I used to love watching Hong Kong Phooey n the 70's when I was a kid. He was useless but adorable. Every episode he'd pause proceedings during a fight by saying "Stop everything! Let me consult my Hong Kong book of Kung Fu". He never solved anything at all, it was always sorted out by "Spot" the cat. Hong Kong Phooey's voice was provided by the wonderful Scatman Crothers (who played The chef, 'Dick Hallorann' in Kubrick's The Shining)and he also sang the theme tune.
