Batman: The Brave and the Bold

Right, it's been a long time I started getting interested watching comic superheroes on TV. Last time, our local TV's (with the exception of cable channels) aired Justice League and Teen Titans on Studio 23. Last time, I think that TV station aired The Batman. Few years later, when TV5 aired Cartoon Network shows I dunno why I got hooked with the new Batman series which called Batman: The Brave and the Bold every weekday afternoons.

Cartoon Network came up with another Batman series after the previous one which was aired in Studio 23. As I watched the Brave and the Bold, I got excited with the stories and it's edgy but smooth animation. Check out Batman's costume, he's got blue design similar to Adam West in 60's version of Batman live-action. What's new on that show is that he's got one or two other superheroes from DC heroes to help Batman solve a lot of mysteries and crimes (although Batman thinks he doesn't need them a lot sometimes). There's also a lot of villains from other DC comics but there are few episodes where you'll see Batman's enemies like the Joker and the Penguin.

Every episode, before the opening theme song there's a trouble and Batman comes to get things right along with his superhero ally but viewer's will soon realize that's not the focus in the main story. Few good things about The Brave and The Bold is that the stories and scenes are kid-friendly and enjoyable. The scripts are good and not so boring. Batman thinks that Gotham City is safe while he's busy solving cases in other remote areas, right?. One great thing I observed in the show is Batman's point of view. He analyzes his partner's strengths and weaknesses and Batman tells that person what is wrong then gives advice like a mentor. In the end of every episodes, there goes moral ending like friendship, acceptance or respect another superheroes' ability - a truly great example for kid viewers.

What I dislike about the show is that you'll hear few innuendos kids won't understand but thank goodness I watch the show on TV5 which means it's on Tagalog-dub. Then again, when you watch Batman: The Brave and The Bold you'll think that you've seen many superheroes that appear in silver or golden age comic books. Since it's on Cartoon Network, the show aimed for young viewers.
