Yellowstone = Jellystone

Erica Palan /

On this day in 1872, Yellowstone National Park was established as the world's first national park. Sure, Yellowstone has given people countless vacation memories and stood as a testament to America's national park system. But, perhaps more importantly, it served as the inspiration for Jellystone National Park, home of Yogi Bear. Here, some of Yogi's parkside antics.
