Cartoon Production Information:

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.

In this cartoon, Mighty Mouse is very wimpy-looking compared to later years. He has skinny legs, and his suit is quite different - dark brown with a red cape and shorts. And no logo on his chest!

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.
