Mike, Lu & Og was an American animated television series produced created by Chuck Swenson and produced by Kinofilm Studios that ran on Cartoon Network. The show was the seventh Cartoon Cartoon, and was based on a Cartoon Cartoon short that premiered on November 6, 1998. The series premiered on November 12, 1999 (along with Courage the Cowardly Dog) and 26 half-hour episodes were produced, featuring two stories per episode. The final episode aired on May 27th, 2001, and the series was not picked up for a third season, making it the first Cartoon Cartoon series to end its production.
Reruns of the show aired from 2001-2003 on Cartoon Network. Reruns of Mike, Lu, and Og also aired on Boomerang beginning from June 5th, 2006, though eventually stopped airing in March 2011.
The show follows a girl named Mike, a foreign exchange student from Manhattan; a stuck up island princess named Lu; and a native boy and gifted inventor named Og. The trio takes part in a variety of adventures as Mike and the island's natives share their customs with each other.
Mike applied as a foreign exchange student, and on a lark asked to be sent to a tropical island (which has the strange capability to sink and pop up "like a cork" a few moments later every "few hundred years or so"). She found herself dumped on a forgotten, barely mapped island populated by descendants of a British shipwreck (which is why Lu and Og, and their parents, speak perfect English). This island may be based on the real-life Pitcairn Island. The Castaways have "gone native" and are trying to behave like Polynesians, with varying degrees of success.
