The Harlem Globetrotters (Bobby Joe, Pabs, J.C. (Gip), Geese, Meadowlark and Curly Neal) travelled the world playing basketball with their funny antics and wild gameplay.

Granny (Nancy Wible) drove the team bus and Dribbles the dog (Frank Welker) accompanied the group as a team mascot.

This series was the first American Saturday morning cartoon to feature a predominately African-American cast of principal characters.

Scatman Crothers was also the voice of Hong Kong Phooey in 1974 and later starred in The Shining (1980).
