Courageous Cat<small>™</small> and Minute Mouse

Courageous Cat™ and Minute Mouse paired the unlikely duo in the battle against evil-dooers. The team of masked superheroes was created by Bob Kane as a parody of his earlier creation, Batman.

The parody was very obvious. Courageous Cat™, based in the Cat Cave, received his orders from the Police Chief of Empire City, who happened to be a dog. The crime-fighting duo traveled around in the Catmobile and carried around a multi-purpose Catgun. The Catgun fired just about everything, except bullets. The duo's foes included Rodney Rodent, Shoo Shoo Fly, Professor Shaggy Dog, The Black Cat, Harry Gorilla, Iron Shark, Professor Noodle Stroodle and The Frog, a cigar-chomping amphibian who spoke in the gangster style of Edward G. Robinson.
