Batman - The Brave and the Bold
Today is a sad day for Batman fans, with the series finale of The Brave and the Bold closing a chapter on the most joyful incarnation of the character since Adam West donned the cape and cowl in the 1960s.
We sure are gonna miss Batman: The Brave and the Bold. Only a handful of episodes remain of the exuberant Cartoon Network series, and clearly there's no been no slacking off in the writers' room. This week's installment, "Triumvirate of Terror" (airing Friday, October 7 at 6/5c), is a charming and lighthearted tribute to the "Big 3" of DC Comics, with Superman and Wonder Woman teaming up with the Dark Knight. The trio meets at a diner for a meal of bacon cheeseburgers, fries and shakes while discussing what items to leave in a superhero time capsule. The fun doesn't last for long when their archenemies — the Joker, Lex Luthor and Cheetah — plan a team-up of their own. After years of futility they decide to switch ...
Cartoon Network is back in action tonight — literally. After a lengthy delay, the channel's Friday-night action shows are finally returning with original episodes. Leading off the night is Batman: The Brave and the Bold, which begins its final run of new installments, starting with "Scorn of the Star Staphire!" (originally slated to air in May), guest-starring Green Lantern and Wonder Woman (in an awesome opening segment).
Batman Brave and the Bold
NBC may have passed on its Wonder Woman pilot, but the Amazon princess is still heading to TV. The opening segment of this Friday's episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold features DC Comics' top heroine — voiced by Vicki Lewis — as she comes to the rescue of Batman and Steve Trevor (May 27, 6:30/5:30c, Cartoon Network). The endearingly campy appearance, Wonder Woman's first on The Brave and the Bold, includes her trademark invisible jet and the iconic theme song from the 1970s live-action Lynda Carter series. In the main storyline of the episode, "Scorn of the Star Sapphire," the Caped Crusader teams up with Green Lantern, a perfect warm up to next month's feature film starring Ryan Reynolds.
The ThunderCats are back!
Warner Bros. and Cartoon Network have teamed up to create an updated version of the series, based on the late-1980s animated classic, set to debut later this year.

Batman and Superman
It's the superhero smackdown that will have comic-book fans salivating: Superman vs. Batman. When Batman: The Brave and the Bold returns with new episodes this Friday (March 25, 6:30/5:30c on Cartoon Network), the Caped Crusader heads to Metropolis to help the Man of Steel take down Lex Luthor in a team-up of the so-called "world's finest" heroes. But when Superman gets mysteriously infected with red kryptonite he becomes a power-hungry egomaniac. It's up to Batman — with an assist from Krypto the Superdog! — to subdue Superman until the red-k wears off.
Scooby-Doo and Batman
It's a reunion nearly 40 years in the making when Scooby-Doo and his gang team up with the Dark Knight on a delightfully bizarre episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold, airing Friday, April 1 (6:30/5:30c on Cartoon Network). Written by animation and comic book vet Paul Dini and hosted by Paul "Pee-wee Herman" Reubens (who reprises his role as Bat-Mite, a self-described "all-powerful being ...
