The lighter Dark Knight returns
Last week’s episode of Batman: the Brave and the Bold was both a subtle kick in the nuts to militant fanboys who decry the cartoon’s playfulness and want a return to the tortured-soul Batman and also a dead-on tribute to classic Warners Brother’s animation. There’s a bunch of in-jokes for animation heads, comics fanboys and general casual cartoon watchers and, depending on where you’re coming from, the episode works on several different levels. Mainly though it’s great fun and it really shows how far cartoons have fallen off in recent years. Watch along after the jump.
