Never in my life have I seen anything so awesome as this:

Moby Dick and the Mighty Mightor



Alex Toth is now the object of my worship. Kids in the '60s had all the raddest stuff. When oh when can I buy Mighty Mightor, The Herculoids and Shazzan on DVD?

Yes! I love Toth too. There need to be more shows about Stone Age superheros.

Awesome indeed. And I have a theory that Mightor is set in the Flintstones universe post-apocalypse. The girl who rides around on the baby mammoth just looks too much like Pebbles - probably adopted by the caveman version of '70s Kenny Rogers.

i'm glad you mentioned Herculoids. Mightor was great, but Herculoids is one of my all-time favourite tv show.

and i know this show was later (like 1980), but Thundarr the Barbarian was also pretty fantastic.

Greg, did they make a show with Kamandi? I guess he's not really Stone Age, unless it's New Stone Age.

Matt, I thought of the Flintstones while watching that too. Caveman Kenny Rogers I didn't come up with though, so thank you for the image.

Greg said...

Not sure, Aaron, but it sure sounds like something Alex Toth would be down for.

I've always thought thre was a connection between Mightor's magic club, and that of Captain Caveman. Maybe the Stone Age equivalent of the Green Lantern Corps?
