Please ask Mr. Bakshi about the silly controversy about his wonderful Mighty Mouse series. I loved that show!

Could you ask Mr. Bakshi about Wizards and about the possibility of a sequel that was in the works at some point? Thank you!

please ask Mr Bakshi when The New Adventures of Mighty Mouse will be available on DVD, or who we should contact to campaign for its release.
