Journey to the Centre of the Earth

CUMBERSOME RENDERING of the Jules Verne epic in earnest animated form, with Professor Oliver Lindenbrook (TED KNIGHT) and nephews doing the burrowing/underground pterodactyl races/Atlantis bit. Count Saccnusson (er, TED KNIGHT) is the evil little fucker trying to stop them. Lumpen, much like the titular destination, but had this been done in the Willy Fogg-filled 80s the Prof would’ve been a talking dog and his best mate a camp badger or something, so be grateful for small mercies.

    It was done in the Willy Fog 80s. It was his second series, or half of it (Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea was the other). Talking cat instead of dog, but apart from that pretty close.
