Mike, Lu & Og is an American animated television series created by Mikhail Shindel, Mikhail Aldashin and Charles Swenson for Cartoon Network, and the 7th of the network's Cartoon Cartoons. The series follows a girl named Mike, a foreign exchange student from Manhattan; a self-appointed island princess named Lu; and a boy-genius named Og. The trio takes part in a variety of adventures as Mike and the island's natives share their customs with each other.

Fifty-two eleven-minute episodes were produced by Mikhail Shindel's Kinofilm Animation in Los Angeles and animated by Mikhail Aldashin at Studio Pilot in Russia, featuring two stories per episode. The series featured voice actors Nika Futterman as Mike, Nancy Cartwright as Lu, and Dee Bradley Baker as Og. Mike, Lu & Og is known for its distinctive animation style, similar to shows produced by Klasky Csupo, such as Rugrats, Duckman, The Wild Thornberrys, Rocket Power and As Told by Ginger.

The series ran in reruns on Boomerang from 2006 to 2011. On November 6, 2017, the series was added to Cartoon Network on Demand.

Premise

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 briefly sink then and "pop up like a cork" every "few hundred years or so"). She found herself dumped on a forgotten, scantily mapped island populated by descendants of a British shipwreck. This island is called Albonquetine, named after one of their founders, Joshua Wendell Albonquetine. It may be based on the real-life Pitcairn Islands. The castaways have "gone native" and are trying to behave like Polynesians, with varying degrees of success. Amongst other things, this explains Og's name and his fashion sense (or lack thereof).
