Trivia

The original novel has the Princess change into a European dress; most adaptations have her keep her Indian dress to emphasize her Oriental character. The series reaches a compromise between the two by having the Princess wear a dark funeral sari for part of the show and a brighter-colored sari for the remainder. See more »

One of my favorite cartoons
25 August 2006 | by (France) – See all my reviews

This cartoon is one of my favorite one. I saw it when a child at the Spanish TV in the eighties. Of course, it is adapted from Jules Verne's novel with animals. Phileas Fog is a lion, his wife a nice female cat and so on. But the adaptation introduces new characters and in particular a gangster who will follow Willy Fog (Phileas Fog) to make him fail in his mission. We also find a new character as a little mouse, who is Rigodon's friend (Rigodon is Passe-Partout in the novel). This makes the cartoon even more interesting than the original novel. Indeed, when I read the book I was highly disappointed! Jules Verne should have seen the cartoon before writing his book. Moreover, the cartoon also introduces very nice songs during all the series. I heard these songs and the emotion is still the same.
