Status: Partially Lost

Mr. Bogus is an American animated TV series originally aired in September 1991 until November 1993. It had three seasons and had 43 episodes total.

The show was based on a series of over 300 French/Belgian claymation shorts called Bogus from 1987,[1] of which around 42 were inserted in the 1991 American series proper as transitional skits.

Premise[edit | edit source]

Mr. Bogus is a tiny yellow gremlin-like creature who lives between the walls of a normal suburban house. He likes to play with common household objects and tends to get involved in trouble, but he is a good-natured person and tries to help others too, usually the humans of his environment who are unaware of his existence.

Mr. Bogus alternates from interacting with the real human world, where his main enemies tend to be animals such as a villainous rat and his simple-minded mole henchman, and going to his own bizarre world, Bogusland, inhabited with creatures of his own species.

Episode List and Status[edit | edit source]

This animated series didn't have a proper re-release after it finished being re-aired on TV in English. It had a few VHS releases in miscellaneous foreign countries, but most episodes that are available online come from personal recordings.
