''Maxie's World'' was a 1989 AnimatedAnthology series released by Claster Television, inc. and producted by Creator/DICEntertainment. Airing in syndication in the United States, the show served as the umbrella for three series. In addition to ''Maxie's World'' (the lead series), the show also included rebroadcasts of two series produced earlier in the 1980s: ''WesternAnimation/BeverlyHillsTeens'' and the animated version of ''Series/PunkyBrewster''.

* The title cartoon, based on the Maxie line of dolls produced by Creator/{{Hasbro}} (as a competitor to Creator/{{Mattel}}'s ''Franchise/{{Barbie}}''). The title character was a beautiful 17-year-old high school senior who was Miss Everything at Surfside High School (in an unnamed community, presumably in southern California or Florida) who also produced her own daily afternoon TV talk show. ''Maxie's World'' was the only new series of the bunch.
* ''WesternAnimation/BeverlyHillsTeens'', a 1987 series featuring exaggeratedly wealthy teenagers from Beverly Hills, California.
* ''Series/PunkyBrewster'', the 1985-1986 animated adaptation of the popular Creator/{{NBC}} DomCom series starring Soleil Moon Frye in the title role. The only non-DIC Entertainment series of the bunch, ''Punky Brewster'' was produced by Creator/RubySpears Productions.

The cartoons were shown on a rotating basis, with Maxie getting multiple airings each week.

While distributed nationally during the 1989-1990 season, reruns continued to be aired by local stations throughout the 1990s. All three shows had selected episodes released on VHS to the home video network, but as for DVD, ''Maxie's World'' wasn't released until October 2015... ''Punky Brewster'' and ''Beverly Hills Teens'' were both available on DVD as early as 2013.
