The last theatrical Mighty Mouse cartoon. Reportedly, another one had gotten to the storyboard stage for 1966 release, but it evidently never went to cels or film.
One of three shorts produced for inclusion in CBS-TV's Mighty Mouse Playhouse.
Normally, this town would be referred to as "Mouseville," but all the signs in the cartoon say "Cheeseville."
Mighty Mouse talks a lot (more than usual) in this cartoon.
The first shot of Mighty Mouse, in which he relaxes at a resort, shows him without his cape - a rarity for Mighty Mouse cartoons.
Created by I. (Izzy) Klein in the spring of 1940, this character was originally designed as a fly. Paul Terry liked the concept, and green-lighted the project after changing the fly to a mouse called "Supermouse."
After two years on the screen, the Supermouse name was changed to Mighty Mouse. Some reports are that the threat of a lawsuit from DC Comics was behind this name change. Others insist that Terry did not want to compete against a character of the same name that an ex-TerryToons employee drew for Coo Coo Comics.
In any case, in 1944, the character's name was changed, and the Supermouse cartoons were retitled to the new name.
