    Hong Kong Phooey was very much a product of its time, and as sad as it is to say, it hasn't aged all that well. When the show was broadcast, kung fu was hot. Bruce Lee was everywhere, Kung Fu was a prime time television hit, and martial arts madness had exploded in North America. Hanna Barbera figured that they could capitalize on this fad, and hence, Hong Kong Phooey was born. For those unfamiliar with the series or the lead character after which the show was named, the show focuses on Penrod Pooch, a dog who works as a janitor at the police department. Everyone thinks he's a bit of a dope, and that's not too far from the truth, but when danger rears its ugly head Penrod leaps into the nearest filing cabinet and emerges as Hong Kong Phooey, kung fu superhero. The only two people who work at the police station are Rosemary, the secretary in the insanely short skirt, and Sergeant Flint, a bumbling, obese cop with weird little arms and a huge torso. When crime occurs, Hong Kong Phooey somehow manages to bumble his way to the finish line ahead of everyone else using one of his patented moves which he reads out of a book before trying and so, despite the fact that Flint thinks Pooch is a fool, he loves Hong Kong Phooey for helping keep the city safe. While all this is going on, there's a big fat cat named Spot (who is actually striped) who observes and sometimes helps our hero from time to time.

    I have this love for old cartoons. This is one of my favorites because I love the martial arts as well as the animated arts. Love the opening theme song too! Great stories of the Great Hong Kong Phooey and his sidekick, Spot the Cat. Hilarious to me! I loved watching this as a child and I still love it now.
