Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Featured on A&E’s ‘Shipping Wars’
CINCINNATI, Feb. 03, 2022 // GLOBE NEWSWIRE // - Yogi Bear came out of hibernation early this year for an appearance on A&E’s ‘Shipping Wars.’ The show follows a diverse group of transporters who lay it all on the line to haul anything and everything.
The episode took viewers on the road as transporter Doug Smith delivered a 10-foot Yogi Bear statue to a Jellystone Park Camp-Resort in Asheboro, North Carolina, and a massive Yogi Bear-themed concession stand to a Jellystone Park location in Tabor City, North Carolina.
The journey began in Cincinnati, Ohio, where the statue and concession stand were built. The two items were carefully loaded - in pieces - during a downpour.
Time was tight! The statue needed to be in Asheboro the next morning with the refreshment stand due later that afternoon in Tabor City. Once there, the concession stand would need to be reassembled in time for a big reveal party the next day.
As is often the case with difficult shipments, there were unexpected problems and delays. However, Doug safely delivered both items to their destinations. Unloading the refreshment stand proved exceptionally challenging, requiring two forklifts with operators delicately offloading it and gently placing it in its new home.
The assembly team worked into the night to get the stand ready for the party, finishing it just in time. Families visiting the park were the first to be served pizza and s’mores from the new branded stand with Yogi Bear, Boo Boo, and Cindy Bear joining the fun.
“Jellystone Park Camp-Resorts are truly unique places, which is why kids and parents love them so much,” said Trent Hershenson, vice president of Marketing. “The ‘Shipping Wars’ episode gives our fans and viewers a behind-the-scenes glimpse of how the fun is made.”
