The following is a list of episodes of the animated television series Around the World with Willy Fog and its sequel Willy Fog 2.

Around the World with Willy Fog[edit]

The original series of The Adventres of Willy Fog was released in 1983 by BRB Internacional and Nippon Animation based on Around the World in Eighty Days by Jules Verne featuring various anthropomorphic animals with the main protagonists as felines (except Tico) and the main antagonists as canines. A narrator introduced each episode at the beginning of each episode and summarized the upcoming episodes at the end of each episode, a similar format of BRB’s Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds. The opening song was Around the World with Willy Fog and the closing credits song was Sílbame (aka Rigodon) by Mocedades.

There follows a race against time to reach the Reform Club before the deadline actually expires.

Willy Fog 2[edit]

The second series of The Adventures of Willy Fog was released in 1993 by BRB Internacional, Televisión Española, and Wang Film Productions and was again based on the work of Jules Verne, this time split between Journey to the Centre of the Earth and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Again, aside from the introduction of additional characters—significantly more so than in the adaptation of Around the World in 80 Days since neither Fog nor any of his friends are in Verne's books—the series followed the novel quite faithfully. It was narrated by Rigodon, who summarized both the previous and upcoming episodes at the start and end of each new edition. The opening theme song re-used the music from Around the World with Willy Fog with new words detailing the cast's journey's to the 'Centre of the Earth' and the 'Bottom of the Sea', while the closing credits used a different song to the first series, "Romy".
