Jules Verne’s universally famous classic Around the world in 80 days has now been turned into a thrilling TV series. Willy Fog, an English gentleman, takes up a challenge to travel around the world in just 80 days. This cartoon series went on air on TV3 in the late 1980s in the weekend mornings.
Cartoon Journey that takes you around the world
Willy Fog hires Rigodon, a former circus performer, to replace the butler he dismissed the previous day and, unknowingly, hires Rigodon’s friend, Tico, at the same time. Later, Fog tells his fellows at London’s Reform Club that he has read an article which suggests one can travel around the world in eighty days. To prove to his skeptical colleagues that this is possible, he wagers half his £40,000 fortune that he can make the journey.
And so the journey of Willy Fog begins. It is a cartoon with lots of adventure and exploring for almost every age. Recommended!
