One of My Favorite Childhood Spaceships? The Josie’s and the Pussycats Spaceship

I am not sure what it was called, besides maybe Josie’s Spaceship, but I loved this ship as a kid. Why? I have no idea, but I think its attraction to me lies in its simplicity. Sadly the adventures of Josie in pals in space did not last long, so we did not get much info on the ship. It was supposedly made by NASA, but it had not markings and from the looks of them controlling the thing, it was dead simple, requiring only two levers to control.

Here you see it on the launchpad:

and here is a real treat posted by Christopher Cummings on Flickr, a Josie’s spaceship model sheet.
