Hong Kong Phooey Was Sublime

I loved Hong Kong Phooey.


-

From Wikipedia:

"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."
