Mimi and Mr. Bobo was an animated series created by Myriam Ballesteros via her company, M.B. Producciones (now Imira Entertainment) under co-production with Television Espanola (T.V.E.) and Icon Animation.[1][2] A season of 26 episodes was produced and aired in 1999 on the aforementioned channel. The series was later retooled as a series of shorts now going under the title of Mimi and the Gang (which may also be the alternative title for the original 22-minute series). It's unknown how many shorts were made, and if they premiered on TV or the internet.

Sypnosis

Who would've guessed it! They're just a gang of neighborhood kids but they can turn the town upside down in a blink of the eyes. Shopkeepers, mobsters, rock stars, and other characters - no one can escape the Machiavellian adventures of Mimi and her friends. (Official description from Imira.)

The series follows the day-to-day life of Mimi, an imaginative girl living in a big city. She and her friends have a penchant for getting into mischief and whenever they go around the city, they always cause mayhem everywhere they go. The adventures they go to range from ordinary, to over-the-top, surrealistic, and out of this world to the point where no one is safe from their crazy topsy-turvy hijinks and shenanigans the kids do.

A few episodes of the series managed to make their way onto the internet. The original European Spanish and English dubs of the episode Clock Shock (Maldito Reloj) are viewable through the M.B. Producciones YouTube channel. The rest of the series, both the original and later shorts, are viewable via its Greek and Arabic dubs on other websites, including YouTube also. It's unknown if the rest of the series will be found in either the English language, the original European Spanish dub, or both, given its obscurity and rarity as well as the fact that there are no home releases of it.
