Here He Comes to Save the Day!

For my money, the best version of Mighty Mouse was the 1980s Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures series. It lasted only two seasons, but it was a hoot, and one of the many reasons I got myself out of bed on Saturday mornings as a kid. The intro alone made the show worth watching and is easily one of my all-time favorite cartoon openings.

On January 5, 2010, the complete series of Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures hits stores.
This 3 disc set is remastered and even has some of the original theatrical Mighty Mouse shorts. Personally, I'm beyond stoked for this DVD release and just may pre-order my copy.

"Mighty Mouse" what long lost memories. I thought those were 90s seasons

I couldn't let it escape my notice that the show is "made by Ralph Bakshi", the creator of the two grotesque seasons of the first Spider-Man animated series

I prefer Mouse voice in the earlier series, it was much better, if you saw "The Incredible Shrinking Hulk" from the 1982 animated Hulk series you'll hear "Mini Bruce" having the same voice as mouse in the early series

What's funny is; why not all the episodes gathered in one single DVD? Or in a single "Blu Ray Disk"?

You mean the Spider-Man series from the '90s?

Bakshi didn't work on the 90s series, he only worked on the 60s animated Spider-Man series, terrible music (some is very good) & terrible green skinned villains, not to mention the atmosphere and sky is like a vomit, Spider-Man never fought any of his villains except Mysterio, Vulture, Kingpin & Rhino

Vulture & Rhino episodes are rehashes of their episodes from the first season of that show by "Grantray & Lawrence", Mysterio & Kingpin had their episodes built on comic stories

The episodes you mean? No, I meant to gather all "Mighty Mouse" episodes in 1 DVD, or one "Blu Ray" disk

By the way; nice new design

Ohhhh the one from the '60s is the one you meant. Yeah, it did use a lot of stock footage.
