Did You Know?


At the time this series was developed, Ralph Bakshi had an infant son who got mad whenever Daddy had to go to work. He would throw his bottle at Bakshi as he was heading for the door. This is what gave Bakshi the inspiration for "Diaper Man, the hero who fights villains with his mighty bottle". See more »

Return of the Mighty Heroes
31 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was among my favorite cartoons when I was a child (it was in reruns in the '70s). Even in the sanitized environment of children's cartoons, Bakshi seems to have been able to let his unique style and humor come through. Still, one of my favorite memories these off-beat heroes came not from the original series at all, but from Bakshi's short-lived "Mighty Mouse, the New Adventures" (1987). One episode featured, if I remember right, "Man, Man, Man, Man & Man, Certified Public Accountants." The Mighty Heroes were persuaded to come out of retirement to fight some old nemesis. It was a great example of how the work of an intelligent artist can be realigned to appeal to different age groups without losing any of its inherent quality.
