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


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 Marie Louise de la Ramée, it has been faithful in keeping the storyline accurate.


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


A film, titled The Dog of Flanders: The Movie (劇場版 フランダースの犬?, Gekijōban Furandāsu no Inu) was released in March 1997.

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. It was also used in the anime adaptation of Re:Zero -Starting Life in Another World- as protagonist Subaru Natsuki's ringtone.[1]
