- Josie and the Pussycats - From Animation to Live Action


Josie and the Pussycats - From Animation to Live Action
(by digitalmediafx.com) On April 6, 2001 a live action version of the classic cartoon series Josie and the Pussycats will hit theaters nationwide. The live action movie follows the cartoon series in that Josie and the Pussycats are a band of girls that dress like cats, but spend a lot of time solving crimes and mysteries. In the movie, Josie and the Pussycats must stop an evil person from brainwashing the youth of America in an attempt to rule the world.

The animated cartoon series will be capitalizing on the live action film by the series being released to video. March 27 represents the video debut for Josie and the Pussycats with two videos, "The Melody Memory Mix-Up" and "Chile Today, Hot Tamale!", both priced at $14.95 SRP. Each exclusive-to-video releases from Warner Home Video contains four episodes, providing over two hours of crime-busting action and groovin' tunes.

The original Josie and the Pussycats cartoon series premiered after its debut as a popular comic book from the widely known Archie comic book series (over 60 Josie and the Pussycats issues have been released). Cartoon Network re-aired the original series from 1998-1999 and episodes are now currently airing in over two million homes on Cartoon Network's new cable network Boomerangtv. Kid Rhino is releasing an all-new Josie and the Pussycats CD featuring classic songs from the original series in Summer 2001.
