  • Details
Disguised as mild-mannered police station janitor Penrod "Penry" Pooch, Hong Kong Phooey (voiced by Scatman Crothers) keeps his ears open for criminal news. When his crime-fighting talents are needed, Penry dives into a filing cabinet and emerges as a bumbling martial arts superhero. Traveling in his Phooeymobile, the karate-chopping mutt always manages to save the day -- with a little help from his trusty sidekick cat, Spot.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that there's not too much to worry about in this classic '70s cartoon. There aren't a whole lot of lessons to learn, and female characters are stereotyped in ways typical for the original era (and rarely appear in any significant or powerful roles), but the animated violence is mild and generally goofy. Nostalgic parents can enjoy this one with their kids.

Sexual Content

Occasional lacivious views of Rosemary's legs.


Hong Kong Phooey fights crime with a remarkably low level of violence, other than the characters spinning around in a swirl of fisticuffs.


Not applicable

Social Behavior

Hong Kong Phooey never improves, realizes that he's incompetent, or credits his cat buddy for his work -- but good always wins out, and there's no real harm here. Female characters are stereotyped in ways typical to the '70s and don't have very proactive roles.
