Batman: Brave & The Bold - "Sidekicks Assemble" Images & Clips

Can the sidekicks fight Ra's al Ghul on their own?

You can expect quite a few guest stars on the next episode of  Batman: The Brave and the Bold.  Airing tonight, Friday, January 22 at 7:30 pm on Cartoon Network, "Sidekicks Assemble" will feature many familiar faces.

Aqualad, Robin and Speedy have had it with being bossed around and demand a piece of the action, but they get more than they bargained for when they find themselves facing off against Ra's Al-Ghul and his flying island!

One of the interesting things with Brave and the Bold is when we see the different characters.  They're familiar to us but have a slightly different background than what we might be used to.  Warner Bros. has sent us a bunch of images and some video clips.  Check them out to see what you have to look forward to.
(Click each image to enlarge):

With the three video clips, each runs around 30 seconds. There seems to be a glitch on our player where it stalls at the end and keeps loading. Just move on to the next video.
That's an interesting sword Batman has there.  Must be a special type since he can just pull it out of his utility belt.  Also, I know there's been discussion before, not how Ra's al Ghul's name is mentioned here.

This. Looks. BADASS.
It's funny, because I spent my morning watching the episodes on demand and wondered why I haven't really heard about any new episodes.
Hopefully there's a whole lot of Speedy action in this episode.

This Aqualad looks different than the one in Aquaman's vacation ep.

@They Killed Cap!:  
Apples and Oranges.  The two series are nothing alike, but its still very clear that the people behind tB&tB aren't just slapping together a series of team-ups to cash in on Batman's popularity.  The writers clearly know their silver-age material.  And while there is some degree of camp, the humor is often smart (certainly a step ahead of what you'd find on disney).

didn't like the art so never really got into it

I just found out that Mark Hamill (previous joker) , Julie Newmar (former catwoman) , and Adam West (former batman) are going to be in "Chill of the Night" with Kevin Conroy.

Loved the episode, not really a fan of Brave and the Bold but this was good, I just wish they gave Nightwing a cooler costume, I don't like the one they gave him in this episode.

and wondergirl?

I want batgirl to be in this cartoon so badly.

I didn't like this episode as much some of the others.  Of course, I've never been a huge fan of the Teen Titans, so that probably had something to do with it. 
I'll say the best part of the episode, for me, was the opening shot of the Justice League, including Superman, Wonder Woman, Martian Manhunter, the Flash and a beardless Aquaman.

The videos are choppy.

"Just watched the episode - awww, yeah...Titans! Where was Wally?..."  
Apparently there will be a  "Untitled Flash Legacy Episode" according to Wikipedia. The synopsis says it is "An episode containing Zoom, who battles three Flashes: Jay Garrick, Barry Allen, and Wally West."    There is no official citation for it, but it sounds believable seeing as how Barry Allen made a cameo at the beginning of this episode. Also on the Wikipedia episode it says there will also be a "Untitled Doom Patrol Episode" which means we might also have Beast Boy soon enough. I definetely forsee the Teen Titans forming officially either this season or the next.

Where's Wally? 
Y'know, its funny.  I picked up a copy of Showcase: The Flash from my local library.  Unlike Batman and Robin, Wally didn't actually spend much time with Barry once he had superpowers.  He spent his days beating up hippies and hot-rodders, usually acting solo.
