Batman: The Brave and the Bold (also known as Brave/Bold) is an American animated television series based in part on the DC Comics "team-up" series The Brave and the Bold. Like the comic series, it features two or more super heroes coming together to solve a crime or foil a super villain, but unlike the current comic, the cartoon focuses on Batman working with the different heroes.

The series premiered on November 14, 2008 at 8:00pm (eastern), on Cartoon Network, during the Friday night block, You Are Here.[1] One episode, "The Mask that Matches Malone", was omitted from Season 2’s lineup in the North America due to double entendres lurking in the song "Birds of Prey". When released on iTunes in 2011, part of the sequence is cut, making it less inoffensive to the appropriate audiences.

Overview

Each episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold features main character Batman (In the form of his silver age persona teaming up with other characters from the DC Universe to thwart characters or solve crimes. The show has no overarching story, instead having most episodes stand alone.[2]

The show is purposely lighter in tone than previous Batman series, such as the critical and fan favorite Batman.[3] Batman is depicted as more lighthearted and playful in this series and he displays a dry, ironic wit. [4] Also, Batman's alter ego Bruce Wayne will never appear in the show. [4]
