    What? Was Will Smith busy?


    I say this mostly because that Scatman Crothers was the original vocie of Jazz.

    Well i've honestly never watched the show so i don't know much other than Scatman being in it.

    As far as casting goes, who would be better? Good choice. The movie will likely stink none the less, but... Murphy still got it.

    Also; 99% of Hannah Barbera properties were fucking terrible. The ideas were cool, to a degree, but the execution was generally below awful. Rose tinted spectacles, I guess.

    Hell, if they had to hire a big name actor, Sam Jackson would have been a pretty rocking choice. But I'm sure there are also tons of voice actors out there who could do a great impersonation of the original Hong Kong Phooey.

    I can agree with this for the most part. Except Hong Kong Phooey was one I really liked as a kid. I never really cared about Flinstones, Jetsons, Scooby-Doo, etc. But I guess it was only a matter of time before they finally got to the one cartoon of his that I actually liked.

    I don't get it?

    I can honestly see Eddie Murphy as Hong Kong Phooey, the rest of the movie will probably be crap.

    Pass, Eddie Murphy probably won't pull this off, he better be a mild mannered janitor who also happens to be a dog :lol

    I don't mind Eddie Murphy really, but when it comes to him doing voices, he's pretty much always Donkey from Shrek.

    Ah, has anyone ever watched Murphy's Raw? His older age, or desire for a large bank account supported by commercial appeal, has completely neutered him.

    I guess it's the ideas and not the execution that made their properties awesome.

    I still want to live in the Jetsons world.

    There's only 1 Hong Kong Phooney voice and it was Cat,,,,, something which was the same guy that voiced Jazz in G1 series.

    It was Scatman, not "Cat".
