** "Heroes And Zeroes"--The Mighty Heroes (who have since become accountants)


Added DiffLines:

* {{Crossover}}: With WesternAnimation/TheMightyHeroes in "Heroes and Zeroes". The Heroes are older now, and have given up superheroing to become accountants, but Mighty Mouse calls them back into action one more time.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Mighty Mouse was originally called Super Mouse and had a fairly different appearance, with a different costume and noodle like limbs. In "Frankenstein's Cat", he also had a brief speaking line with a different voice which paints him as uncharacteristically aggressive, whereas in his other cartoons, he only spoke when he was singing!

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Mighty Mouse was originally called Super Mouse, though many of the early cartoons were clumsily redubbed to replace every mention of Super Mouse with Mighty Mouse, and given newer title sequences. He also had a fairly different appearance, with a different blue-and-red costume and noodle like noodle-like limbs. In "Frankenstein's Cat", he also had a brief speaking line with a different voice which paints him as uncharacteristically aggressive, whereas in his other cartoons, he only spoke when he was singing!

* FlyingBrickFlyingBrick: Though how invulnerable Mighty Mouse is varies by episode. Machine-gun bullets are shown bouncing off his chest in many shorts, but in "The Swiss Miss" the DeathTrap is that he's on a conveyer belt about to be shot.

* GenreShift: The Bakshi revival shifted the series from a straight FunnyAnimal / Superhero series to a {{Satire}} of those cartoons, among other topics contemporary to the 80's.



* TheHighQueen: Pearl is queen of the interstellar federation in the space opera movie.

to:

* TheHighQueen: In the Filmation series, Pearl is queen of the interstellar federation in the space opera movie.movie, and the episodes that it was split into.
* HumanoidFemaleAnimal: The female mice were usually far more humanoid than the male, and usually [[PantslessMalesFullyDressedFemales wore more clothes]]. There were exceptions (Pandora of "Pandora's Box" and the unnamed female mouse of "Svengali's Cat" before her makeover were HalfDressedCartoonAnimals), but they were relatively rare.



* MadeOfIron: Mighty Mouse, sure, but also Oil Can Harry. In "Triple Trouble", he gets punched into a wall, has a cast-iron stove dropped on his head, and then is shot repeatedly in the butt. All it does is annoy him (and the shooting propelled him into Pearl's window, which let him actually capture her after she'd been holding her own to that point).



* PantyShot: Seen in 1945's ''The Port Of Missing Mice'' and in the same year's ''Mighty Mouse and the Wolf''. Pearl had a couple, albeit she was wearing ankle-length pantaloons.

to:

* PantyShot: [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Sneaking these in]] was almost as much a staple of the series as beating up cats.

Seen in 1945's ''The Port Of Missing Mice'' and in the same year's ''Mighty Mouse and the Wolf''. Pearl had a couple, albeit few, like in ''Triple Trouble'' and ''The Perils of Pearl Pureheart,'' though she was usually wearing ankle-length pantaloons.



** A somewhat extended one in 1946's ''Svengali's Cat''; like with Pearl in the earlier episodes, the unnamed female mouse here is wearing ankle-length pantaloons.

* SnapBack
* SmugSuper
* SpaceOpera
* UnwillingSuspension: Happened to Pearl in "Love's Labor Won" (hanging from a clothesline by her toes) "The Perils Of Pearl Pureheart" (dangling by one foot), "Sunny Italy" (ditto), "A Swiss Miss" (hanging by her waist), and "Happy Holland" (used as Harry's marionette)

to:

* {{Slapstick}}
{{Slapstick}}: Oil Can Harry falls victim to this almost as much as he does to Mighty Mouse's fists.
* SnapBack
SnapBack: There was a complete lack of continuity between shorts. Most notably in the Oil Can Harry shorts, since each one was presented as a different final chapter of a long-running serial, starting with resolving a cliffhanger (that was never set up) and ending with Mighty Mouse saving the day.
* SmugSuper
SmugSuper: Mighty Mouse can come across as this, especially in the earlier shorts.
* SpaceOpera
SpaceOpera: The "Great Space Chase" segments of Filmation's series.
* UnwillingSuspension: Happened to Pearl in "Love's Labor Won" (hanging from a clothesline by her toes) "The Perils Of Pearl Pureheart" (dangling by one foot), "Sunny Italy" (ditto), "A Swiss Miss" (hanging by her waist), and "Happy Holland" (used as Harry's marionette)marionette).




to:

* YourSizeMayVary: A non-giant variation: In "The Magic Slipper", Cinderella (a female mouse) and the prince (a male mouse who resembles [[Creator/MarxBrothers Harpo Marx]]) are about the same size as the humans at the ball, and both are shoulder-high to the wolf who serves as the villain. But Mighty Mouse is both almost the same height as Cinderella ''and'' is only as tall as the wolf's ''knee''.

* TakeThat: "Don't Touch That Dial" is an eviscerating {{Satire}} of the abysmal state of TV cartoons in the 70's and 80's, from Creator/HannaBarbera, DiC, Filmation, Ruby Spears, and so on.

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 protegé 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.
