Who does that terrier think he is?

Wishbone was a kids' show, in which a dog by that name acted out classic stories that mirrored events going on in "his people's" lives. This included The Hound of the Baskervilles (first two links below)..

In an unexpected treat for Johnlockers, we get a shot at the end of Watson petting Wishone!Holmes!

And, believe it or not, they did, "A Scandal in Bohemia," which is more faithful to canon and treats Irene much more respectfully than most adaptations  - and implies Holmes has respect for her, rather than attraction.

Now, they went with a Nigel Bruce-ish Watson (portly and comical) and I personally think they should have made Wishbone Watson and had a human actor for Holmes, (when they did Don Quixote they made him Sancho). But I wish the modern Sherlock Holmes shows, especially Elementary, had done something like this: compared the cases to Sherlock Holmes, perhaps even giving the characters the last names of Holmes and Watson, without pretending that the modern characters WERE them.
