Mezco just announced its latest addition to the 5 Point action figure line! Josie and the Pussycats, the Hanna-Barbera originals, are all present, complete with a stage and instruments. Josie, Melody, and Valerie look just like they did when they gave you that weird feeling growing up. Ah, Saturday mornings were never the same after being introduced to cat women.
The $55 boxed set includes the three Pussycats, interchangeable arms, and an extra set of legs for Melody, allowing her to stand or sit behind the drums. Expect this blast from the past to ship out during the last quarter of 2023.
“Get ready to rock out! This boxed set containsthree3 figures, a range of accessories, and a retro play set diorama that recreates the Pussycats’ iconic stage! Josie and the Pussycats featured an all-girl pop band that toured the world with their entourage, getting mixed up with invariousf adventures and mysteries.”
Josie and the Pussycats come with the following accessories:
- One (1) pair of interchangeable Josie arms
- One (1) guitar
- One (1) pair of interchangeable Melody arms
- One (1) pair of interchangeable Melody legs
- One (1) drum set
- One (1) pair of interchangeable Valerie arms
- Two (2) tambourines
- Three (3) display bases
My favorite version of Josie and the gang appeared in a Cartoon Network Groovies short many years ago. It followed the Pussycats’ evolution in various music genre styles through the decades.
Mezco’s other 5 Points figures include:
Josie and the Pussycats aired in 1970 and had a 32-episode run until 1972. It premiered just one year after Scooby-Doo and continued the Hanna-Barbera formula of taking a group of young people and sending them off to solve mysteries or get into whacky hijinks.
Like Scooby-Doo, the Pussycats cast also had Shaggy (Alex) and Fred (Alan) clones. Unlike the gang who traveled around in the Mystery Machine, Josie and her band were also joined by a mean-spirited bully named Alexandra and her skunk-like cat Sebastian. Of course, the other difference was that the Pussycats sang songs.[Source: Mezco]
