"Mighty Max" is a cartoon about a boy who is sent a red cap one day and is told that an ancient prophecy foretold him as the "Chosen One" and that he must battle the evil forces of the world, together with Virgil, a talking fowl and Norman, Max's Viking guardian.Written by

Show was somewhat controversial for its increasingly dark toned. It featured implied character deaths and other situations deemed too dark or mature for kids. This was especially upsetting to censors as the show was based on a toy line for young children (as opposed to a toy line being created because of the show, the show existed to promote toys which already existed). The creators of the cartoon were nevertheless frustrated by the censorship issues and by the inevitable cancellation. The show was successful and critically acclaimed when it first began. See more »

One of the most underrated animated series on television
Mighty Max, based primarily upon a micro-sized toy line, was a terrific animated series which died prematurely but will always be remembered. Max, a young pre-teen, is the "Cap Bearer", a mystical warrior who is transported all over the world in order to combat evil in many forms. Along for the ride is Virgil, a Lemurian and a sentient owl, and Norman, a Nordic warrior, voiced excellently by Richard Moll. This series was well-animated and acted, and presented good storylines and memorable villains including Skullmaster, maliciously voiced by Tim Curry. The series ender was very peculiarly made, in that it ends with Max and his comrades beginning their adventures all over again, making the show seem seamless, but nonetheless sad. I was privileged to view Mighty Max on a Canadian satellite wild-feed, and taped much of the series, but true fans should petition channels such as Cartoon Network to present Mighty Max to its fans and potential viewers.
