Novelty Treats: The Assassination of Yogi Bear...

Most of us can probably agree that this weekend's Yogi Bear reboot looks nothing short of painful.  Amazingly, however, some speck of genius parody has risen from the ashes of another destroyed cartoon.  This short, a mash-up between Yogi and 2007's renegade western The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford is powered by animator Edmund Earle and has absolutely nothing to do with the film itself.  One way you can tell is because it (unlike the movie) is obviously awesome.  Sure, the animation has been polished up nicely to look remarkably like the Yogi trailers; but, unfortunately, rumors of the clip being an alternate ending (one that would certainly scar children for life) are completely unfounded.
