Here I come to save the daaay!
Did this for a Mighty Mouse character jam over at the Drawing Board. It was fun to revisit Mighty Mouse. I loved him dearly for a period when I was very small. I remember the old cartoons used to come on TV very early in the morning and I'd watch them before kindergarten. One Halloween I even dressed up as Mighty Mouse. My costume consisted of a pair of black mouse ears, my nose painted black, a red cape, and a Mighty Mouse T-shirt which featured his name and image (I'm not sure why mom didn't help me find something actually yellow and red to wear with the cape--maybe I insisted on wearing the T-shirt since I liked it so much).
I wore the costume to a church party and also trick-or-treating. Every single person, young and old, who saw me called me Mickey Mouse. MICKEY! If the red cape didn't give it away, I would have thought the shirt that said MIGHTY MOUSE in bright, colorful letters would have helped them along. I remember feeling so exasperated by the end of the night. I guess Mighty Mouse has always been a bit of an under-the-radar character.
Anyway...what was the point again? Oh yeah...here's a Mighty Mouse drawing. Looks like he put the hurt on Oilcan Harry pretty bad.
