Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century

Here's a Sherlockian curiosity that apparently aired around the turn of this century. Animation is not really my cup of tea so I probably won't seek it out. But I have to admit that it's got a maddeningly catchy theme song.

  1. I have seen this animated series. Found it to be OK. Just my two cents though!

  2. LOL I had to agree. "Maddeningly catchy" indeed. The stories themselves are what you might call "very loosely based" on Sherlockian canon -- indeed, it seems as though the writers took a Sherlockian title and invented something that would fit their theme, without any reference to the original material at all. What drove me crazy about this series was that the producers mixed two or even three different styles of animation in a kind of hodge-podge, apparently depending on what they could afford.
