Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Fan-rrific! Hanna-Barbera's Hong Kong Phooey was the Saturday-morning cartoon answer to the mid-'70s martial-arts craze. Mild-mannered janitor Penry (voiced by Scatman Crothers) works in the police station alongside switchboard operator Rosemary (Kathy Gori) and beleaguered Sergeant Flint (Joe E. Ross), humans who never suspect that the diligent dog is actually "America's secret weapon against crime." Never mind that Hong Kong Phooey, although armed with his trusty book of kung fu and a Bond-meets-Wacky Races Phooeymobile, wouldn't even be able to get out of his quick-change file cabinet without a well-placed blow from his loyal cat, Spot (who's striped, naturally). The public is awed by him, Rosemary has a crush on him, and villains--including the Claw, the Giggler, Goldfisher, and the Gum Drop Kid--fear him, but no one notices that Hong Kong Phooey only succeeds through his own klutziness, Spot's help, or dumb luck. The two-DVD set (one single-sided, one double-sided) include all of the series' 31 episodes, though at only 11 minutes each, two of them were shown in its half-hour time slot. There's also a retrospective documentary, a storyboard of a complete episode run side-by-side with the final version, and commentary on three episodes by some of the original team: creative producer Iwao Takamoto and layout unit manager Willie Ito, and Warner animation producer-historian Scott Jeralds. Crothers also scatted the famous theme song: "Hong Kong Phooey, Number One super guy / Hong Kong Phooey, Quicker than the human eye / Chicky-chong chicky-chong / Chicky-chocky dooky-chong / Dooky-bop chop-choppin' / Da bow-wow-wow!" Hong Kong Phooey is harmlessly entertaining, about as harmless as Hong Kong Phooey was to bad guys everywhere. --David Horiuchi

Product Description

Hong Kong Phooey, a somewhat inept super-hero and a master of kung fu and marital arts is always on alert for crime. He gets tip-offs from the police station where he works as Penrod "Penry" Pooch, the mild mannered janitor. Whenever Penry overhears a call for help he quickly dives into a filing cabinet and changes into his karate outfit and then hops into his Phooeymobile. Despite his fallings, and thanks to Spot, his cat, Hong Kong Phooey always manages to save the day. He is a beloved superhero to all who know him. These 31 classic cartoons from Hong Kong Phooey are now available for the first time ever on DVD!

5.0 out of 5 stars What's it say in your Hong Kong Book of Kung Fu? April 28, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
For many of us, Hong Kong Phooey was the last great Hanna-Barbera cartoon character when it debuted in the fall of 1974. He was a Kung Fu crime fighting dog who never could quite go off the book. He was helped by a stripped cat named Spot. He was voiced by the immortal Scatman Crothers. The great Joe E Ross played Sgt. Flint.

Now don't get confused with the claim of 31 episodes. There were only 16 half hour long episodes. Each "episode" listed below was half the show except for the final "Cowboy" adventure that was the full 30 minutes. It'll be great to have the complete collection on the shelf in time for the 32 anniversary of Hong Kong Phooey.

The episodes will be presented in Full Frame (1.33:1) video, with an English mono audio track (with subtitles in English, French and Spanish). Here's a look at the episodes:

Car Theives

Zoo Story

Iron, Head, The Robot

5.0 out of 5 stars OUTSTANDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! August 19, 2006
Format:DVD
The picture quality in these transfers is OUTSTANDING!!!!!! There are some nice extras with interviews from people who worked on the show. Just a very nice set. Only thing I did'nt like was the flipper disc, with a classic show like this I would have preferred 3 discs instead of 1 and a flipper , still this was well worth the money!!!!! A timeless classic to be enjoyed over and over. They did a great job with this DVD release!!!!! Can't say enough!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the last great HB cartoons July 9, 2007
Format:DVD
By 1974, even Hanna Barbera themselves admitted that the quality of stheir shows had gone downhill largely due to pressure from politically correct Children's TV watchdogs who wanted to sissify the cartoons into the sickeningly sweet New Zoo revue types, but I digress.

HKP was one of the last of the cartoon duo's classics.

First of all, the show was quite imaginative. A Kung Fu fighting dog janitor named Penrod Pooch in a police station who yearns to be a super hero, and his cat friend and sidekick who willingly puts up with his foolishness and resues him every time. Our man (OOPS! I mean dog) frequently refers to his "Hong Kong Book of Kung Fu" filled with bad advice that never works. If that's not creativity, tell me what is?

Secondly, brilliant voice talent. The great Scatman Crothers (who we kids of the time also knew as Louie the Garbage Man from Chico & the Man) was unbeatable as the title character. Joe E. Ross as the police sergeant and Rosemary the "Cuty whose always on the duty" added lively spark to the series.

Finally, it's just plain FUNNY! The humor is character based as opposed to bad puns. The sissy cowboy in the next to the last episode scolds his wild outlaw brothers for "messing up my crescent rolls."

Oh what a HOOT! Trust me, you and your kids will really enjoy this and this is one of those childhood pleasures that will not disappoint your memories when seeing it as an adult.

5.0 out of 5 stars Return Of The Number One Super Guy? COULD BE!!! September 27, 2006
By J. Rose
Format:DVD
Hong Kong Phooey returns to your TV screen in this latest release of classic animation from the renowned Hanna-Barbera studios. Always on top of the day's pop culture, the studio released this series (originally called KUNG FOOEY) as HB's answer to the Seventies craze of martial arts movies, Bruce Lee, and the David Carradine series KUNG FU.

Voiced by the venerable Scatman Crothers (whose enjoyment of this character shines through in every performance), Hong Kong Phooey was the alter-ego of mild-mannered janitor Penrod "Penry" Pooch, who worked at the local police station with the loud-mouthed, stress-riddled Sergeant Flint (Joe E. Ross, another great character voice) and gorgeous, chatty telephone operator Rosemary (Kathy Gori). When evil threatened, Penry sneaked away to a back room where he leaped into a file cabinet (and repeatedly got stuck) to become the champion crimefighter Hong Kong Phooey. Armed with his loyal but long-suffering cat Spot (who was striped, and thought HKP was a dolt), his trusty but ultimately non-useful Hong Kong Book Of Kung Fu, and his transforming Phooeymobile, Phooey waged a courageous if bumbling one-man war on crime.

This was one of HB's strongest mid-Seventies shows, with an unforgettable theme song (that even included a scat part, courtesy of Crothers) and a wonderful, hilarious title character whose obliviousness to his own ineptitude and complete dumb luck made for some great cartoon television. Part of Phooey's likability is due to the talented Crothers' characterization; his warm voice and good-natured delivery create a character who is sympathetic even at his most egotistical or boneheaded.
