Japanese raccoon cub, who wears a kimono), Ninja Raccoon's mom, and Blubber Bear from Wacky Races (a large grizzly bear, who is taller than Yogi). The show marked the first time Yogi Bear wasn't voiced by Daws Butler (who had died on May 18, 1988) as the lead role went to Greg Burson.
