One of the comics I miss getting to read is Scooby-Doo Team-Up, where Scooby and the gang join forces with DC heroes and other Hanna-Barbera stars. One of the best team-ups are with Batman. During The New Scooby-Doo Movies Batman and Robin appeared twice, going after the Joker and Penguin. Now there’s a new team-up coming, but instead of Batman showing up on Scooby-Doo (despite what the title is), Scooby’s showing up on Batman. Batman: The Brave & The Bold to be exact.
This isn’t the first team-up with this version of Batman…sort of. Aside from the two aforementioned episodes of The New Scooby-Doo Movies the gang showed up in one of the short intro adventures of Batman: The Brave & The Bold, but it was actually a segment where Bat-Mite was discussing earlier versions of Batman. It lead to one of the best Shaggy & Scooby moments not from their show.
At least this time they’re actually teaming with the heroes. Unlike Mask Of The Blue Falcon, which I can’t given a complete complaint about until I see it, but dropping the team-up angle I was hoping for did not make me happy. I was worried about that and I kind of wish it was the HB version as seen in Scooby Movies and Super Friends but Batman: The Brave & The Bold was a fun series so it’s nice to see that version of Batman and the DC heroes together again.
