    Well, well, well. Look at this! If we were actually able to hear a stunned silence over the internet...this would certainly be a moment to cause it. This show deserves to win the Special Class Animated Program award. Mainly because Batman aside, the show is a complete overhaul. Nice job Matsuda and Co.!

    Ah yes, the prestigious Special Class Animated Program award, a high honor indeed! And let's not forget the Outstanding Achievement in Sound Editing trophy! That is truly a triumph for the show's writers, designers, animators, and voice-actors! ...oh, wait, actually it has nothing to do with them. And as I'm thinking about it, aren't the Daytime Emmys the ones for the soap operas and crappy "drama" shows? So you're all proud that The Batman can hang with As The World Turns? Way to go Matsuda!

    Did I seriously just see somebody say that a show deserves to win an Emmy just because it's a complete overhaul? So, if I was to produce a Superman show that had Superman coming from Mars and having no superpowers whatsoever, that would be worthy of an Emmy, simply based on its overhaul? Wow. Who knew it was that easy?

    Ah, the words of someone w/a TRUE distaste for "The Batman." :)

    Well, Batman: TAS was Emmy winning for obvious reasons and I personally feel The Batman deserves that same merit as well. Truth to be told, I've never watched an Emmy Awards show in my life,lol. But, being able to print "Emmy Award Winning series" in the description of a DVD Collection (TAS) certainly establishes to both the fans and newcomers alike, that this show is worth spending your hard-earned money on. As bad as Soaps are, they ARE well-established shows that've been on for decades and appeal to old and new fans alike. So, to see ANIMATION (in general...2D animation even) being awarded somehow is great. Not very many GOOD, traditionally animated shows are out there. Most are either Pixar features, or series based on really bad anime or manga (not to say that all are bad, mind you).

    Oh, and no show should ever receive an award based on its overhaul. It should be awarded or noticed (which The Batman is, considering its nominations) because it was overhauled, but managed to retain what The Batman is essentially. True, some of it watered down, and aimed at kids...but not everything is (nor should it be) made w/Comic Book FanBoys in mind :)

    BTW...Superman from Mars? That's beyond overhauling, that's dumb,lol. Man, but if such insignificant changes bother you, what are your feelings on Superman Returns? Or even Burton's Batman? (you know, considering he Killed and all). Mind boggling, really.

    i disagree. us comic book fans make up the soul calibur of these projects & franchises. the kids & parents make up like 10% percent of the diameter. the creators can do what they want with thier franchises, as long as they don't push the loyal fan base aside.

    like i said in my previous post. as i used tmnt as an example. witch is a true statement. its like if a mechanic was hosting a show, to talk about & sell auto parts. but he decided to make the show for little kids.

    sure he would use anlaogy's & ancronym words to connect with the kiddi standards. but what about all those other auto machanics people.

    who want to watch the show, who study every single car part, who know's every thing thier is to know about a car, who eat sleeps & breaths cars & tools & how they work.( thier the loyal fan base, not the kids).

    its just speaks in volumes when you take a project , cut & paste it, to fit a certian mold. but you forget the orginal aspects & concepts to that project.

    Oh please. If you really think that comic fans make up the core audience of these shows, I've got a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you. Cheap. PM me with your offer.




    You answered your own question. The guy hosting the show (and I'm assuming, the writer, director, and network) decided to target children with the show. Therefore, the 'loyal fan base' probably wouldn't be watching it in the first place. IF they were (and that's a big if) they wouldn't complain, because they'd understand that it's aimed at CHILDREN. (Why is this so hard for some people to understand??)

    I heard about this. I don't hate THE BATMAN anymore but I do think there is one cartoon that is more worthy of a daytime Emmy, and that is the chronically ignored, overlooked and underrated TMNT.

    JLU is also a better show but that's a cable show that CN barely even wants to air anymore, not sure how that would have worked.

    What I meant by not having everything aimed at Fanboys, is that when you aim a show specifically @ the fanboy demographic, you lose the Children's interest and THAT WILL break a show.

    JLU for example. While it is a WONDERFUL show, what kid (ages 8-12) wants to tune in and see an episode dedicated to the Red Tornado, Booster Gold, and Hawk & Dove? Yeah, it's a kick in the pants for us fans, but it is for us fans alone. That's why JLU is gettin' canned. Because they (Timm & Co.) were selfish and too caught up in THEIR OWN geekness to care about everyone outside their target audience. As much as I Love JLU, I didn't sign that petition going around because I feel Timm dropped the ball from a logical standpoint. I have no problem seeing the C-List league members...infact, I think it's cool they're being acknowledged. BUT, you simply can't throw a team of C-Lister's together (for an entire show) and try keep anyone under the age of 19's interest. If you're gonna have a show w/some C-list heroes, at least have a big name involved w/them such as Batman or Superman.

    I'm not saying they should dumb down their storylines or anything, but they thought they could get away w/what is and always will be a show for the Fanboys...no one else. I know they've had trouble getting some characters on the show due to "The Batman", but c'mon...you still have Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, etc. The embargo is dumb, but whose fault is it really? As I mentioned earlier, it's just easier to blame it on a show that's a waste of time for all of you. Something that's not yours. For the life of me, the Bat Embargo will never be as mind boggling as possesive Fanboys that think Everything w/a DC or Marvel (Or even Star Wars) character in it MUST be for them.

    And yes, Ninja Turtles was "snubbed" and it has been ever since it started. It's actually quite popular among youngsters too. I suppose there's not enough TMNT fanboys catching on? :)

    I don't think so, look at HBO spawn: that show was striclty for us older comic book fans: & it got greenlighted for a new dtv & a few more new season's.

    about jlu getting canned because it was cater to us comic book fans! false!. i don't know the specifics, but i do know that some thigns aren't for everybody. shows are made in equalibrium. for the one demographic/ the core audicence/ the other demographic.

    but also thier is some projects that you don't cut & paste to meet any dempgraphics. you just leave it how it is.

    Nope. Not the only show on. You can go buy a DVD set to watch the version you want to. You can watch Boomerang - they were just recently running BTAS. You have choices.




    And you're welcome to watch the show. It's still Batman - maybe not a version that appeals to you, but it's still Batman. Pointy ears? Check. Batmobile? Check. Blue and gray costume? Check. Batgirl? Check. Gordon? Check. Alfred? Check. Wayne Foundation? Check. Adam West? Check. (I could go on but I tire of this.)

    Spawn appeals to a completely different audience than Batman, not to mention that it didn't appear on network TV - it was on pay cable. Again - different target group. The things HBO shows on say, Real Sex, wouldn't fly on NBC. Even more 'mainstream' shows like the Sopranos wouldn't get past network censors.

    You can't have it both ways. To say "some things aren't for everybody" and then bash The Batman makes you a hypocrite.

    So, you're saying you just want repeats of BTAS - nothing new - forever, right? That's incredibly short sighted if you are.

    i don't mind anything new, AS LONG as it has potential. i don't like to watch mindless entertainment. i like shows with substaince, charcter growth, changeabiblities, basically shows that will make me think, ponder, & wonder at the end.

    THE BATMAN is one of theose shows that dosen't have it. its a shame that mindless shows get more airtime than shows with potential.

    Maybe they got the name of the award wrong? I won't say what the award probably was for but I bet you could guess Mr. Socko. =P

    Hmm...I guess you shouldn't be trying to win the lotto or playing any games at the casino, because it would appear that your intuition/hunch/gut feeling/whatever caused you to post that, would be wrong.

    No, it just goes to show that your opinion of the show is in the minority.
