The next new episode is supposed to feature Green Arrow. "The Batman" show was pretty good, especially in the last couple of seasons.

The only thing I didn't like about The Batman was some of the stylistic choices they made. The look of the Batman-tech, if you will, and some of the character designs. I liked Batman, and the Batgirl and Robin designs were good as well, but some of the villains were just way off. Looking at Joker and Riddler mostly here, although I would like to add that I totally liked them as characters aside from their aesthetic look. Would have rather had them keep Clayface as he was too rather than trying to make Clayface into a Twoface-type character. And don't even get me started on Mr. Freeze.

One thing I was glad about was Catwoman's model. In this regard, they really nailed what I want to see in Catwoman's design. I never really liked the one on Batman: TAS, and the final season's design change was even more bad.

There is one good thing about this Brave and the Bold cartoon I neglected to mention before. Plastic Man. Apparently he exists in DCAU (he's mentioned in an episode of Justice League Unlimited), but he's never shown. Not during Batman, Superman, or Justice League. I really would have liked to have seen him, particularly when other characters I don't really care for got multiple episodes of exposure.

The character of Plastic Man was tied up in legal limbo for years due to rights and holdings related to his own 80's animated series. IT was a great stroke that the copyrights reverted when they did so they could use him in B:B&B.

Green Arrow is a Batman knock off in almost every way. The only reason Smallville tapped him was because Mr. Wayne was unavailable due to contractual stipulations for the recent Batman films. In fact, if I recall, Smallville originally stemmed out of a pitch for a live action TV show about Bruce Wayne before he became Batman.

I think this is a fun kids cartoon. And there's nothing wrong with that. People who get upset when an animated property is aimed at children really need to take a step back. There's a lot of garbage out there that's marketed to kids these days. It's refreshing to have a decent show for the kids like "Batman: The Brave and the Bold" on the air. Hell, I don't even have kids and I still get a kick out of watching it.

I will admit that Batman's voice is a bit of a hurdle for me though. I like Diedrich Bader, but every time I hear the voice I picture Oswald from the Drew Carey Show. I keep waiting for Ryan Stiles and the Whose Line gang to show up. Hmm. That might make a fun episode now that I think about it.

I managed to catch the first episode, and the voice was disappointing to me as well. I will always want Kevin Conroy as the voice of any animated Batman, but I'm sure I will watch it again.

Anyone catch this week's episode on Friday? The Blue Beetle that most people are familiar with, Ted Kord, made an appearance. I liked the episode a lot, though I am really looking forward to next week when the Atom makes an appearance.

Great show. So refreshing to see a good version of Batman.
Batman is supposed to be a dark and mysterious figure. A lot like the Kevin Conroy Batman, but this is just a cheezy kids show.

I like the show, although nothing will ever beat the animated series.

apparently you never read the batman comics in the late 70's and early. or watch the batman cartoons back then either. they were most cheezy and for kids. heck, batman once teamed up with scooby doo. batman is not supposed to be dark and msyterious. that's only one incarnation, but it's not the only incarnation. what batman is is up to the writers.

I watched the episode with Aquaman and hated it. I can't believe they make this crap and cancel The Batman on Kids WB. Still the 90's Batman animated series was the best.

Great episode. I was especially happy to see Dan Garrett get some love. Everybody tends to forget about him. Sure, this show is aimed at kids (and there's nothing wrong with that!), but there's lots of little bits they throw in that make it a lot of fun for older viewers who follow (or at least used to) the comic books.

On a side note, I was thrilled that they used Guy Gardner as the Green Lantern a few weeks back. He's the only version who hadn't gotten any cartoon love in the various DC animated projects up till that point.

Psst. There is no "Real Batman". He's a fictional character.

And he can be whatever the writers want him to be.

I agree with you there. The Batman had much more cooler action and story.

That might be canon in the Scooby Doo universe, but I'm confident that it is not canon for Batman...

Aside from that you're totally right. People are just upset that Batman is being taken so seriously in his live action movies, then turned into a kiddie show joke in TV animation. People want to see Batman as a dark and mysterious figure.

Yeah, and I am still waiting for a Batman live-action TV show

I saw the evil robot santas/Red Tornado episode, I thought it was pretty funny and reminded me of the 60's batman tv show

I do not believe we will ever see Warner let anyone develop a live-action television show based around or featuring Batman. The executives believe it would dilute the brand of their most valuable movie franchise at this point. It is why we keep seeing all these animated Batman projects, because they are mostly aimed at kids and teenagers.

I think he means he wants the classic TV show released on DVD.
