The Mask

Show Summary

This show is based on the hit movie about a lower then regular guy who finds an enchanted mask. When he puts the mask on, he becomes a totally zany superhero who fights crime and makes a huge production of himself. He can instantaneously make his clothes change to something else, a body part change shape, pull anything out of his pockets, etc. Whenever Ipkiss is wearing the mask, there are no rules. For those who believe that comedian Jim Carrey is actually a cartoon disguised in human form, the 1995-1997 cartoon season offered abundant evidence. Three of Carrey's starring vehicles were adapted to the small screen: Dumb and Dumber, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, and The Mask. Of the three, The Mask was probably the most obvious choice for adaptation. The feature film was a digitally-enhanced human cartoon, based on the Dark Horse comic book. The animated series continued the adventures of nerdy Stanley Ipkiss, who discovered an 11th-century green mask that transformed him into an invulnerable, super-powered loony. In the cartoon, The Mask was an Edge City crime fighter, aided by girlfriend Peggy and dog Milo. Red-mo-hawked bad scientist Pretorious supplied most of the crime, while the insane Kablam added a dose of toxic mayhem. In place of Jim Carrey, who was not involved with the show, Rob Paulsen supplied the title character's voice. The switch apparently didn't bother Mask devotees, who made the show a hit in its three seasons on CBS. Category: Animation/ Comedy, Kids/ Family Description: Whenever Stanley Ipkiss, a shy young man, puts on the mysterious mask believed to be owned by the Norse god of Mischief, Loki, he turns into an uncontrollable green superhero in Edge City.
