Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures was an animated television show produced by Bakshi Animation and aired on CBS from 1987 to 1988. The show featured Mighty Mouse, a beloved character created in 1942 by Paul Terry and originally known as Super Mouse. The New Adventures of Mighty Mouse was a reboot of the classic character, set in modern times and featuring updated animation and themes. The show was aimed at a younger audience and featured slapstick humor, action-packed adventures, and moral lessons.

The show's main character, Mighty Mouse, was voiced by actor Patrick Pinney. Mighty Mouse was a mouse with super strength, flight, and speed, and he used his powers to fight various villains and save the day. In The New Adventures of Mighty Mouse, Mighty Mouse was re-imagined as a superhero who lived in a city of mice called Mouseville.

Mighty Mouse's arch-nemesis was Oil Can Harry, a villainous cat who was frequently up to no good. Oil Can Harry was voiced by character actor Michael Pataki, who brought a mischievous and conniving personality to the character. Oil Can Harry would often launch diabolical schemes to take over Mouseville or steal valuable treasures, and it was up to Mighty Mouse to stop him.

In addition to Oil Can Harry, Mighty Mouse faced a variety of other villains throughout the series. These villains included a mad scientist who created giant monsters, a group of thieves who stole a valuable diamond, and a robot who threatened to take over the world.

One of the show's unique features was its animation style. The New Adventures of Mighty Mouse used a combination of traditional hand-drawn animation and computer-generated imagery (CGI). This allowed for dynamic action scenes and enhanced visual effects, such as the glowing energy beams that were often used in the show.

The New Adventures of Mighty Mouse also had a strong emphasis on music. The show's theme song, "Here I Come to Save the Day," was a classic tune from the original Mighty Mouse cartoons, and it was updated for the new series. The show also featured musical segments in which Mighty Mouse would sing and play an instrument, such as the guitar or the harmonica.

Despite its focus on humor and action, The New Adventures of Mighty Mouse also had a moral component. Each episode contained a lesson or message that was designed to teach kids about important values, such as honesty, teamwork, and perseverance. These lessons were often delivered by Mighty Mouse himself, who would explain the importance of doing the right thing and helping others.

In conclusion, The New Adventures of Mighty Mouse was a fun and entertaining animated series that brought the classic character back to television screens. With its updated animation style, memorable villains, and catchy music, the show captured the hearts of a new generation of fans while staying true to the spirit of the original Mighty Mouse cartoons. Moreover, Patrick Pinney's excellent voice-over work as Mighty Mouse breathed new life into the character, making him a hero beloved by both children and adults alike.
