A co-production between the Japanese studio TMS Entertainment and the Italian channel RAI, Sherlock Hound (a.k.a. Meitantei Holmes) is a Funny Animal adaptation series of the English character Sherlock Holmes, featuring the characters... as dogs! Hayao Miyazaki, famous for his work with Studio Ghibli, directed six episodes of the series. Unfortunately, there were problems with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's estate, which led to a suspension in production. By the time the issues were resolved, Miyazaki had turned to Nausicaš of the Valley of the Wind, and the remaining episodes were directed by Kyosuke Mikuriya. It was broadcast on TV Asahi from 1984 to 1985.This anime is really a Lighter and Softer interpretation of Sherlock Holmes, but there are really awesome moments (especially in the episodes made by Miyazaki). If you like anime with more innocence and more of a sense of adventure than fighting, like those of Studio Ghibli, you will like this one.As of May 19, 2009, TMS has posted all 26 full version episodes in English on YouTube, right here. Although not for every country and out of order. A correctly ordered playlist can be found starting here.The series is not related to the childrens novels by Karen Wallace, which have a similar premise.
