Josie and the Pussycats is an American animated television series, based upon the Archie Comics comic book series of the same name created by Dan DeCarlo.
Josie And The Pussycats 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).

    Theme Song and Opening Credits

    Theme by Denby Williams, Joseph Roland and Hoyt Curtin

    Josie and the Pussycats
    Long tails and and ears for hats
    Guitars and sharps and flats
    Neat, sweet, a groovy song
    You're invited, come along.
    Hurry, Hurry
    See ya all in Persia
    Or maybe France
    We could be India
    Or perchance
    Be with us in Bangkok
    Make no difference
    Everywhere the actions at
    We're involved with this or that
    Cone along now
    Josie and the Pussycats
    No time for purrs and pats
    Won't run when they here scat
    There where the plot begins
    Come on and watch the good guys win
    Josie and the Pussycats
    Josie and the Pussycats.
