Trivia

The episode "Mighty's Benefit Plan" features a singing group called Elwy and the Tree Weasles, an obvious lampoon of Alvin and the Chipmunks. Their creator, Ross Bagdasarian, was unflatteringly represented by the character Sandy Bottomfeeder. Ralph Bakshi used to work with Bagdasarian and did not get along with him. The constant appearance of cheerios coming out of Sandy's mouth is a reference to Honey Nut Cheerios and their aggressive promotion of The Chipmunk Adventure movie of the 80's. See more »

I honestly loved it because as a kid, I was always wise beyond my years. So most of the jokes and connotations were over the heads of 90% of their target audience- but they made ME laugh.... When I look at Cartoons on Adult Swim and Cartoon Network now its almost like they can't be funny without taking the adult humor to an extremely vile and offensive level. Either that or they'll throw in a gay undertone and that's not really a paradigm that I want my children to follow or think that it is funny or cute. This incarnation of Mighty Mouse pushed the envelope and made you forget about the golden age image by making it into a parody of the innocent age. IT WAS ORIGINAL. Not some cheesy retread of an old series. I personally didn't like the old school version anyway. I thought it was non-innovative like "Anybody can take the framework of Superman and project it onto a Mouse"

I liked the characters, supporting cast and villains on the new adventures. I also liked how they threw Cosmic Cow in the mix and made him an extremely wacky anti-hero. It was extremely creative.

In my opinion this cartoon should be re-aired on Adult Swim to see if people catch onto it in this era. Kids are into that stuff nowadays. But Saturday morning definitely wasn't an appropriate slot for it back then. That is probably why they pulled the plug on it so quickly.
