Sherlock Hound was made for a Japanese audience, an Italian audience, and an American/English audience. The unique thing about it was that, since it was the 1970's, they experimented with animating each country's copy directly to match mouth movements of pre-recorded dubs, instead of the other way round. (Mostly just by inserting more or less mouth animation, but there you go.) So each country's version has a slightly different runtime, and the DVDs in this country were released with Japanese on one side of the disk and English on the other.

The Japanese dub actually includes quite a bit more information and sophistication than the English dub, so it's a pity not to watch that version. (I think they were aiming at a teenage audience, whereas the American producers thought of mystery shows as something that elementary kids watch.) But OTOH, the American voice actors bring back some good memories of yore for an older fan like me.

Keep an eye out for Miyazaki's fat cat (seen in many other Ghibli works), for the Japanese students studying in England (drawing on real Japanese history), and for Mrs. Hudson, as well as many other Sherlockian references.

(And yes, it's an anime. It looks like an anime. If you don't recognize this particular 70's anime drawing style, you need to watch more old anime.)

You young whippersnappers just don't understand how things used to be. If the animation industry in Japan goes downhill any further, you'll see an awful lot of Japanese studios scrubbing up funding by co-production again, or even trying to beat the Koreans at selling their skills to outside companies.
