YMMV: Around the World with Willy Fog
  • Ear Worm: Most of the songs, themes and leitmotifs. Another shining example of how the 80s = awesome theme songs. Double points for being so in several languages.
  • Long Runner: In the UK by accident. The show was designed for syndication and meant to be shown one episode a day. CBBC showed one episode a week, meaning it stretched out the series for entire year. By the end of it, presenter Andy Crane and the CBBC held a competition to celebrate the end. Just thankful they were rid of it.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff:
    • It was enormously popular in the UK.
    • It still is immensely popular in the Czech Republic. It keeps appearing approximately once a year. New generations of children fall in love with the show, and adults watch it with nostalgia goggles. It helps that the voice cast is made of famous respectable actors.
  • Memetic Mutation: In Spain there is a slang idiom made after this show: "ˇTienes más peligro que Willy Fog con el abono transporte!". Which roughly translates to: "You're more dangerous than Willy Fog with a public transport pass!"
