Abstract:

IMDb: "A viewer notified media watchdog Reverend Donald Wildmon [of the American Family Association] that, in one episode ["The littlest tramp"] of this series ["Mighty Mouse : the new adventures"], it looks like Mighty Mouse reaches into a pocket and snorts cocaine from his hand to regain his strength ... [Program creator Ralph] Bakshi denies it to this day, maintaining that Mighty Mouse was merely smelling some crushed flowers and that the white jet leading from his hand to his nose was merely a cartoon 'smell line' moving super-fast from the mighty inhale. The episode was immediately pulled ... ". Library's collection consists of six items, material circulated via postal mail by Donald E. Wildmon and the American Family Association. The first item is a [4] page letter from Wildmon addressed to "Concerned parent and friend", detailing, amongst other things, the contents of the episode, CBS's response to complaints, and instructions to "(1) Sign and mail your enclosed postcard to CBS chairman Laurence Tisch. (2) Then sign and mail the two other postcards ... to leaders who stood up to CBS ... (3) Finally, sign and return the enclosed Values Protection Policy". The second item contains headline "CBS declares war on children : proof sheet", with pictures of scenes from the episode in question on one side, and on the other side, excerpts from "Edward J. Stegemann's July 21, 1988 letter to Mr. Laurence Tisch, President & CEO of CBS ... " along a facsimile of another letter to Tisch from "Rob Chandler, member of Congress", the two aforementioned "leaders who stood up to CBS". The third item contains a "Values Protection Policy" on one side, with a blank line for signature and date, and a prewritten letter to Wildmon on the other side, with text beginning "You can count on me to fight back against CBS and help protect our children ... ", along with a checklist for "what actions [the signee is] taking" and an option to donate money to the American Family Association. The fourth item is three prewritten, unperforated postcards, addressed to "Mr. Tisch", "Congressman Chandler" and "Mr. Stegemann". The fifth item is a business reply mail envelope, addressed to Wildmon and the American Family Association. The sixth item is the envelope the previous items were originally mailed in, with Wildmon and the American Family Association as the return address, and "CBS shows Saturday morning cartoon hero sniffing cocaine" printed across the front.
