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 Moh X

One of the few Western animation series that made it to the USSR
4 June 2014 | by vbzSee all my reviews

For some unknown reason, this cartoon was released on Soviet Central Television in 1981, and re-ran for several years throughout the 80s. Only 11 out of 16 episodes passed censorship (the one taking place in China didn't make it, but the US ones did). It quickly became a staple for most inquisitive kids of my generation, and opened up the world for many of us. From there, I've learned about many places, such as New Orleans, San Francisco, Mount Fuji (which shows just how little educational children's programming about geography beyond the Iron Curtain existed in those days). The dubbing and translation was first rate, and the Russian version of Passepartout, while having the same tone of voice, was somewhat less annoying than the original. It's hard to say how the show would hold up with today's internet-raised kids, but I have very fond memories of it, and can definitely trace my wanderlust to those 11 episodes.
