Synopsis: Girl mouse wishes for boy mouse, also gets evil box dropped by random witch.

Comments: Mighty nice castles in the sky. Jewels and cheese in the rococo manner. For some reason, Pandora's leaf skirt has bloomers underneath. In this creation story, a girl wishes for a boy, and thus Mighty Mouse came to be (tho he still needed to eat his vitamins). Shiny witch outfit. Winged cats in the box. Audio sounds clipped in places. Fire shadows. I'm not sure if the cats are supposed to be vaguely Japanese; they are slightly yellow, and have almond eyes at times. Mighty Mouse seems to be redubbed; it was probably Supermouse originally. I'm not sure of the windmill is meant to be a Tulips Shall Grow style war reference. Supermouse kinda Gulliver's that fire out, if you catch my Swift. I like this cartoon, but it has a very poorly formed story and feels like a random kludge of various elements they had laying around.
