1 9 6 6 – 1 9 6 7
Take a group of kids, put them together, and before the day is over, they’ll inevitably form a club. The Space Kidettes were no different, except that their clubhouse was shaped like a Mercury space capsule and located in outer space.
These four kids – Countdown, Scooter, Snoopy and Jenny – and their dog, Pupstar, just wanted to hang out and explore the vastness of their universe.
Unfortunately, they were forced to spend most of their time foiling the evil plans of Captain Skyhook and his sidekick Static (pictured below), who coveted the treasure map the kids had.
The Space Kidettes were seemingly oblivious to the evil plans of Captain Skyhook, and whenever they ended up defeating him, it appeared to be by sheer luck.
It was never explained why these kids spent so much time away from their parents but it didn’t matter. The idea of floating through space with your best friends and a faithful dog was enough to make this cartoon a favourite for any kid.
