The Mighty Heroes - Plastic Blaster
August 23, 2006
The Mighty Heroes, Strong Man ... Rope Man ... Cuckoo Man ... Tornado Man ... Diaper Man ... Together, they battled crime and evil as The Mighty Heroes in a fondly remembered 1,960s Saturday morning animated superhero spoof.
The Mighty Heroes, a Terrytoons production, debuted on CBS, on Oct. 29, 1,966. The series was created by Ralph Bakshi, whose later credits include the first animated version of Spider-Man, such features as Wizards, American Pop and Fritz the Cat, and a stint as creative director of Paramount's Famous Studios. The characters' voices were provided by Herschel Bernardi (Charlie Tuna) and Lionel Wilson (Tom Terrific).
The show lasted only one season, with 20 episodes. Afterward, its segments were re-run as part of the syndicated Mighty Mouse half-hour. Between 1,969 and '71, about half of the episodes were released as theatrical cartoons. During the 1,970s and '80s, they were syndicated separately, and appeared alongside Bugs Bunny and Popeye, in local kid programs all over America.
