The New Adventures of Mighty Mouse

Show Summary

The New Adventures of Mighty Mouse (actually billed as Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures) was Ralph Bakshi's revisionist version of the famous Terrytoons superhero. Taking a healthy nod from classic theatrical cartoons, Bakshi's take has stories written by the cartoonists themselves. The result is old school cartoon making, with outrageous visual hyperbole (a model sheet reads "Jim Tyer poses--use with extreme caution!") and verbal puns. Mighty Mouse has a secret identity in this series--he's Mike Mouse, a labeler at the Mouseville cannery (where Pearl Pureheart is his boss). The show features some new villains--the Cow, Petey Pate and the Glove, among them--and a sidekick, Scrappy the orphan mouse. While a critical success, Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures was never a ratings success. It ran two seasons on CBS then return in repeats on Fox in the fall of 1992. It sparked controvery in the episode "The Littlest Tramp" in that after Mighty Mouse was shown sniffing the pulverized petals of a flower that went up his nose, Rev. Donald Wildmon charged that the hero was sniffing cocaine. CBS had the scene edited in later screenings. John Kricfalusi worked on the show's first season before striking out on his own, doing the ill-fated revival of Beany & Cecil in 1988 and then Ren & Stimpy in 1991.moreless
