Mon Cherie CoCo (モンシェリ CoCo) is an anime series based on the 1971 manga of the same name created by Waki Yamato. This anime was produced by Nippon TV Video in 1972.

The series was aired every Sunday from 7:30 pm to 8:00 pm from August 27th, 1972, to November 26th of the same year.[1][2]

According to Hiroshi Shimosaki, financial problems were the main cause of the series' cancellation, in addition to the resignation of Kiyoshi Watanabe (producer).

None of the episodes have been made publicly available, without even any mirror online despite its retransmissions up until 1990.

For years, the only still-accessible material in the series was an opening uploaded by Masami Jun and articles in newspapers at the time. However, in 2022, the ending theme for the show has also been found. On June 12th, 2024, VHS clips of what is presumed to be from episodes 1, 3, and 5 were uploaded to Twitter/X by a user named @video_vhs, thus making this the first time footage beyond the opening itself has been seen in over 30 years. The same clips were later reuploaded to YouTube.[3] On June 20 of the same year, a VHS clip of what is presumed to be from episode 13 were uploaded to Twitter/X by @video_vhs, however the original tweet has since been deleted but reuploads are out there.[4]
