Josie and the Pussycats, titled on-screen as Josie and the Pussy Cats, is an American animated TV series produced by Hanna-Barbera and Radio Comics, the latter an imprint of Archie Comics, for CBS' Saturday morning line-up. It ran from 1970 to 1971, airing 16 episodes.
Josie, Valerie, and Melody tour the world in their bubblegum pop band Josie and the Pussycats, which inadvertently gets them on misadventures involving megalomaniacs and twisted scientists. They are joined by their manager, Alexander, their roadie, Alan, and Alexander's sister and foil to Josie and her cat, Alexandra and Sebastian, respectively.
Despite being publicized as a real-life band with real female singers who performed real music, the series didn't really catch on, so Hanna-Barbera made the logical conclusion that the characters needed to go to space to generate more viewers, which was called--you guessed it--Josie and the Pussycats in Outer Space, which had the same amount of episodes, but didn't even last through the next year like the previous series.
