Pulling out the obscure cartoon character by having Josie from the Archie comics Josie and the Pussycats suing the Pussycat Dolls for name infringement. I am surprised the Pussycat Dolls have not worn leopard print outfits as a homage to Josie and the girls.
Here is some interesting facts. The Pussycat Dolls started not as a pop group but as a burlesque and dance troupe. So while the few people that know any member of the group typically can name Nicole Scherzinger, did you know that Christina Appelgate actually had a hand in starting the group along with Cincinnati’s own Carmen Electra.
And these Hollywood actresses/singers also joined in doing guest appearances:
- Charlize Theron
- Gwen Stefani
- Pamela Anderson
- Paris Hilton
- Britney Spears
- Christina Aguilera
- Dita Von Teese
- Brittany Murphy
Given a few names on the list, it is no wonder Josie and the Pussycats wanted their name back.
Oh and another $10 to charity thanks to Mark Stokes with my appearance in a recent Zombie Boy Comic. Check it out.
