Brave & The Bold will be returning to television on the Cartoon network come up Friday 25th March 2011. One of its episodes called "Bat-Mite Presents: Batman's Strangest Cases!" will air on Friday, April 1. It will feature "three tales from Batman's lore, including Bat Boy and Rubin, an anime Batman and Batman and Robin teaming with Scooby-Doo." I like that quirky concept and would not mind seeing that DC comics' use its Bizarro Comics concept of using indie writers to tell stories online.


Here are some characters that I would not minde seeing appear on the show:


Angel and the Ape


Neil Gaiman's Death (Vertigo comics)

College students from Vertigo's Finals

The Legion Academy

Krypto the superdog, Streaky the supercat and Ace the bathound.

The original Red Tornado


Wild dog

The original Secret Six

Windy & Willy

Binky & his buddies

The characters from writer Will Pfeifer''s H-E-R-O series.

Cave Carson


Earth-2's Mr & Mrs. Superman

The Lieutenant Marvels

To name a few.

Which characters would you like to see appear on the show?

"Bat Boy and Rubin"? Would that be the old MAD spoof?

I hate to burst your bubble of joy Julian, but what the Cartoon Network plans to air are the remaining episodes of a canceled series. Warner Brothers Animation department is already working on a more "serious" Batman series to replace this one.

But if it were possible, just for laughs, I would love to see Hoppy the Marvel Bunny added to either the Lieutenant Marvels or pets (Krypto/Streaky/Ace) team up.

Presumably the current Johnny DC comic book will continue until the new series is up and running.


BY THE WAY: Does anyone know if issue 36 (Adam Strange and Lois Lane) of the last Brave and the Bold series was ever released, or was issue 35 (with the Legion of Substitute Heroes and the Inferior 5) the last?

I never saw B&B #36.

Of course they're creating another serious Batman series! Why have a sense of fun in these things? "course there was a lot of death in that version.

These new episodes coming up in late March/ early April are actually the last few episodes of season 2.  There's still an entire 13-episode third season which will start airing later in the year.


By the way, the entirety of season 2 has already aired in the UK and Australia and these episodes were up on Youtube a few weeks ago -- that Bat-Mite show was a real chore to sit through.

Thanks for the heads up on its cancellation. I am sorry that it was cancelled as I love to watch and/or read about team-ups. Another Batman series? I believe that an X-men series in anime format is in development?  Batman would be good in anime format.

I asked about the Brave and the Bold comic over here: "Brave and the Bold" -- Was it Canceled?" The consensus seems to be that it wasn't officially canceled, but they aren't making any more, either. In any event, the last issue that hit the newsstands was #35, with the Legion of Substitute Heroes and the Inferior 5

I enjoyed reading issue #35.

I quite enjoy "The Brave and the Bold", once I get past the very extreme cheesy moments.  Shame that they're stopping it... but then, once Warner got rid of the BTAS Batman (even in Justice League Unlimited) to replace it with that "The Batman" piece of CRAP, there was no question that they wanted a different audience - and probably figured that the previous audience would blindly follow.  (God in Heaven, was that "The Batman" TERRIBLE!)  Of course, a lot of these cartoons have reverted to 30 minute toy commercials... but I really miss "Justice League" and "B:TAS" and even "S:TAS".


DC and Warner did a similar dance between Young Justice and Teen Titans and back to Young Justice again, screwing up a fairly good selling book in deference to a TV show.  Actually, the same kind of occurred with Superman being dictated to by "Lois and Clark" back in the day.


As for the comic, canceling it was a mercy killing.  JMS might be a genius (although you'd have to go pretty far to prove it to me...) but that book was coughing up blood, with black spots in front of its eyes.  Did anyone else actually read that "Inferior Five/Legion of Substitute Heroes" travesty?  I hated what Fleming and Giffen did to the Subs, but at least it was a little bit funny,  This piece of dreck should never have made it past an editor's desk.  Let JMS go mess up somebody else's comics for a while.

I said this before but if JMS left the book, why not continue it with another writer? He didn't start the new series anyway. Why not convert it back into a Bat-title? There's two Batmen now so they can alternate it, plus use Robin, Red Robin, Catwoman, Batgirl, Batwoman ad infinitum!
