  • Good epsiodes

    A really funny epsiode-does it seem that the Pussycats finally got a really big gig--however they are in for a big unpleasent suprise.. Too bad this was the last episode of the orginal series. a link is a prmo of the show at 207939707769752939/ Interestingly Alexander is drawn more like Reggie Mantle and ALan doesnt appear quite the same as he appears. Lastly Sebastain Cat isnt shown in the promo although he does appear at 507710557961855478/. one main difference is that in the chase scene the Pussycats had a theme song as well. unlike the contemporary Scooby Do series. After this the writers had to come up with a new gimmick on the same theme-The Pussycats end up in outer Space-it only lasted for 16 epsiodes as well. The last time the Joise and the Pussycats were on TV was as them themselves gueststarring on a 1977 Scooby Do movie "The Haunted Houseboat. {Which means of Course they did get back down to earth!}. Later there was an Idea of having alexander. Melody, Alexandria and of course Sebastain Cat join the Scooby Doo team on the Laff a Olympics but it fell through. Still if it had happened ALexandria wouldnt have gotten Alan but she did turn out to be more popular then Josie!! Alexandria and LMelody would have made silly comments and Sebastain cat would have been his snickering tricky normal self as usual.moreless

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Josie: Wow-wee! How about us getting to do a gig onboard a mysterious millionaire's yacht?
      Alan: Yeah. The invitation left on our hotel mailbox said to board the Monte Carlo Queen.
      Alexandra: (speaking with a snooty English accent) Do hurry and find the yacht, Alan dear. The sun is spoiling my alabaster complexion.
      Alan: Oh, boy!

    • Melody: Are you afraid, Alex?
      Alexander: N-No, I-I'm just terrified. (Melody chuckles)
      Alexandra: Oooooh! Why do I always get stuck with a cat, and a chicken, and a giggling blonde?

    • Alexander: Follow me, girls. A little birdie tells me this is the laboratory.
      (Pushes thorugh the door and all fall down a hole on the other side)
      Alexander: Just wait 'til I get my hands on that lying birdie!

    • (After being sprayed with the old age mist)
      Melody: Oooh, am I old! I must be at least 30.
