Okay, you were wondering that Batman & Robin could be in Superfriends & The New Adventures of Batman at the same time. How come he and Robin are the only DC heroes to be in two shows at the same time? How come the Joker did not become a member of the Legion of Doom? How come the Riddler did not appear in the New Adventures of Batman? Why are Batman & Robin's voice are different in both shows. I hope you give me a comment soon. And another thing, How come Batmite is annoying like Scrappy doo?
Legacyhero and i are doing a Kid Intense/Hero Force crosover which will be a blast. Also, we are teaming up for a Kid Intense movie. Tell me what you think of the crossover and the movie we are teaming up.

There were 2 shows of Batman done through Filmation, one in the 60s called Batman, and then one in the 70s called New Adventures of Batman. The 60s one was more based on the Batman live-action series, in fact the voice actor who did Batman appeared on the live-action show. The New Adventures of Batman was more based on the comics slightly with the addition of Bat-Mite, although it was more of an attempt to make it more appealing to younger viewers. For Super Friends, they just went with the voice actors who were already doing them for the other show, especially since Casey Kasem(aka Robin)was already doing Shaggy for Hanna-Barbera. Joker probably wasn't in Legion Of Doom because he's just to unpredictable and psychotic to be trusted in matters of global domination.

Batman could be in two shows on Saturday mornings because one of the shows was in reruns. Superfriends and Batman weren't airing simultaneously. The 1977 episodes which aired at the same time as the New Adventures of Batman were reruns of episodes from the 1973-1974 season. The series didn't pick up again until 1978, after the New Adventure of Batman was canceled. It's kind of like how modern stations can air reruns of the Batman animated series alongside episodes of Justice League or The Batman.

Batman's an easy character. He should be in more things than what he's in. He's such a great easy to get into character, he'll probably be in works for years upon years to come.

I don't like “The Batman” cartoon thats on for a number of reasons. Its like their trying to do Ultimate Batman and as soon as I saw the direction they took the joker, I just shook my head in disbelief. Same thing with the “extreme looney toons” thing that they advertised. Did they ever come out with that?

I agree with you but do you really think Toyman, Giganta, Solomon Grundy and Bizarro were playing with full enough decks to warrant inclusion in the Legion of Doom? Granted, with the possible exception of Bizarro, even combined, they aren't in Joker's league of psychotic.

I guess that's the same reason Scarecrow never joined, either. :)

I actually liked the New Adventures of Batman as a kid – except for Bat-mite.

But I despised Scrappy-Doo, too. I mean like, ZOIKES, man! I thought that little runt, like, really destroyed what groovy dignity Scoob and crew had left! *gulps down a Scooby snack*

I always had a pet hate of super pets. Especially those with matching capes to their owners. ugh!

You mean you don't like Krypto? ;)

(Actually, Krypto was pretty cool in the Superman comics – just not on tv in the new animated series.)

I stopped liking him the moment he became a ‘seeing eye dog’ for Superboy. Yeeergh! I wanted someone to just shoot that dog, just to see if Superboy would actually blink a eyelid!

…that is my more evil side emerging. lol!
