Mini-Review:
"Batman: The Brave and the Bold" continues its amazing run on Cartoon Network. I have to admit that though I liked the series, I thought it might be too far out of the box to last long. The fact that it's getting a third season is pretty amazing.

The fun of this show is that it has the freedom to do literally anything it wants to. If they want to feature B-grade and C-Grade heroes and villains, they do it. If they want to be serious or comedic, they do it. If they want an episode set as a Western or a musical, it's OK. Nothing is out of bounds. This is particularly emphasized in a late Season Two episode where Batman and Robin re-team with Scooby-Doo and Weird Al Yankovic to battle Joker and Penguin (while the story is narrated by Pee-wee Herman as Bat-Mite). No other Batman series could have accomplished this in this modern day and age, so it's a real treat.

The only down side of this DVD is that it only contains half of the season and there are no bonus features. If you're a hard core "Batman: The Brave and the Bold" fan, you may want to hold out for a set with the complete series in Blu-ray. But if you can't wait or you have kids that are just going to scratch the DVDs up anyway, this is a good option.
