The Mighty Heroes was a half-hour long. It was created by Ralph Bakshi, produced by Terrytoons, creators of Mighty Mouse, and premiered on CBS on October 22, 1966. The series featured an odd mixture of heroes with the names of Diaper Man (a diapered baby who is the leader of the group, his main weapon is his bottle), Tornado Man (a TV weatherman who can spin himself into a tornado, sucking the villains into his vortex), Rope Man (a sailor whose body is an unending length of rope), Cuckoo Man (his powers are bird-based, constantly flaps his arms in order to keep aloft), and Strong Man (has incredible strength, likes to flies into a villain fist-first). The team members are clumsy accident-prone bumblers who often find themselves in silly situations. However, after escaping the villain's deathtrap in the cliffhanger, the team always manages to prevail in the end.
