I know people give Batman: The Brave and The Bold a lot of slack (its cheesy, its silly, we want Bruce Timm back!) But actually its the most Bat-fan friendly show ever just look:
- It purposely takes the whole excuse "He's Batman," and uses it as a concept. Seriously look at "The Night of The Bat-men," that totally explores that idea "How does he do it!"
- It alludes to Golden Age Batman a lot, "Golden Age of Justice," we see Batman getting trained by the JSA in this costume. He also keeps The Golden Age Batmobile as a "spare."
- Frank Miller gets a far too many call outs from Bat-mite altering Batman's suit in "Legends of Bat-mite," to TDKR suit and yelling "Too psycho!" Plastic man also does this and claims that its "far too brooding." Batman also wears Frank Miller style armour when he must fight Superman in "The Battle of the Superheroes." And Batman also gives a shout out to "Frankie Miller," when the JLI is playing against the LOD. The mutants also appear in "The Knights of Tomorrow."
- Bane attempts to break Batman's back in the teaser of "Menance of Conqueror Caveman".
- Batman must face off against Owlman, the Crime Syndicate of America's Batman while allied himself with The Red Hood aka Joker aka how the Joker origin story in the comics.
- The entire episodes with Bat-mite explores Batman's place within pop-culture and every aspect of his constant reinventions from fan boys wanting a "gritty crime fighter," at a comic-con no less to Bat-mite showing all his favourite versions of Batman: Japanese Batman to his appearance in Scooby Doo! To Bat-mite announcing that he voted for Jason Todd's death and to him destroying the show simply because he wants a newer version of Batman, gritty and so forth.
- The Zebra Batsuit, the multi-coloured Batsuit and the jungle Batsuit all make appearances.
- "Chill of the Night," is a homage to BTAS and includes Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill as the Phantom Stranger and The Spectre, as well as Adam West and Juile Newar appearing as the Waynes.
- In the Knights of Tomorrow episode, Batman and Catwoman get married just as they did on Earth 2 comics and have a son called Damien, who is actually Talia and Bruce's son in the comics.
- Bruce Wayne uses in other alter ego, Matches Malone in "The Mask of Matches Malone."
- Dick Grayson appears as Nightwing at one point, seventies disco suit.
- Batman of Zur-En-Arrh also appears in the "The Super-Bat of Planet X."
If you see show add more or let's just discuss that it was incredibly Bat-fan friendly!
