DC has uploaded tons of DC Nation animated shorts to YouTube Including My Little Pony creator Lauren Faust's Super Best Friends Forever (previously). Not yet included: Robert Valley's super awesome 70s Wonder Woman.

Aw, DC, why no playlists for DC Nation shorts on your YouTube channel?

I've seen some of these but not nearly enough. Is that really an Aardman short I see in that io9 post or are they just pastiching the style?

It is indeed.

The Animal Man and Amethyst shorts are so great.

I will want Shade's coat for as long as I live.

Thunder and Lightning was so sweet. I hated the art for the Wonder Woman one, but I will put with it for the bad ass car.

These shorts are all from "season one"; the Wonder Woman teaser is from the first episode of "season two" so you'll have to wait (although many of these got 'unauthorized' uploads soon after their first airing that didn't get immediately taken down). Stay tuned! Same bat-channel!

I would watch 200 episodes of 1970s Wonder Woman. I mean back to back, without pause.

Okay, I liked Animal Man and Plastic Man. I've always been a sucker for ol' Plas' in fact.

So... who else is going to SDCC this week?

Sure, just rub salt in that wound.

I will be at SDCC in spirit. Looking forwards to a particular ...thing... there.

(Meanwhile the Comics PR folk who are on my twitter feed are dreading it. NYCC is bad enough, really.)

I'm playing the Eisner Awards after party on Friday night(7th year in a row!) at the Bayside Hilton about 11pm. My son and I will go to the con on Sunday for a while.... :)

Where can I find the kickstarter / bigwig I need to bow before to get SBFF made into a full series?
posted by pulposus at 11:36 AM on July 16, 2013 [1 favorite]

SBFF would RULE as a full series. (I'm kinda annoyed that the Teen Titans Go! series isn't closer in tone/feel to these shorts. IMHO, the timing is way off on TTG (series)... sort of like in MAD, which is by the same guy.) But at least she's working on the show she's doing with Craig McCracken, "Wander Over Yonder", which I think is premiering on Disney Channel next April? So that's good for a Lauren-fix. (And I'm glad to see new stuff from Craig, too. He is super awesome as well.)

Is this the part where I break down and start crying about Young Justice?

/pours one out for The Brave and the Bold.
posted by Artw at 7:25 PM on July 16, 2013

I hated on The Brave and The Bold for a long time because 1) it wasn't B:TAS, 2) after The Batman, I was convinced that every other Batman series after TAS would suck, and 3) I do not buy Diedrich Bader as Batman. But then, one day messing around on youtube, I came across the Wonder Woman part and it was glorious. It's just straight up faithful take on 1940's Wonder Woman and it's awesome.

It's the equal of or better than BTAS. I do not say that lightly.
posted by Artw at 7:52 PM on July 16, 2013 [2 favorites]

Brave and the Bold captured the spirit of "Silver Age" DC comics better than any other TV show, including and ESPECIALLY the campy Adam West Batman series... I'm one of the few who are not particularly excited about the "Batman 1966" digital comic version. One of the most difficult (and awkwardly worded) 1000-word media analysis things I wrote was about the ebb and flow of Bats' image over the years and I regret never following up on it to include BOTH Brave and the Bold and the rest of the Dark Night trilogy (maybe even into the New 52... no, that just gets too damn confusing...)

nooneyouknow, in case that's the only BatB you've seen, it's all like that. It's the only other Batman show I can think of that actually is entirely the equal of TAS in quality -- just in an entirely different way. The show would live on just for giving us the only non-crappy version of Aquaman, like, ever.

I love Brave and the Bold Aquaman.

The comics are great reading with kids too.
