Saturday Morning's Forgotten Heroes: Mighty Man & Yukk vs. The Creep & Dr. Icicle (1979)

It's been a while since we looked in on Ruby-Spears' tiny titan, Mighty Man (Peter Cullen) and his canine sidekick, Yukk (Frank Welker, using his Dynomutt voice), so we've got a two-fer for ya.

First up, our heroes are hired to protect Mr. Johnson (Michael Rye) from his villainous cousin in "Where There's a Will, There's a Creep". Then, while on a ski vacation, Mighty Man flies into action to battle "Doctor Icicle", not to be confused with the DC Comics villain of a similar name from the Golden Age.

Peter Cullen & Frank Welker have worked together for years on the Transformers franchise, but this is where the chemistry between the two actors formed. Unfortunately, the episodes are sabotaged by bad writing.

Rating: C.
