Monchhichis is an American animated fantasy-comedy television series produced by Hanna-Barbera (H-B) for ABC's Saturday morning children's programming. It ran in 1983, airing 13 episodes that spanned one season. It was based on the Japanese line of dolls released by Sekiguchi Corporation, who licensed them to Mattel to be released in the United States. It was originally packaged as part of The Monchhichis/Little Rascals/Richie Rich Show, but it was short-lived due to low ratings.

The entire series has been released on DVD.





The music was composed by Hoyt Curtin, with musical supervision from Paul DeKorte.
