* CreatorBacklash:
** The DVD commentary for "Mouse From Another House" describes the episodes execution as flawed; it was supposed to be a satire of pathos cartoons and origin stories, but the story was [[PoesLaw misinterpreted as a straight pathos tale instead of a humorous take on one]], and was misdirected as such, robbing it of much of its intended comedy.
** Creator/JohnKricfalusi claims [[http://johnkstuff.blogspot.com/2008/09/wonky-2.html on his blog]] the impact of the show was a mixed blessing and that it had numerous flaws from the get go.
-->''"I also drew much more emotive and exaggerated characters than anyone else at the time did, and many of my artists again misinterpreted this as meaning no-rules. So for every Bruce Timm Ken Boyer, Eddie Fitzgerald, Lynne Naylor and me there were 5 other cartoonists who looked at our stuff and decided anything-goes, as long as it's weird. I had unleashed a monster that I've rued to this day. Mighty Mouse was a mixed blessing to the cartoon business. It freed up cartoonists and brought back creativity, excitement and invention to cartoons. It also brought back story structure and characterization - in the best episodes. It reminded the whole business of what cartoons were for in the first place. It also was full of accidents, mistakes, sloppy execution and rushed work that I had no time (and not enough experience) to get under control."''

* HeyItsThatGuy: As mentioned above, the fact that Bakshi was attached to this series attracted several names that would later go on and do great things for American television animation over the next two decades.
* HeyItsThatVoice: Rodger Bumpass, who did narration on several episodes, would go on to voice [[WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters Louis Tully]], [[WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants Squidward]] and [[WesternAnimation/InvaderZim Professor Membrane]]. Dana Hill (Scrappy) was an accomplished child actress (and would later voice [[WesternAnimation/GoofTroop Max Goof]]); Creator/CharlieAdler (Bat-Bat) would see success as scores of other characters (such as Buster Bunny on ''{{Tiny Toon Adventures}}'' and T-Bone/Chance Furlong in ''SwatKats''), and Michael Pataki (The Cow) would lend his voice to [[WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow George Liquor (American)]].

** Also of note: Season 2's "Bat With A Golden Tongue" was presumed to be a make-good for the "crushed flower" scene in that it entailed Mighty Mouse's efforts to break Bat-Bat of his joke-telling addiction. Bat-Bat's final line to the viewers was "Just say no to canned laughter." For some reason, UsefulNotes/McDonalds took umbrage and threatened to pull its advertising if the line was not removed. The day before the episode aired, the Bakshi studio replaced the line with a stock scream.
** On Facebook, producer Tom Minton revealed that [=McDonald's=] objected to the line because it was an all-too-humorous parallel to then-First Lady Nancy Reagan's more serious "Just Say No To Drugs" message.

* ExecutiveMeddling: Subverted, then played straight. Until the "crushed flower controversy", the network didn't care what Bakshi and co. produced each week.
