The series was remade again in the late 1980's for Creator/{{CBS}}' Saturday morning cartoon block by famed animator Creator/RalphBakshi. His ''Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures'' was a highly innovative, [[ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs insane]] series that pioneered the anarchic pop-culture obsessed, [[PeripheryDemographic young adult-attracting]] style of television cartoons which flourished in the 1990's. Many of those who worked, created or had major impact on those later shows originally found writing and animation jobs for ''Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures'' including Bakshi's long time friend and protogé Creator/JohnKricfalusi, [[{{DCAU}} Bruce Timm]], [[TinyToonAdventures Jim Reardon]] and [[WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}} Tom Minton]]. Sadly, if remembered at all, it's usually for the controversy surrounding a scene in which Mighty Mouse sniffed some crushed flowers that looked a heck of a lot like cocaine. The creators contend to this day that it was unintentional, but considering how every episode seemed ever more dedicated to GettingCrapPastTheRadar, there really isn't a whole lot of plausible deniability.

A SuperHero anthropomorphic mouse saves the day, the world and his girlfriend, Pearl Pureheart. Originally one of the Creator/{{Terrytoons}} (yes, from the same fine company as WesternAnimation/HeckleAndJeckle) from TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation.

* TakeThat: "Don't Touch That Dial" is a particularly biting satire of Creator/HannaBarbera, {{Anime}} (with a hint of ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters''), the TheDarkAgeOfAnimation and television of the 1980's in general.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: played with, if not subverted, in ''The Wreck of the Hesperus''. The skipper's daughter sits down and crosses her legs, revealing her long Victorian pantalettes - not very sexy to a 20th-century viewer but likely scandalous at the time the poem takes place. Then, when the narrator reads the "And her bosom white as the hawthorn buds/That ope in the month of May" - which is taken directly from Longfellow's original poem -, she is shown ''covering'' her bosom with her hand. One way or another, the "bosom" part is cut from at least one release.

* OutOfFocus: Scrappy in later episodes. In fact, one episode, "Anatomy of a Milquetoast" (his ''only'' season 2 appearance) is one giant lampshade of this..

** In issue #10 of the Marvel comic, Pearl Pureheart boycotts the rest of the issue because of Andrew "Mice" Clay's appearance. This refers to Nora Dunne refusing to appear on SaturdayNightLive at the time due to Andrew "Dice" Clay's appearance.
