BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD. This show ran for three years (2008-11) and has the honor of being Grant Morrison’s favorite cartoon. And it’s easy to see why. The show combined an encyclopediac, nerdlike joy of Bat-esoteria with strongly defined characters, terrific voice acting, a kid-friendly delivery, and truly gut-busting humor. And the last episode, a breaking-the-fourth-wall story discussing how shows like this one can’t exist in a cynical superhero environment, was absolutely brilliant. This isn’t just one of my favorite underrated shows, it’s one of my favorites, period.
