This animated series contains elements of both book and movie. The Lindenbrook expedition (Prof. Lindenbrook, his niece Cindy, his assistant Alec McEwan and their guide Lars (and his pet duck Gertrude)) race to the center of the earth to find a way back to the surface. They follow the trail of explorer Arne Sacnusson. They are opposed by Count Sacnusson (Arne's evil descendant) and his servant Torg, who are trying to beat them to the earth's core at all costs. On the way, both parties encounter lost civilizations and a host of monsters. Fun animated fantasy/adventure.
The only other person to comment on this series recalled seeing it as a child growing up in Boston. Growing up in southeastern New Hampshire, I'm sure we both watched it on channel 38 (then an independent UHF station). On weekend mornings, they ran syndicated cartoon shows like this, the Fantastic Voyage animated series and hosts of more traditional fair (e.g. Popeye, Warner Bros., etc.). It definitely made for an entertaining alternative to the programming available on mainstream television. Unlike the other reviewer, I can't recall any specific episodes, but I can tell you that I enjoyed this series. For anyone into the sci-fi/fantasy cartoon genre, check it out. You'll be pleasantly surprised.
