Bumpety Boo is an English adaptation of the 1985 anime Hey! Bumboo (へーい!ブンブー Hēi! Bumbū), produced by Saban Entertainment in 1989.[1] This dub covered 129 of the 130 episode series and aired on Canada's Family Channel and Australian television in the mid-90s. The original Japanese score was omitted and it was replaced with an American score by Haim Saban and Shuki Levy. In 1990, it was released on VHS for the first time by Celebrity Home Entertainment's Just For Kids Division.

Saban's license expired on February 28, 2007.[2]


As of 2018, none of the English dubbed episodes cannot be found on websites like YouTube, Dailymotion or Archive. Although, the dub can be found on websites like eBay [3] and Amazon.[4] Its worth-noting that YouTuber ThePreviewsGuy VHSOpenings[5] uploaded the opening and closings of the VHS releases of Bumpety Boo including "Bumpety Boo is Born" and "The Desert Adventure". However, the German dub was based on this dub and Haim Saban and Shuki Levi score was left intact. Also, some of the German dubbed episodes can be found on YouTube making it the closest way to watch the English version of the show.

On August 23rd, 2019, YouTuber Grant Heyman uploaded the full English dubbed VHS tape of Bumpety Boo: The Rad Mobile.
