"Josie and the Pussycats" - The Complete Series

by Suzanne 1/18/08

I was about 9 when this show was on, and I loved it. I was a big comic book fan already, especially of Archie comics. Josie and the Pussycats was one of the Archie comics. Even though the cartoons were not as good as the comics, I loved seeing them come to live on TV every Saturday morning. I have three older brothers, and they all collected Marvel and DC comics, but since I was much younger, and a girl, I collected Archie and other non-superhero comics (although I read theirs as well).

The TV show was sort of a rip-off of the Scooby Doo cartoons. They went around getting into adventures like the Scooby gang. Casey Kasem was one of the voices, just like in Scooby. He played their manager, Alex. Alex's sister, Alexandra, was a lot like Veronica in the Archie comics. Instead of a dog, they had a cat.

Josie and the Pussycats includes the redhead Josie, the dumb blonde Melody (voiced by Cheryl Ladd, and the black girl Valerie. These were The Pussycats, the girl band. Alexandra was not in the band, but she was the brunette. They also had a guy named Alan that played with them and was sort of Josie's boyfriend. Alexandra wanted Alan for herself, so in that way they were similar to Betty and Veronica fighting over Archie.

It was not a great show, yet still I loved it, and the music, and I'm sure I was not the only girl who did love it. So it's great that it finally came out on DVD!!

There is only one feature, about the artist, Dan DeCarlo, who drew the comics and cartoons. I would have preferred to hear more about the TV show itself and how it came about, and who was involved with it, but only a little bit is mentioned about the show. It would also have been nice to hear something about the movie. I guess since Mr. DeCarlo is deceased, they wanted to pay tribute to him. I did enjoy watching the feature, since I am a fan of the Archie comics as well. I was surprised to learn that Josie was the name of his wife!

Josie was a good female character to have back then because there were not many female fictional people for girls to enjoy watching, either in comics, movies, or TV. It was pretty much Josie, Supergirl, and Police Woman back in the early 70's!

Kids will probably enjoy this set, as well as people my age who enjoyed it growing up. The one feature is really interesting for any fan of Archie or Josie comics.
