The original concept for ''The Brave and the Bold'' was an AnthologyComic of historical adventure stories, featuring the likes of Myth/RobinHood, the Viking Prince, and the Silent Knight. From issue #25 it became a try-out title for new potential series, beginning with the debut of the ComicBook/SuicideSquad, and going on to introduce the Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica, Cave Carson, the Silver Age ComicBook/{{Hawkman}} and Hawkgirl, and "Strange Sports Stories", all of which went on to achieve at least occasional recurring status except for "Strange Sports Stories".

The tone of the team-up stories could vary considerably. Some were straightforward Batman stories (you wouldn't think a crossover between ''Batman'' and ''House of Mystery'' would be one, but in #93 Denny O'Neil made it work), but many, to put it bluntly, carried the torch for the kind of Silver Age wackiness that made [[Website/{{Superdickery}} Superdickery.com]] what it is today into the Bronze Age. (Exhibit A: #108, in which Batman accidentally sells his soul to the Devil to save a child, then teams up with Sergeant Rock[[note]] With absolutely no explanation of why Rock is still a young-ish man in 1973[[/note]] who reveals the "Devil" is actually Hitler! But also actually the Devil!). Most of these (and the majority of the series, in fact) were written by "Zaney" Bob Haney, the man so famous for his cheeky defiance for continuity, common sense and logic that even his editors once claimed his stories might take place in their own alternate universe, "Earth-B(ob)". Needless to say, Haney's stories have developed their own fans, not hindered by the fact that he worked with Neal Adams and Jim Aparo doing career-best work.

A new ''The Brave and the Bold'' series ran from 2007 to 2010, which removed Batman's ex officio status and returned to being a series where any combination of heroes could team up. The spirit of the Silver Age original is arguably better carried on by the animated series ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold''.
