Around the World with Willy Fog (Spanish: La vuelta al mundo de Willy Fog, Japanese: アニメ80日間世界一周 Anime Hachijūnichikan Sekai Isshū) is a Spanish-Japanese animated adaptation of Around the World in Eighty Days by Jules Verne, produced by Spanish studio BRB Internacional and Televisión Española, and animation by Japanese studio Nippon Animation, which was first broadcast on TVE1 in 1984.

An English dub of the series was recorded at Intersound, Inc., and was directed by Tom Wyner. While the series never achieved popularity in the United States, the English version found fame when it was broadcast on Children's BBC in the United Kingdom.

Synopsis

In 1872 London, 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.
