As someone once said, “Everything’s better with Batman.”  As a little kid, I watched Filmations’ ‘The New Adventures of Batman‘, featuring Adam West and Burt Ward reprising their roles from Batman ’66.  I vividly remember Lou Scheimer’s voice contributions, especially his Bat-Mite, and still find great charm in the limited animation, which even my seven-year-old self could tell was cheap.  Even, so I never found it to be boring, though I preferred Olan Soule’s Super Friends Batman voice, and have used it as a yardstick against which each successive Cartoon Batman must be measured.  Thus far, none have fared worse, and Deidrich Bader is actually something like SEVEN TNAoB’s in his portrayal, leading to today’s Saturday morning query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is really fighting hard not to end today’s MS-QOTD with “and why is it ‘Batman: The Brave and The Bold”, asking: Which outing of the Caped Crusader is the best cartoon Batman?

Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
