On the high seas the duo encounters sea creatures and destroyed ships galore; but most importantly, they find themselves prisoners aboard the ship of the dreaded Long John Silver. Alongside Kathy, Flint’s granddaughter, Jim and Gran will brave violent storms, try to keep the map safe, and ultimately try their best to find the treasure before their captors do first!
Detail-oriented, meticulous Willy Fog lives in London and is in the process of hiring a new butler. While at the pub that day, Willy finds himself faced with a fascinating question: how many days would it take to travel the world? While his comrades believe it would take three months, Willy wagers he can do it in only eighty days - a wager that his peers meet with a 20,000 pound reward if he is able to pull it off. Willy and his new butler set forth that very evening to complete their quest - but challenges await! A devious wolf has been hired to stop Willy from achieving his goal, and two nosy inspectors are on Willy's trail, certain that he was responsible for a bank robbery...
Animal Treasure Island and 80 Days with Willy Fog are whimsical, fun adventure anime involving various animals. They'd appeal to the same audiences, and are cute to watch - try it on for size!
Animal Treasure Island is very similar in its style to that of Willy Fog. It has that sort of old parchment look to it and it is charming and adorable. The main difference is obviously the cast being anthropromorphic animals in Willy Fog with no humans but Animal Treasure Island has some humans thrown in.
Both are retellings of famous stories we are bound to know and love and both are aimed at children although there is plenty to be enjoyed in both for adults (apart from the English voice acting in Animal Treasure Island!). I would find myself recommending both if you like either one.
One night, Kitsune's father tells him about a mysterious treasure map that's been passed down from generation to generation. As the heir to the family, Kitsune is set to inherit the item on his next birthday – but plans change when bandits known as the Torafugu Pirates suddenly burst into the room, stealing both the map, and Kitsune himself. Now far from home and in terrible danger, Kitsune must try to escape and find his way home with the help of an unlikely ally: the mercenary pig Buta.
Family friendly, animal protagonist laden titles about a grand adventure with plenty of pirates along the way. Animal Treasure Island is the FAR superior of the two, but fans of one will appreciate the other.
In AD 2008, mankind developed deadly weapons and eradicated most of the Earth and its people. 20 years later, a young boy named Conan and his 'grandpa', one of the last survivors of the devastation, live a peaceful life on Remnant Island. One day Conan rescues a girl on the beach named Lana and learns the true nature of the rest of the world. After Lana is kidnapped, Conan's good nature propels him into the biggest adventure of his life: to find Lana, High Harbor, Dr. Lao, and a way to crush the evil and oppressive city of Industria.
If you like Animal treasure Island you'll also like Future Boy Conan because they both have main events of the story take place at sea.
They both also involved Hayo Miyazaki.
The Character Jim is complarable to Conan.
Zorori the fox is on a quest to become a notorious villain, famous for his mischief!

From saving babies to rescuing damsels in distress, there's nothing Zorori can't accidentally help with! Join Zorori as he builds a reputation and works towards making his late mother proud.
Kaiketsu Zorori and Animal Treasure Island could have come from the same mold. Animal protagonists run rampant in both, and each has a family-friendly, fun feel. It could be a gut feeling, but just try it on for size.
When the loveable Perro was banished from the kingdom of cats (for the treacherous crime of saving a mouse!), his wanderings led him to the house of Pierre, a young lad who was mistreated by his greedy brothers. Thrown out in the cold, the duo then traveled to a great kingdom where they laid eyes on the princess Rosa, who soon would be wed to a wealthy suitor. Who best to marry her but ... the son of a poor farmer?! With Perro's help, Pierre might just stand a chance -- that is, if he can fool the royal family and defeat the evil Lucifer, who wants Rosa all for himself!
Puss in Boots and Animal Treasure Island are fun, family-friendly looks at swashbuckling classics. Animals are at the forefront of each title, and the two anime have a remarkably similar feel. If you liked one, definitely try out the other for size.
