This was John K.'s work but was primarilary Ralph Bakshi's vehicle. John K. basically apprenticed on this show to Bakshi, which led to John's brilliant work on Ren and Stimpy.

Well, if hatless is gonna BBS, then I get to, also!

I've seen the cartoon in question. When Mighty Mouse sniffs the flowers, a light vapor rises from the flowers and goes into his nostrils, just like it has done for any other cartoon character who smells flowers. That doesn't equal cocaine advocacy, any more than Donald Duck's lack of pants equals nudity advocacy.

As for Pee-Wee Herman's show, when I was able to watch it, it always struck me as a very fun and funny show that kids enjoyed watching. Pee-Wee never took his pants down and whacked off. He did that on his own time. The fact that he enjoyed beating off in porno theaters doesn't mean that his show was an adult program.

When one assumes that the most negative interpretation is always correct, and that the actor cannot be separated from the character he plays, that is what creates censors like Donald Wildmon.

Oh, and just to keep this on-topic (kinda), "The New Adventures of Mighty Mouse" was a hugely hilarious show. The single best character? The Cow. Any character whose catchphrase is "I! Am! The Cow! Moo!" is A-OK in my book.
