Anyone here have copies of the Ralph Bakshi Mighty Mouse cartoons? These were done in the late 80s I believe, and Jon K. of Spumco fame was an animator on them (or worked on the stories, or something like that).

I have not tried recently to track them down on the web, but last time I tried a few years back I was unsuccessful.

Just wondering,

Hanford

Hey Hanford, I have a few episodes on an old vhs tape, in a box, in the very back of a long closet. I'll go spelunking in that closet & let you know when I find it. That show was great! If you appreciate Spumco, you'll love these too.

I love those, it sucked when they got took off the air and Mighty Mouse got banned from TV. I never saw the episode that caused it but i remember hearing that Mighty Mouse gets high and finally does it with Pearl Pureheart. From what I heard of that last episode Mighty Mouse goes up and smells a flower which makes his eyes go swirly and makes him float kind of stupified, He then spots Pearl who's dressed very sexy. Pearl gives him a wink and beckons to him with a come hither finger motion, they walk into a house in the background together and the house starts rocking around all over the place. Might Mouse then comes out with a very content look on his face smoking a cig.

I remember that cartoon. Nowadays it seems that most of the toons that populate the Cartoon Network and Nick are of the sarcastic smartass variety. This was one of the first that I can think of, so it was pretty awe inspiring and shocking, even.

My favorite thing about that cartoon was the other characters on there like Bat-Bat and teh Bug Wonder. Mighty Mouse was like Superman who was Super and a Man so it stood to reason that a mouse who was Moighty and a mouse would be called Mighty Mouse. But Batman is like a Bat but he's a man, Bat-Bat was like a Bat but he was... well, a Bat, so they called him Bat-Bat.

I like some of the lesser-powered superheros who were mighty mouse's friends. There was Mole Mom, the Sloth, and a litte dog who's name I can't recall, but I remember his super-power was the ability to "scamper".

All these guys went up against The Cow in an episode where Mighty Mouse was out of town I believe.

Bamzemo, When you come across that tape, definitely shoot me an email to let me know

Yes! I own the whole series on tape! I loved it and had a few episodes and spent much time looking on Ebay.

What I have was recorded off the TV, but it is pretty good and complete. 4 tapes. I kind of hated buying a copy of someones home videos basically, but I wanted these badly.

My favorites were The Cow, and The League of Super Rodents, and Puffy Goes Berserk and Pirates With Dirty Faces, and of course, the Tooth Fairy episode.

What I liked in these cartoons were the regular references to relish (We represent a race of super relishes from a galaxy hundreds of miles away), the regular references to Ralph himself, and the just plain odd stuff going on in the background. A fleeting glimpse of some very old cartoon character here and there. We watched these things a frame at a time to catch all the stuff. Deputy Dog telephones...

It's kind of funny to me to read you guys' half memories of the show. I may be the only one actually knows the answers. The Gas Gopher. Jay Gerbil. I cannot remember who had the Super Scamper Power though.

I still have phrases from those cartoons in my daily life. No one has any clue what they refer to but me.

Swanky,

If you told us what the phrases meant, would you have to kill us?
