The Houndcats took Mission: Impossible and moved it to the American West (a move already made in primetime by the short-lived The Bearcats).

Despite the title, not every member of this secret government crimefighting team was a cat. Stutz, the leader, was a cat, as was Puttypuss, a disguise expert billed as the "Cat of a Thousand Faces." Rhubarb (the electronics and gadget whiz) was a dog, as were Dingdong (the daredevil stunt-type) and Muscle Mutt (the strongman).

The group zipped around in their Stutz Bearcat, named "Sparkplug," which was always driven by Stutz. Assignments came via tape recordings, which self-destructed in a different fashion each week. Like most cartoon crimefighters, the Houndcats lacked a certain grace and skill, yet always seemed to crack the case by the end of the show.

They may have solved all their cases, but the real Mission: Impossible was getting better ratings, and so The Houndcats ran only one season.
