Yes, there's a trailer! Premiering July 29 on HBO Max, an ensemble cast of epic Hanna-Barbera characters will again grace our TV screens, after a 30-year hiatus, once more finding silly ways to destroy their town in a new show helmed by ‘Chowder’s C.H. Greenblatt and produced by Warner Bros. Animation.
Yogi, Boo Boo, and Cindy, together with an ensemble cast of epic Hanna-Barbera characters, will once again bring their crazy hijinks to a world sorely in need of such tomfoolery, as HBO Max has announced the all-new animated comedy, Jellystone! The Max Original series, helmed by showrunner and executive producer C.H. Greenblatt (Chowder, Harvey Beaks) and produced by Warner Bros. Animation, presents a reimagined take on the HB characters, after a 30-year hiatus, modernized for a family audience and new generation of viewers. Season 1 premieres Thursday, July 29 on HBO Max.
The series, set in the charming town of the same name, Jellystone! follows the aforementioned HB critters as they live, work, play, and destroy the town in some silly way. Huckleberry Hound proudly serves as the town’s mayor; Cindy, Boo Boo and Yogi are the town’s medical staff; Jabberjaw works at Magilla’s clothing store where they supply all the bow ties and hats to the town’s citizens; and every character has a specific role in the community. Their paths cross in fun and ridiculous ways, turning everyday activities into hilarious pandemonium.

“I grew up watching tons of Hanna-Barbera cartoons and have a deep love for these characters,” said Greenblatt. “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.”
Greenblatt serves as showrunner and executive producer, and voices several characters including Doggie Daddy, Boo Boo, Peter Potamus, and Benny. The voice cast also includes Jeff Bergman as Yogi, Mr. Jinks, Wally Gator, and Lippy the Lion; Jim Conroy as Huckleberry Hound, Captain Caveman, Pa Rugg, and others; Georgie Kidder as Auggie Doggie, Brain, and Floral Rugg; Grace Helbig as Cindy Bear, Yappy, Taffy, and Granny Sweet; Niccole Thurman as Jabberjaw, Squiddly Diddly, and Dee Dee Sykes; Thomas Lennon as Top Cat; Ron Funches as Shag Rugg; Bernardo de Paula as El Kabong and Mildew Wolf; Dana Snyder as Snagglepuss, Touché Turtle, and Lambsy; Katie Grober as Yakky Doodle; Paul F. Tompkins as Magilla Gorilla; Jenny Lorenzo as Bobbie Looey, Hardy Har Har, and Choo Choo; Fajer Al-Kaisi as Shazzan and Hadji; Lesley Nicol as Winsome Witch; Ulka Simone Mohanty as Loopy De Loop; and Andrew Frankel as Fancy Fancy and Jonny Quest.
