    I admire the skill that went into making Batman: Dead End, but I sure don't want to see a full length Batman movie with him fighting the Aliens and Predators. Besides, we've all been treated to Batman as he was meant to be seen. It's called the Animated Series. [​IMG]

    Britton, Your reply cannot be argued. I too do not want to see Batman fighting those Cretans again--though it was pretty damn cool. And the animated series is true to comic book form. However, if they're going to make an attempt at big screen adaptation--they should allow someone with the passion and vision like Collora has, to direct it. There's a website hosting the film for a limited time for those of you who haven't seen it. Did you know that Sandy sold his car to pay for the making of this film? I can get behind that.

    It was terrific to see Bill post the news about TTA and Animaniacs, but I was confused about the fuss over B:TAS news. We've been talking about that here on HTF since July, when it and Superman:TAS sets were discussed at the San Diego Comic Con as being in-the-works. Patrick McCart passed the word on around here, as I recall.

    Dave, I think everyone is excited to hear something new. A lot of people(especially at the Toon Zone forum) were originally excited when they heard the Comic-Con news. But, then nothing else was mentioned. And some people thought that Warner said something just to get people off their back. So the new news is hope that it will finally happen.

    Don't know much about Batman TAS but these two items recently turned up as having been passed by the BBFC -

    "BATMAN DVD - THE ANIMATED SERIES - EPISODE INTRODUCTIONS" 2m 58s
    "BATMAN DVD - THE ANIMATED SERIES - VOICES OF GOTHAM CITY" 5m 19s

    Does this mean anything to anybody ? Or did these features turn up on a selected-episode disc ?
    If not, it means the set is on its way.

    As there are no animated releases in the Uk, I disappointingly think that it's going to be a release of what has been release in R1 land so far...

    The show started as Batman. Eventually, it changed over to The Adventures of Batman & Robin. Superman had started, and so after a season, they combined the two into The New Batman Superman Adventures.

    If Tiny Toons, Animaniacs & Pinky and the Brain get full releases my life will finally be complete....
    In fact, I was considering buying a DVD recorder just so I could transfer my old tapes of said shows to disc. I think I'll hold out a few months and see what happens.

    It's been awhile since we last heard any news concerning Batman: The Animated Series DVDs. Has a date been set on when the DVDs will finally be released?

    What? Didn't WB announce they'd start releasing it in 2004?

    Big news. I'll wait to be excited until I hear dates. Easy buy on the choice, probably not so easy on the wallet.

    Fandom has it's cost,

    Paul, don't take my response the wrong way. Or perhaps the problem is that I took your response the wrong way.

    I took your post to be an attempt to get me to give up information that I either don't have or wouldn't admit to having (whichever you want to believe). [​IMG]


    The next round of Warner announcements should happen either just before or just after the Christmas holiday. My advice is to just sit tight, because if B:TAS is announced among those, then Gord & I will be all over it.


    In the meantime, though, I apologize if my response upset you. Nothing intended there.
