Bleep and Booster is a children's cartoon series by William Timym (pronounced Tim) originally shown on the BBC's Blue Peter. 313 five minute episodes were released between 1963 and 1977.

Bleep is an alien from the planet Miron/Myron with a spaceship, whilst Booster is a young human who travels with Bleep performing galactic missions for Bleep's moustached father.

The planet Miron/Myron is portrayed as being built almost entirely out of chrome, with its capital at Miron/Myron City. The inhabitants are portrayed as robot-like creatures with flexible arms and legs like rubber hoses. Their feet are cupped and they have antennae and a third eye in the centre of their foreheads.

Two episodes of the series, The Giant Brain and Solaron were released in 1993 on VHS in the UK by PolyGram Video. Since then, there have been no other episodes released.

The cartoons were animatic animation, still pictures which were slowly panned, with narration. The voices were by Peter Hawkins.
