Interesting show
8 January 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Hong Kong Phooey is not my favourite of the Hanna Barbera shows, but I quite like it. It is interesting enough, and keeps me amused. It is just a shame though that the show only lasted as long as it did, it had potential to do even better than as it started off. True, one or two of the supporting characters are scrappily animated, bland or annoying, but Hong Kong Phooey is not without its charms.

The animation isn't the best looking of the Hanna Barbera cartoons, but with some nice colours and decent backgrounds it is reasonable enough. The theme tune is also quite catchy, and I also liked the simple, fun story lines and quirky, amusing one-liners. The main characters are great. Sergeant Flint is a great character, who reacts to Henry/Hong Kong Phooey. But it is the title character who makes the show work. Brilliantly voiced by Scatman Crothers, he is hugely entertaining.

Overall, interesting and worth a watch despite its limitations. 8/10 Bethany Cox
