Eddie Murphy to Voice "Hong Kong Phooey"

Posted: August 10th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Eddie Murphy to Voice "Hong Kong Phooey"Submit Comment
Alcon Entertainment has announced that Eddie Murphy will voice the title character in the upcoming big screen adaptation of the 1970s Hanna-Barbera animated TV series "Hong Kong Phooey."

The property revolves around a mild-mannered dog named Penry (Murphy) who stumbles into a mystic ceremony and is accidentally granted mystic powers, including the ability to walk, talk, and do kung fu. Under the tutelage of his kung fu master, Penry dons a costume and becomes Hong Kong Phooey, and with the help of his trusting sidekick Spot the cat cleans up a rogues gallery of wacky criminals.

Alex Zamm (Tooth Fairy 2, Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2, Inspector Gadget 2) is on board to direct the live-action/CG animated film. Brett Ratner is producing.

Eddie Murphy sounds the same in EVERY animated role he has ever been in. Why use him for this role?

Trannies, pluto nash, norbert... yet another chapter in the decline of Eddie Murphy.

I'm gonna let it out: all of Hanna Barbera cartoons are awful. They sucked back then and only lasted cuz there were only a few channels therefore a lack of competition. Putting out a Hanna cartoon into a movie is due to lack of concentration.

Sure...

But who didn't want to have a 3-Way with Wilma and Betty?

This is actually one of my favorite Hanna-Barbera cartoons, and if you watched the show, then you'd agree Murphy would do the voice really well...

That is, if you wanted Hollywood to rip out the last shred of your childhood, stomp it into the ground, and piss all over the ashes. Dear sweet God, they've already ruined Yogi Bear and the Smurfs, why won't they stop?!?

@Ranger-I never did. I always imagined a three way Jane jetson and Judy jetson while Rosie the robot video tapes it.

that's terrible. What happened to Snoop Dogg??? He was lined up to do the voice a couple years ago, and he sounds just like Scatman Crothers!
