Another hilarious episode with Aquaman and The Atom. Aquaman's attitude in this series...PRICELESS!!!

Aquaman is pretty awesome. He's got that Errol Flynn/adventurer tone. I love when he names his adventures. I thought Aquaman and Atom were a classic odd couple. The scene where Atom spoke to Aquaman like he was two was funny.

The Brain also cracked me up. Just because a concept works in comics...man sometimes they look plain weird on tv. The Brain is a perfect example. His accent...everything about him was funny. When he said sacré bleu in his french robot voice it was a moment of pure comic absurdity.

The best part for me though was seeing Plas and Ralph appear on-screen together. Just like the Kamandi bit, these shorts seemed to deserve an enitre episode. It looks like we're getting a Green Lantern full episode after that Guy Gardner intro so I have my fingers crossed to see more of Kamandi and the elastic duo.

Lots of great teams so far:

Batman & Blue Beetle
Plas & Elongated Man
Wildcat & the Outsiders
Aquaman & Atom

It'd be great if one day there could be a DC animated show that could just feature any two characters meeting without needing Batman every week.

My younger LOVES this take on Aquaman.

PLATELET!

I did have two issues with this epi though.. As much as I loved the Ralph/Plas scene, I wasn't big on the voice for Ralph. Just wasn't what I hear in my head reading his lines.

And where was the Brain's other half? Where's Missuer Mallah???

All in all a fun epi though. And PLEASE!!! since Chemo made the cut... What about THE METAL MEN?????

Aquaman reminded me of Marvel's Hercules. Attitude and beard and all...

Yes! The Metal Men are a must for this series. They were regular guest-stars back in the first B&B comic series. The original comic also used Wildcat, Sgt. Rock and Black Canary quite often. It would be cool to see Rock and Dinah show up here.

I was also surprised by Ralph's voice at first, but then after I watched it again it worked for me. Ralph seems to be played up as the more serious detective here whereas Plas is the comedian. Like Sherlock Holmes meets Inspector Clouseau. I'd love to see Ralph show up again. (With Sue.) I know Aquaman's voice through me off a bit at first in his original episode, but I loved it tonight.

Besides Batman, I think my favorite voices on the show thus far are Blue Beetle (Jaime), Red Tornado and, once I adjusted to it, Aquaman. Atom was pretty good too as was Wil Wheaton as Ted.

I wondered about Missuer Mallah as well, and figured hey just had too much going on in this episode to include him. Hopefully he'll show up next time. I must admit that after Batman identified the Brain as the baddie, I couldn't get "Pinky & the Brain...Brain...Brain...Brain" out of my head! Random, but there it was all the same...

Some good convos:

Atom- "As the Atom, I can shrink to the size of a sub-atomic particle and ride electrons along the phone wires."
Aquaman- "Do it again!"

Atom- "You don't know what kind of doctor I am, do you?"
Aquaman- "A hero doctor, through and through."

Atom- "That's Batman's cilia you're hanging from."
Aquaman- "Cilia and sillier!"

Aquaman- "This cam't help but remind me of the time I ventured into the belly of a giant squid to retrieve an enchanted pearl needed to save the Falkland Islands."

Atom was a great straight man to Aquaman

They should really do an Aquaman spinoff.

Gotta say that this was another great episode. I was a little disappointed when the Atom wasn't Ray Palmer, but I am ok with that.

I was in Wal-Mart yesterday, picking up cat food, and I saw B:BnB ACTION FIGURES!!! The line they had so far was Bats (natch), Aquaman! Black Manta! BLUE BEETLE!!!! And a couple of Two-Packs with Bats/Manta and Beetle/Kanjar Ro! They looked great, especially the Beetle!

Agreed! I really enjoyed this episode!

And the Plastic Man/Elongated Man opener was hilarious too!

May have been the best episode yet. I LOVE Aquaman on this show, and the Atom made a perfect foil for him.
