Mike Bodgas, Featured Performer for August, perform Forgetful Yogi inherited from his Grandfather. This prop was produced by Warren Hamilton, ca. 1960. The head of a wooden Yogi Bear cutout is removed, and a balloon is put in its place. The wooden head vanishes, later reappearing on the body and popping the balloon in the process with a selected card. This version of the classic Forgetful Freddy effect (devised by Milbourne Christopher) is rare and was only produced briefly by Hamilton. It was pulled from the market because Hamilton did not secure licensing from Hanna-Barbera for the use of Yogi Bear.
