The Tooniverse has had many of its own versions of live-action TV series in its dimension over the years. Gilligan, Mork, Fonzie, Punky Brewster, Ed Grimley, Jeannie, Mr. Spock, the Brady Bunch, and Batman and Superman. Their situations may have changed from the original - Gilligan is in outer space! The Brady Bunch hang out with pandas! - but these are their lives in the world of animated cartoons.
'Yo Soy Betty, la Fea' of Colombia, which has a live-action version in at least eleven different countries, including 'Ugly Betty' of the United States (Mexico remade the series twice!), now also has an animated version called 'Betty Toons'.

Like those other animated series mentioned above, the cartoon version of Betty also has a gimmick - the stories chronicle Betty's exploits as a little girl, much like those recent minisodes about Shawn and Gus of 'Psych'.

'Betty Toons' is televised in the USA on the Tele-Futura network on Saturday mornings.
