Who Is This Super Hero?

We recently switched from Brighthouse to DirectTV and of the first things we did was to find the kids channels to see what we gained or lost. I flagged a few to record for use on the proverbial rainy day, and one of the ones I selected was Hong Kong Phooey, a cartoon that ran from 1974 to 1976 with the main character voice by Scatman Crothers.

For some reason (including some obvious encouragement from me) my not quite four year old daughter has been quite taken by it, and wants to watch an episode each night. When it’s time to start she’ll call for me to sit with her through the intro that she sings along with, then she says “now go away Daddy!” and watches the rest of the show like the princess she already is.

Below is the intro song which I think might make you smile, and if you end up singing it to yourself later in the day then my work here is done!

  1. that’s awesome! My 5 year old princess is infatuated by the old Scooby Doo cartoons and movies. She doesn’t want anything to do with the newer CGI stuff, but will stop everything to watch one of the classic mysteries.


  2. Ah, yes! The good old days of cartoons well before political correctness got in the way of humor or a storyline 🙂

    My kids love Scooby Doo as well, but they’re still too young for most of the classics. I’m sure we’ll have many hours of fun watching old cartoons together all too soon, though.


  3. Both like Scooby, Mario gets watched a little but doesn’t seem to have made it to the favorites list.

    Nic, I don’t rememeber Jamie, I’ll have to look for it.

    Wendy, watching the old cartoons is good fun. Good to remember when it was ok to just be entertained, fun to think that 20 or 30 years they’ll do the same with their own children (though Phooey will be long in the tooth by then!).
