Cindy Bear is a cartoon character created by Hanna-Barbera Productions. She is one of the primary supporting characters of the Yogi Bear franchise as well as a regular in the stable of frequently appearing Hanna-Barbera animated personalities. Cindy Bear is the love-interest of Yogi Bear, and a resident of Jellystone Park. She speaks with a pronounced Southern accent, and carries a parasol. Cindy rarely engages in the same antics as Yogi and Boo Boo and does not share the same antagonistic relationship with Ranger Smith. Her romance with Yogi is typically portrayed as on-again/off-again, with her pursuing him, while he avoids and evades her advances. Just as often, however, Yogi is shown to return her affections.
