Hong Kong Phooey was a short-lived, but great show. Like all great cartoons, it had a great theme song. Hong Kong Phooey, #1 super-guy! What a perfect opening line.
Realistically, the animation wasn't that great. It was quite limited, in fact. But the character designs were solid and the basic premise funny.
For those not familiar Hong Kong Phooey is an anthropomorphic dog janitor who, with his cat Spot, fought crime. Hong Kong would use elaborate and ineffective karate moves to stop criminals while, behind the scenes, Spot would do something actually useful. Hong Kong never realized that it was really Spot who saved the day.
Next to the theme song, the best part was Hong Kong's voice, done by Scatman Cruthers. What a distinctive voice that man had.
Hong Kong Phooey had a good gimmick and was one of the better cartoons from the 1970s. It's theme song has been especially enduring.
