Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures is a 1987 revival of the Mighty Mouse cartoon character. Produced by Ralph Bakshi and Terrytoons, it aired on CBS on Saturday mornings from fall 1987 through the 1988–89 season. The show was considered revolutionary at the time, and, along with 1988’s Who Framed Roger Rabbit, inspired a wave of animated shows that were much zanier than those that had dominated children’s animation in the previous two decades.

It was a huge springboard for many cartoonists and animators who would later become famous, among them John Kricfalusi (creator of Nickelodeon’s The Ren and Stimpy Show), Bruce W. Timm (producer of Warner Bros. Batman: The Animated Series), Jim Reardon (writer for Warner Bros. Tiny Toon Adventures and Disney/Pixar’s Wall-E and director for FOX’s The Simpsons), Tom Minton (writer and producer for many Warner Bros. television cartoons, including Tiny Toons, Animaniacs).  In an episode of Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures, The Mighty Heroes had retired and become accountants with a firm called “Man, Man, Man, Man & Man.”
