Boes ("Ox Tales") is a Dutch newspaper gag-a-day comic strip created by Wil Raymakers and Thijs Wilms. It was created in 1980 and spawned a popular anime television series between 1988 and 1991 called Ox Tales in the English-speaking world. The comic managed to outlive the animated adaptation and still continues to appear as a column strip in several Dutch daily and weekly newspapers.
Between 1988 and 1991 the comics series was adapted into an animated TV series, produced by Telecable Benelux B.V., Teleimage Japan Inc. / Meander Studio. A total of 101 episodes were made and broadcast internationally in English, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Hebrew, Portuguese, French, German and Swedish.
