Grudge Match: Batman and Robin vs. Yogi and Boo Boo

This is one of my favorite ideas for a WWWF Grudge Match that never happened: Ranger Smith needs help to enforce the law in Jellystone Park, so he gets his old friend Commissioner Gordon to send Batman and Robin to the park to stop Yogi Bear and Boo Boo from stealing pic-a-nic baskets. So we have two teams consisting of a tall obsessive guy and his short, less obsessive sidekick. One team is devoted to crime (stealing pic-a-nic baskets from innocent people). The other team is devoted to fighting crime. Both Batman and Yogi are considered smarter than the average bear and/or superhero. Will the Dynamic Duo make Jellystone safe for picnics again, or will the bears treat Batman as just another useless authority figure like the Ranger?

Yogi accidentally starts the Batmobile and runs the Dynamic Duo down against a mountainside.

"The ranger isn't gonna like this, Yogi..."

Hmm. I wonder which version of Batman we're talking about here. If it's Adam West, he'd probably take Yogi out with his Bat-Anti-Thieving-Bear-Spray. If it's Frank Miller's Batman, he'd probably tear Yogi in half and eat him raw.

Mixing franchises as it does, it's perfect for the website state of the current Kids WB. But I'd love to see the Adam West/Burt Ward duo face off against the Frank Miller versions, in Imax.
