Again, I thought I was Crazy Until They Invented the Internet

At a duly called and scheduled Friendly Friends board meeting earlier this evening, after a hoisting a few at our local brewpub, another one of those hazy childhood memories came to me.

The conversation was quick. I remembered, vaguely, a cartoon that featured some strange superheroes including a guy in a diaper, a guy made out of rope, a crazy clock guy and some other random do-gooders.

Matt remembered them immediately. He claimed that they were called "The Mighty Heroes." And he remembered that they were Rope Man, Tornado Man, Bird Man and Diaper Man.

That's why I love the Internet. It lets me know that at least 10% of my hazy memories are based in reality.
