I now have a new favorite cartoon ever.

DAMN YOU JOSS WHEDON!

In your quest for post modern perfection, you have inadvertantly resurrected
the non-ironic musical.

DAMN YOU!

Between that and FIREFLY, I have much less to hate you for.

/But he did give us DOLLHOUSE, so the balance is restored.

I'm falling off the NPH bandwagon. Thud. There. I'm off.

It's a great cartoon--just don't watch the Aquaman episodes. Really awful.

Neil Patrick Harris is officially starting to wear out his hip factor in a big way. This is just stupid.

Where was the good part? Are they trying to appeal to the showtunes crowd?

Good thing it's a cartoon episode aimed at kids, and any enjoyment adults may get is incidental, amiright?

Saw it three weeks ago on Teletoon (Canadian CN). Was seriously unimpressed although it has been some-what earwormy.

That made me wish I'd been stricken with temporary deafness.

It's funny how anybody who ever worked with Joss Whedon is automatically praised by people who worship Joss Whedon. None of them seem to be able to admit that anything any Whedon alumnus does is bad. Why is that?

Look... I loved Sam Raimi's EVIL DEAD, EVIL DEAD II, and ARMY OF DARKNESS, and have spoken to Bruce Campbell as a fan from the beginning (before EVIL DEAD even reached VHS), but even I can admit that Bruce Campbell has done some stinker roles in his time, and Sam Raimi has made some horrible career missteps (Spider-Man 3, especially) which caused me to feel nothing but revulsion for that particular work.

I like NPH-- Not because of Doctor Horrible (I actually thought it was kind of dumb), but because he seems like a genuinely good guy who knows how to bank on his kitschy, cheesy nostalgia factor, and that's cool. However, this (like most of The Brave and the Bold) is bad. Stinky bad.

To each their own, but I really must ask: Do you like this because it's NPH, and NPH has a tie to Whedon? Or do you like it because it stands on its own as a clever, entertaining performance?

And that's the target market for this cartoon. It does have some elements for adults (mostly reminiscing about the last time we've seen THAT character before) but it's definitely skewed to a young audience. It falls somewhere between The Animated Series & the 60s TV show. Although it does tend to slide closer to the latter more often.

Actually, the very first episode of B:TB&TB I saw was the Aquaman vs Ocean
Master, and it was precisely the WTF? factor of making Aquaman a broadly
character puffy chested HERO!!!!!! (cue angelic chorus) that appealed to me.

To each their own.

I like it because it's NPH and it's Batman:Brave & the Bold. I've already described my opinion of the series in general. I've been watching it since it started and, although it has had some MAJOR missteps, I genuinely like it. Now you add NPH into the mix, whom I've liked since Stark Raving Mad, and for me it's pure win. However, as a stand-alone, clever performance, it's not very good at all. I just like it for the cheese factor.

I actually keep forgetting that Whedon did Dr. Horrible. I like Whedon, but more for Buffy & his X-Men run a few years back than anything else. Never saw Firefly or Dollhouse.

You said alot in this statement. But i choose to simply agree that Spiderman three was the worst movie of all time.

I'm not too hip on the new Batman or, for example, Tiny Heroes, but then again they're not for me are they? They're for my kids. Why should I deny my kids their own bit of joy in learning about the respective pantheons simply because I'm not the targeted demographic?

I watched the clip and read the comments. I got up to piss and started singing the song. Now it'sa going like a Busby Berkley number on loop in my head. I've learned two things- bad music will stick in your head like a rusty hatchet when you are stoned and it is possible to make super heroes even gayer.

I agree with everything except for pigeonholing the fans of this video as Whedon fanatics. Some people just like this quirky, innocent brand of creativity.

I love stuff like Dr. Horrible, Sweeney Todd, the South Park movie, and Jesus Christ Superstar for injecting theatrical music into otherwise morbid topics, but yeah, this video was lamer than Spiderman 3

Subby: you want to own a website that hosts flash videos of cartoons voiced by B-grade actors? Odd, that.

Yeah its bad - but thats because I'm 27. I'm sure if I was 8 this would be a fantastic musical number. But I still like it, because they managed to sneak in a few really great Batman references. "Shark repellent" the "Battoosie", thats good stuff!
