Cartoon Production Information:


This cartoon series is based on characters from TerryToons creator Paul Houghton Terry.

This hour-long show combined Mighty Mouse, Quacula and Heckle & Jeckle. The show was cut to a half-hour for its second season in 1980.

Television audiences got their first glimpse of Mighty Mouse when his theatrical shorts were broadcast on CBS under the title Mighty Mouse Playhouse in 1955. As his name suggests, MM was one powerful rodent. Blessed with all the usual superpowers (flight, strength, etc.), he also had a fine singing voice and often crooned his way through his adventures, rescuing his girlfriend Pearl Pureheart from the clutches of Oil Can Harry.

While these theatrical cartoons aired from 1955 to 1966, it wasn't until 1979 that Mighty Mouse made his first appearance in a series created exclusively for television. In The New Adventures of Mighty Mouse and Heckle and Jeckle, the supermouse foiled his foes with his wits, not his fists.

His co-headliners, Heckle and Jeckle, were two inseparable magpies who sought to con free meals and shelter out of the upper class (who, in all honesty, presented little difficulty for the clever and mischievous birds).

The show also featured Quackula, a vampire duck who tried to frighten those who crossed his path, but who usually ended up tripping over his own webbed feet.

After three seasons, the mouse and the magpies parted ways. Mighty Mouse went on to star in the Ralph Bakshi-directed Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures in the mid-80's.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.

I would have to agree with the "other" review. However you gotta admit there's something to be said for animators that are hopped on acid.
