I thought I would skip to Holiday Knights just because tis the season.


TNBA Episode: Holiday Knights

http://kane52630.tumblr.com/post/685...man-adventures








Trivia
Quote:
  • While the girls are shopping, the music being played is based on "The Twelve Days of Christmas".
  • The three late-night revelers singing "Auld Lang Syne" in the tavern are caricatures of Bruce Timm, Glen Murakami, and Shane Glines.
  • The Joker's lines in the videotape message were re-animated and re-voiced for an appearance in Bruce's records in Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker.
  • The football game that Joker's message interrupts features a commentator naming one of the players as "Altieri", a reference to Kevin Altieri. In the comic, the player was called Starkings, after penciller Richard Starkings.
  • The episode begins and ends in the same place, Joe's Tavern, which is opposite the Gotham Hotel where Harley and Ivy are staying.
  • This marks the first appearance of Mo, Lar and Cur, though they lack their Stooge-like voices here.
  • This also marks the last time in the DCAU—until the Justice League episode "Maid of Honor"—where Bruce Wayne speaks in a noticeably different tone than his alter-ego.
  • Some of the women seen attempting the kiss Bruce under the mistletoe were previously seen in Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, most notably "Ms. Bambi".
  • The crack in the bell after it lands on Joker is likely a reference to the Liberty Bell.
  • Tara Strong replaces Melissa Gilbert as the voice of Batgirl.
  • The sign at the tie stall at Mayfields reads "Mayfieds"; the "l" is missing.
Quote:
  • This episode was adapted from the Batman Adventures Holiday Special, cover date January 1995. Notable differences include:
    • The comic is still in the style of Batman: The Animated Series;
    • The comic includes a story that was not adapted to the episode, "White Christmas", featuring Mr. Freeze. After the death of his wife, Freeze breaks out of Arkham. When Batman finally captures him at the cemetery, he tells him he only wanted to make a white Christmas, because she loved snow.
    • In the comic, there is a clear reference that Harley is Jewish.
    • In the comic, the story featuring Batgirl and Clayface (entitled "Jolly Ol' St. Nicholas") precedes the story featuring Harley and Ivy ("The Harley and the Ivy").
    • In the comic story "Jolly Ol' St. Nicholas", Barbara enters an empty dressing room to change into her Batgirl costume; in the episode, she ducks behind an abandoned counter. Interestingly, Bruce Timm and Paul Dini's original script for the comic had Barbara changing her clothes in the middle of the panicking crowd, trusting that no one would notice her. The publisher firmly vetoed this idea as too indecent, so instead she used an empty dressing room. The animated version seems to represent a compromise, with Barbara changing between clothing aisles, still out in the open somewhat, but mostly obscured.
    • The animated adaptation of the Joker story ("...What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?!") replaces three nameless goons with Mo, Lar and Cur.
    • Robin was originally not part of the Joker story.

Batman and a Christmas setting or at least a winter setting are like bread and butter.

Happy Birthday to Kevin Conroy and Efrem Zimbalist Jr. who has just turned the ripe old age of 95.

BTAS Episode: Harlequinade

http://kane52630.tumblr.com/post/691...nimated-series








Trivia

Quote:
  • The Joker's plane bears a strong resemblance to a Handley-Page Type O bomber, right down to having the same machineguns.
  • Harley Quinn admits in this episode that: "And here you thought I was just another bubble-headed blonde bimbo! Well, the joke's on you: I'm not even a real blonde".
  • When Harley starts blanking on the names of their fellow inmates at Arkham, she calls them "Lizard Man" (Killer Croc), "Hat Guy" (Mad Hatter), and "Puppet-head" (Ventriloquist).
  • When Joker and Harley embrace in the end, Joker says to Harley "baby, you're the greatest". That is a spoof of the endings of The Honeymooners, when Ralph and his wife embrace in the end after their relationship getting back to normal.
  • "Say That We're Sweethearts Again" was written by Earl Brent and first appeared in the 1944 film Meet the People.
  • The piano player appears to resemble Fred Astaire.
  • There are several cartoonish gags in the episode, including Joker's parachute opening after the plane has crashed. This gag previously appeared in "The Strange Secret of Bruce Wayne".
  • Mayor Hill's home closely resembles the house the Joker purchased in the episode Joker's Millions. Both houses are similar to the headquarters of the Justice Guild.
  • Like in "The Laughing Fish", the end of this episode displays the Joker's unexplained ability to cheat death, shown when his plane crashes directly into Mayor Hill's mansion, yet he merely emerges from a nearby door, completely unharmed, even though he was in the seat nearest to the plane's front.
  • The quote "How about a ha hacienda?" would be used by the Joker himself in Batman: Arkham Asylum.

Been watching a lot of episodes on the HUB channel lately. I wish they'd have the gall to bring this show back and start making new episodes.

Me too.

Wouldn't be the same without Shirley Walker though. But man, what I still would've give for that to happen.

Isn't it off HUB now?

I don't think it's airing on TV at all now.

As far as I know, it was airing on HUB up until at least 2 weeks ago. I set my DVR to record every episode of BTAS and STAS a few months ago so my DVR's been racking them up.

Aw yeah, well they took it off the air at the start of the month and replaced it with Transformers Animated.

At least they still have Superman: TAS and Batman Beyond.

BTAS Episode: Bane

http://kane52630.tumblr.com/post/701...nimated-series









Trivia
Quote:
  • This episode marks the first animated appearance of Bane, and his only appearance in Batman: The Animated Series.
  • The second and final appearance of Candace, Thorne's assistant.
  • This episode marks the final appearance of Killer Croc on Batman: The Animated Series.
  • Bane's comic version wears a full-face mask, but the animated version wears a similar mask that exposes his nose and mouth.
  • The producers originally didn't like Bane because they felt he was a gimmick character.
  • This is the only time in the DCAU that Bane's true face is seen; the episode makes a joke of it, making Bane's face so boyish that nobody could possibly be scared of it.
  • When Alfred hands Bruce the paper with Thorne's name on it, the text underneath is taken from chapter 3 of Joseph Sheppard's "Realistic Figure Drawing".
  • The final fight scene, when Bane demands that Batman beg for mercy, and then threatens to break his back, is an homage to the comics storyline Knightfall, when Bane does just that and declares himself ruler of Gotham City. Other references include Bane's easy defeat of Croc (which happened shortly before Knightfall), Croc telling Batman that Bane will snap him in two, and Bane's abduction of Robin.
  • Henry Silva (Bane) and John Vernon (Rupert Thorne) had both previously appeared in the 1983 women-in-prison exploitation film Chained Heat.
  • Bane is the second villain who decides to study Batman's moves and methods before fighting him directly. The first was Temple Fugate.
  • When Batman watches the film explaining the origin of Bane, a misspelling can be seen in the Spanish title shown as "Projecto Gilgamesh". The correct spelling of the word in Spanish is "Proyecto".
  • When Robin is staked out on the building across the street to spy on Bane and Thorne, he has surveillance equipment with him. As Bane charges at Robin, the equipment is still there. However, a moment later as the two begin to fight, the equipment has suddenly vanished.

I prefer the more elegant Bane from the New Batman Aventures.

Bane was a little weird in this first episode and looked really bizarre with that exposed nose! His "overdose" scene was one of the freakiest things I had seen on the show, though.

Also Henry Silva is still the best Bane voice to date (although he is better in the next appearance)

I always liked the slightly streamlined Batman model from The Adventures of Batman & Robin.

I guess Bruce Timm was experimenting before diving in with S:TAS.
