The Telebugs is a cartoon from the 1980s about the adventures of three robots with televisions for heads. It was produced by Telebug Enterprises (later Telemagination) for Television South and aired weekdays on Children's ITV for 3 seasons from 6 January 1986 to 14 December 1987.
The robots' names are C.H.I.P. (Coordinated Hexadecimal Information Processor), S.A.M.A.N.T.H.A. (Solar Activated Micro Automated Non-inTerference Hearing Apparatus) and B.U.G. (Binary Unmanned Gamma camera) - who were accompanied by a flying video pack called M.I.C. (Mobile Independent Camera). They were invented by Professor Brainstrain to stop enemies such as Baron Bullybyte, Magna, Angel Brain, Z.U.D.O. (Zero-failure Universal Data Optimizer) Bug and Arcadia, whilst working as reporters for a TV executive named Angus McStarch.
Apart from 3 VHS tapes of the first season released by Video Gems, the series has never seen any further home media releases.
