Amigo and Friends TV Show Intro

Amigo and Friends is an animated series produced by Hanna-Barbera, as an English dub of the Mexican cartoon series The Cantinflas Show.


The show, which concentrates on a wide range of subjects intended to educate children, follows Amigo, a little Mexican character, who goes on educational adventures through time and space and gets to visit Shakespeare, see the ancient pyramids, and even travel to other planets. The animated Amigo is based on the comic character Cantinflas, played by the Mexican actor and comedian Mario Moreno Reyes. 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.

In 1982, Hanna-Barbera Productions dubbed the series into English and retitled it Amigo and Friends. The show aired in syndication across the United States through Viacom. The two primary voice actors were John Stephenson, who narrated each episode, and Don Messick, who voiced Amigo. It was one of several Hanna-Barbera TV shows that featured famous Hollywood stars in cartoons, but in the case of Amigo, the project originated in Mexico.
