Around the World in 79 Days
Loosely based upon the novel Around the World in Eighty Days by Jules Verne, this was an adventure segment involving balloonist Phineas "Finny" Fogg Jr. is conceived as the great-great grandson from America of the main character Phileas Fogg in the novel. He and reporter teenagers Jenny Trent and Hoppy set out on a globetrotting adventure to travel around the world in 79 days and beat the original record set by Finny's ancestor. The trio in competition for both the record and a $1,000,000 prize against the sinister Crumden, who supposedly was the butler of the original Phileas. Crumden is aided by his idiotic chauffleur Bumber and his pet monkey Smirky. Unlike the other segments, Around the World in 79 Days was serial with a continuing story, however, as with many shows made during this period, it has no specific ending.
Around the World in 79 Days remained as part of Cattanooga Cats, which was reduced to a half-hour. Motormouse and Autocat ran concurrently with Cattanooga Cats until both meet their demise at the end of the 1970-1971 season.
