In the 19th century, detective Sherlock Holmes goes up against his nemesis, the dastardly criminal Professor Moriarty. This is a Disney-esque adaptation of the Arthur Conan Doyle tales, with the characters all being anthropomorphic creatures. Written by

The Japanese version of the show shows that the characters all say Sherlock Hound's last name is Holmes. However, the English-dubbed episodes portray Watson calling Sherlock by the name of Hound (strange since in fact he's a fox, but the title "Hound" probably refers to the majority of the cast being dogs).

I'm not quite old enough to really remember watching this show as a kid, but I feel like I did, the same way I feel like I watched Warriors of the Wind (movie) and Robotech. The only reason I thought about going back to it was that I heard that Hayao Miyazaki wrote and directed the first six episodes (for a detailed explanation of the origins of this show, go to Nausicaa.net). Well, I now own two of the videos (about eight to ten episodes), and while I can identify most of the ones that were done by Miyazaki, the rest of the episodes were great, too. The details in all the episodes are incredible, and the stories are well-paced and exciting. I especially love the Blue Carbunkle and Little Client episodes (both by Miyazaki), which are very touching, but I won't spoil them for you.
