CosmoCat & SuperDuper Mouse

When you think of Atomic Kommie Comics™, you don't usually think of funny animals.
Well, it's time you did...
We're reintroducing two more long-lost superheroes from the 1940s. We've done that many times before in our Lost Heroes of the Golden Age of Comics™ line.
This time, there's a twist...
They're funny animals, and they're for kids only!
Cosmo Cat, like many other superheroes, was created by an accident that would kill most normal people (or animals).
In his case it was dropping a bomb on his foot.
The fact that he was standing in an atomic power plant at the time might have had something to do with his survival. (Scientific accuracy was not one of the strong points of Golden Age stories...)
After gaining the usual super-powers of invulnerability (which all animated animal characters have to an extent, Ask Wile E. Coyote!) super-strength, and flight, he renewed his powers by taking Cosmic Catnip Capsules!
Despite having the power of flight, he rode in a cat-rocket when traveling from his base on the Moon to battle crime on Earth.
He was one of the last of a wave of 1940s super-animals including Super Rabbit (ironically from Timely/Marvel) and Hoppy the Marvel Bunny, the animal surrogate of the Golden Age Captain Marvel.

We're also offering the FIRST of that wave...Super Mouse (although we're calling him "SuperDuper Mouse" to avoid wrath of the owners of the Big Man in Blue! (and, no, Super Mouse was not a DC character!)
Super Mouse also took a controlled substance to maintain his powers; in his case cheese produced from the milk of a "super-cow"! (We won't dwell on the implications of chemical/radiation-enhanced animals, at least not while chewing on our genetically-manipulated cheeseburger...)

At any rate, we're offering several images of each furry hero (plus SuperDuper Cat and other funny animals) at Tykes, Toddlers & Tiny Tots™.
Please note: while we offer the usual assortment of mugs, mousepads and other tchochkies, the clothing is infant, toddler, and kid sizes only!
And, they make great Christmas gifts (hint, hint)
