  • My favorite Alexandra moment!

    When Josie & The Pussycats performed "I Wanna Make You Happy" for the natives, Alexandra finds some old ancient sheet music.

    So she grabs Josie's guitar & performs that ancient Indian melody. The tribe leader knew the tune & told everybody to head for shelter! Alexandra's upset when everybody left, until she learned that she was playing a rain dance tune! FUNNY!

    • Goof: When Alex, Valerie, and Melody return to the alien hideout to rescue the others, they ditch their native disguises. Notice their arms and it seems Melody's sleeve is blue when they drop their attire.
