Mighty Mouse Fan Club Thrill Package

Look how much fun it was to be part of the Mighty Mouse Fan Club! You get a nifty "Sourpuss Hole activity" as just part of the fun.This is too much cool stuff. A kid would have a heart attack from this much joy.Before you play with all your Terrytoons treasures, here are the important rules you must follow.You better do exactly as we say, if you don't want Mighty Mouse himself to come and beat your ass.


You can walk faster in official Mighty Mouse shoes. What makes them Mighty Mouse shoes?There is a picture of him inside the shoe where only the wrinkly part of your foot will ever see it.

Pocket size Mighty Mouse comics are a thrill and a half.
Lots of wholesome punching in every issue.
A good dose of all-American strangling sets a good example for children as well.

No problem can not be resolved by a good sock in the kisser.

Bonus ROQUEFORT CADAVER

Most kids enjoy dead versions of their favorite cartoon characters.
Here is Little Roquefort in his casket.
He has a special nose.
Whoever is auctioning this toy knows instinctively that the perfectly preserved mummified label is its essential selling point.
Roquefort may have passed on, but his tapeworm still thrives.

That's so cool! I love how much cartoonists cared for the audience back when cartoons were fun

Terrytoons sure know how to treat there fans. If I was a kid, I'd kill to have this stuff.

These are great. I was hoping from the post title and CBS logo on the envelope that it would be a New Adventures package, actually.

I showed my girlfriend some New Adventures cartoons recently - Don't Touch That Dial, Mighty's Benefit Plan, Night On Bald Pate, The Ice Goose Cometh, Pirates With Dirty Faces - and they are still really fun and funny!

When I was a little bitty kid in the very early 1960s, I really enjoyed Might Mouse cartoons. But there was something about most of the Terrytoons that bothered me. I think it was the obvious looping that was done to save money. Even though the Paul Terry cartoons were far and away more detailed and more fluid than Hanna Barbera toons, I still enjoyed Quickdraw McGraw and Yogi Bear to Heckle and Jekyll.

Those toys are neat as hell. The fan club kit is killer-good stuff. They used to GIVE that stuff away! Just so little kids would continue to watch the cartoons and ask their mommies for the sugar-infused breakfast cereals they'd see advertised there!

I always wished that when Mighty would biff someone huge it would punch a tiny hole in their face like a paper punch the size of his fist. The resulting flying flesh plug could then be used to taunt them. Alas no... Even cartoon violence has it's limits I guess.

That's my kinda gag!

Dubious Duck said...

Is their really any logical reasoning as to why this stuff is forgotten? The talent is out there but they are forced into making such crappy productions that despite their skill the programming is so bad these days. Any artist emulating the Golden Age is like the black plague or a liability in the eyes of those executives.

Dubious Duck said...

Which is exactly why executives would consider this stuff unmarketable even though re-introducing old cartoons is the best idea the animation industry has had in a while.

It looks like someone has been opening their Christmas presents early!

C said...

They should do that now! There are a lot of cartoon characters I'd love to see dead, whether I like them or not.

Is that a 1359 copyright on that figurine? Perhaps it's a tribute to Little Roqufort's smash hit cartoon of that year, "Pan-dumb-ic" a.k.a. "Pestilence Pest", in which he inadvertently causes the Black Plaque. Watch for a hilarious cameo by Farmer Al Falfa as a dying peasant.

Mykal said...

Not exactly a brilliant likeness of Little Roquefort, is it?

It sure beats Power Rangers Fan Club! Also, have you seen the Hanes Socks ad. It seems to use the "Stay-Put Socks" concept. Wouldn't that be copyrighted

Rob Mortimer said...

We used to have a cheap Mighty Mouse VHS, and it always seemed really cheesy and based on one idea repeated.

I do wonder though whether it's something I should try watching again.
