Did You Know?


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 »

A pleasant forgotten item.

I remember this cartoon, set in the fictional city of Goodhaven. The animation was a real riot! What was neat too, was the fact that each hero's name had something to do with their profession. Remember the animation and the strong voice that sounded out each hero's name at the beginning of the show? Strong Man was an auto mechanic, Kuckoo Man worked in a pet store (possibly a bird store?), Tornado Man was a meteorologist, Rope Man was a sailor, and Diaper Man was a baby. This was a Terrytoons cartoon. In fact, the same voice characterizations were used by the same actors in other Terrytoons cartoons. An example that immediately comes to mind is Possible Possum's voice on the Possible Possum cartoons. His voice is the same as Strong Man. Owloysius Owl's (also from Possible Possum) voice is the same as Tornado Man. But, that's part of the charm of these cartoons. It gives you the feeling that these were small productions with a few really cool minds working behind them. Does anyone remember Lariat Sam? Another Terrytoons production! Each episode was really short and done in five parts. I believe this ran on Captain Kangaroo back in the early '60's. They were hilarious!
