Josie and the Pussycats cast reunionDuring the late 1960s, Filmation was having incredible success with The Archie Show on CBS. Not only was the TV series very popular but one of the animated show’s songs, “Sugar, Sugar,” hit the top spot on the Billboard charts.

They centered the stories around the girls’ band, added mysteries (ala Scooby-Doo, Where are You!), and were on their way.

Josie and the Pussycats debuted on September 12, 1970 on CBS. The animated show centers around six young people.
