Brave and the Bold cartoon: Streaky Cameo


Cartoon Network premiered its more kid-oriented super-hero cartoon The Brave and the Bold last week. The opening episode teamed up Batman and the Jaime Reyes Blue Beetle. Together they thwarted Kanjar Ro.

Early in the episode, Jaime and a friend are watching TV. If you blinked you missed it, but there was a commercial for Plastino's Cat Snacks featuring Streaky!

Of course, Al Plastino drew Action Comics #252, the first appearance of Supergirl, so nice little homage there.

But is there any denying that 2008 is The Year of Streaky?

Tiny Titans, Final Crisis, a planned appearance in Cosmic Adventures, part of the Deluxe Supergirl doll, and now a television appearance !! Unbelievable!

As for the show, it clearly is based on a kinder gentler DC universe with a less grim Batman and drawn with Dick Sprang inspired art. I guess we can hope for a Supergirl team-up in the future.

Rao willin'! :D Only, they recently said "no" to using Superman on the show for at least this season so imagine how long we'll be having to wait for Supergirl herself to actually show up as such ah. *Sighs*

And to think Kara made for a dandy team up with Batman back in the Age of Bronze...they got along famously as I recall. The Dark Knight USED to be essentially a thwarted school teacher and ye olde SG didn't mind taking pointers and acting as the "muscle" on the team.

As for Streaky...IF there is a God of Mercy and Justice in the comic book firmament, then we WILL one day behold the ultimate Dog versus Cat throw-down, Streaky against Krypto, One Fall One Match live from the Thunderdome!
Oh well....a fella can dream.

Streaky vs Ruffles the Red Lantern
Krypto vs Wonder Dog

Best selling one shot ever! They must tie it in to Blackest Night
