TV on DVD: Not your everyday 'Mighty Mouse'



Series Demented minds think alike! Animators Ralph Bakshi ("Fritz the Cat") and John Kricfalusi ("Ren & Stimpy") joined forces for this momentarily controversial '80s Saturday morning remake. Their wicked sense of satire (a parody of "The Fountainhead"?) paved the way for crazed cartoon comedy from Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network.

Extras Loony making-of half-hour with vintage backstage video, plus episode commentaries, three color cartoons from Super/Mighty Mouse's original operatic '40s-'60s run (so beloved by Andy Kaufman).

List price $47 for 3 discs, out today from Paramount.
