With Alex as their manager and Alan M. as their roadie, the girls set off in their van for the hotel. Wanting to get in on the action, Alexandra and Sebastian teleport to the hotel, where Alexandra uses her magic powers to switch the secret formula with one of the Pussycats' songs.

Indexer Notes

Script identifiable as Doyle by his distinctive writing style (much sharper than the writer of the last few issues).

This issue re-introduces Sebastian the cat, who had been absent for the last few issues. It also introduces several elements that would be used in the Hanna-Barbera cartoon (which premiered the following month): Alan M. traveling with the Pussycats, Alexandra scheming to join the group, and the group fighting mad scientists and world-domination plots.

This was also the last new story for many years to feature Alexandra's magical powers, which were not used in the TV cartoon. Her powers were briefly re-introduced in the early '80s.
