Phileas Fogg was passionately in love with Belinda Maze, whose uncle, Lord Maze, sternly disapproved of the commoner Fogg marrying his niece. Fogg proposed a wager: if he could travel around the world in eighty days, then Lord Maze would give him Belinda's hand in marriage; if Fogg failed, he would abandon her. The two men also made a side bet of 20,000. Fogg was accompanied by his manservant, Jean Passepartout, and Passepartout's pet monkey, Toto. They employed all the methods of transportation available in the late 19th Century balloons, trains, elephants, and steam ships in the course of their journey. Fogg and Passepartout dispensed geographical knowledge to the audience at each of their stops. Lord Maze hired a saboteur, Mr. Fix, to interfere with Fogg and Passepartout's journey. Unlike his counterpart in Verne's novel, Fix was not a Scotland Yard detective attempting to arrest Fogg on suspicion of bank robbery.Written by
Once very much for a long time, in already nonexistent country (USSR) showed this remarkable animated serial on TV..., viewing of this animated cartoon was top of pleasure! It everyone who had the TV looked, both children and adults... Cares and employment aside left all. In this cartoon film, on a number with flashing humor and fables cognitive episodes got on also. Travel on the countries and continents, the nature (plants and animals), people and their customs, a word a cartoon serial were the encyclopedia for boys and girls of our huge country. But the encyclopedia animated and fascinating! The Australian animators have worked at glory! It is a pity, that now our TV has passed to display of low-grade and silly cartoon films, having forgotten about existence of such remarkable cartoon film as " around the world in eighty days "
