Super Best Friends Forever....

Well, since it's been on...

I like this, and it's interesting they've made Donna (at a guess) Hispanic... but with that in mind, a taco and burrito joke on her first outing? Am I being over-sensitive, or does that seem a mite.... I dunno... unfortunate?

And for legality, three seminal covers featuring our heroes

I think that was more of an attempt at a Greek accent than hispanic...plus, it seems to me that tacos and burritos are sort-of like pizza where it has origins elsewhere but have been pretty much Americanized.

Anyway...was anyone confused and thought maybe Donna was supposed to be Diana a few times? I mean, with calling Hippolyta her mother, if it weren't for mentioning her sister, I would have thought they were going REAL old school with a time-displaced Diana origin. I guess the related thing is one of her twelve-dozen origins.

But yeah--it was cute enough for a minute-long short.

Cool--like I said, one of her dozens of origins.

appropriate icon is appropriate.

I like her well enough as a character but DAMN. Hopefully if/when she comes back they'll give her one origin and just stick with it.

They already did, didn't they? It's just that they've swept her off the board along with Wally, for whatever reason.

Unless Diana or Barry or anyone responds to "Who the hell is that," I'm still thinking they're still around, we're just not seeing their story right now.

Yeah, I really think that was a cartoony attempt to make Donna Greek :P

[personal profile] kd_the_movie 2012-03-17 11:51 pm (UTC)(link)
The taco jokes aren't at her expense (really they're just displaying how single mined and "goofy" Babs) so they're not that bad to me.

That's how I saw it as well.

I do love how plump Supergirl's charadesign is though!

Plus, she threw the goat. I approve.

I thought the thing to change her mind was the whole 'feeding the starving orphans' part?

[personal profile] kd_the_movie 2012-03-18 12:39 am (UTC)(link)
yea thats how I interpreted it as well

Babs just seemed hungry to me. I know I love a good burrito now and then and then some more.

I'm glad I bought burritos this month and have them in my freezer..because now I'm hungry.

It sounds Greek/Mediterranean to me. At least, it sounds similar to the accents of my Italian family members.

[personal profile] auggie18 2012-03-18 04:55 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah, it sounded a lot more Greek to me. I can see it maybe being Hispanic, but really, it sounds Greek to me.

On that note, I'm pretty sure Donna was like 80% on the starving orphans bit and then tipped over the hundred by the burritos. That's how I saw it anyway.
Or maybe she assumed that hey, they could feed starving orphans with burritos!

[personal profile] darkknightjrk 2012-03-18 02:01 am (UTC)(link)

If you watched the video, you just did--it was only a one-minute short. There may be more coming up, though.

Oh, thank you miss Faust. My emotional turmoil over Mass Effect 3 just dropped 40% after watching this. I feel so relaxed now.

Oh goodness! Twilight Sparkle is Batgirl :D My love cannot be expressed in words.

Just like Lauren Faust's other work MLP:FIM, I love the character interactions! Supergirl's eagerness to cause some mischief, Batgirl's hyperactivity, Donna as the mature one trying to rein the others in.


I know these are one-minute shorts but is it that each is entirely separate from the other? Or is there some kind of inter-connectivity between them? I would assume the former but hope for the latter.

I thought it was cute. I assumed the accent to be Greek, which Donna would have picked up on the island (though during most of her history they threw around 'Hola' a lot as well), and gave her a nice distinction. Amongst my co-workers tacos vs. burritos isn't usually about food, but I don't think that's what the toon was going for.

Hyperactive Babs is hyperactive..like this one over the one in the current comics anyway.

I can't quite tell if that is a Greek accent or not with Donna but it was an awesome accent (though being Greek-American my family would kill me for somehow not being able to tell).

Man Babs is like hoppped up on the world's sugar supply or something. But hilariously.

I thought that Donna's accent is Greek, and that if the burritos bit is anything, it's a stealth reference to Diana's time at Taco Whiz.

I think this was someone's attempt at a Greek accent-- if your only exposure to a Greek accent was SNL's "juice sketch."

So, not only is Pinkie Pie best pony, she's also BATGIRL.

Well so much for Steph, Cass and Babs. Pinkie is best Batgirl.

Lauren Faust has created a cartoon about three superheroines, where one is brash and headstrong, one is girly and silly, and they are led by an authoritative bordering on uptight leader. How original.

Because being the occasional storyboard artist, writer, director, and supervising director qualifies her as the creator. She was part of the Powerpuff Girls team but Craig McCracken and Genndy Tartakovsky were more what I would call the "Creators".

It's still way too close, especially since she worked on it at all.

I had that debut of Batgirl comic. I guess that's why Babs is my favorite Batgirl. The heroes you fall in love with as a child just stick with you. :)
