Presenting Your Next Hybrid Cartoon Adaptation: ‘Hong Kong Phooey’
  |  @   |  

Alvin and the Chipmunks. Underdog. Garfield. These are just a few of the classic cartoons that we’ve all grown up with and have since been turned into live-action/CGI hybrid movies. Now comes word of the next cartoon character to get the dreaded treatment: Hong Kong Phooey.

Hong Kong Phooey is a Hanna-Barbera ‘toon about a dog named Penrod Pooch, a janitor at the local police station who does the superhero thing — turning into Hong Kong Phooey and fighting evil-doers with his sidekick cat, Spot. Phooey never really successfully brings any justice, usually foiling criminal plans by accident or with the assistance of the much more-skilled Spot.

There may be one saving grace here. David Goodman has been hired to write the script, and he’s been a producer and writer on Seth MacFarlane’s Family Guy, which obviously means the guy could potentially have some great humor in his work. Could this mean that Hong Kong Phooey may just actually be funny enough to enjoy?

Andrew Kosove and Andrew Johnson of Alcon Entertainment are producing Hong Kong Phooey along with Rat Entertainment.
