Those dresses are just not appropriate.

Wait ...so it's like Mel Brooks made a camp Batman musical?

Is this like the time I found that chocolate fountain that granted wishes or am I awake this time?

The Whelk - have you seen the Music Master episode?

This is really fantastic.

Wow! I'm shocked they got this to broadcast.
Good on them.

I watched this episode last night, and my jaw dropped at all the entendres. No, not even that. There was no subtext, it was all supertext.

Love it! Did that really air for kids? And no complaints from rabid parents? (The same parents who complained about Elmo and breasts?)

This makes me rethink about those fire pits of Apokolips, now.

Parents expect most female comic characters to be oversexed, objectified vamps. They don't expect *gasp* boobs on Sesame Street.

Expanding on Artw's post: try this clip from about 1:25 to see an actual Brave and the Bold musical: Neil Patrick Harris guest stars as the Music Meister, a musically hypnotic villain, and the episode is full of songs performed by hypnotized heroes and villains.

Oh yeah, Neil Patrick Harris. ARE YOU GOING TO PAY ATTENTION TO ME NOW, NERDS?

What was that Whelk was saying about a chocolate wish fountain?!

Aquaman never gets respect these days. "His little fish... less outrageous?" Meaning he's got a small dick? She-e-e-e-it. Brother needs to talk to his fish friends, have them all jump in the ocean and cause a tsunami, and wipe out these smug singing land-walking chicks talkin' shit. YOU WON'T BE LAUGHING WHEN AQUAMAN FUCKS YOUR SHIT FOR REAL, BITCHES!!!!

(Hi. I'm drunk.)

So when they say they'd like to see Batman's secret cave, are they talking about his anus?

I really enjoyed the video.

"I'd like to explore his Bat Cave!"

Yet I don't want to speculate what they expect from his utility belt.

Was there not even one Superman line?

Woman of kleenex, oddman. Do you think they really want to f*ck with that?

Aquaman in the Brave and the Bold comics is kind of a boastful jerk, dunno if that is consistant with the show.

He's doing better than the days of Superfreinds though, when they'd basically just invent something sea related for him to do each week, usually involving whales and super-strong seaweed.

I'm only annoyed at how cheap the animation looks. Lookit catwoman's face, she's frozen.

Selected lyrics:
Green Lantern has his special ring. (Pretty strong that little thing!)

Blue Beetle's deeds are really swell! (But who will bring him out of his shell?)

Flash's fo-o-o-oes! They finish last! (That's just too bad, sometimes he's just too fast!)

Green arrow has heroic traits. (That is when he's shootin' straight.)

Aquaman's always courageous! (His little fish? Less outrageous.)

Plastic Man can expand! (Becomes putty in our hands!)

Batman throws his batarang! (What a weapon, what a bang.)

Check out that utility belt! (Sure can make a girl's heart melt.)

He's always right there for the save .... (I'd like to see his secret cave!)
Of course, it's better with the catchy tune.

So, the takeaway from this is that I need to watch The Brave and the Bold.

I thought nothing would ever beat JLU. I'm very happy to be wrong. Although for innuendo you really need Superman Doomsday: half naked Lex on top of half naked Superclone, asking who the Daddy is.

Aquaman would like you to know that Batman's just a rat with wings.

Eddie Argos, of Art Brut, and other indie worthies, formed a band called Spoiler Alert! which released a 3 song ep featuring songs about Blue Beetle, Booster Gold and Batman. You can listen to the songs here.

Meister: The bullies used to pick on me because I sang in choir, But something very strange occurred when I kept singing higher. The ruffians around me quickly fell into a trance And it was then with wicked glee I made those puppets dance! I'm the Music Meister! (He's the Music Meister!) And everyone just fawns. Others: He's the Music Meister! And we are all his pawns. Meister: I'm the Music Meister! Crime became my path. Black Canary: He's the Music Meister... And we must be-ware his wrath.

Our local Comic Book Guy told me The Brave and the Bold would be appropriate for my 5-year-old to watch. I.E. not so much with the killing. True or false?

Brave and the Bold is a kid-friendly show in my opinion, even for a five year old. It's bright and colorful, with some entertaining plots, and some hilarious characters. Some of the jokes and references might go over their heads, and a couple episodes this season might be a bit scary for them, but I think in general it's probably going to be okay. There is cartoonish violence of superheroes fighting supervillains, but nothing grotesque. There has been death in the show, but usually it's the heroic kind, and fairly subtly done. Each episode usually has a moral of some kind, a la 80's cartoons.

Aquaman might not like this very much.

It has rather a lot of punching, if that is an issue.
