Anyone remember The Mighty Heroes?

Post by Waterratt » Thu Sep 27, 2012 6:38 pm

This was cartoon I used to watch when I was a kid. I used to watch this all the time when I got home from school. The show was created by Ralph Bakshi for Terrytoons and only ran for 21 episodes. It's corny and campy and I still love it. Enjoy.

I vaguely remember this show, but really did not see it. I do remember this as Terrytoons' "last gasp," but I guess the real significance is in Ralph Bakshi's work. Definitely interesting. Kinda reminds me of Batfink, which came out in 1967.

Back in the '80's, when Ralph Bakshi produced "The All New Adventures Of Mighty Mouse," he brought back The Mighty Heroes in one of the episodes. They were now accountants and their company was called Man. Man, Man, Man & Man.

This brought back some fond memories. I have not seen the Mighty Heros since I was a young kid. My Brothers & I saw these shorts before the featured movie at our local theater in the very early 1970's. Wow! Diaper Man, that was so long ago! Lol!

They used to show these oldies every afternoon at Day Camp, on the days when it was too foul to go to one of the city pools to cool off. We all had fun watching these dumb clucks and the even dumber villains.

I was lucky enough to buy a bootleg DVD of these cartoons at a convention a few years back. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the theme song! Very 60's-ish, kitschy stuff. I would lo help produce a DVD of these shows!
