This series was created by Ralph Bakshi at a pitch session where Terrytoons offered their show concepts to the CBS executives only to have them all rejected. While the producers were in shock and preparing for unemployment, the network executives asked the group if there were any other concepts they could hear about. Bakshi, a junior animator who was allowed to sit in on the session provided he sat down and stay quiet, immediately piped up and improvised the concept for the Mighty Heroes series in front of the suits. The idea was accepted and Bakshi was given responsibility for directing it. See more »
If your a Gen X-er, you have to remember a group consisting of Diaperman, Strongman, Cuckoo Man, Ropeman and Tornado Man. They are "the Mighty Heroes" who messed things up during the beginning of the thirty-minute show but usually come together in some unusual ways to defeat their foes.
Created by Ralph Bakshi who later did "Spiderman" (Your Friendly Neighborhood...), "Fritz the Cat" and "Wizard". I didn't even know that he create this fantastic show from the sixties. Mr. Bakshi is a genius for that time period and has done other fantastic works besides the above mentioned shows. Hopefully one day soon they will put all the Mighty Heroes 20 episodes and other well-known shows such as "Space Ghost" and "the Herculoids" (to name a few) on dvd (so what are you guys who made these shows waiting on?).
