I just heard from James that the return of Batman: The Brave and the Bold was pushed back at the last minute. So instead of returning tonight it will return on May 8th. You may have seen the clip below before. If not here is the first look at the Huntress from the May 8th episode "Night of the Huntress." Feature episodes will feature Booster Gold, Bat Mite, Red Tornado and Robin.

SuperFriends the Lost Episodes

I saw at Superman Homepage and here that on August 11th the SuperFriends Lost episodes will be for sale.
During the 1982-1983 season, ABC continued to run a half-hour long show entitled The Best of the Superfriends. This show consisted of reruns of shows from the previous nine seasons. These episodes were mostly half-hour long episodes (not shorts) featuring the core group of five Superfriends. By the time the 1983-1984 season rolled around, older Superfriends series were well into sydication, and could be viewed on weekday afternoons. Therefore in its ultimate stupidity, ABC decided to drop the Superfriends from the 1983-1984 Saturday morning television line-up. However, during this time Hanna-Barbera continued to produce new episodes of the Superfriends. In fact, 24 of these so-called "Lost Episodes" were animated but not aired in the United States that season. Three of these episodes were aired when the Superfriends returned to Saturday morning ABC television the following year. The remainder of the episodes finally aired in syndication years later as part of the Superman/Batman Adventures.

They are available for pre-order on July 7th.

Rest in Peace Bea Arthur

I just heard that Bea Arthur, known to TV fans for her hit shows Maude and Golden Girls, passed away. Most remember her from Golden Girls and tend to forget her series Maude that ran from 1972 to 1978. Here is a video of the opening credits. Womens lib in the 70's was a hot topic and as you can tell by the credits the comedy tackled that issue head on.

Now here is a video of a show called Family Guy. I don't watch the show but this part that I once saw was funny.
