Josie and the Pussycats followed the adventures of an all-girl rock and roll group as they travelled the world playing gigs and along the way thwarted the weird diabolical plots of several megalomaniacs looking to rule the world. Josie began her career as an Archie comics character in the late 1960's, starring in her own self-titled book. The stories followed the day-to-day adventures of Josie and her girlfriend Melody. Later, the title was expanded to Josie and the Pussycats, turning Josie and Melody into a rock band, along with new friend Valerie.
Singer/guitarist Josie was the level-headed leader, drummer Melody added zaniness with her half-witted remarks and effervescent charm, and tambourinist Valerie was the brains of the group, typically saving the day with her intellect and mechanical know-how. Along with the three Pussycats were roadie (and Josie's boyfriend) Alan, band manager Alexander Cabot III, his conniving sister Alexandra, and her mischievous little cat, Sebastian. Bitter and talentless Alexandra had her eye on Alan, and constantly schemed to remove Josie from the scene so she could lead the band and have Alan all to herself. Alexander often got the band into hot water with his poorly booked tour dates and general cowardice.
Though this series only lasted for one season, the characters themselves were popular enough to get a spinoff series titled Josie and the Pussycats in Outer Space. They were also featured guest stars in The New Scooby-Doo Movies in one of three classic crossovers with Scooby-Doo and the gang in its second season.
