Day 163: Mighty Mouse


Mighty Mouse is an animation superhero mouse character created by the Terrytoons studio for 20th Century Fox. Originally created as a parody of Superman, he first appeared in 1942 in a theatrical animated short entitled The Mouse of Tomorrow. The original name of the character was Super Mouse, but it was soon changed to Mighty Mouse.

During the 1980s, animator Ralph Bakshi created a new series of Mighty Mouse cartoons, entitled Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures. Its heavy satirical tone and humor makes it a collector's item even today; many collectors of older TV series seek out episodes of the Bakshi Mighty Mouse. The series was cancelled after two seasons, due to the controversy surrounding an episode in which Mighty Mouse sniffed a white powder that resembled cocaine. CBS and Bakshi denied this assertion. At first they claimed Mighty Mouse was sniffing his "lucky chunk of cheese", but later said the substance was "crushed flowers."
