In what could be called the greatest April fool’s day joke ever, the 1970’s are gonna be making a comeback in the form of a Batman/Scooby-Doo team up. Take a look at your calenders though, it’s still March and Mystery inc. and Gotham’s Dark Knight haven’t teamed up since 1972’s “The Dynamic Scooby-Doo Affair”. Watching Batman and Robin work together with the antics of Shaggy and Scooby must have blown more then a few minds in the decade of peace and love. Strap on your utility belts and get out those Scooby Snacks because it looks like 2011 is the year the band get back together one more time.
It’s 106 miles to Gotham, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of Scooby snacks, it’s dark… and we’re with Batman. Hit it.
On April 1st, 2011, fans of the cowardly dog and the masked hero will have their television set to Batman: The Brave and The Bold for the crossover of the year. As part of the episode ‘Batman’s Strangest Cases’ Batman and every annoying, all-powerful Bat-Mite (Paul Reubens) takes us through some weird alternate realities. The Scooby doo portion is part of a larger scheme, done in the style of early 1970s Hanna-Barbera animation. Jumping alternate realties and only using the best mystery solvers next to Batman himself is pretty weak but it should be worth it in some way. Please use Adam West in the Hanna-Barbera universe, pretty, pretty please.
