Courageous Cat and Minute Mouse was a children's cartoon television show produced by Trans-Artists Productions that was syndicated by Tele Features Inc. in 1960. The characters were created by Bob Kane as a parody of his earlier works Batman and Robin and in many ways predict the more campy aspects of the later live action series.
In the animated series, the pair are anthropomorphic animal superheroes without secret identities (the green-eyed caped crimefighter and his squeaky-voiced sidekick are usually addressed as simply "Courageous" and "Minute") who live in the Cat Cave and, when summoned via the Cat Signal over their television set, race to the scene of the crime in their sleekly feline red Cat Mobile which can convert into both the extendable-winged Cat Plane and submersible Cat Boat and thwart the criminal plots of various villains who threaten Empire City by using either Courageous Cat's all-purpose Cat Gun or a vast variety of different deus ex machina "trick guns" he pulls out of his cape that, like Green Arrow's trick arrows, fire whatever the situation requires be it rope, water, a parachute, cages, boxing gloves, lightning-like magnetic rays or even more bizarre ammunition and even the occasional actual bullet (in case of emergency Courageous also has extra pre-James Bond secret gadgets hidden in his belt buckle and the star emblem on his chest).
Although they fought many miscreants the duo's recurring archenemy who appeared in nearly every episode was the chortling, cigar-smoking, derby-hatted criminal mastermind known as the Frog whose real name is Chauncey and whose voice was based on Edward G. Robinson. Dal McKennon and Bob McFadden provided the voices for the series.
Not seen for many years due to complaints over the hero's firearm fetish and the Frog's ever-present cigar, all 130 five minute long episodes were released to DVD on October 29, 2002 by A&E Home Video.
The memorable theme music by Johnny Holiday featured a walking bass line and has been performed in concert by the New York Dolls.
Due to the five minute length of the cartoons, they were often used as interstitials or airtime filler, especially to accommodate a movie or show that ends at an unusually early time.
