Oh my god! How do you remember this? I completely forgot about Hong Kong Phooey. I'll have to check for videos. Thanks.

I watched it every Saturday. Scatman Crothers was his voice.

A saple? Yeah, I loved this show and my kids have seen it at their grandparents (who have satellite) house.

joe said...

Hahaah. I just realized now I spelled it wrong...
Yup, love them saples....

grannyann said...

Wow saples? I love them. As I well know, we seem to misspell and don't notice till we post. LOL.
Glad to see I am not the only one.

Loved it and actually watched a couple old episodes on YouTube not too long ago. If the song has not been re-done by a rock band yet, that needs to happen- though it probably has, but I'm too lazy to investigate just for a comment. ;)

joe said...

Ann: Haha. yeah, that just kind of slipped by me....

Freida: That's perfectly okay. I don't care to investigate either..

Freida and Joe,

Sublime does a cover of the HKP theme (RIP, lead singer whose name I forget). Their version is bitchin', ska-rockin', and hilarious all at the same time. It comes from the 1995 CD Saturday Morning Cartoons' Greatest Hits.

Check it out here:

Watch for the suped-up ska transition at the 2-minute mark.

(Regarding the CD, it's a must-get for our generation. You haven't lived till you've heard the Butthole Surfers do "Underdog" or the Ramones cover "Spider-Man.")

Hey I'll check it out.

Freida Bee, MD said...

FF- Maybe I'd heard of that version before, but I am sure I'd never heard of it. Thank you for the url. That was great.

Loved it, between that and Underdog, another one you have not mentioned I was stuck on tv.
