Original[edit | edit source]

No backstory was given to the original Mighty Mouse (also called Super Mouse or Terry the First) save that he was a powerful, superheroic mouse who would protect those who needed saving. Often, he spends time saving his love interest, fellow mouse Pearl Pureheart, from disasters and villains such as the evil cat Oil Can Harry.  Most of the time, he fights off predators and bullies who target the weak, surprising them with his amazing flight, strength and speed. Mighty Mouse's enemies are primarily cats, though he is shown battling aliens, robots and even evil humans occassionally.  In addition, one incident had him defeating a demonic nameless cat who intended to spur on a mouse/cat war in a city that was segregated between the two species.
