Josie & The Pussycats

I feel like this series does not get nearly enough attention. While Archie is still publishing the series (the “manga” Josie was terrible though), and Boomerang is still showing the cartoon, this series is being vastly under-used. Here we have an all girls pop-rock band that goes on amazing adventures and shows that girls can be amazing, yet for some reason no one else thinks this is a good marketing device. Instead we still have Barbie (who is in her own right pretty fucking awesome), and Dora. I hate Dora. It’s cool that she’s teaching kids Spanish, but frankly she sucks.

While there was a (terrible) movie released nearly 10 years, the series has since become a blip on the radar. The series is a fun read, and the cartoons are fun to watch. Just imagine what kind of toys could be made with Josie & The Pussycats;

Josie Rock band
Really awesome dress up stuff
Music sheets
Pretend instruments

Hell, there could be a traveling show akin to what Dora and Disney on Ice does. The possibilities are endless, and the grooviest thing about this series? It can appeal to a very wide age range, and Josie (much like every other Archie character) can be re-made to fit in with the times. She’s a great character, and the rest of the cast is amazing too. Here’s hoping in 2010 we see more girl power from them.

    I LOVED Josie and the Pussycats when I was little and, sad though it may be, I still love it now. In my opinion it’s just as good as things like Scooby-Doo… But with better songs! I used to love the songs when I was little but when I think about it the storylines were inventive too!
    Aww, thanks for posting this!
