Hong Kong Phooey

Show Summary

Hong Kong Phooey was a Saturday morning cartoon created by Hanna-Barbera back in 1974. There were only 16 episodes that ever aired on the television network, ABC. After the show was cancelled, NBC purchased the rights to re-air the original 16 episodes from 1977 to 1979.

The show is about a janitor named Penrod "Penry" Pooch, who works along with Sarge and Rosemary at the local police station. Whenever Penry overhears a crime being committed, he "jumps" into action. Actually, it's a filing cabinet that Penry jumps into. But shortly after, out comes Hong Kong Phooey. Ready to put the criminals where they belong-- Jail!

But to get to the crime scene, he uses the Phooeymobile. This vehicle can change into anything Hong Kong Phooey needs it for (Car, boat...), with a swift "bong of the gong."

But as we know, for every great superhero, there is the superhero's trusty side-kick. And for Hong Kong Phooey, this would be Spot, a cat who can't speak, only mumbles/grumbles at everything he knows Honk Kong Phooey is doing wrong..... which is EVERYTHING! So, even though we secretly know Spot may be the smart one here... Hong Kong Phooey is the one given the credit in the end.moreless
