The Mighty Heroes

The Mighty Heroes was an animated television series created by Ralph Bakshi for the Terrytoons company. The original show debuted on CBS, on October 29, 1966, ran for 1 season with 20 episodes; the stories took place in Good Haven, a fictitious city, continually beset by various supervillains. When trouble occurred, the city launched a massive fireworks display to summon a quintet of high-flying superheroes into action -- Strong Man, Rope Man, Tornado Man, Cuckoo Man and Diaper Man. In Act 1 of each episode, the team members were portrayed as accident-prone bunglers. A typical occurrence had them in combat hopelessly tangled together offering each other stock apologies while falling en masse until they were captured by the villain. In Act 2, having escaped the villain's deathtrap in the cliffhanger, the team always managed to regroup and fight with proper coordination to win the day; the cartoons appeared as a segment of the long-running Mighty Mouse Playhouse during the 1966-67 season, renamed Mighty Mouse and The Mighty Heroes in recognition of the new segment.

Some weeks during the network run, two complete Mighty Heroes segments would open and close the show with a classic Mighty Mouse cartoon in-between. In other weeks, one Mighty Heroes episode would be split in two to open and close the show, with two Mighty Mouse cartoons broadcast in-between; the character voices were provided by Herschel Bernardi, who provided all voices of Strong Man, Diaper Man, Tornado Man, Lionel Wilson, who provided Cuckoo Man and Rope Man. Bernardi was the original provider of the "Ho Ho Ho" voice of the Jolly Green Giant and of StarKist's Charlie the Tuna's voice in commercials. Wilson was the voice of the title character in another famous Terrytoons series, Tom Terrific. Only 20 episodes were produced. Reruns of The Mighty Heroes were syndicated by Viacom in the 1970s as part of the Mighty Mouse package. There have been two licensed VHS releases. Episodes of The Mighty Heroes appeared in movie theaters for a time, with an episode shown to audiences, preceding the main attraction.

They appeared in animated form as guest stars in the episode "Heroes and Zeroes" of the late 1980s series Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures, produced by Bakshi, in which they had all retired and were running the accounting firm of Man, Man and Man. Diaper Man had grown up, evidenced by his wearing a mustache, they were in the 1999 pilot Curbside. There are three comic book adaptations of The Mighty Heroes; the first series ran for four issues. The second series ran for one issue; the third series was published by Marvel Comics in 1998 and ran for one issue. All five of the Mighty Heroes had the power to fly. Individually, they were: Strong Man has super strength, he holds a civilian job as a mechanic. His favorite fighting move is his "jet-propelled blow". Rope Man is a sailor. Erudite with a British accent, he can transform into a unending length of rope, he can use his hands like lassos, can weave himself into a net. The drawbacks to his powers are that he gets tangled up or knotted, more than not around his own teammates.

Tornado Man is a television weather forecaster. He sucks the villains into his vortex shoots them out toward the nearest wall, he speaks in a wheezy voice. Cuckoo Man is a bird-shop owner. Unlike the other heroes, who can fly with no effort, Cuckoo Man has to flap his arms constantly in order to keep aloft. Cuckoo Man changes into his costume by jumping up through the bottom of his store's cuckoo clock and popping out through the little door. While the other heroes' flying is accompanied by a "jet" sound effect similar to Mighty Mouse's, Cuckoo Man's is represented by a chugging jalopy-engine sound. Diaper Man is a red-headed, yet articulate baby as well as the leader of the group, who sounds a lot like Popeye the Sailor Man, his main weapon is his bottle, which by holding on to the rubber nipple, he can swing around forcefully. The bottle can shoot high pressure streams of baby formula. In emergencies, Diaper Man will drink some formula from the bottle. All of the 20 episodes were named after the enemies the Mighty Heroes encountered in each.
