Mighty Mouse Painted By Chad!

I bought Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures on dvd Tuesday and I'm enjoying seeing it again. I remember when it aired on Saturday mornings watching it and marvelling at the weirdness of it. It was truly a harbinger of excellent things to come, and I hope this dvd sells well enough to convince Viacom that it would be a very good idea to release the original Terrytoons shorts.

I recently chanced upon a 1953 storybook published by Treasure Books and featuring art by none other than the great Chad Grothkopf, or "Chad." After appreciating his work on Fawcett's Hoppy The Marvel Bunny for many years, it's interesting to see his take on MM. Enjoy!
