Storyline

In 1872 London in a world of humanoid animals, Willy Fog is the quintessential British gentleman of rigid sedentary habits, much to his new servants', Rigodon and Tico, pleasure. Suddenly, Fog is forced to take an extraordinary wager on behalf of a friend that he can circumnavigate the world in 80 days. Now, with little but a satchel carrying the necessary funds, Fog and his staff start their journey. Unknown to Fog, he is doggedly pursued by Scotland Yard detectives Dix and Bully on suspicion of a bank robbery. More seriously, however, Fog's movements are also being shadowed by Transfer, a villainous master of disguise who is commissioned by his enemies to interfere in the journey in any way he can. Regardless, Fog is determined to see the challenge through, finding dangers and friends, of which the gracious Princess Romy is the most welcome of new companions, on a journey unlike any other of their time.

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 jeanserge21See 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.
