Loosely based on the "Sherlock Holmes" series by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Sherlock Hound turns all the classic characters into dogs. The canine Sherlock Holmes, his assistant Watson, and housemaid Mrs. Hudson work together to solve mysteries. The culprit is usually Professor Moriarty and his gang, who use all kinds of wacky contraptions to steal what they want.

I’m pretty sure that even those of you who are not familiar with the detective genre have heard the name Sherlock Holmes. A truly brilliant sleuth, a master of deduction, an expert in chemistry, a talented violinist – he is by far the most famous fictitious detective, a real icon if I may put it that way.

I love this anime ever since I got it from my local Library. I found it by accident while looking for a different video (which seemed to not actually be there) and so picked it up.

the story's and charaters are like twins. its both oubout a man who is trying to find something (montana searches for treasure, and sherlock of bad guys) and the bad guys of the series are in both shows a mastermind with to stupid helpers. their looks are almost the same in both series. and the smart girl of the series who helps the main character appears in both shows. and i could go on like this for a long time :P
