Mameshiba is a series of Japanese television interstitials created by Dentsu. Debuting in 2008, 20 thirty-second animated clips offered trivia delivered by Mameshiba, a bean dog creature. The shorts were offered to television channels as an alternative to running commercials. In May 2009, Dentsu's US division, DCI-LA announced its intent to bring the property to western markets.[1]

On April 8, 2010, the official Mameshiba Facebook page and website announced that the shorts had begun airing with an English dub on ARC: The A&R Channel in the United States.[2][3] Voice actress Tabitha St. Germain lists the show on her resume, saying she played various roles and that it was recorded by Westwood Media in Vancouver, Canada.[4] Valin Shinyei played the titular character and James Corrigall has been listed as the dub's director.[5]

To date, only two of the twenty shorts have surfaced online in their dubbed format. The A&R Channel is no longer active and no known home video release of Mameshiba is known to exist.
