Dumb and Dumber: The Animated Series is a Hanna-Barbera-produced animated series based on the 1994 comedy film of the same name. The animated series premiered in 1995 on ABC.

The cartoon revolves around the continued misadventures of Lloyd and Harry after reacquiring their dogshaped van now named "Otto". It also features a new character, Kitty, a female pet purple beaver who appears to be smarter than both men. It is the final Hanna-Barbera-produced show to premiere on ABC (as well as the final Hanna-Barbera-produced show to air on broadcast network television) and one of the last Saturday morning cartoons on the network not associated with The Walt Disney Company.

Matt Frewer provided the voice of Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey's character in the movie), while Bill Fagerbakke voiced the character of Harry Dunne (Jeff Daniels' character in the movie). The animated series was written by Bennett Yellin, co-writer of the original film. The series was cancelled after one season. It aired in reruns on Cartoon Network after its cancellation.

In Britain, the series was screened on Cartoon Network before receiving terrestrial airings on Channel 4 (unlike The Mask: Animated Series and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, two other shows based on a film starring Jim Carrey, both of which were shown by the BBC).

A tape containing some episodes of the show, including "Dumb Luck", was released in Australia and Russia in the 1990s, but in the United States, there were never any tapes of the show released on home video.
