'Jellystone!' to debut on HBO Max July 29

June 25 (UPI) -- HBO Max said Jellystone! -- its new animated series centering on the classic cartoon characters Yogi, Boo Boo and Cindy -- is slated to debut on July 29.

The showrunner and executive producer is C.H. Greenblatt whose credits include Chowder and Harvey Beaks.


"I grew up watching tons of Hanna-Barbera cartoons and have a deep love for these characters," Greenblatt said in a statement Thursday.

"The massive amount of both classic and not-so-classic characters we were able to use from the Hanna-Barbera library is what really makes the Jellystone! universe special. Rather than recreate the feeling of cartoons of the past, we wanted to have silly, weird fun with these characters and expand their personalities to give them more depth. Chances are if there's a character you love, you'll see them somewhere in this world eventually. We hope longtime fans appreciate our take on this world, and we're excited that parents get to introduce and enjoy their favorite Hanna-Barbera characters with their kids."

Other characters that will be featured in the series are Huckleberry Hound, Captain Caveman, Magilla Gorilla, Top Cat and Snagglepuss.
