    It was ok.

    Nice to hear Kevin Conroy for just one line.

    And is that giant is suppose to be Grundy??

    That was really fun. It definitely comes off as what B:TAS would be if Timm was given carte blanche to do what he saw fit. Bits of it seem like an homage to the Hugo Strange story in Batman #1 even. Old school Batplane was a nice touch.

    Here's an interview with Bruce Timm about the short.

    No, it's one of Hugo's Monster Men. They predate Grundy by 4 years. They're from Batman #1, "The Giants of Hugo Strange" (April 1940). Here's an image.

    Completely lost track of this and had no idea when it was coming out. Any idea when it will be airing again or be found legally on the web?

    While it's not listed on the schedule for a repeat, the "Uncle Jokes" episode that it followed today gets played April 11 at 7 pm eastern, April 13 at 1 pm, and April 15 at 8:30 am. No guarantee Strange Days will trail it.

    If it will be online legally, probably either DC Entertainment (Youtube) and/or Cartoon Network (Youtube) will post it soon.

    I thought it was alright. Nothing breathtaking, but if it were on a block of DC Nation that I actually made the effort to watch, it'd probably feel like a cherry on top of a nice half hour to 1 hour of TV.

    I thought this was pretty great. Would have been fun if this was a series of animated shorts rather than only this adventure. Still, I liked how it all played out despite the short running time. Batman looked great, Hugo Strange and his Monster Man looked pretty cool, as well as their prisoner.

    Love the design. Very JL yet some BTAS, but also the original 1939 costume is great. I do wish they would have done something like this for Superman's 75th. :/
    Still, this is sweet!

    That was very, very nicely done for what it was - - two minutes of awesomeness!

    And while we know Kevin Conroy provided Batman's voice, does anybody have a clue about the other two voice actors? Any chance Ray Buktenica was brought back to voice Hugo Strange (as he did in BTAS)?
