''Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kids'' was a Saturday morning cartoon produced by HannaBarbera Productions in 1973 for Creator/{{NBC}}. Similar to both ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooWhereAreYou'' and ''JosieAndThePussycats'', the show depicted the adventures of a teenybopper rock group, led by heartthrob Cassidy, who, while eluding fans, worked undercover with his bandmates as a team of teenage crime fighters (Butch, Merilee, Stephanie, Wally, and Wally's dog [[Music/ElvisPresley Elvis]]), solving mysteries and apprehending criminals.

The teen musical sleuths were advised by a supercomputer named Mr. Creator/{{Socrates}}, who, strangely enough, was highly allergic to the fleabag Elvis. So when the group visited Mr. Socrates for their latest assignment, Elvis was always made to stay outside the lair. But in each episode, either Elvis would find his own way in, or Wally, forgetting Mr. Socrates' allergy, would for one reason or another bring Elvis into the lair. Either way, Elvis' presence would cause the supercomputer to violently sneeze, blowing the group out of the lair and off to their assignment (in one episode the mere mention of Elvis' name aggravated Mr. Socrates' allergy!).

Cassidy (designated as "Sundance 1") wore a special ring with a hidden communicator to keep in contact with Mr. Socrates from afar. When they performed their music, Butch sang and played lead guitar, Merilee played tambourine, Stephanie was on bass guitar and Wally was the drummer.

The series title is a word-play on the title of the unrelated 1969 film ''ButchCassidyAndTheSundanceKid''.

Micky Dolenz, formerly the drummer and most commonly used singer of Music/TheMonkees, provided the voice of Wally, drummer for The Sundance Kids.
