Western Animation: Around the World in 80 Days

Good show, Passepartout!

Around The World In Eighty Days is an Australian 16 episode cartoon show produced in 1972 and a loose adaptation of Jules Verne's novel of the same name.

Phileas Fogg wants to marry the lovely Belinda Maze, niece to the unscrupulous Lord Maze. Maze makes a wager with Fogg that if Fogg can go around the world in eighty days, he may marry Belinda (with 50,000 thrown in as a sweetener - "It's a bet!"). Fogg, along with his companion Passepartout and his pet monkey Toto, sets out to do so. Lord Maze, seeking to win the bet, sends a hired thug named Fix to prevent Fogg from reaching his goal.

Notable for being the first Australian cartoon shown on U.S. network TV.
