Yogi's Treasure Hunt is an animated television series and the fourth incarnation of Hanna-Barbera's Yogi Bear series. It premiered in late 1985 as part of The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera and would be the last series to star Daws Butler as the voice of Yogi. It is a clone of Popeye's Treasure Hunt, a segment from another Hanna-Barbera show The All-New Popeye Hour.

The show's opening theme was performed and sung by Sha-Na-Na's Jon "Bowser" Bauman. Originally, the series title name was The Funtastic Treasure Hunt


Yogi and the gang would go on treasure hunts around the world, as assigned by Top Cat. They traveled aboard their ship, the S.S. Jelly Roger, which strongly resembled (but was slightly different from) the ark from Yogi's Gang. Dick Dastardly and Muttley traveled on their ship, the S.S. Dirty Tricks, and would try to beat Yogi and friends to the treasure by engaging in their usual dirty tricks.
