I’m going to try a little Super Best Friends Forever experiment here. Warner Bros. have put out some fantastic shorts during their DC Nation programming block on Cartoon Network. They are evolving one of those into a series - Teen Titans Go! It’s almost a continuation of the old Teen Titans animated series but either way, sounds like fun. I know a lot of folks were hoping SBFF would also move on to a half hour series as well but from what I’ve been hearing, it’s not likely and my question is - why?
Warner Bros. don’t believe a “girls” show has the same selling power as a “boys” show and I’d like to prove them wrong. I’d point them to the huge successes that were Lauren Faust’sPower Puff Girls and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic were, I’d tell them women make almost all the purchasing decisions for their household (specifically entertainment), that they are seriously underestimating how much parents spend on their daughters, and that children aren’t the only consumers of animated TV shows and their related products. I could do that but what I’d like to see right now is all of YOU do that.
Reblog or like this post if you’d not only watch a Super Best Friends Forever television show but buy products based on it. (Money talks, remember?) Add your own commentary or not but let’s see what the numbers say.
A million billion times yes! I would love a longer/regular series of this. I’d love to see what Lauren Faust and team would do with a full episode, not just a short. I love the humor and the interactions between the three heroines and the contrasts shown.
And Batgirl riding a Dalek is pure epicness. Now we know how she gets around when her bike is in the shop!
Rock the fuck on, people.
I’m not an artist but my mental image is the River Song vs Dalek confrontation, because I can see the Dalek being quite scared of Babs, especially techie Oracle side of her that would take him apart for pleasure just to see how he works….
I loved this redo of Barbara Gordon’s secret origin when I was younger. It reminds me a little now of Kate and her training. There’s no drama, no horrible crime in her past, just “I want to do something”. Of course this Secret Origin and the Batgirl Special were quickly followed by Killing Joke, so some of my Bat enthusiasm was replaced by anger.
The DCU fangirl is suddenly noticing the “Knights Dependents Bill in 1946”, wondering if it’s named after the Knights (i.e. Ted and Sandra Knight, Starman and Phantom Lady respectively.) In Phantom Lady’s old origin, she was the daughter of a US Senator.
The always lovely Veronicaeatslemons requested Wondy giving Steph advice. I wasn’t sure what sort of thing she’d say, though. I’m thinking either something along the lines of “Your best friend has to be yourself,” since loving herself and being proud of her accomplishments is something Steph is growing into right now.
I just love the idea of Wonder Woman and Batgirl sitting and talking like this.
