Dog of Flanders (フランダースの犬 Furandāsu no Inu?) is a 1975 Japanese animated television series adaptation of Maria Louise Ramé's novel of the same name, produced by Nippon Animation.

Production[edit]

The animators conducted extensive research on 19th century Flanders.[citation needed] The buildings depicted in the series were modeled after the Bokrijk open air museum[citation needed]. Although there have been some changes from the original story by Maria Louise Rame, it has been faithful in keeping the storyline accurate.

Broadcast[edit]

Dog of Flanders aired on Fuji TV between January 5, 1975 and December 28, 1975. It is also been repeated daily in early mornings in 2012.

References in other media[edit]

The main opening theme song "Yoake-no Michi" (よあけのみち) has always been popular in Japan since the series' debut. It was featured in a daydream sequence in the live action adaptation of Nodame Cantabile, starring Juri Ueno and Hiroshi Tamaki, with the character of Nodame singing the song while taking a bath.
