We're not worrying at all
We're just listening for his call
"Here I come to save the day!"
That means that Mighty Mouse is on the way!
Here he comes to save the day
And he will prove that crime will never pay
So let the trumpet players play
For Mighty Mouse is here today!

Mighty Mouse is an animated superhero mouse character created by the Terrytoons studio for 20th Century Fox. Mighty Mouse cartoons became a staple of children's TV programming for a period of over thirty years, from the 1950s through the 1980s.

Theme song[edit]

Mister Trouble never hangs around
When he hears this mighty sound
"Here I come to save the day!"
That means that Mighty Mouse is on the way!

Yessir, when there is a wrong to right
Mighty Mouse will join the fight
On the sea or on the land
He gets the situation well in hand!

So, though we are in danger, we never despair
'Cause we know that where there's danger he is there
He is there, on the land, on the sea, in the air!

We're not worryin' at all
We're just listenin' for his call
"Here I come to save the day!"
That means that Mighty Mouse is on the way!

<instrumental interlude>

We're not worryin' at all
We're just listenin' for his call
"Here I come to save the day!"
That means that Mighty Mouse is on the way!

Theme song (Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures)[edit]

Mighty Mouse: Here he comes, that Mighty Mouse
Coming to vanquish the foe with a mighty blow
So don't be afraid anymore
Choir: 'Cause things won't be like they've been before!

Mighty Mouse: Here I come to save the day!
Choir: Thank goodness Mighty Mouse is on his way
So let the trumpet players play
For Mighty Mouse is here today!

Mighty Mouse: Here he comes, that Mighty Mouse
Just like a bolt from the blue with a heart that's true
Fighting evil, fighting crime
Choir: And always there in the nick of time

Mighty Mouse: Here he comes to save the day
Choir: And he will prove that crime will never pay
So let the trumpet players play
For Mighty Mouse is here today!

The Great Space Chase (1982 movie)[edit]

Mighty Mouse: <sung> Here I come to save the day!

Mighty Mouse: Don't worry, Pearl! I'll be right there!

Pearl: Do you have the feeling we're being watched?
Mighty Mouse: Oh, tut-tut, Pearl. It's just your imagination! (pictures creep them out) Then again, I could be wrong!

Mighty Mouse: I think we just discovered Harry's secret lair.
Pearl: I knew we could count on him.

Mighty Mouse: I don't know what came over me, Queen Pearl! You never affected me like that!
Pearl: Let's just catch Harry, okay?!

Mighty Mouse: A large gear! The Domesday Device must be close by!

Harry: You may have freed your miserable ship, but I have you, Pearl! And you're going to tell me where the Interstellar Federation hides the Domesday Device! Once I have it, I will have the power to conquer the universe! The power to rule the galaxy! The power to make the planets grovel at my feet!
Pearl: You're mad for power! That's all you want!
Harry: Actually, I wouldn't mind a little money, too. So tell me, where is the Domesday Device?
Pearl: No! No! 1,000 times no! I'd rather die!:
Harry: Don't tempt me!

Pearl: It's too bad one of us isn't an anchovy. Nobody eats anchovies!
1st Mate: How much longer can we hold out?
Pearl: Not much longer, I'm afraid. Goodbye, first mate!
1st Mate: Don't say goodbye! We're not finished yet!
Pearl: No? Stand on the bottom and say that!

Mighty Mouse: Ah, this is the life. I hope no ants come along and spoil it! (ants come to picnic and leave Pearl's ship) I knew the one thing they couldn't resist was a picnic. By the way, where is the ship?
Pearl: I'm standing on it. Don't worry, Mighty Mouse. We always carry a spare!

Pearl: I hate to do this, but I must. In the name of the Interstellar Federation, I hereby arrest you for stealing the Domesday Device.
Mighty Mouse: You're making a mistake, but I'd be the last one to resist the authority of law and order. I'll go peacefully. (lets police handcuff him)

King Muss: Order in the court! Order in the court!
Someone in crowd: I'll take a swiss cheese on rye!
King Muss: (ignoring comment) The next case is Humongo vs. Mighty Mouse, but first, I declare the court has a recess! (jumps rope 5 times) Recess is over! (tosses rope away) Don't worry, Mighty Mouse. We are going to give you a fair trial, before we find you guilty.
Mighty Mouse: Your honor, I appeal to you!L
King Muss: Not as much as Queen Pearl does! Queen Pearl, will you take the stand? (He turns and notices the stand is missing) Oh, looks like somebody already took it! Ha!

Mighty Mouse: <whispers in Matta Furi's ear>
Matta Furri: A little louder, please!
Mighty Mouse: That's Star Coordinace 66Z, 1776, Omega.

<Harry turns off TV screen>
Harry: Thanks, you romantic fool, you! <laughs evil laugh>

Harry: Swifty, hand me the main cable!
Swifty: Okay, boss. <confused over two cables>
Pearl: Psst. Not that one. The other one.
Swifty: Oh, gee; thanks!

Pearl: One bad thing about being a villain, Harry; you always seem to get it in the end.
Harry: Normally this sort of thing would make me angry. But this time, I'm furious!

Matta Furri: Come here, big boy!

Pearl: All right, you! What did you do to him?
Mighty Mouse: Wow! That was some kiss!
Pearl: Oh, for goodness sake!
Matta Furri: Goodness had nothing to do with it!

King Muss: Do you solemnly swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth? The absolutely true truth? The truly true truth? The positively true truth?
Pearl: I do. I do. Well, I was in the middle of a conference with King Muss. I wondered whether the Domesday Device was safe here on Humungo. Suddenly, an alarm went off. When we got to the vault, the device was...<starts crying>...gone! I thought Harry the Heartless had stolen it, but there, in the empty vault, was...was...Mighty Mouse!
King Muss: Ooh. It looks bad for you, Mighty Mouse. I have a feeling you're going to spend the next 900 years rotting away in a cold, damp, dark prison cell.
Mighty Mouse: But I'm a superhero. Everyone knows of my valor and good deeds.
King Muss: Hmmm. In that case, maybe we can get you a cell with a view.
Mighty Mouse: This trial is a joke!
<Harry has been listening in from his ship>
Harry: Yeah, and an old one, two!

Harry: There it is! It's a toy store! Ah! I hate toys, well, except for one toy I had. It was an unbreakable toy. I used it to break everybody else's!

Santa Claus: <after seeing a jack-in-the-box> I'll take several hundred billion of them! Ho, ho, ho!
Harry: Ho, ho, ho, yourself, lardo, and get lost!
<Harry throws Santa out of "Toys We Is">
Swifty: Master! Do you know who that was?
Harry: Come on, Swifty. There's no such person as...
<scene on Santa>
Santa Claus: Well! Wait until I tell the tooth fairy about this!

Swifty: Hipporanium!
Harry: For the first time in your life, Swifty, you are bright! Grab some of those ant farms, too!

Mighty Mouse: Ha! This tin cat thinks he can keep me from rescuing Queen Pearl. He doesn't know it but he's headed for cat-tastrophe!

Harry: <after being beamed aboard with Swifty but the two bodies have been mixed up> Can't you bimbos ever get it right?!

Harry: Load those torpedo tubes, Swifty. We're going to send Queen Pearl these ant farms.
Swifty: Oh, what a thoughtful gesture. Is it her birthday?
Harry: No, you claude! These are Martian metal-eating ants!

    1st Mate: Frankly, Your Highness, I don't think anybody does! (from Mouse of the Desert)

  • Purple Genie: I am set, and I know all; even the reason why you call! To get rid of the queen and take over her kingdom, give her a basket of figs with a snake in them, and you will soon be the ruler of all!
    Harry: Yes! Ha, ha, ha! I'll hide a snake in a basket of figs and give them to the queen! Oh! What a beautifully wicked scheme! (from Mouse of the Desert)

    Harry: That is Pearl Pureheart's undersea farm! And my diabolical plan is to capture her ship and use it to pray on other vessels!

The First Deadly Cheese[edit]

Crew leader: Better hurry, Mighty Mouse. My crew starts tearing up the land in 3 minutes at noon sharp.
Mighty Mouse: Relax, guys; it's plenty of time. I'll have this out of here before you can say... [starts to lift the building]
Crew member: Before you can say what?
Crew leader: I don't know. Must be Latin. You know these intellectuals!
