Did You Know?


Peter O'Toole's voice performance as Sherlock Holmes was not his first connection to the role. He was Billy Wilder's first choice for the Victorian sleuth in " The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes ", and he was also sought to play the Baker Street detective in the 1979 " Murder by Decree " where he would have had Laurence Olivier by his side as Watson.

Wonderful Little Gems

These Four Sherlock Holmes cartoons, as well as the literary adaptations done by Burbank Studios Australia, are fun little pieces. They were made in the 80's, and played on TV, sometimes on Saturday mornings, but mostly on school holidays to give kids an alternative to Soap Operas in the days when there were only three channels from which to choose.

For kids raised on anime, these will seem boring, they also lack all the high pitched screaming and shrieking prevalent in the cartoons on TV today.

The cartoons give a nice representation of Victorian England both in locations and in the characterizations.

Definitely recommended for fans of Sherlock Holmes, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and cartoon adaptations of literary classics.
