TELEVISION: Beware the Batman No Longer on the Air


You may have noticed that Beware the Batman wasn’t on your list of shows this week. That’s because the show isn’t on Cartoon Network anymore.  Weird, huh? Beware the Batman began airing just over three months ago, and already it’s been yanked.

When asked, Cartoon Network, simply responded with “Currently, ‘Beware the Batman’ is no longer on our air. DC Nation will continue on Saturday mornings at 10/9c with new exclusive shorts and a full hour of encore episodes of ‘Teen Titans Go!’”

There were reports that the show would return in January, but we haven’t been able to confirm this. Someone close to the show did mention to me a few weeks ago that he was currently between projects.

I was only able to watch an episode or two, and ratings may have played a part in the show being removed. Then again, I haven’t seen any Beware the Batman toys in the toy aisle at our local store, and we’ve seen how networks yank animated series when the toy line doesn’t produce.
