Watch Josie and the Pussycats
- 1 Season
This is a fun animated TV show from the early 1970s. It is named after an all-girl pop music band that is at the center of the show. The band performs in funny leopard-print outfits, complete with tails and ears. As they tour, going from one exotic location to another, they keep getting mixed up in local mysteries and solving them. In every episode, an original song gets played over a humorous chase scene related to the mystery or adventure in question. The series is notable for being a relatively early female dominated show. It also features the first African-American female role to appear in the Saturday morning line up. The recurring characters include four women, two men, a pet cat and a pet alien. The women are bandleader Josie, her two band mates Valerie and Melody, their roadie Alan, their road manager Alexander, his evil plotting sister Alexandra, Alexandra's cat Sebastian, and Josie's fluffy pet alien Bleep. In addition to solving a mystery in every episode, much of the show revolves around the interpersonal drama amongst the main characters. For example, Alexandra and her cat Sebastian are usually plotting against the others, and Alan is the love interest of Josie.
