Josie and the Pussycats (formatted as Josie and the Pussy Cats in the opening titles) is an American animated television series, based upon the Archie Comics comic book series of the same name created by Dan DeCarlo. It was produced for Saturday-morning television by Hanna-Barbera Productions.
Josie and the Pussycats featured an all-girl pop music band that toured the world with their entourage, getting mixed up in strange adventures, spy capers and mysteries. On the small screen, the group consisted of level-headed lead singer/guitarist Josie McCoy, intelligent tambourinist Valerie Brown and air-headed blond drummer Melody Valentine. Other characters included their shady manager, Alexander Cabot III; his conniving sister, Alexandra; her cat, Sebastian, and hunky roadie Alan Mayberry.
Josie and her friends later appeared in an episode of The New Scooby-Doo Movies. They were also intended to join Scooby-Doo's team on Laff-A-Lympics, but licensing difficulties with Archie Comics led Hanna-Barbera to create Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels.
