''The Mighty Heroes'' is a lighthearted SuperHero {{Parody}} cartoon that originally aired on Creator/{{CBS}} in 1966, reportedly created on-the-spot by animator Creator/RalphBakshi. The show featured a team of five misfit heroes -- Strong Man, Cuckoo Man, Diaper Man, Rope Man and Tornado Man -- protectors of the city of Good Haven. The show featured a fair amount of skewering of superhero tropes, and is seen by some as a precursor to Bakshi's work on ''[[WesternAnimation/MightyMouseTheNewAdventures Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures]]'' (where an aged group of Mighty Heroes guest star in one episode).

* StrictlyFormula: A new villain goes on a crime spreed, the city calls in the Mighty Heroes, who get in each other's way and are easily defeated. The villain puts them in a death trap, they escape, then the MH come back as a perfectly unified group and beat the tar out of the now completely useless villain and his mooks.

* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: Strong Man could fly and was super strong; Diaper Man could fly and was pretty strong himself, and had a nigh-magical milk bottle; Tornado Man could fly and create whirlwinds; Rope Man could fly and use his body as a rope of arbitrary length; Cuckoo Man could fly ... ''and do nothing else''.

* [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass Crouching Morons, Hidden Badasses]]: Given how ineffective the heroes are in the first half of each episode, you'd be forgiven for forgetting that they ''always'' save the day in the end.
