Space Ghost Meets Batman
Here's the cold open to a recent episode of Cartoon Network's Batman: The Brave & The Bold animated series that teams the caped crusader up with Hanna-Barbera's spectre of the stars, the legendary Space Ghost - and his companions, Jan, Jace and Blip! Actually, at just under 6 minutes, this is nearly the length of an actual, complete 60s Space Ghost episode!
Gorgeous stuff. A nice homage to Alex Toth's original Space Ghost designs, but with a nice, modern feel. This really makes me want to see WB Animation and Cartoon Network create a new Space Ghost/Herculoids adventure hour - or, better yet, a direct-to-disc feature film!
