Around the World in 79 Days is a series of animated segments as part of the Cattanooga Cats, produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions for ABC's Saturday morning children's programming debuting. It ran in 1969, airing 17 episodes that spanned one season.

Based on the novel Around the World in 80 Days, the shorts follow Phineas Fogg, Jr., followed by Jenny Trent and her assistant Hoppy, as they must travel around the world in a balloon in less than 80 days to retrieve Phineas's great great grandfather's fortune. But if they fail to do the quest, the fortune will go to Crumden, who chases them to sabotage their journey with his pet monkey Smirky, and the not-so-bright driver Bumbler.




The music was composed by Hoyt Curtin.
