Set in outer space, the Space Kidettes were a group of kids who dwelled in their custom-made clubhouse. The kids possessed a treasure map which was desperately sought after by a space pirate named Captain Skyhook and his evil henchman, Static. Although the captain claimed to be evil, he only wanted the kids' map, not to harm them. Written by
Not as popular as the Jetsons, but still a fun Hanna-Barbera toon.
"The Space Kidettes: Scooter, Jenny, Countdown, Snoopy and Pupstar. And starring me, the evil Captain Skyhook and his evil pal Static!"
That's how the show opened, as the Captain himself did the opening announcement. While the Space Kidettes may not be as popular the Flintstones or say the Jetsons, it is still remembered fondly, though some may not recall the show's title name. While Space Ghost, the Herculoids and Samson & Goliath focused more on derring-do action, the Space Kidettes had a kiddie-fun quality to it. There was something for everybody - The "kids outwitting the dim-witted adults slapstick" and the slightly savvy dialogue between Captain Skyhook and Static, who really were the stars of the show. Static would always suggest some type of violent torture to get the kids to cough up their treasure map, to which the Captain would bonk him on the head and tell him "You can't do that, they're just LITTLE KIDS!"
Overall, it was a neat '60s cartoon series and like the Jetsons, it pulled you into it's space-themed environment.
