Another two-part Saturday morning cartoon from Hanna-Barbera. In the first part, Moby Dick is now a friendly whale, and a pet of young orphans Tom and Tub. Moby saves the two boys from the threats of sea-going villains. The second half follows the adventures of the titular Mighty Mightor. Tor is a teen-age caveman who, after helping an old hermit, received a magic club that transformed him into the super-powered Mightor. Along with his flying dinosaur pet Tog and his younger brother Li'l Rock, Mightor fought a never-ending battle against villainous stone-age baddies. Written by
[Opening narration: "Mighty Mightor"]
While on a hunting trip, Tor and his faithful companion Tog rescue an ancient hermit from a Tyrannosarus Rex. Grateful, the old man gives Tor a club which possesses great powers. Tor raises the club and he becomes Mightor, and Tog is transferred into a fire-breathing dragon. Together they become champions of good and the nemesis of evil!

The Mighty Mightor was a prehistoric human who could change into a masked superhero by raising a stick in the air and shouting "Mightor!" He was magically transformed into a being with great strength who could fly with the aid of his club. His dinosaur pet would also morph into a dragon. He'd take on a T-Rex or anything else that threatened his tribe. The program had many of the same sound effects and feel of Jonny Quest. While it may not have been higher quality animation, the mixture of a superhero, dinosaurs, cavemen, and fierce battles looked pretty cool to a 9 year old back in the 1960s and an old baseball bat was the perfect "club" to imitate The Mighty Mightor. I never could get mine to fly though.
