Which episodes of Detective Conan are canonical to the manga?

After watching the first ~20 episodes, I get the feeling that there are quite a lot of non-canon material so far.

    Could you maybe format the data from the site into the answer and cite it as a source? if the site ever where to go down the answer atleast will still be valid :) – Dimitri mx Oct 8 '14 at 19:27
  • For me this answer is gold, but is not what the question is asking, since "canonical to the manga" is not "essential [...] in the storyline". I was looking for your answer though – Eloi Navarro Jan 3 '18 at 11:10

    @Dimitrimx Nice prediction. The site went down. I suggested a wayback machine link. web.archive.org/web/20160305005028/http://members.shaw.ca/… – LateralTerminal Jan 18 '18 at 20:49
