Jim and Judy in Teleland is an animated series created by Paul N. Peroff and produced by Television Screen Productions and Film Flash Productions. It was one of the first animated series made for television. The series was later shown in 1959 under the name Bob and Betty in Adventureland.

Plot

Two children named Jim and Judy enter their television for adventures.

History

Peroff created 52 episodes of the series form 1949 to 1950, but struggled to find distribution for the show. It was later sold to Venezuela and Deadwood, South Carolina in 1954, and Japan in 1956. Parents were concerned about the show, saying that their children were imitating Jim and Judy by entering their televisions.

Status

The show faded into obscurity after its initial airings, and only one of the 52 episodes have surfaced. Only the series' title card, Episode 8, and a screenshot from an unknown episode are all that remain of the show. In a video uploaded to YouTube by Anime Histopedia on May 2, 2017, it is revealed that the Japanese name for the show was "Terebi Bōya no Bōken." It was the first anime where the original audio was dubbed over by Japanese dialogue.

On June 20, 2017, YouTuber Char Char uploaded Episode 8 of the show where Jim and Judy go to the Australian Outback to catch some kangaroos.
