The Pussycat Scat



Last Friday, Donna and I saw Jackie Joseph walking around at a TV Industry event and I informed DL "that's Audrey from Corman's Little Shop of Horrors and 'Melody' from Josie & The Pussycats." We heard her giggle to the folks in front of us and got a bit of that old Melody charm. I so wanted to call her a "bubble head" in my best bitchy Alexandra (Sherry Alberoni) voice - or ask her to leave my outgoing cel phone message, but I didn't. These people are superstars to me. They taught me how to run from villains to a pop beat - and for that I will be forever grateful. Did you know that if you and your friends stop, freeze and pose like a statue - the bad guys will think you ARE a statue and just run past you? It's true.

Ps - The cartoon's Josie voice was done by Janet Waldo (she played the annoying teen spaz who loved Ricky Ricardo on I Love Lucy. Her voice grates on me. She was also frantic teen Judy Jetson).

The singers for J&PCs: Cathy Dougher (Josie) and Patrice Holloway (Valerie) and Cherie Moor aka Cheryl Ladd (Melody). Holloway actually did most of the heavy lifting on the vocals. Thanks to Rhino Records I can listen to their hits as I drive around town.

"Voodoo" is our favorite!
I know, I begged PZ to approach Jackie, saying, "We'd make her day!" but we didn't.
