Trivia:
Adapted from an Archie spin-off comic, the animated version differs from the actual comic most significantly in the characters of Alexandra, Sebastian, and Alexander. In the cartoon, Alexandra and Sebastian are simply conniving and sneaky; in the comic book, Sebastian is the reincarnation of a witchcraft-practicing ancestor of the Cabots, and Alexandra can cast powerful magic spells while she is holding him. In the original Archie comic, Alex is a snide braggart who lords his wealth over everyone and sees Alan M. as his rival for Josie's attention. In the animated series, Alex is a meek coward who brags much more about the band's talent than his wealth. The animated series' Alex also seems to have no romantic feelings toward Josie.See more »

FAQ

What was the origin of "Josie and the Pussycats"

Josie was "all that" and still is..., 8 February 2003
Author: RealLiveClaude from Montreal, Canada

I rediscovered the cartoon when the 2001 movie starring Rachael Leigh Cook and Tara Reid was almost released. The show was broadcasted in a Canadian Cable Network (YTV).

I have watched it in 1972-73 and re-watching it was going into the same fun I had when I was a kid. Stories that were funny, written the "Hanna Barbera" way and with such a sense of humor. I can say here the show distanced a bit from the Archie comic book itself. For example, Alex left his arrogant ego in the comic book and becomes a coward in this one (and that voice from Casey Kasem, I burst out, this is funny ). For the rest, Alexandra with her envys of stealing Alan from Josie and give the Pussycats a "music lesson" and Melody with her everlasting ditziness makes the show...

Noticeable thing here: since the original series started when "Scooby Doo" took a break, I found that Josie and the Pussycats were patterned the same way, with same music and expressions like "meddling kids". Otherwise, the rest is fun to watch and was also a great geography course because in each show, they were in a different country. And even one of the shows did feature a chase around the world (one of the best episodes called "The Great Pussycat Chase"...).

A fun classic to be enjoyed over and over again...
