Trivia / Mighty Mouse

Mighty Mouse (Super Mouse)

  • What Could Have Been: A CGI movie of Mighty Mouse, produced jointly by Paramount and Nickelodeon (which would have produced a subsequent TV series) has been in limbo for a few years now.
    • "Instant Fat," a 1964 cartoon, was storyboarded but never made.

Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures

  • Executive Meddling: Subverted, then played straight. Up until the "crushed flower controversy", CBS didn't care what Bakshi and co. produced each week.
    • 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." McDonald's took umbrage and threatened to pull its advertising if the line was not removednote . The day before the episode aired, the Bakshi studio replaced the line with a stock scream.
  • What Could Have Been: The sudden appearance of a cartoon Merv Griffin was cut out at the last moment from "Night Of The Bat-Bat." It would be used in the unedited edition of the scene in the series finale, "Mighty's Tone Poem."
