Synopsis:

 


 

For those who believe that comedian Jim Carrey is actually a cartoon disguised in human form, the 1995-96 cartoon season offered abundant evidence. Three of Carrey’s starring vehicles were adapted to the small screen: Dumb and Dumber, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, and The Mask.

 

Of the three, The Mask was probably the most obvious choice for adaptation. The feature film was a digitally-enhanced human cartoon, based on the Dark Horse comic book. The animated series continued the adventures of nerdy Stanley Ipkiss, who discovered an 11th-century green mask that transformed him into an invulnerable, super-powered loony.

 

In the cartoon, Edge City resident Stanley, often with his dog Milo in tow, used The Mask to battle the criminal element or to get himself out of a tight spot. As in the movie, he donned The Mask with trepidation in lieu of the fact that the artifact amplified the personality of its wearer to its most chaotic and unpredictable extreme. Aware that it was Stanley who assumed the role of The Mask, tabloid reporter Peggy Brandt was often in the thick of the action, looking for sensational stories of The Mask to advance her career. Red-mohawked bad scientist Pretorious supplied most of the crime, while the insane Kablam added a dose of toxic mayhem.

 

In place of Jim Carrey, who was not involved with the show, Rob Paulsen supplied the title character’s voice. The switch apparently didn't bother Mask devotees, who made the show a hit in its two seasons on CBS.
