Peekaboo! He SEE'S YOU!!!

Some new characters debut in Batman: Brave and the Bold's next episode "In the Chill of the Night" (Currently available via iTunes)

From the pre-credit story-ette, and hardly surprising for a Paul Dini episode; Zatanna!

who assists Batman in fighting the classic Flash rogue, Abra Kadabra! (I had to include him just for the awesomely villainous moustache!)

And in later scenes, the addition of Poison Ivy to the classic Bat villain line up!

I like the look here, she wears a sort of burlesque dance hall girls train-dress which covers her rear, but doesn't extend to the front.

The Mad Hatter and Two Face

And the avatars of Vengeance and Justice... Spectre and the Phantom Stranger... (Mark Hamill is unrecognisable as the Spectre, but you can hear Conroy as the Stranger)

The old skulls in the pupils look dates back as far as the Spectre's very first appearances in the 1940's.

And in a rather lovely moment, Batman is taken back in time by the Phantom Stranger to a pivotal night within his own lifetime, as the Stranger tries to get him to understand why what happened to his parents REALLY happened.

Thomas Wayne (Adam West) wearing an outfit that would years later inspire Bruce's costume has been in continuity since the 1950's.

And it's nice to see Batman speechless when his mother (Julie Newmar, sounding a little older than one imagines Martha to have been, if one is completely honest) introduces herself to him.

She extends her hand for a shake, or perhaps a gallant kiss from this stranger who has just introduced himself as Matthew Malone, and is a little surprised to get this instead...

Her comment of "Oh my! You're friendly aren't you?" COULD be taken out of context, but it's a lovely moment so I find I just can't.

A great episode IMHO which I won't spoil further.

And for legality, a scene from "The Untold Legend of the Batman" miniseries that we also get in the episode, more or less.

West, Newmar, Conroy, Hamill. Woobie Bruce moment. I can not wait.

Hamill's unrecognizable, heh. Not surprised, he's got a decent range (example: Solomon Grundy).

...which covers her rear...
No, Pam, noooo!

Lacking the ability to pay for things online means I'll have to wait for this to air. Now I'm all sad.

Though what I've seen mentioned about this episode elsewhere he's supposed to be sent back to the night his parents were killed which the series already showed us was Christmas. Why are they wearing costumes?

I could swear I saw a comic story way back in the day that had that plot, but damned if I can recall it clearly.

Bruce is pretty fortunate though, he gets to travel back and see them, up close or at a distance, pretty frequently over the years. Certainly more than most orphans can manage.

That's not the same one as where he goes back to the night they die in a different Earth, is it?

Not the one I was thinking of, although I liked that one a lot. I think I had it as an Archie Digest-sized reprint called The Greatest Batman Stories Ever Told or something similar. Had that, the Joker Fish one (with the wonderful Pimp Joker) and some others I just can't recall at the moment.

Could have sworn I saw something like the story you just posted in an old Batman Family or something, but it's been a lotta years.

Either way, it brings back some good memories of how I got into comics in the first place.

You know, I think I'm gonna do a "What got you into comics in the first place" thread.

This looks awesome. I've only seen a handful of these episodes, but what I've seen, I've enjoyed.
I can't wait until the HQ episode!! I hear that airs in May. Yay!

Well, it's supposed to be called Emperor Joker. Ha. But the fact they're bringing HQ into this world is what excites me. Batgirl is also supposed to appear in it, as well.

Hm, the Spectre's face is transparent in the first screenshot, with his skull partially visible. That's interesting. :)

No, I can't adequately explain why.

I can. Phallic imagery in your Robin bondage scenes is a must.

So it's BD for the Robin and SM for the unicorn?

I can deal with that.

The episode was very dark, I'll have to say. Had trouble associating it with the usual BatB, and by the end of the episode I was near tears.

But Conroy! Hamill! West! Newmar! Unmasked Bruce! My fangirl heart is happy.

And I loved Poison Ivy's costume. So cute, with all the flowers. She should definitely have more flowers in her costume.

A bit of a mood whiplash with the cheerful BatB end credits music, wasn't it?

A definite mood whiplash, considering you realize how much of a woobie Bruce really is in that episode.

Come to think of it, you're right. A Southern accent would go well with her dress and how she was animated. And didn't she spend some time in the swamps in the DCAU? Maybe it was in Louisiana, and she kind of got the accent.
