The Houndcats

The Houndcats Episode Guide Logo


The Houndcats took Mission: Impossible and moved it to the American West (a move already made in primetime by the short-lived The Bearcats).

Despite the title, not every member of this secret government crime fighting team was a cat. Stutz, the leader, was a dog, as was Ding-Dog (the daredevil stunt-type), and Mussel-Mutt (the strongman). Rhubarb (the electronics and gadget whiz) was a cat, as was Putty-Puss, a disguise expert billed as the "Cat of a Thousand Faces."

The group zipped around in their Stutz Bearcat, named "Sparkplug," which was always driven by Stutz. Assignments came via tape recordings, which self-destructed in a different fashion each week. Like most cartoon crime fighters, the Houndcats lacked a certain grace and skill, yet always seemed to crack the case by the end of the show.
