Yogi's Gang was an animated series airing Saturday mornings on ABC. It was spun-off from the Saturday Superstar Movie Yogi's Ark Lark, which aired the season prior.

In this extension of that feature, Yogi and his Hanna-Barbera pals travel on their ark where they deal with and battle humanity's baser traits like pollution, prejudice, envy, lying and the like. Each trait is characterized by a figure like Lotta Litter, the Envy Brothers and Mr. Bigot.

After the 1964 movie Hey, There...It's Yogi Bear! came out, Yogi and the pre-1965 Hanna-Barbera characters were under the control of Screen Gems, the TV distribution arm of Columbia Pictures. Hanna-Barbera, after many efforts, won back control of the characters in 1971, some of whom made their Saturday morning debuts in Yogi's Ark Lark.
