I'm going to hell I prefer this over The classic 90's cartoo
So when the first thing we saw was concept art of a very 60's pre-school friendly looking Batman, with Green Arrow and the Beetle my first thought was "Man this is going to suck", now I thought The Batman was nothing more than a soulless toy commercial, so I didn't exactly miss it, but this just seemed so much more pandering. However when I turned out to be completely wrong about Spectacular Spider-man (rest in peace) as not only was it "not bad" but it was the greatest Spider-man cartoon ever I decided to give this cartoon a chance. Not only was I wrong and it was good, eventually I enjoyed it more than The critically acclaimed fan-favorite 90's series. Don't get me wrong, the 90's cartoon is a well deserved classic, hell its theatrical movie Mask of the Phantasm is still the best Batman movie bar none. But for every great episode like Heart of Ice, Feat of Clay, Robin's Reckoning, etc there were plenty of just kind of there episodes. Not once was I ever bored by Brave and the Bold, its just so much fun. And its completely respectable to the Batman character, I know fanboys aplenty like to pretend the goofy Batman never existed, but he did. The Brave and the Bold doesn't make Batman an idiot, he's very much the hero we've come to love (I get somewhat of a less wooden Val Kilmer vibe to be honest) its just his situations are very Silver Age wackiness. Dark Batman doesn't necessarily equal good. And Light Batman does not necessarily equal bad.
Then we can watch this show in hell together :D

Hey, I love the DCAU and I still think this show is a lot of fun. Honestly, why should you be sent to hell simply because you like a fun, light, campy cartoon? Enjoy what you want, and screw the haters. You're happy, and that should be all that matters.

What I loved about this show was the absolute revelry in the Silver Age, and made it absolutley awesome. I, for one, think comics can get far too serious for their own good (even if I have enjoyed some GRIMDARK super hero stuff before, like Blackest Night) and found Brave and the Bold to be a very refreshing take. As well as enjoying the focus on obscure heroes, even if I didn't always enjoy what they did with them.
