Josie and the Pussycats

Show Summary

Welcome to the Josie and the Pussycats page on TV.com

Josie and the Pussycats followed the adventures of an all-girl rock and roll group as they traveled the world playing gigs and along the way thwarted the weird diabolical plots of several megalomaniacs looking to rule the world. Josie began as an Archie comics character in the late 1960's, starring in her own self-titled book. The stories followed the day-to-day adventures of Josie and her girlfriend Melody. Later, the title was expanded to Josie and the Pussycats, turning Josie and Melody into a rock band, along with new friend Valerie. Singer/guitarist Josie was the level-headed leader, drummer Melody added zaniness with her half-witted remarks and effervescent charm, and tambourinist Valerie was the brains of the group, typically saving the day with her intellect and mechanical know-how. Along with the three Pussycats were roadie (and Josie's boyfriend) Alan, band manager Alexander Cabot III, his conniving sister Alexandra, and her mischievous little cat, Sebastian. Bitter and talentless Alexandra had her eye on Alan, and constantly schemed to remove Josie from the scene so she could lead the band and have Alan all to herself. Alexander often got the band into hot water with his poorly booked tour dates and general cowardice. Though this series only lasted for one season from 1970-71, the characters themselves were popular enough to get a spinoff series titled Josie and the Pussycats in Outer Space which ran from 1972-73. They were also featured guest stars in The New Scooby-Doo Movies in one of three classic crossovers with Scooby-Doo and the gang in its second season.

Theme Song:

Josie and the Pussycats
Long tails and ears for hats
Guitars, and sharps and flats
Neat, sweet, a groovy song
You're invited, come along
Hurry, hurry...

See you all in Persia, or maybe France
We could be in India (Inja) or Perchance
Be with us in Bangkok
Makes no difference where the action's at
We're involved in this and that
Come along now...

Josie and the Pussycats
No time for purrs and pats
Won't run when they hear scat
They're where the plot begins
Come on, watch the good guys win

Josie and the Pussycats
Josie and the Pussycats... Yeah, yeah!

    Copy of Scooby-Doo, and other mystery shows that CN had, this show is unoriginal and a complete waste of time, i dont belive that someone watch this, but for those who like, try to find something better.



    There arent much to say about this show, just that people who made this, should had the idea that this show would be as great as Scooby-Doo is.
  • Josie, Valerie and Melody - the band Alex - their manager Alexanda and Sebastian - nasty charcters Alan - their only roadie as he won't let Alex hire anyone else because he has a huge crush on Josie.moreless

    Okay, I haven't seen this for a real long time, but from what I can remember it was really cool. I enjoyed the fact that Josie and the gang solved actual world threatening villans, unlike the bad guys in Scooby Doo, who are just there to scare some local folk. I really liked the band as well, more so because I like to think of myself as a lot like Josie - which is true. I also think that Alex is a rather funny charcter as he reminds me of Shaggy from Scooby Doo. What annoys me though is how people mix up Josie and Melody's surname. Josie's is James and Melody's is Jones, because Melody is Fred Jones (from Scooby Doo) little sister. oh, i never mentioned evil Alexanda, her cat Sebastian or Valerie and Alan - well now i have, so that's fair!!!moreless
  • A trio of female musicians and their friends travel the world, smacking down scheming villains intent on ruling the world, stealing all of the world's gold, etc.

    You can catch episodes of this series on Boomerang/Cartoon Network from time to time. I've seen all of them and the series reminds me a bit of Scooby Doo, with the characters chasing down mad scientists instead of ghost impersonators. The animation isn't the best, some of the stories have gaping plot holes and there is no such thing as logic in anything this group of kids and their opponents do. But what do you expect in a cartoon aimed at preteens? There is a lot of good music (one of the group's songs is always played over the climactic chase scene), the characters are likable (even the grouchy, jealous Alexandra), many of the jokes are actually funny, and there's plenty of mindless, fun action. Nice way to spend twenty-five minutes.moreless
  • Josie and the gang prove that ambition, stick-to-it-tiveness, and honesty can get you anywhere. This show's really wholesome and fun in an super retro, kitschy way.

    Josie and the **** is a fantasy world full of music and friendship; the charactures are mostly teenagers and the storylines are family-friendly. Their storylines take them to other countries and even other planets (eventually the show has them riding a spaceship to their gigs). Anyone who remembers Gidget, Happy Days or the Muppet Show would probably enjoy this campy ride~!
  • Neat, Sweet and GROOVY!!!!!!

    I vaguely remember seeing reruns of this show as a little kid in 1978 but years later, it became one of my all time faves. I enjoyed the music and the stories immensely. 16 episodes weren’t enough during its run in the 1970s and I thought that Hanna-Barbera should have produced more of this series and their adventures in outer space. I also praise both the series and H-B for introducing Valerie as the very first African American heroine in an animated series.
