Batman - The Brave & The Bold: "Emperor Joker"

What happens when Joker gets unlimited power?

Get ready for an amazing episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold. On Friday, October 22, at 7:30 p.m. on Cartoon Network, you will be able to see the "Emperor Joker" episode. This is the episode that was shown at San Diego Comic-Con this year.
 
You may have read the story where Joker steals Mr. Mxyzptlk's power and reshapes the world in his own twisted image. The idea is the same except we have Bat-Mite involved instead (voiced once again by Paul Reubens). You'll see in the teaser clip that Batman does wear a pink suit like he did long ago in an actual comic. Also you will see Batman die...a lot. You won't want to miss this episode. There's a certain familiar female character and also some singing. 
  

   
  
   
If those weren't enough, check out these images from the episode.

Does Harley Quinn seem a little weird to you?

Harley has always been a little weird. Batman is secure enough in his masculinity to wear pink, and I think it looks good on him.

Oh wow, I had to google that cover and found a synopsis of the story here.   It's positively ridiculous.

I loath this show, but this episode seems interesting and fun.  Might have to catch it.

@Golden Cod: That's why this show is so awesome. They pull in tons of old obscure references and characters. It's a shame this is the last season.

       No, not really.   Way I see it, possibly Joker's "vision" of her, black-and-white.

This was such an awesome show.  Too bad it's ending soon, but c'mon!  What's not to love about a pink Bat-suit?

@G-Man:  
Young Justice is going to replace Batman Brave and the bold, once it airs off right?

If you miss Harley's classic costume, don't worry; Joker forces Bat-Mite to wear it when he takes over reality.

@Emperor Gonzo Noir: This season was the final 13 episodes. This was announced at SDCC and I also interviewed Diedrich Bader about them. 
 
There will be Young Justice and Green Lantern coming. There will also be a much darker Batman cartoon coming later.

Really? I'd had read that there was supposed to be one more season then it was ending, then it was going to be replaced by the new darker Batman cartoon. I already knew that Young Justice and Green Lantern were coming anyway

I have a soundtrack from the Music Meister episode. I'm not sure if it was actually sold or just a promo copy that was sent to me.

There are so many reasons I should hate this show... but I really like it.
 
I think that Young Justice should have been a DCAU show... BRING TIMM BACK!!! [to tv... I know he's doing movies, but it isn't the same]
