Did You Know?


The episode "Mighty's Benefit Plan" features a singing group called Elwy and the Tree Weasles, an obvious lampoon of Alvin and the Chipmunks. Their creator, Ross Bagdasarian, was unflatteringly represented by the character Sandy Bottomfeeder. Ralph Bakshi used to work with Bagdasarian and did not get along with him. The constant appearance of cheerios coming out of Sandy's mouth is a reference to Honey Nut Cheerios and their aggressive promotion of The Chipmunk Adventure movie of the 80's. See more »

Hated it.
7 March 2004 | by ultramatt2000-1See all my reviews

Welcome to "Matthew Rants" Since the DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS review can't come. My brother liked it, but didn't. Mighty Mouse the world's most loveable cartoon character, ruined! His adventures were wacky. Ultra wacky. As a child I like the old cartoons of the 40's. I saw this new one in 1989. I never understood it. I saw one episode where Mighty Mouse fought a witch and who lived in a pumpkin. It was messed up. The hat talks, pants talks. It was like a messed up LIDSVILLE. And of course, Might Mouse fighting the pumpkin-like beast was spoofing KING KONG. And speaking of old movies, there is one episode where Scrappy and Mighty Mouse go back in time, and see a spoof of prehistory. Where you see some creatures that are a combo between a cat and a dinosaur. A lot of episodes I saw were messed up! The only good episode I saw where Scrappy is getting chased, and he hides in a movie theatre, and sees old Mighty Mouse cartoons. I was glad to see it. I was so happy to see the old ones. But alas, the sweet age is over, and the wacky age is in! At the time I saw this cartoon. I began hating SESAME STREET, because it was too wacky, beginning with Ernie plucking off Bert's nose. Eewwww! What, SESAME STREET turns Hershel Gordon Lewis on us? I found Elmo annoying. Anyway, the drawings in this poor show spawned a whole range of wacky cartoons, like REN & STIMPY (1991-1995), DEXTER'S LABORATORY (1996-2003), FARLY ODDPARENTS (2001-onwards), etc. Bottom line: I liked the old cartoon series. You can say I'm a fuddy duddy.
