Saturday Morning's Forgotten Heroes: The Mighty Heroes vs. the Scarecrow (1966)

The Mighty Heroes weren't infringing on any copyrights in this short, although their enemy shares a name with villains associated with Batman and Captain America.

Yes, Terrytoons decided to pit the Heroes against "The Scarecrow", which, in this case, is a magically created creature, not a guy in a suit. Marvel's had 2 Scarecrows. One was a villain who fought Captain America, the other a supernatural being from the 70's. Of course, you all know about Dr. Jonathan Crane, aka DC's Scarecrow.

Typical fare. Suspension of disbelief required.

Rating: C.

I always liked these guys, and am rather upset there was never any official DVD release of The Mighty Heroes cartoons.

Hmmm. Seeing as how CBS would have the rights to the characters, you'd think they'd do something about that, especially when they turn 50 next year.
