Who? and the Pussycats

In Space

Scooby Meets the Pussycats

Pussycats Sell Out

Teen Titans Go!

In the Teen Titans Go! episode "Cartoon Feud," Control Freak hijacks the Teen Titans' TV and displays photos of Jonny Quest, Josie and the Pussycats (specifically of Josie, Melody, and Valerie), and Scooby-Doo, which he views as something classic the viewers at home would rather watch on Cartoon Network, but can't because the schedule is always lined up with Teen Titans Go!

Behind the scenes

In popular culture

  • In The Fairly OddParents episode "Shelf Life," Tom Swayer changes the story Jason and the Argonauts so that Jason and his Argonaut soldiers are magically changed into a music band "Jason and the Pussycats," singing a parody of the theme song to fight off a cyclops.
  • In Comedy Central's adult animated series Drawn Together, Foxxy Love, a parody of Valerie, is a former member of the all-black, all-girl band Foxxy 5. There is a reunion in "Captain Hero's Marriage Pact," which differs from a deleted scene in "Hot Tub," in which they were of different enthicities.
  • Josie and the Pussycats finally returned to Earth in The Bleepin' RC Archie Comics Special.


  • "Chapter Six: Faster, Pussycats! Kill! Kill!:" Kevin refers to the Pussycats as having long tails and ears for hats just like in the theme song.
  • "Chapter Ninety-One: The Return of the Pussycats:" The Pussycats perform part of their theme song in a benefit gig for Riverdale, cutting off before they refer to their world travels, because in this continuity they have not achieved that kind of fame.
