In the latest installment of "What to Watch", IMDb's TV Editor Melanie McFarland chats with "Mad Men" stars Jon Hamm, January Jones, John Slattery, and series creator Matthew Weiner about the drama's extraordinary legacy, as AMC prepares to air its final seven episodes.
Josie and the gang are doing a photo shoot on a rocket ship when Alexadra, wanting to get into the spotlight, shoves Josie out of the way, causing Josie to accidentally bump into the rocket's launch control causing the rocket to take off with them on board. Throughout the series, the band along with the alien creature Bleep continuously battle aliens intent on taking over the universe as they attempt to find their way home. Written by

This cartoon was very similar to the original Josie and the Pussycats in that the group ended up on a rocket and visited various planets where there was always some type of dischord. The plot was always the same. The Pussycats would get mixed up in the trouble, be chased around by the power mad alien dictator, save the day for the planet's innocent people and do a song before blasting off to another planet where the same thing would happen. The graphics are laughable by today's standards and not much use is made of the outer space angle as the aliens always have very human qualities. As before, there was Alexandra who was always trying to win Allan M over from Josie but always only succeeded in messing things up for everyone. The only real change was the addition of a mute, blob-like alien Bleep, who became the group's mascot but who didn't really add much to the stories. Too bad they couldn't have had an episode where the Pussycats encountered the Enterprise crew of the Star Trek cartoon series which aired around the same time. Now that would have been quite a show!
