Synopsis

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.

It feels strange to see Professor Moriarty actually taking part in the crimes instead of just having his henchmen doing it.

the Sound and music, i really liked the music it's not mannered .
Overall i read more
