Mr. Bogus is a 1991 animated television series created by Voltron creator Peter Keefe, directed and produced by Tom Burton with Claudia Burton of Zodiac Entertainment, and was only aired in syndication from 1991 to 1993. It is loosely-based on the French / Belgian clay animation series of shorts simply titled, Bogus. Each episode is separated into two distinct parts, one using mostly traditional cel-based animation and another using what the show is based on, which are 42 localized versions of the 300 original clay animation shorts. Characters often walked around on a kitchen counter having various adventures with common household items.

Summary[edit]

Cel-animated version[edit]

In the cel-animated version, Mr. Bogus is a yellow gremlin-like creature living in the walls of the suburban home of Tommy Anybody, alternately creating problems and/or accidentally solving them. Sometimes Bogus adventures to his own world, Bogusland, a distorted alternate dimension of curved and warped perspective and bizarre plots. He often encountered the feared dust bunnies known on the show as Dirt Dudes.

Clay animated version[edit]

The clay animated version is a series of shorts that are localized versions of several episodes of the 1987 French / Belgian series of shorts simply titled Bogus, and served as lead-ins to commercial breaks. They were originally produced by Antenne 2, Y.C. Aligator Film and Chin Chin Production, and were created by Michel Durieux and Ghislain Honoré. They were first aired on October 30, 1987, and reran from October 2, 1988 to February 1990. There were 300 episodes created, but only 42 were localized and used in the 42 episodes of the cel-animated version.[2]

In its original 1987 plot, the male house owner woke up by his alarm clock, drank coffee, took his keys and left from home to work. But during his absence, the house wasn't alone. Bogus, a funny little yellow character, fate because of his hiding place and saw a short and fun adventures with surrounding objects. He clumsily discovers the world around them in different rooms of the house (such as the bathroom and the attic) and always provoked laughter from the viewers.[2]

In the 1991 localized version, the original voice-acting and background music were changed to Cam Clarke's voice-acting and the instrumental version of the cel-animated version's opening theme.
