Help!… It’s the Hair Bear Bunch! (CBS 1971, Joe E. Ross, Daws Butler)

Very happening and very 1970’s children’s cartoon comedy Help! It’s The Hair Bear Bunch was about a group of bears (led by Hair Bear) who lived at Wonderland Zoo in Cave Number 9 but never wasted a chance to try and escape.

Very similar in style and content to Yogi Bear the series was equally as good, many of the people providing voices having also worked on Yogi. The other regulars were Hair’s right hand bear Bubi, the cap wearing Square Bear and zoo keeper Mr Peevely, who along with his assistant Botch (‘Ooo Ooo’) did his best to keep the bears under lock and key.
