Montana Jones (モンタナ・ジョーンズ, Montana Jōnzu?) is a comedy adventure anime television series which was broadcast in Japan on NHK from April 2, 1994 through April 8, 1995. Studio Jueno (Japan) and REVER (Italy) created the 52 episode series as a joint production. Montana Jones has a similar atmosphere to Sherlock Hound, a joint of Rever and Tokyo Shinsha ten years earlier in 1984. The anthropomorphic characters in Montana Jones were big cats instead of the dogs used in Sherlock Hound. It was subsequently broadcast in the United States and in over 30 other countries.
The series takes place in the 1930s and is about the adventures of Montana Jones, who goes treasure hunting with his cousin Alfred Jones and the beautiful reporter Melissa Sone all over the world like Indiana Jones. Thereby they visit real locations and cities like the Pyramids of Giza, the Taj Mahal, Istanbul or the Easter Island. At this Lord Zero gets in the way, a rich, excentric art lover and master thief. All characters of the series are humans with lion or tiger similar heads (Furry-Anime). The example of this anime was certainly the adventure films of Indiana Jones.
