Micro Ventures is an American animated sci-fi/educational adventure series of segments as part of the live-action variety show The Banana Splits Adventure Hour, produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions for NBC's Saturday morning programming. It ran in 1968, airing 4 episodes. Micro Ventures was cut from The Banana Splits Adventure Hour when it was rerun as The Banana Splits and Friends Show, leading to somewhat little proof that Micro Ventures was ever part of The Banana Splits Adventure Hour to begin with. Micro Ventures itself was not forgotten entirely, though, as it did rerun on its own on Cartoon Network and Boomerang.

The entire series has been released on DVD.
