Loosely based on the CBS adventure series Mission: Impossible, it was headed by a combined team of (three) dogs and (two) cats, hence the name.
Each episode begins with the Houndcats receiving their orders from their unseen "Chief", whose message is played on an old-fashioned gramophone, player-piano or other device, parodying the tape recorder scene at the start of most episodes of Mission: Impossible. However, the words "this message will self-destruct in five seconds", always takes the Houndcats by surprise, causing them to run away from the explosion.
-The "Houndcats" were led by cool and confident cat Stutz.
-Ding Dog was his blue Civil War uniform-wearing right-hand man with bad timing and judgment. He is a Briard.
-Mussel Mutt was the muscle - a large, bulky, and ever-hungry herding dog whose eyes were almost always hidden under his hat. He is an Old English Sheepdog
-Putty Puss was a tiny cat - the disguise expert.
-Dog Rhubarb was the scientist. He wore a long coat and a large sombrero (you usually just saw his nose sticking out from under it) that hid his gadgets.
