The Adventures of Shirley Holmes Trivia

In a word play on Uncle Sherlock Holmes' evil villain "Moriarty", niece Shirley Holmes villain was named "Molly Hardy".

The Adventures of Shirley Holmes was filmed in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

Shirley's boyfriend Bo didn't do a lot of sleuthing but he was very useful in dealing with the bad guys. He was a former gang member who crossed over to the good side.

The series was set in a fictional town named Redington in Canada.

The Adventures of Shirley Holmes writer Susin Nielsen won a Gemini Award for "Best Writing in a Children's or Youth Program" in 1998 and Elizabeth Stewart won a WGC (Writers Guild of Canada) Award the same year. The show itself won one for "Best Children's or Youth Program or Series" in 1999 as did Meredith Henderson for "Best Performance in a Children's or Youth Program or Series".

The series was broad in more than eighty countries dubbed into Dutch, French, German, Italian, Norweigian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish and Turkish.

The Adventures of Shirley Holmes producer Kim Todd stated that one of the main reasons for cancelation of the show was the fact that the entire tone of it would have had to be changed due to the fact that the Cast were becoming adults. Meredith Hendersen, for example was 13-years-old when the show premiered and would have been nearly 17 at the beginning of a fifth season. They certainly weren't children any longer.
