Best of the 80s,
This review is from: Willy Fog - Around the World in 80 Days Vol. 1 [DVD] (DVD)Most people you ask who were kids in the eighties will remember Willy Fog. Based on the novel by Jules Verne, this adaptation was dubbed from Spanish to English and broadcasted on the BBC. I absolutely love it, although lost some of the series which we recorded back then. Now, here it is, digitalised and available at a very reasonable price.
Willy Fog, an English gentleman, lives in London during the Victorian era. He is challenged by a fellow member of the prestigious Reform Club to travel around the world in 80 days, to which many others bet and he stands to win, or lose twenty thousand pounds!
Accompanied by his butler Rigadon, and his friend Tico, they set out to travel the globe. This DVD sees them recieve the challenge and set off, travelling through Paris, the Alps, Italy and the Suez Canal. The adventure continues on the second DVD...
