Josie & The Pussycats follows the adventures of a rock & roll band that comes across all sorts of adventures along the way. The group consists of Josie, their guitar-playing leader; Valerie, the brilliant tamborine-player; Melody, the naive and optimistic drummer; Alan, Josie's love-interest; Alexander, the group's cowardly manager; Alexandra, Alexander's pesky sister who constantly tries to upstage Josie and be Alan's main squeeze; and of course, Sebastian, Alexandra's fiesty cat.

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.

This cartoon is great! While many people look at it as a poor man's version of Scooby Doo, this series was more urban, more hip & more fun. Prior to "Where in the world is Carmen San Diego?" this cartoon introduced me to geography and history and got me interested in learning about other places in the world. There was definitely more of an adult sense of humor and some interesting characters. The stories varied and often had a few surprises (unlike Scooby Doo). This series was good enough to spawn a spin-off series (Josie and the Pussycats in Outer Space). Unfortunately, like many spin-offs, it wasn't as good as the original. If you get a chance to see the original Josie & the Pussycats, enjoy!
