This episode just proves to me that Silver Age fits Superman soooooooo much better than Batman.

Silver Age stuff was great but the Dark Knight Returns tribute/homage was done better by B:TAS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QoZLPwRCjcQ

OTOH, it's always fun to see an armored Batman kicking Superman in the face.

Correct on both points. :)

Curt Swan is the fucking man when it comes to Superman illustrations, and I'm honored to have met him and shook his hand and thanked him before he passed. :bow

Cartoon Network UK shows this, Regular Show and Adventure Time back to back daily. FUCK YEAH

This episode is brilliant. I'm too young/out of touch with comics to truly appreciate the superdickery callbacks (although the idea of a superhero putting a cat UP a tree can always be understood), but stuff like the brutal Batman/Superman fight was so cool.

The Batman had some weird animation. I remember praising it for its story and dark feel but I saw an episode two days ago randomly and I was taken aback at how bad it looked.

But, I must watch more of The Brave and the Bold. Cartoon Network is slaying in the Cartoon genre. Young Justice, Brave and the Bold, Adventure Time, Regular Show? Cot damn.

Never expected DC to ever acknowledge Superdickery, let alone six years after the meme peaked.

Is this episode available online anywhere? I definitely need to check it out when I get home.

CN is just disappointing to me animation-wise, they didn't fight for or cancelled Spectacular Spiderman, Boondocks or SymBionic Titan or Brave and the Bold but at least Brave and the Bold will get a decent ending unlike the others

This was easily the best episode of Brave and the Bold, as I said in the official thread, this should have been the series finale because no episode will top this.

Yeah, pages from a monthly comic that take a person a day or so apiece to draw have more attention to detail than a a single frame from a weekly cartoon that requires thousands of cels per episode.

It's a real-head-scratcher.

Bat-mite mentioned that back in the day, Batman couldn't throw a punch -- so he rectifies it!

How did I miss this episode? Cartoon Network should have multiple airings of BB&B.

Brave and the Bold is everything that has ever been good about every single version of Batman rolled up into 22 minute bits of brilliance. And above and beyond that, it's also dedicated to taking all of the lemons of DC history and making lemonade out of them. Watch it.
