The New Batman Adventures Episode: Mean Seasons

http://kane52630.tumblr.com/post/817...man-adventures







Trivia

Quote:
  • Batman would not be the only hero to fight a robotic Tyrannosaurus. Superman also fought one in "A Little Piece of Home".
  • Calendar Girl's sarcastic remark about dinosaurs, as well well as the ripples in the pool from the Tyranosaur's rumbling footsteps, are clear references to Jurassic Park, among other films.
  • Calendar Girl's henchmen are clearly costumed to resemble Chippendales dancers.
  • Calendar Girl is voiced by Sela Ward, an actress who, at the time this episode was made, was conducting a protest campaign against Hollywood's emphasis on youth and its harmful effects on public perception. This episode—the villainess of which is a beautiful woman who has nonetheless been cruelly marginalized after she "turned 30"—could be construed as part of the same campaign.
  • Likewise, the line-up of new "GWB" shows could be viewed as an unsubtle dig at The New Batman Adventures's own parent network, Warner Brothers, which at this time was aggressively targeting the youth market with prime-time series such as Dawson's Creek, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Felicity, and others.
  • In the comics, WGBS was a Metropolis-based network run by Morgan Edge. During the Silver Age, Clark Kent worked there as a newsreader, along with Lana Lang.
  • The background music played before the WGBS New Fall Season's presentation is strikingly similar to "Theme from Star Trek", the title theme of Star Trek, a futuristic sci-fi show from the late 60s.
  • Calendar Girl's line, "Beware the Ides of March!" is from Shakespeare's Julius Caesar.
  • When Calendar Girl's henchman yells, "QUIET!" to the two captives, her mouth doesn't match the line.
  • When Calender Girl's thug hurls a bomb at Batman, for one frame there is a flash of light that is reused footage from the gas canisters that Superman ignites in the Superman: The Animated Series episode "The Way of All Flesh".

Though both sequences were excellent and suspenseful I always thought the Batman and T-Rex showdown in "Mean Seasons" was more hardcore than the Supes confrontation with the robotic T-Rex in "A Little Piece of Home". The scale and scope of the superb animation made it seem like Bats was fighting a real T-Rex. But what's gives the Supes fight some edge is Lois being caught in the middle of it and the use of kryptonite to up the stakes. Both were great moments in their own right. I just remember being on the edge of my seat seeing Bats vs. a robotic T-Rex as a kid b/c I didn't see a moment like that coming in an ep. like that.

I wonder if Kevin Conroy voiced Batman, if there are voices at all?
Can't wait. It looks like they used the JL/JLU design for Batman in this.

The New Batman Adventures Episode: The Demon Within

http://kane52630.tumblr.com/post/820...man-adventures








Trivia

Quote:
  • Jason's quote "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy" comes from Shakespeare's Hamlet (Act I, scene v).
  • Klarion has Etrigan break into the "Kirby Cake Company". Both characters were created by legendary comic artist Jack Kirby.
  • Devastator 3, the movie that Klarion saw and scoffed for being a sequel, seems to spin its title from the Terminator movie franchise. Also, the star-of-the-movie's name, Donald Shaltenpepper, is a clear spin on Arnold Shwarzenegger, star of the first three installments in the "Terminator" franchise.
  • This episode was Stephen Wolfe Smith's final performance before his death in 2000.
  • Etrigan would return in the Justice League episode, "A Knight of Shadows".

Actually he supposed to look like his first appearance in 1939.

Batman: Strange Days was just on and it was pretty good. Also it sounded like Conroy was voicing Batman.

The New Batman Adventures Episode: Over The Edge

http://kane52630.tumblr.com/post/822...man-adventures








Trivia

Quote:
  • Despite being the villain who triggered all of this, the Scarecrow has no lines in this episode outside of his sinister laugh. However, it is provided by Jeff Glen Bennett rather than Jeffrey Combs.
  • Bane's only appearance in The New Batman Adventures. However, he would appear in "Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman" — his final DCAU appearance, production-wise.
  • A unique feature of this episode is Batman's apparent willingness to use lethal force on Bane, suggesting that at least in the hallucination, the loss of his "family" and what he views as his betrayal of Gordon has shattered his moral code as he has nothing left to lose, he implies as much to Bane.
  • The lawyer hired by Harley Quinn, the Mad Hatter, The Riddler, the Ventriloquist & Scarface is the same one from "Joker's Millions". He is a parody of Johnnie Cochran, one of the lawyers on O.J. Simpson's defense team during his infamous trial. Cochran's celebrated line "If the glove doesn't fit, you must acquit" is parodied in this episode as "If the Bat's on a spree, Wayne must pay the fee". The same line is later spoofed for a third time in the DCAU during the Justice League episode "In Blackest Night". When Flash acts as Green Lantern's defense attorney during GL's trial, Flash pleads "If the ring wasn't lit, you must acquit!"
  • During the final scene it is implied that Commissioner Gordon knows that Barbara is Batgirl, further confirmed during the audio commentary included on the Batman: The Animated Series, Volume Four (DVD). The third season of Gotham Girls suggests that he is still in the dark about her secret. However, the Gordon that refers to Barbara exclusively as Batgirl is a robotic imposter, and the actual Gordon makes no real statements either way.
  • It is somewhat appropriate that the Mad Hatter would lead the lawsuit against Bruce Wayne, as he used to work for Wayne Enterprises before he went crazy in "Mad as a Hatter".
  • For that matter, Harley Quinn is pretty much her own expert witness. As a trained and formerly licenced clinical psychologist, she can diagnose and testify firsthand as to the mental trauma Batman inflicted upon herself and her co-plaintiffs. Whether or not she would be accepted by the court as a credible witness, however, would be another hearing altogether.
  • The subject of the Bat-villains having their day in court with the Caped Crusader has come up before. In the Batman: The Animated Series episode "Trial", the villains joined forces to capture Batman and take him to Arkham Asylum, where they literally put him on a full-blown mock trial for "crimes" the Dark Knight had allegedly committed against them.
  • Mayor Hill sympathizes with Commissioner Gordon, saying "If it were my child", referring to his son Jordan from the Batman: The Animated Series episode "Be A Clown".
  • The plot device of the main plot turning out to be an induced dream was also used in the Batman: The Animated Series episode, "Perchance to Dream". Coincidentally or not, the Mad Hatter is the only villain to appear in both episodes.
  • This is one of the The New Batman Adventures two episodes that features all four Bat Family team members in costume, though here Nightwing only appears in the dream sequence. The other episode was "Old Wounds" (which showed Batman and Batgirl in a flashback). In neither episode are all four heroes together at any one time.
  • Originally, the scene where Batgirl crashed onto her dad's squad car was supposed to be animated to portray the crash as being head-on, but the network told them to rewrite it as it was far too directly violent.
  • In the tie-in comic Batman Beyond #13 elaborates on the long-term effects from events in this episode. It reveals that, ever since her exposure to the high dose of Scarecrow toxin she experienced during this episode, Barbara Gordon is stricken every three or four years by a "relapse" that causes her to experience heightened fear while awake, progressing to the point where she must retreat to a secure location and enter a deep sleep for three or four days to wait out the experience as a nightmare. However, when her latest relapse takes place during a search for a missing girl, Barbara is forced to keep herself awake, contacting Terry McGinnis to keep her awake and focused until the girl is found.
  • Sometimes when this episode is rerun, the programming guide's episode description reads "The Scarecrow influences Batgirl's dreams," which gives away the big reveal when Barbara wakes up in the Batcave.
  • When Batman first sees him, Bane's lips are white. However, a few seconds later, his lips are skin-coloured and remain so for the rest of the episode.
  • Batman removes his cape in his fight against Bane and fills it with rocks. The cape is ripped during the fight but a couple of second later appears reattached to Batman's cowl without any damage.
  • Though it does bear mention that most of this episode is actually a fear gas-fueled hallucination/nightmare, so an inconsistency here and there actually is somewhat consistent with the "dream sequence" method of storytelling.

Brilliant ep. Over The Edge. Up there with the best eps, imo. The story animation and voice acting are all top notch. Really pushed the envelope.

It was unsettling seeing Gordon turn on Batman. And doing whatever it took to lock catch or kill him.

It's strange that they haven't put it online... I think he Superman 75 short premiered before it actually aired on television.

EDIT:

Here we go, Travesty:

That's cool and all but really? That's the short? Wasn't the Superman one going through his history with all the different interpretations? I was excited to get that but for Batman.

Over The Edge...one of the best episodes. Loved the dramatic one-off nature of it, and the types of scenes that allowed. One of the best Bane appearances ever. The end with Jim and Barbara is great, too.
