GoGoRiki was one of the last few English dubs that 4Kids Entertainment did before filing for bankruptcy in 2012.

It was the first English adaptation of the hit Russian animated series Smeshariki. 92 episodes were dubbed into English, out of 208 that were produced in Russia.

When the show was discontinued on the block "CW4K!ds" after its 2nd season in 2009, 4Kids never issued any DVDs of the show despite the cult following the show had during its run.

During 4Kids's downward financial spiral since the dub's cancellation, GoGoRiki's rights reverted back to the Russian production company, the Riki Group, who decided to do a new English dub (now with a new name "Kikoriki", which is being used to this very day) which launched on YouTube on March 31st, 2010.

Recently, the Riki Group, through a new distributor, FUN Union, has decided to dub the new CG-animated series of Kikoriki in English. Two spin-offs, PinCode and Baby Riki, have also been dubbed into English, but only one episode of the new Kikoriki series, "The Rise of Machine" and one of PinCode "Itch for Speed", have been released to the public.

It is currently unknown if the Riki Group or FUN Union will release the 4Kids dub, or if they even have the episodes.

The Plot

(From the official series page)

Nine animal creatures with unique personalities live on an island isolated from the rest of the world. There are no villains in the series, as conflicts arise from the many whimsical situations the characters face.

All told, seven full episodes of the dub have been found, along with six partial episodes. Movie Madness is a bit of an oddball, though. A YouTuber named Ginger Futley uploaded the full episode under the title "Hedgehog in the Nebula", but that video is currently inaccessible due to a copyright strike on the video.

Additional Details

A user, Terry the Cat, recently had a conversation with Mike Pollock, the voice of Bigoriki in the dub. Pollock confirmed that the new CG series is being dubbed. He even reprises his role as Bigoriki, now called Carlin, in the new Kikoriki dub. He also confirmed that he voices Boboriki, now called Barry, and that Wayne Grayson reprises his role as Wolliriki, now called Wally. He also confirmed that two feature-length films had also been dubbed into English, with a third on the way. Pollock, however, does not know where the episodes of the 4Kids dub are.

Oh my god, those characters names are totally carnaged. The show is sorta South Park style sitcom, based around social and aging problems, and it has really long run with no fading popularity in Russia. Too bad that show is obscure to western public.

I remember this aired on Pop here in Britain once. Saw like five seconds of it then turned over, although I think that may have been an ad or something....

There is an easily googlable recording of the title sequence for this dub, why isn't that here?
