Cartoon Production Information:
In addition to Butch, the band/spy ring consisted of Harvey (the comic relief), Merilee (the level-headed blonde) and Steffy (the brunette). Elvis was the group's comical dog. The character of Harvey was voiced by Mickey Dolenz, the former drummer for another TV band, The Monkees.
This cartoon bore no relation to the similarly titled 1969 film Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, which starred Robert Redford and Paul Newman. Lawsuits were avoided simply by adding the "s" to the end of the title.
The animated Butch Cassidy actually resembled David Cassidy of The Partridge Family, and was the lead singer and guitarist of the band.
Tina Holland ("Stephanie" or "Steffy") does not show up in the production credits.
Buddy Buie is better known as being the manager (and producer/songwriter/publisher) for, among other acts, the Southern rock band Atlanta Rhythm Section, whose hit songs include "So Into You" and "Imaginary Lover."
