In 2007, Cartoon Network released a short based off of The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy titled Matinee Mandy. It is unknown at what specific date the short was released or if it even aired on television in America at all.

Two versions of the short are known to exist online, both uploaded to YouTube, but neither in English. The first upload is in 4:3 and features both Chinese subtitles and Chinese voices. The second upload is in widescreen; it appears to be a recording from a Thai version of Boomerang and features Thai dubbing. It is unknown if the English version was even released or if any copies of it exist.

In May of 2017, YouTube user shooterboss uploaded the Chinese dub with fan-made English subtitles.

If anyone speaks either Chinese or Thai, could you please translate the dialogue for me?

Not sure what the rule is for making a new thread about something that is no longer lost at the time of the thread's creation. There was another short besides this one that was sort-of-lost, but I found a way to download it. It was only available with Chinese subtitles and dubbing or on Vbox, however the Vbox link gave me an error I couldn't read; I think it was region locked. Thankfully, I could still download it through another site.

So anyway, this short was also released in 2007 and is titled "Senior Power!". Enjoy: http://www.d...ideo/x55yu86

I can even recount most of it. The basic plot was Erwin thought Mandy was on a date with the person in front of them and tries to annoy them to no avail. Erwin then begs for grim to give him chest hair to show off to Mandy. While Erwin boasts about his new chest hair Mandy attempts to tell him he is Turing into a werewolf. But because Erwin was to busy he ignored what mandy said.

That's basically all I can remember.

An English version has to exist...the only instance of an American Cartoon Network series having any short of media not originally made in English was to original Johnny Bravo Goes to Bollywood short, not to be confused with the TV movie of the same name, produced in Hindi.

Yes, the Johnny Bravo goes to Bollywood short is probably lost. Its very, VERY rare to find, specially because the TV movie has the exact same title.

I found out that it wasn't a "short", it was a full episode in hindi, Partible was the only american involved and it was available with eng subs in the Season 2 DVD's extra features. It was never Lost: /watch?v=PgAkeki672c

It's been found, although it's now a lot harder to reach because it was blocked in 133 countries. https://www....=PgAkeki672c Have a download link:

I may have a digital copy on my computer from 2008. But there are two issues: 1) my computer hasn't been used in YEARS (2013 to be exact), it's somewhere in my storage boxes as I've only just moved in and 2) it may have been overwritten by another video. I used to do that with some videos that I felt were taking up room and needed replacing. Fingers crossed I can actually get to my computer soon and find it.

bad news, my LMW friends: my 2008 computer is completely corrupted. Chances of me finding the episode are now very very slim.

On Australian Cartoon Network, this short aired quite a lot (more than the original series, for some reason). It's a little weird to think that it's lost now, after seeing it so many times.

It does exist in English, by the way. I even loaned my friend a USB that had the short in English, alongside the other Tgaobam shorts. Should I see if he still has the USB?

I have an idea. All over YouTube people post videos of VHS recordings of Cartoon Network commercial breaks from anywhere from 1990-2011. This video is from 2007. If we all look for 2007 VHS Cartoon Network recordings, one of us will find it!

I have about 3+ hours of Scooby Doo (the original series) recorded in 2007. I'm going to check that tape and see if it has anything.

Hi, my name is David I'm from Peru and I tell you how I found this short, today at 3:00 am I get up to see cartoon pop, since today is St. Peter's and St. Paul's Day, everything is fine. I saw series like Courage, Billy and Mandy, Johnny Bravo, Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi, Ed, Edd n Eddy, among others. At 4:30 am I was watching Cow and Chicken, when the show finished the short started and i start to record it (Sorry for the volume, I had not noticed). I finished and gave bumpers, then gave I Am Weasel and finished Cartoon Pop. The English version of this short is lost and dry Cartoon Network is hiding secrets for us to find. Only the version in Chinese and Thai were found and this May 2017 was subtitled by a user called shooterboss, unfortunately I can not remember the title in Spanish, but at least record more than half. I hope you like it (turn up the volume so it will be heard). Here's the link: https://www....=rxhVxzfyKlQ
