Cantinflas y Sus Amigos is an educational children's cartoon that was based on the Mexican cartoon series Cantinflas Show in 1979. The show was created and produced by Televisa, then known as Telesistema Mexicano. The company was also responsible for the distribution of the show in Mexico.

The show got dubbed in English, French, Israeli, Chinese, Swedish, and Russian. Hannah-Barbera dubbed the show over in english. 51 episodes where produced in each language. Though both the Spanish and English dubbed got done at the same time.

There's not much information about the Amigo and Friends "version" of the show. From articles I keep reading,it seems to be a separate season in mexico for the Cantinflas show, but Hannah-Barbera might of helped the show becuse both English and Spanish dubs got done at the same time with the new episodes. There's no clear air dates. If anyone knows the story of this show please help.

Findings[edit | edit source]

No English episodes has appeared on the internet yet, but the begging sequence is on youtube. Most of the series is available in Spanish on youtube, but it has only on DVD release with only some shorts available on it. I have not looked for the other dubs yet but I will update, for now the whole English version is missing.
