Frank Sinatra and daughter Nancy record their hit single “Somethin’ Stupid,” 1967.
On September 12, 1970, Josie and the Pussycats premiered on CBS-TV, one of several cool cartoon shows that I watched that year. Josie and the gang were characters of Archie Comics, brought to animation by Hanna-Barbera Studios. Between The Archies, Josie, and Sabrina the Teenage Witch, the years 1968 through 1970 were the very best in Saturday morning entertainment—at least for me!
The “real-life” Josie and the Pussycats, c. 1970. These ladies provided the singing voices for the animated group. L-R: Cathy Dougher (aka Kathleen Dougherty) as Josie; Cherie Moor (aka Cheryl Ladd) as Melody; and Patrice Holloway as Valerie.
