Batman: The Brave and the Bold was an animated series that ran in America on the Cartoon Network. The basic premise of the series was the pairing of the Dark Knight with another DC character to fight various super villains. Often the characters Batman would team up with were lesser known DC characters such as Detective Chimp and Cinnamon. Alternately, Batman would occasionally team up with lesser-known versions of popular heroes such as the Jay Garrick Flash. The show ran from November 14th, 2008 until the end of the third season on November 8th, 2011. Like the 1970'd DC comic series The Brave and the Bold upon which the series was partly based, there was more emphasis placed on humor than in previous and more serious Batman animated series. The show occasionally broke the fourth wall, addressing the audience directly, as is the case when Bat-Mite discussed the show's tone with the audience and Batman himself said his farewells to the audience in the final episode of the show. The series was episodic in nature, with few episodes having any relation to any other. Many episodes made reference to Batman in various other forms of media, such as a retelling of the classic Scooby-Doo episode that involved Batman and the Mystery, Inc gang teaming up too defeat the Joker and Penguin. Despite the lighter and more humorous tone of the show, it did occasionally approach the subject of death. Examples included the death of Batman's parents and the execution of Gentleman Ghost. At one point, in an example of breaking the fourth wall, Bat-Mite addresses the issue of death in the series directly with the audience.
