The tone of the stories takes a cue from the breezy jazzy score and from the look of this Batman, his design decidedly inspired from how he was drawn back in the Silver Age, an era in which Batman stories leaned towards the lighthearted. This Batman is pretty chill. He doesn't mind engaging in banter. He even indulges in unashamed alliteration. Where else can you hear Batman throw out over-the-top lines like: "The Hammer of Justice is unisex!" or "Good work, guys. Justice wins the day, thanks to the Brave and the Bold." The Tick should take notes.
I still got love for Kevin Conroy, but Diedrich Bader is fantastic as the voice of Batman. He's got that good timbre. Granted, I was momentarily out of sorts because, for a while, every time Batman spoke I kept thinking of that borderline creepy (and yet hilarious) character Bader plays in OUTSOURCED.
The episodes are uniformly stand-alone, each kicking off with a teaser segment which often has nothing to do with the main storyline. Two exceptions are "The Color of Revenge!" and "Mayhem of the Music Meister!" What sets this Batman series apart from the other ones in the past is that the premise opens it up to the entire DC universe, instead of being confined only to the Batman mythos.Read more ›
feet, putting these shows on dvd. But rather, 4 stars to the
show itself. I'm a "HUGE" fan of Batman: The Animated Series.
However, you simply can't compare that show with Brave And The
Bold. This newest incarnation of Batman pays homage to the Batman
of the early to late 60s. The character designs are also evident
tribute to that of Batman creator, Bob Kane and Dick Sprang (*this show's Joker
is definately fasioned after Sprang's classic design*)
In addition to those Golden age Batman comics, there's also
repeated nods to the Adam West television series of the same
time period. (*Robin's holy this and that, the Shakespear bust,
the hidden batpoles, Batcave atomic pile, Joker's giant
clam, ect, ect*)
The show's writers are clever and the show's toungue and
cheek humor is outstanding. And just when you thought that
Kevin Conroy was the only man in the world to do Batman's voice,
you're then introduced to Diedrich Bader's outstanding
Batman. Anyway, a show that should not be missed.
We are all comic book fans(thus my name..golden age superman) and it has been a great pleasure to see the spotlight on some of DC's lesser known characters. The stories are well written, extremely humorous and action packed. While all the shows are great, if I had to pick my top two from this DVD, they would be:"Mystery in Space!"...Batman and Aquaman go to the planet Rann to help Adam Strange, and "Mayhem of the Music Meister!" is a truly unique portrayal of a number of DC heroes and villains, as they battle under the lyrical mind controlling tones of the Music Meister.
I am a fan of the 90's Batman animated show, and while it is a strong series in its own right, this one tops it in my book. Both series are strong and stand on their own merits. They are two ends of the spectrum on how Batman has been portrayed through the years. I highly recommend this series for young and old alike who want to see a high quality animated series, whether you are a Batman fan or not.
The more copies of this set that sell, the higher the chance becomes that we get a full season collection in HD, or even (gasp) see Warner Brothers do the right thing and release the rest of the series without wasting everyones time by forcing us to buy or ignore their ridiculous single disc releases. Please support this excellent, underrated show, and buy this set.
