willyFog Parents of a certain age will have just been taken back in time and be saying, "I remember THAT!" and the rest of you won't have a clue who Willy Fog is!

'Round the World in 80 Days with Willy Fog' was a 26-episode cartoon series that first aired back in 1983 (yes it really was almost 30 years ago...now I feel old!) and tells the famous Jules Verne story 'Around the World in 80 Days'.

Set in 1872, Willy Fog is the star who accepts a bet of &3163;20,000 and sets out to prove that it's possible to travel around the world in 80 days.

He leaves the private members London Reform Club promising to return by 8.45pm on 21 December 1872, and sets off on an epic adventure with his newly-hired butler Rigodon.

Hot on their heels are three other characters who are intent on hindering and sabotaging the journey!

willyFog2If you loved this TV show back-in-the-day then you're bound to love it now and so will your kids, and this time you won't have to wait a week between each episode!

With an original rrp of £24.49 this 5-disc DVD box set is a bargain at just £6.93 and delivery is free too; brill!
