   Malachi and Friends is an American animated comedy television series. It was created by Mala Miles and Austin Miles. It first premiered on CBS on September 12, 1970, which led to a series of half hour episodes.

Austin Miles created the characters for Mala Miles Productions production logo, as well as an unpublished comic book series in the 1960s, and later reluctantly pitched the series to CBS as a Saturday morning cartoon.

Malachi was conceived by Austin Miles since 1960 shortly before a solicitation for a series of animated shorts. Austin created a world and named the characters.

The show was commercially successful, establishing Malachi as the mascot of Bear Bones Productions, and has spawned a successful franchise, and adaptations into other media, such as video games and films. Merchandise for Malachi and Friends includes toys and print media.

In December 2017, TBCM sold the show to Viacom Megassa, and as of January 2018, the show airs on Comedy Central.
