Hong Kong Phooey Cartoon

 

Who is this super hero?
Sarge? No.
Rosemary, the telephone operator? No.
Penry, the mild-mannered janitor? Could Be!
Hong Kong Phooey, Number One Superguy

He’s got style…
He’s got style, a groovy style
And a car that just won’t stop.
When the going gets rough he’s super tough
With the Hong Kong Phooey Chop! Heeyaah!
Hong Kong Phooey, Number-one Super Guy
Hong Kong Phooey
Quicker than the human eye
Hong Kong Phooey, Fanriffic!
