Ramona is a Canadian children's television series which followed the life of eight-year-old title character Ramona Quimby (Sarah Polley). It was based on the Ramona book series by Beverly Cleary.

The television series debuted on September 10, 1988, and its ten episodes spanned four months.

The TV series was released on video by Lorimar Home Video, but when Lorimar Home Video was acquired by Warner Communications, video releases were then released by Warner Home Video.

Eight-year-old Ramona Quimby (Sarah Polley) feels that no one really understands her. She's bright, imaginative, and according to her older sister, Beezus, a "pest". Every day she tries to find out more about herself and her world, with an optimism that only children possess. The series follows Ramona's adventures in school and at home as her family struggles with financial woes and the coming of a new baby.
