Ranger Smith is the head park ranger of Jellystone Park. Most of his problems come from having to prevent Yogi Bear routinely stealing visitors' picnic baskets.

Physical appearance

Ranger Smith is a middle-aged Caucasian male, with black hair, and a bulbous nose.


Smith is hardworking, works by the book, and is straight laced, and wants nothing more than for Yogi to do what bears should be doing by not harassing the park visitors by stealing their food. He doesn't completely hate Yogi, it's just that he's always an overbearing exhaustion for Smith to handle. Sometimes he will threaten to send Yogi to other places around the country, or even other parts of the world, like Siberia. He gets along fine with Boo Boo and Cindy, because they abide by the rules, or at least better than Yogi manages to.

He seemed to join Yogi's Treasure Hunters, to simply keep track of Yogi, because if he wasn't keeping to his job, he would send Yogi back to Jellystone.


Early life

He had an evil twin brother, Slippery Smith.[1]


Other versions

Yo, Yogi!

Officer Smith.

Voice actors

  • He was initially voiced by Daws Butler as a prototype to Ranger Smith (as most rangers were before the character was officially introduced). Once Ranger Smith became a regular, he was voiced by Don Messick and continued to do in virtually all appearances until Messick's death in 1997. One exception for Yo, Yogi!, where Ranger Smith was the younger Officer Smith, being portrayed by Greg Burson. In Spümcø's non-canon shorts of the late 1990's, he was voiced by Corey Burton, being the first unofficial successor to Messick.
