Please ignore that bit about Wonder Woman eating a sandwich, it really isn’t worth your time.  However, this weekend, when DC Nation launches on Cartoon Network, be on the lookout for Super Best Friends Forever, a series of shorts starring Supergirl, Wonder Woman and Batgirl.

Though some of the shorts feature big names like Superman and Batman, many will put the spotlight on “characters we’ve always wanted to see animated, but that might not be able to support a whole series,” says Peter Giardi, senior vice president at Warner Bros. Animation, which is coordinating the block.  Among the second-tier characters featured are Black Lightening, Doctor Fate, the Doom Patrol and even Vibe, a short-lived Latino member of the Justice League in the ’80s.

A humorous tone runs through all the shorts, including S.B.F.F. (short for Super Best Friends Forever), which stars Batgirl, Supergirl and Wonder Girl and “has plenty of action and fighting, but is really much more focused on comedy and laughs and how much fun it is to be a superhero,” says producer Lauren Faust.  “It’s like taking a teenage experience but putting a superhero spin on it, in one episode, Supergirl and Batgirl try to convince Wonder Girl to sneak out in Wonder Woman’s invisible jet to go for a joyride.”  Guess even supergirls just wanna have fun.

    I wish I knew which shorts were airing when (my DVR only lists the two main shows on DC Nation), but this has me excited enough I’m willing to risk exposure to Young Justice in the hopes of catching it.

    Donna looks anorexic compared to Kara — I like that Kara has muscular legs!
