Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kids (NBC 1973-1974, Frank Welker, Mickey Dolenz)

Published

on

Consisting of four teenage undercover agents posing as a rock group, 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. Butch would get information about his missions from Mr. Socrates, a computer voice who was the boss of the World-Wide Talent Agency. Mr. Socrates would contact the bell-bottomed boys and go-go outfitted girls via a beeper on Butch’s ring.

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 groovy TV band, The Monkees.
