Trivia

A viewer notified media watchdog Reverend Donald Wildmon that, in one episode of this series, it looks like Mighty Mouse reaches into a pocket and snorts cocaine from his hand to regain his strength. Wildmon was disbelieving at first, but after investigating the episode and learning of producer Ralph Bakshi's background (e.g., directing the adult cartoon Fritz The Cat), alerted the media that this may have been intentional. Given the numerous other instances of risque humor and adult jokes in this series, a drug reference wouldn't be out of the question. Bakshi denies it to this day, maintaining that Mighty Mouse was merely smelling some crushed flowers and that the white jet leading from his hand to his nose was merely a cartoon "smell line" moving super-fast from the mighty inhale. The episode was immediately pulled from the rotation so that no one would see it. See more »

This really played better in 1987...
13 August 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Out of a sense of nostalgia, I decided to rent a DVD of this cartoon series. I remembered when "Mighty Mouse, the New Adventures" premiered back in 1987. Compared to the rest of the cartoons of the day, it was terrific. This Ralph Bakshi production was clever at times and was filled with sarcasm and as a result, adults could even enjoy it. But, I also noticed as I watched the show that by the mid-1990s, LOTS of more clever and more sarcastic cartoons had come along and were simply better. So, while "Mighty Mouse, the New Adventures" looked great when it came out (and it was ahead of its time), compared to later shows like "Animaniacs", "Pinky & the Brain" and "Time Squad", this 1987 show comes up lacking in most every way--particularly when it comes to the quality of the animation--which is awfully poor. Not a bad show but certainly not as good as my memory thought it was--probably because 1987-88 was just before cartoons in the US became rejuvenated with a much, much higher quality standard. Worth seeing but not at all a must-see.
