The show follows the format of The Brave and The Bold comics of my youth: team-ups between Batman and another hero. Some of them are no-brainers, some are inspired wackiness, like Detective Chimp or Bat-Mite; just like the old comics. Though the stories have a lighter tone, they still have serious elements. Death has been addressed more than once, so have relationships. Much like the classic Looney Tunes cartoons, there are elements for kids and elements for adults. It's also nice to see the various easter eggs for fans, whether it is a Batcave entrance that recalls the Adam West series, or a Batcomputer that looks a lot like the old Filmation cartoons, or just a nod to the opening of BTAS. Then, there are the wonderful appearances by even obscure characters. Not only do we get to see fan favorite characters, like the Teen Titans or Red Tornado; we also get to see cult characters, like the Challengers of the Unknown and Bronze Tiger, as well as the really obscure ones, like Detective Chimp, B'Wanna Beast, and Ambush Bug.
If you are fan of comics, there is plenty to love, just keep your sense of humor intact. If you have never read a comic, there is plenty of action and adventure, with engaging characters and great voicework. If you want a good laugh, you'll find that too. And if you enjoy song and dance numbers, there are even a few of those on hand! So, where else can you find a brooding avenger who can still throw out a quip, a collection of guest stars from the inspiring to the bizarre, and the best showcase for musical numbers since the heyday of MGM?
