Batman: The Brave and the Bold returns to Cartoon Network tonight at 6:30 p.m. with a story featuring Superman, Lois, Jimmy, Mr. Mxyzptlk, Krypto, Luthor, Brainiac, Kandor, red kryptonite, and even Giant Turtle Olsen!
Sounds very Silver Agey!
ARGGGHHH! I missed it! I didn't think to check in time. And since this was a new thread rather than extension of one I'd commented on, I didn't get an e-mail that would've alerted me. Rats!
I don't think they're rerun during the week (or appear on Comcast's On Demand, darn the luck). I've really got to remember to set up to record it. I've missed a lot of them by now, I think. If anyone sees a rerun slot, let me know.
It was a real winner! Nearly every Silver Age Superman plot device was used. Superman was exposed to red kryptonite and turned into a jerk, making room for them to use a bunch of scenes from SA covers that showed Superman being a jerk! They switched the attempts to discover Superman's secret identity from Lois to Jimmy, but otherwise it was like watching an animated Mort Weisinger comic. I can't believe they crammed so much into 20 minutes and still made it make sense.
My favorite jerk moment was when Superman picked up the Kandor bottle, shook it a little bit, and exclaimed "earthquake."
You're not making me feel any better about missing it.
