  • An all-star television adaptation of the Jules Verne novel, set in the late 19th Century. An Englishman named Phileas Fogg makes a bet that, using all the modern forms of transportation, he can travel around the world in 80 days. He and his sidekick begin their voyage in a hot-air balloon, and make their way through Europe and on to India, where they save a widow from committing suttee (killing herself in her husband's funeral pyre). Then they travel by train in America and by ship across the Pacific. Phileas and his companion finally complete the loop, but he believes they have arrived just a little too late to win their bet.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...A genuinely original comedy....[An] intriguing premise and ingenious development..."

    "...It is fiendishly funny farce indeed, and perhaps a little more: farce with a heart to its looniness..."
