YooHoo & Friends was a 2012 English dub of the Korean animated TV series of the same name, created by David Feiss (Cow and Chicken, I Am Weasel). The series is produced by Toonzone Studios, and written by Thomas Krajewski.
YooHoo & Friends is about five executives who destroyed the Earth for money. Mother Nature notices this and tells her husband Father Time, voiced by Flavor Flav, to fix the mess. He turns these five into cute, fluffy animals, and their quest is to save the planet from eco-disasters and find gems that Father Time leaves them so that they can make their wish to become human again. The plot, episodes, and animation were changed from the original Korean counterpart to appear more to western audiences.

YooHoo & Friends debuted on Cartoon Network in Venezuelan Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese on January 8, 2012, on the block Movimiento/Movimento Cartoon, as well as Boomerang. In its original English version, it aired on ABC3 (now ABC Me) in Australia on February 15, 2012, and on Pop in the United Kingdom in the same year.
Information about the dub is removed from Toonzone's website, but it is available here. The YouTube clips linked on the page, that are also seen commonly on forums talking about the show, are now removed. They can still be found online via YooHooWorldwide's videos. In addition, the series had a website as well, which is now gone.
All YooHoo & Friends episodes were available on the ABC3 website, but they expired. Episodes were also available on POP's website for a while. Some clips are still online, but most, excluding officially released clips, are in low quality. Episodes were also uploaded to Kametsu by Shaggy, but the links were down. Animation Smears, The Fudge Yeah Cartoon Fatness Wiki, and Maxtaro's Rubbish Blog have some screenshots of the show too.
On November 3, 2016, the entire English dub was uploaded onto YouTube by Shaggy 4457. Shaggy's account was terminated shortly afterwards, but Mario Loyd also had copies on his channel, before he was terminated too. An anonymous user has contacted Shaggy, and he said that when he has a working device, he'd upload the original files for him.
On November 26, Jason Wiggins also uploaded the whole series onto his YouTube account. The source files by Shaggy, however, or a version without the channel watermark, have still remained lost, with Wiggins' uploads being a close equivalent. His channel has since been deleted though, rendering most of the found episodes lost.
