"Brave and The Bold" Bat-Mite News

As you may or may not know, Cartoon Network has been airing a new Batman cartoon entitled "Batman: The Brave and The Bold". As opposed to the darker take on Batman in cartoons since the 90s series (greatest cartoon ever by the way), this one has a more light hearted, Silver Age slant to it. In the tradition of its namesake, each episode sees Batman team up with another hero, or group of heroes, against a new foe. Since before the first episode of the show aired, Bat-Mite was mentioned to make an appearance. At the Batman panel during last summer's San Diego Comic Con, we got our first confirmation from Paul Dini:
He's also returning to his animation roots, having written an episode of the upcoming cartoon "Batman: The Brave and the Bold," which he said during the panel will feature Bat-Mite.
In today's Newsarama interview with the show's producer, we got a little more information about the episode:
NEWSARAMA: I was also informed Bat-Mite is coming in the future.

JT: Definitely. You know what? It’s going to be terrific. It’s going to be a fan favorite. I predict that already. It’s a great looking episode. I don’t know if I can talk about who’s voicing the Bat-Mite just yet. It will definitely be a surprise. Then again, when you hear him, everyone will go, ‘of course!’

As the first half of the first season is ending this week and next with a two parter, it looks like the second half of season one is when we'll see the episode. I for one, can't wait. If you haven't seen the cartoon yet, I highly recommend it. Each episode is just an absolute blast. And since I'm on the subject of the cartoon, the two part finale I spoke of will feature an appearance by The Joker. But not just any Joker.



That's right, the Dick Sprang Joker.

Hmmmm, everyone will go "of course"? The only person I could see fitting that description is Danny DeVito.

how cool is that Joker?

we haven't got the series over here yet in the UK. I can't wait to see it.

It's an excellent cartoon. Just a ton of fun, and perhaps the best interpretation of Aquaman ever.

YES! Aquaman was a blast!
