Robot Chicken DC Comics Special DVD Preview

Robot Chicken DC Comics Special Blu-Ray/DVD Releases on Tuesday, July 9, 2013

The first thing you notice when you watch the Robot Chicken DC Comics Special DVD is the menu has the original theme from CHALLENGE OF THE SUPERFRIENDS (debut: Sept. 9, 1978) playing in a loop, which was the first time the Legion of Doom was introduced in the Saturday Morning Cartoons we all loved as kids. If you didn’t have the chance to see the RCDC Special when it debuted on Adult Swim last September, the menu immediately identifies which version of the JLA/Superfriends they are lampooning on the DVD. Thank GOD! Thankfully, we weren’t put through the ringer with Marvin, Wendy, Wonderdog, the Wonder Twins or Gleek. In “Challenge of the Superfriends”, we weren’t distracted by lame characters thrown in for comic relief, and we were able to focus on the fact that Robin and Aquaman really don’t contribute a whole lot to the Justice League’s successes.

Warner Bros. releases Batman: The Brave and the Bold Season One: Part Two DVD

Warner Bros. releases Batman: The Brave and the Bold Season One: Part Two DVD

Just a few short weeks ago, On March 15th, Warner Home Video did us all a very special favor: it continued what will, no doubt, be amongst a super hero fans favorite collections, Cartoon Network’s Batman: The Brave and the Bold. The latest DVD compilation, appropriately titled Batman: The Brave and the Bold Season One: Part Two, packs in 13 episodes from the not-so Dark Knight’s adventures. The downfalls? Well, WB sure did take their time releasing this one. Oh, and there’s no Blu-ray option. And if you’re looking for extras of any kind, you’ll surely be let down. But hey, at least it collects one of the greatest toons on TV, and most varied interpretation of Batman yet! Plus, a musical episode featuring Neil Patrick Harris as The Music Meister! Score! (pun!)
