Mighty Max was Mighty Good

Mighty Max was a 1993/1994 animated series. It was one those rare cartoons series that was able to merge action, sci-fi, and horror together effectively. The show, like most cartoons was created to promote the aptly named Mighty Max toys, which was an offshoot of Blue Bird Toy’s Polly Pocket lineup.

Max ran for two seasons, with a total of 40 episodes. It starred the voice talents of Rob Paulsen as Max, Richard Moll as Norman, Tony Jay as Virgil, and Tim Curry as Skullmaster.

The show’s intro was screechy memorable…

If you have a VCR you can still watch some Mighty Max magic by picking up Mighty Max: The Skullmaster Trilogy.

Mighty Max Toys

Mighty Max was a series of toys that were manufactured by Irwin Toy Limited and Mattel. The original line consisted mainly of “Doom Zones” and “Horror Heads.” Doom Zones were these small playsets with horror themes and featured miniature figurines of menacing creatures and the hero Max. The Horror Heads were smaller-sized playsets, that were shaped like the heads of creatures and also contained miniature figures.

Here is an example of the Doom Zone “Mighty Max Conquers the Palace of Poison”

The toys were later adapted as a TV series (1993-1994) and eventually into a Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis game.
