Courageous Cat and Minute Mouse
Synopsis of Saturday Morning Show
In an effort to satirize his own creation, Batman creator Bob Kane developed this cartoon featuring a crime fighting cat and mouse. Courageous Cat and Minute Mouse protected the citizens of Empire City from a multitude of villains, including arch-nemesis Chauncey "Flat-Face" Frog, an amphibian gangster who sounded like Edward G. Robinson. In order to defeat the miscreants, Courageous Cat would employ his Catgun, an engineering marvel that could convert from gun to umbrella, shield, ladder, or whatever was necessary.
It may not have been groundbreaking in terms of story or animation, but Courageous Cat and Minute Mouse was still a favorite of many kids, who delighted in seeing a merging of their two favorite types of cartoons: talking animals and superheroes.
The series stayed on the air for only one season, but reruns were dusted off and shown in syndication after the prime-time Batman achieved its huge success later in the decade.
