Ox Tales, also known as The Tales of Boes' Gang (げらげらブース物語 Geragera Būsu Monogatari), is an animated television series produced by Telecable Benelux B.V. and Cosmos Studio in association with Saban Entertainment. It was a co-production between Japan and the Netherlands based on a Dutch comic strip Boes created by Wil Raymakers and Thijs Wilms. The series ran on the Japanese network TV Tokyo from April 7, 1987[1]–March 29, 1988. It consists of 102 15-minute episodes, which were usually transmitted as 51 half-hour shows of two episodes each.

The series has been aired in many countries outside Japan and has been dubbed and subtitled in English and numerous other languages.

The plot follows the adventures of Ollie the ox as he runs The Funny Farm, containing possibly every creature known, with his best friend Jack the turtle while narrated by a sarcastic toucan.

Ox Tales still continues to appear as a column strip in several Dutch daily and weekly newspapers.
