Centered on a girl band with a knack for ending up in the middle of a mystery, Josie and the Pussycats is a 1970 Saturday Hanna-Barbera television cartoon series featuring Josie, a character conceived and drawn by "Archie" Comic legend Dan DeCarlo, his complete 16-episode series features band members Josie, Melody, and Valerie and their entourage Alan, Alexander, Alexandra, and cat Sebastian as they travel the world from one gig to another. Like the Scooby-Doo gang, Josie and her friends invariably find themselves involved in some kind of mystery at every stop. Whether it's saving a fleet of ships from a captain set on avenging his great grandfather, investigating alien invaders with an insatiable hunger for diamonds, or stopping a crazed scientist from controlling the world's weather with a nuclear powered weather machine, lead singer Josie, clever Valerie, and ditzy Melody can be counted upon to combine forces with Josie's boyfriend Alan, the cowardly Alexander, the self-absorbed and scheming Alexandra, and the snickering cat Sebastian to investigate and solve the mystery just in time to don their leopard leotards and deliver a great show. Josie and the Pussycats features the groovy music of a brief-lived 1970 girl pop band of the same name throughout the chase scenes of each show and has the honor of being the first cartoon series to regularly feature a black character (though it beat The Harlem Globetrotters by only half an hour). An interesting 22-minute bonus profile of Dan DeCarlo features extensive interviews with great Marvel cartoonist Stan Lee (Spiderman, Fantastic Four), writer Mark Evanier, cartoonist Scott Shaw, "Archie" chairman and publisher Michael Silberkleit, writer and producer Paul Dini, and a host of others who touch upon everything from this master cartoonist's real-life inspiration for Josie to his influence on future cartoonists and animators, sense of humor, and very distinctive style. (Ages 5 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

3.0 out of 5 stars Kind of disappointed.... September 21, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love 'Josie and the Pussycats.' I threw out my old VHSs filled with a lot of the episodes when Cartoon Network use to have marathons of it, anxious for the DVD set.

When I got it, I put it in and was sorely disappointed. On a semi-big screen TV, you'll quickly notice "dirt" galore all over the episodes. This is bad because Josie ATP is a brightly-colored cartoon (unlike the darker Scooby Doo) so the dust, dirt and lines are instantly visible. Another big thing that urks me is there is NO LAUGH TRACK ANYMORE. WHY? Well people all over the internet who sneer at the laugh track, enjoy the awkward pauses where the laughs use to be! And the packaging...it's hard to get the DVDs out! Who's the genius that designed this??

I'm glad I only paid 20 dollars, although I would have probably been better off buying bootlegs on the internet or something. Although it's great to see Josie and the gang, and a nice tribute to poor Dan DeCarlo, this DVD set is surprisingly disappointing. 3 stars because they actually gave Josie a DVD set...but they could've done a lot better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pussycats Rule November 16, 2007
Format:DVD
Josie and the Pussycats were like the Beatles or the Monkees. A girlband who goes on madcap adventures, without really trying. This trio of ladies were stereo types, but it worked so well

This Hanna Barbara series retreaded tracks left by the Beatles (in Help! and Hard Days Night) and the Monkees (The Monkees: Season 1). What makes this work is the animated adventures. Some of the humor could only be done in animation...and it worked. This 70's show paved the way for the animated adventures of the (musical) Hardy Boys, The Partridge Family 2020, The Jackson Five and The Osmonds (all not available at this time on DVD)

The show had great animated voice talent. Janet Waldo (the voice of Judy Jetson and Penelope Pitstop) did the voice of Josie. Jackie Joseph did the voice of the lame brain Melody. Barbara Pariot did the voice of Val. Radio DJ and the voice of Shaggy from Scooby Doo Casey Kasem did the voice of their manager of Alex Cabot, the band's manager.

Only 16 episodes were done of this series, but for Hanna Barbera fans these cartoons are golden oldies. They are still great work that could run on Saturday morning TV again or Cartoon Network today..so why arent they

I have a question for those at Warner Brothers DVD animation..when are you releasing the Josie and the Pussycats in Outer Space?

5.0 out of 5 stars Long Tails and Ears for Hats July 1, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
With its catchy theme song, likeable characters and funny plotlines, "Josie and the Pussycats" was one of the best Hanna-Barbera Series ever produced for Saturday Morning television.

Its release on DVD sparks many a memory of Saturday mornings spent in my pajamas as a six year old, enjoying Alpha Bits or Fruit Loops cereal while partaking of the broadcast fare. "Josie and the Pussycats" was a very important part of that ritual. My memories of the show are so vivid that I even remember the "In the Know" segments sandwiched between programs that featured the cast of "Josie" presenting light news features. If memory serves "In The Know" presaged "In The News" which ran for years on CBS Saturday Mornings.

Watching re-runs on Boomerang, I am amazed at how well the show holds up and the 'chase' songs were consistently good. Sure the plots were almost interchangeable, but, so what? The shows were fast paced, hilarious, and to borrow a lyric from the theme, we were invited to "c'mon watch the good guys win."

Unfortunately, this great cartoon premise lasted only a season before producers made the stupid decision to place the characters in Outer Space and for a show with far out plots, this premise was too way-out.

Can't wait to view the original adventures of Josie, Valerie, Melody, Alan, Alexander , Alexandra and Sebastian the Cat with my kids for another generation of enjoyment.

By J. Rose
Format:DVD
JOSIE AND THE PUSSYCATS returns to your screen in this new DVD set, bringing you the complete Hanna-Barbera series about the misadventures of an all-girl rock band and their entourage.

This show is not an original production of Hanna-Barbera (as some have mistakenly believed); instead it grew from Don DeCarlo's comic strip JOSIE, created for Archie Comics. In the wake of Filmation's successful ARCHIE SHOW, HB attempted to create their own teen-rock-band show, which wound up being SCOOBY-DOO, WHERE ARE YOU? However, HB still wanted their own version of the Archies and finally went to the source, securing the JOSIE property from Archie Comics for development. The resulting production detailed the escapades of sweet-natured guitarist/bandleader Josie (Janet Waldo), level-headed, inventive tambourinist Valerie (Barbara Pariot), happy-go-lucky, impossibly dumb drummer Melody (Jackie Joseph), stalwart roadie Alan (Jerry Dexter), cowardly braggart and manager Alexander Cabot III (Casey Kasem, in a variant of his Shaggy character), and his vicious sister Alexandra Cabot (Sherri Alberoni), who continuously schemes to gain Alan as a boyfriend and take control of the Pussycats, sometimes with the aid of mischievous and occasionally faithless cat/band mascot Sebastian (Don Messick). Invariably, the gang ran afoul of a villain in the midst of world takeover; after a series of misunderstandings, chases, songs, and general slapstick, the villain was thwarted and Josie and Co. lived to play another gig.

Many have muttered about JATP's similarities to SCOOBY-DOO (in fact, some of the same score music can be heard in these episodes).
