What Would Neil Patrick Harris Do: Batman Musical

This is just great!  For all of us who wonder what Neil Patrick Harris would do in a musical Batman, he would play a villain named Musical Meister.  Listen to the video above to his song "Drives Us Bats".

I have no strong feelings one way or the other about Beyond Batman.  The look and feel of this incarnation of Batman has not stirred me enough to go through the hurdles to watch the show.  Coupling that with Cartoon Networks lack of respect for those decabled fans and I just don't care.

This position has changed slightly.  With Neil Patrick Harris in a musical episode I will have to watch this.

The full musical episode of Beyond Batman: The Brave and the Bold will premiere on Cartoon Network on October 23rd.

Star Wars: Clone Wars Streaming Free Online

The first 10 episodes of Star Wars: Clone Wars is free streaming online for a limited time!  I love this series from the movie length pilot that got a theatrical release through the first 10 episodes. Now is your chance to get caught up on the series.  From December 22nd through January 5th the first 10 episodes will stream online at the Cartoon Network’s and on Star Wars site.  I like the Star Wars site’s player more though and they have all of the preview videos, games, and episodes commentary.

My two most favorite episodes so far are episode #1 Ambush and Episode #10 Lair of Grievous Star Wars: The Clone Wars - Star Wars: The Clone Wars - Lair of Grievous.  In Ambush we get to watch Yoda in action and learn at the feet of a Jedi Master.  In Lair of Grievous we get to see a statue of Grievous before his accident and transformation and we get to see into the generals mind including a glimpse of his true feelings about Duku!

The show will resume on Friday, January 2nd with episode 11 "Dooku Captured" I can’t wait!

''The Boondocks'' strip on Hiatus

C.E. Dorsett Take a deep breath:

Cartoonist Aaron McGruder, creator of “The Boondocks,” is taking six months off from his popular and at times controversial comic strip about the misadventures of a black family in white suburbia (Indianapolis Star).

I know it's hard to hear, but it is for a good cause:

...his hiatus ... would begin the week of March 27 and end in October. Speculation has centered on the demands of McGruder's Cartoon Network TV show. The show, which is based on the strip, was launched last year.

Cartoon Network says the show won't be affected by McGruder's hiatus (Indianapolis Star).

I wish McGruder the best of everything. He has the best strip on the page and the best show on the TV machine right now. I wish him the best and will miss the strip.
