From the depraved mind of Ralph Bakshi and the animation genius of John Kricfalusi, this cartoon remains to be one of the funniest cartoons of the 80's. It featured a satirical approach to the superhero genre blending wackiness, weirdness and often social parody.
This is THE cartoon that was forcibly removed from the airways because an overzealous Kentucky soccer mom accused Mighty Mouse of snorting cocaine (when in reality the morally conscious mouse was simply stopping to smell the flowers).
This cartoon is wild! Classic Mighty Mouse characters such as girlfriend Pearl Pureheart and villain Oil Can Harry return, but not quite as we remember them. The series introduces newcomers Bat-Bat (A take on the Dark Knight), Tick the Bug Wonder, The Cow and Petey Pate.
The set will include all 19 episodes of the series, and if the Ren & Stimpy box sets are any indication then we can likely expect production art galore and interviews with Ralph, John K. and other writers/animators from the show.
From the creators of Ren & Stimpy comes the return of a fantastically funny animated series! Don't Miss it!
It's an amazing show. The writing is brilliant and it is full of visual gags that were lacking in most Saturday Morning tripe at that time. The animation renaissance of the early 1990s can be traced directly to this show. It shows clearly the origins of the Spumco style .. Here are the strange, retro/cubist character and background designs, the bizarre story and gag ideas, the emphasis on emoting rather than on constant frenetic movement, and the use of voices that don't sound like typical cartoon characters. Although the production values on "Mighty Mouse" were lower than on "Ren and Stimpy," I think the best episodes of "Mighty Mouse" are better than anything John K did in his later career. The stories are more coherent and rely less on "gross-out" gags and psychotic freak-outs. John K probably hates this expression, but "Mighty Mouse" is a lot more relatable than "Ren and Stimpy."
However, not all the episodes were good. Some of them are atrociously written, with no clear sense of plot direction or motivation. Some of them don't make sense, and some of them are actually painful to watch. "Witch Tricks," the second half of episode 2, is the first bad one, followed by "Catastrophe Cat" in episode 4.Read more ›
