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 »

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.
