The Legend of White Fang is a Canadian animated series based on the 1906 novel White Fang by Jack London.[1] The show centers the main dog protagonist and a young human companion, 12-year-old female Wendy Scott, in the place of the novel's male trail guide, Weedon Scott.[2]

Canada-based Cinar produced the series for the pay-TV network Family Channel, Global Television Network and TF1 in France. HBO later broadcast in the United States. Writer, journalist and popular Canadian historian, Pierre Berton, was a history consultant to the series.

Plot

12-year-old Wendy, a brave and kind girl, befriends wolf-husky mix White Fang. They share many adventures in Yukon's rugged Klondike territory during the Klondike Gold Rush where they encounter wolf packs, gold thieves, First Nations people, otters, poachers and treacherous avalanches.
