"Hong Kong Phooey" is a 30-minute Saturday morning animated series produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions and broadcast on ABC from September 7, 1974, to December 21, 1974. The main character, Hong Kong Phooey, is the clownishly clumsy secret identity of Penrod "Penry" Pooch, working at a police station as a "mild-mannered" janitor under the glare of Sergeant Flint, nicknamed "Sarge."

Penry disguises himself as Hong Kong Phooey by jumping into a filing cabinet despite always getting stuck (and unstuck by his pet cat Spot) and once disguised, gets equipped with the "Phooeymobile" vehicle that transforms itself into a boat, a plane, or a telephone booth depending on the circumstances by banging his gong or changes automatically whenever necessary.

He fights crime relying on his copy of "The Hong Kong Book of Kung Fu", a correspondence-course martial-arts instruction handbook. However, his successes are only either thanks to Spot, who provides a solution to the challenges, or the direct result of a comically unintended side effect of his conscious efforts. The humor of incompetence of Hong Kong Phooey is a recurring theme of each episode, and is not unlike the recurring theme in "Klondike Kat", whose successes are only thanks to unintended circumstances, not his own skills as a Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer. The background was designed by Lorraine Andrina and Richard Khim.
