Batman isn't going at it alone this time! From Warner Bros. Animation comes the latest interpretation of the classic Batman franchise. Our caped crusader is teamed up with heroes from across the DC Universe, delivering nonstop action and adventure with a touch of comic relief. Blue Beetle, Green Arrow, Aquaman and countless others will get a chance to uphold justice alongside Batman. Though still based in Gotham, Batman will frequently find himself outside city limits, facing situations that are both unfamiliar and exhilarating. With formidable foes around every corner, Batman will still rely on his stealth, resourcefulness and limitless supply of cool gadgets to bring justice home.
An updated animated series centering on the Caped Crusader himself as he partners and deals with his fellow superheroes in the DC Comics universe.
"Batman-The Brave And The Bold" is the newest entry in DC's and Warner's collaboration to bring the Caped Crusader to live on the television screen.
At first I thought the show was a stupid drawback to the 60s with a pseudo camp commentary in it. I was not convinced by the artwork or the shallow story lines.
Then I realized: You are 30 years old and you have known Batman for your whole life. You know what? We are not the target audience for this show.
It is a show designed for children and what a better way to introduce the DC Universe to them?
The show is light-hearted without being to naive, it is funny without letting the characters look ridiculous and it shows a deep understanding of the DC Universe's more minor characters.
If you are a fan of the DC Universe you need to check out this show. You will find delight in the characterization of each character, of the way they act in relation to Batman and how Batman responds to them.
The stories are not overly complex, but keep their surprising twists that helps to let you enjoy the whole 25 minutes of an episode.
The design is very retro, inspired a lot from the 60s show (outrageous gadgets and pay attention to the "mimic" of Batman's mask) without ripping it off.
The best example is Batman's voice: I love Kevin Conroy as Batman, but Diedrich Bader delivers the one-liners in Brave and the Bold with the same ironic honesty and competence that Adam West voiced his Batman with, again without ripping him off.
But the character design is beautiful throughout. I like that the Joker actually looks exactly like his first incarnation by Bob Kane or that Khamandi (who? yeah right) has actually that Jack Kirby style look to him.
This show may be simple, but it is the heart, love and understanding of it's sources that makes it so damn likable. This is what a re-imagining should be: Staying true to the sources, without being a slave to it, bringing in a fresh style and new ideas and knowing exactly what it is.
And I like the idea that today's kids go on Youtube 2.0 or whatever in 20 years and discover this show again, just like my generation did with the old Adam West show. And I hope that they will get the same fond memories of it.
To all the established fans and to future generations of Bat-followers:
Highly Recommended! I purchased the first THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD with Batman in it, so I've seen it all. The B&B stories were rarely, if ever, part of the continuity, so you fanboys whining about it destroying the mythos can get bent...you don't have Clue One what the mythos really is.
Bader, doing his "Hoss Delgado" voice, is an inspired voice casting, though its not likely we'll see Bruce Wayne in these episodes. So far, I've not been disappointed with the other voices we've heard.
The take on Aquaman is probably the most brilliant freakin' original take ever of one of the more dull characters in the DC Universe, and to have him show up as guest star *twice* made it all the better.
I am still chuckling..."A Hero Doctor!!!" Elongated Man and Plastic Man were never in a comic story that I recall, yet Ralph and "Eel" were played out with truly beautiful humor given the contrasts between the comics and this show.
The only "down" moment was the Outsiders; I didn't see that as an appropriate intro of the three characters, especially Katana and Metamorpho. OTOH, this isn't the same strict interpretation DCU we've come to know, so someone else may see it as great.
But even my elderly father, who read his books as a kid, thought the casting for Wildcat was absolute perfection and has started watching in hopes of more Golden Age heroes appearing.
If you only go back as far as the CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS, don't bother watching it, because you just won't "get" what the show offers.
But if you know of the earlier books, or survived the Mike Sekowsky era, you'll likely agree that this is a pretty good effort.
And curse George Lucas to Hellywood for refusing to make BLACKHAWKS. Batman: The Brave and The Bold animated series was announced at the Cartoon Network 2008-2009 upfront. The show is greenlit for at least 26 half-hour episodes. Batman: The Brave and The Bold will feature new character designs and a mix of voice actors both familiar and new to fans of the Batman. Cartoon Network's official description of the show follows:
"Batman isn't going at it alone this time! From Warner Bros. Animation comes the latest interpretation of the Batman franchise. Our caped crusader is teamed up with heroes from across the DC Universe, delivering nonstop action and adventures with a touch of comic relief. Blue Beetle, Green Arrow, Aquaman and countless others will get a chance to uphold justice alongside Batman. Though still based in Gotham, Batman will frequently find himself outside city limits, facing situations that are both unfamiliar and exhilarating. With formidable foes around every corner, Batman will still rely on his stealth, resourcefulness and limitless supply of cool gadgets to bring justice home."
James Tucker and Linda M. Steiner are producers for the series, with Sam Register acting as executive producer. Other creators include line producer Amy McKenna, story editor Michael Jelenic and directors Ben Jones, Brandon Vietti and Michael Chang. Writers for the show include Todd Casey, Jim Krieg, Steve Melching, and Matt Wayne. Andrea Romano is voice director for the show. Voice recording is currently underway.
Batman: The Brave and The Bold is currently set to premiere on Friday, November 14th, 2008 at 8 p.m. (Eastern/Pacific Time) on Cartoon Network. Diedrich Bader (The Drew Carey Show; The Zeta Project) is the voice of the Batman. Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants) will voice DC hero Plastic Man in at least one episode. John DiMaggio (Futurama's Bender) will voice Aquaman. Tom Everett Scott will be voicing of Booster Gold and Billy West is providing the voice of Skeets (reprising the roles they played in the Justice League Unlimited episode "The Greatest Story Never Told"). Also, James Arnold Taylor as Green Arrow, R. Lee Ermey as Wildcat, Will Friedle as Blue Beetle (Jaime Reyes), Will Wheaton and Phil Morris (roles not revealed at this time).
In addition, voice director Andrea Romano has said that she has every intention of using Adam West on this series as soon as she can arrange a role for him. Below is the updated list of characters scheduled to appear on Batman: The Brave and The Bold alongside Batman, in alphabetical order and divided by status.
Allies: Aquaman; The Atom; Black Canary; Blue Beetle; Booster Gold; Deadman; The Demon; Doctor Fate; Fire; Firestorm; Flash; Green Arrow; Green Lantern Corps; Guy Gardner; Jonah Hex; Huntress; Justice Society of America; Kamandi; Metamorpho; Plastic Man; Red Tornado; Robin; Skeets; Adam Strange; Wildcat.
Opponents: Black Manta; Bronze Tiger; Calendar Man; Cavalier; Clock King; Despero; Gentleman Ghost; Gorilla Grodd; Emerald Empress; Ocean Master; Kite Man; Kanjar Ro; Sportsmaster; Zebra-Man.
The list above is updated but, however, is incomplete in terms of character appearances. Producer James Tucker explained the unique structure of a typical Batman: The Brave and the Bold episode at comics news site Comic Book Resources: "[In each episode] there's a teaser the teaser is a stand-alone, mini-episode of Batman teaming up with a character," Tucker explained. "Then we'll run the main title, and after the main title, that's the main episode. And the main episode has nothing to do with the teaser for the most part. Some have a little trickle over, but for the most part the teasers are little three-minute episodes in and of themselves."Episode director Ben Jones had more to say to Comic Book Resources in a later story: As for whether or not "Batman: The Brave & The Bold" will feature long-running plots and stories worked out by the team as a whole, Jones finished by saying that even though the single-episode story style is a major influence on the show, viewers who stick with "Batman: The Brave & The Bold" week in, week out will get some different kinds of continuity.
"There's one two-parter, but aside from that, there's not a long continuing arc for the story as a whole," he said. "Individual guest stars--Blue Beetle most of all--when they return, they grow from their previous appearances as characters. Theres a little bit of personal character continuity, but theres not a lot of overall story continuity. There's a bit of an arc in the second season, but I don't know how much I can say about that." a5c7b9f00b
