Sherlock Holmes
TV Series (1984-1985). 26 Episodes. Sherlock Hound is a anime adaption of Sherlock Holmes where the characters are depicted as anthropomorphic animals, in majority dogs, such as Holmes himself and Watson. It consists of 26 episodes aired between 1984 and 1985. Meitantei Holmes (literally: "Famous Detective Holmes") is a famouse TV series Miyazaki made. It was made as a joint project between Tokyo Movie Shinsha and an Italian TV station, RAI, in 1981. Miyazaki directed 6 episodes (and wrote scripts for some of them), but the production was put on hold due to a copyright dispute with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's estate. In 1984, after the copyright dispute was finally resolved, Tokyo Movie Shinsha decided to make more episodes of Holmes and to air it as a TV series as originally planned, with totally different staff members from the first 6 episodes. The series is action packed, and really fun to watch. There are many classic Miyazaki moments -- car chases, flying scenes, a strong woman, villains turning good, etc. All the characters such as Holmes, Watson, Mrs. Hudson, and Professor Moriarty were depicted dogs.
