Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

This goofy cartoon is one of Hanna-Barbera's more original efforts. Phooey's oblivion and Spot's all-knowing superiority will make kids giggle and give them a sense that they, too, could have hidden powers that the grown-ups don't see. The plots are simple, although some grasp of why a "bad guy" would want to steal jewels or counterfeit money is required. There are no high-speed chases, no one is ever hurt, and nothing is ever scary, making Hong Kong Phooey fun for pretty much any kid who's interested.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
