Trivia

In the series' original opening sequence, Alexandra attempts to blow up the band... but, like Wile E. Coyote, is herself blown up. When edited for re-broadcast, this sequence, coming toward the end of the theme song, is replaced with more footage of Josie and the Pussycats dancing... but, because the sound of the explosion is part of the theme track, the explosion itself has been left intact.

The Comic Book Was Better
8 July 2003 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

When I was a kid, I used to enjoy looking at this show. However a few years after the show went off the air, I read the cartoon series, which is radically different from the television version. For instance, the comic book plays as more of a collegiate version of Archie (coincidentally, the Josie and the Pussycats comic book is published by the same company as the Archie comics) in which they are just your average girls with a rock band and they do not go all over the world fighting the wild villains as they do in the animated version of the series. However, the characters personalities are more or less the same, except for Alex. In the cartoon he is a lily livered coward, while in the comic book he is an ego-maniacal weasel much like Reggie Mantel is in the Archie series. I think I would have preferred to see that version of the show rather than this show, which plays like a combination of Scooby Doo and a juvenile version of The Avengers.
