Recently, site head honcho Stephen Schleicher reported that Cartoon Network’s Beware the Batman was no longer on the air. He noted that some rumors have been circulating that the animated show might return in January.
Sound familiar to anyone?
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.
Alfred has recruited a new driver and bodyguard for Bruce Wayne and he is trying to figure out just who she is in this clip from the upcoming episode of Beware the Batman!
Beware the Batman will air its second episode this Saturday on the Cartoon Network and fans of previous Batman cartoons will hear a familiar voice when Batgirl enters the screen as Tara Strong has announced she will once again be voicing Barbra Gordon.
So the new Batman series arrived this past weekend, featuring the character designs of one Thomas Perkins (hint: he’s the fellow that designed our Critical Hit t-shirts).
Batman works to stop eco-terrorists Professor Pyg and Mister Toad from taking their revenge over a shady land deal done by Simon Stagg and Michael Holt. Meanwhile, an aging Alfred hires his replacement: a female bodyguard named Katana. When Alfred is accidentally captured by Professor Pyg and Mister Toad when they were targeting Bruce Wayne, Batman must work to save the captives and defeat Professor Pyg and Mr. Toad.
