Another childhood favourite...
7 October 2003 | by (Captain Nemo's Submarine) – See all my reviews

"Around the World with Willy Fogg" is basically just Verne's "Around the World in 80 Days" anime-style with one or two characters added and Fog's named changed to something easier on the tongue.

This is one of my favourite childhood tv-series'.

Everybody (oh well, next to everybody) know the story, and if you find this series watch it. It's dated but despite the artistic licence with the story is true to Jules Verne's spirit of adventure. The English version even has a great song. You'd have to be very stuck-up not to like it.

Oh yes, everybody's animals too. So this is a nice little anthropomorphic spin on the tale.
