Well I was so happy to hear that Batman: The Brave And The Bold is going to continue even though I thought it was over that of-course I went over to the torrents and got the episodes I wanted to see through Pirated means because this show does not air in Holland. :P
I think the episode Bat-Mite Presents: Batman's Strangest Cases! with Bat-Mite is one of the most fun ones yet. Especially the Bat Manga cartoon adaptation which is pretty much the only reason I'm putting down this blog lol. And that's because just like with the Teen Titan movie I am once again one of the few who sees the references to old material that every one who isn't in the same fandom as me don't really notice.
 
This time the first thing I saw was the opening which was very obvious to me in the first go:
Yeah pretty cheesy but watching this I immediately saw and sadly also heard what it was based on.
The imagery is based on one of the first Japanese super heroes anime ever to hit the US 8-man. But as mentioned before the Japanese version of the 8-man opening that is. Which has lots of guns and things crashing. And also a homage to the first Superman cartoon with the outrunning a train thing.  

    The title screens are really alike don't they?

But sadly because of that some things just add up in Bat manga version

   For someone with at least Flash-level speeds this is believable

    But when Bruce does it, it just doesn't look that possible any more. Unless he was already in the car that is lol

Sadly enough... The cheesy music is from the American version! Tobor the 8th Man 
Which has a newly added childishly censured opening mv. And it makes 8-Man look like Superman instead of a robotic Flash which is basically as the Nostalgia Critic puts it:
But that's not all I noticed though I am a little sad that there's not more put in to it. :) 
Sadly the only other thing I really noticed was that Lord Deathman is based on Ogon Bat:

 Lame name but he's still based on the good ol' Ogon Bat

Almost the same guy but he's mortal and has no other powers then Yoga training.

The Two Other Instalments

MAD: Batboy and Rubin
The MAD cartoon flick was boring and not funny IMO. I read it in the Dutch copy a long time ago. It was not funny then and it isn't now. Though It was a valiant try and I'm pretty sure I'm just in that small group of people who don't find it funny and that there's probably a whole group of people who do find it funny. 

 You guys suck!

New Scooby Doo Team-up

 A death trap! Hell yeah! Suck it Hana-Barbera!

This is the other flick I really liked. I watched both team-ups between the old series on the original Cartoon Network (R.I.P) and some things where always a miss with those two. Normally The Joker could and would have easily killed Scooby and Mystery INC like it was just another day. But in those two specials it came up really short as both the Penguin and him where just.... PUSSIES! And that's why I thank Bat-Imp for doing this:

 Thank you for this Bat-Imp! FINALLY some action! xD
