BATMAN creator Bob Kane's Parody of His Dynamic Duo
17 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We remember well when the first COURAGEOUS CAT cartoon appeared on our TV screen. It was totally unheralded, inasmuch as no one had heard of the feature. There was, as far as we knew, no review of it in TV Guide nor in any of the dailies' television sections.

C.C. may have been unknown, but it was totally obvious to anyone that we were viewing a sort of parody of Batman,a character whom those in our clan were all too well acquainted.

COURAGEOUS CAT was a very standard TV cartoon, not unlike the type that were all over Saturday mornings and noon time kids lunch shows at the time. The animation was a limited type, the episodes must have been 5-7 minutes each. They were formula, what with C.C. and his assistant, Minute Mouse, pursuing the perpetrators of bank robberies, burglaries, etc., using the Catmobile for super fast pursuit of criminal element. The Episodes were not Serialized, each being a complete story unto itself.*

They even had a recurring enemy known as the Frog, who had an Edward G. Robinson type voice. If memory serves properly, they had an exciting chase type theme music (which was somewhat similar to the PETER GUNN theme.)

While there were many other cartoon features around in those days, COURAGEOUS was the only one to parody the Batman-type, non super-powered costumed crime fighters, and a memorable job was done.

This should come as no surprise to anyone for it was Batman Creator, Bob Kane, who also came up with COURAGEOUS CAT.

NOTE:* There may have been some 2 part adventures, but not the long serialized type of story as seen on Rocky & Bullwinkle or Crusader Rabbit.
