R.I.P. CARTOON NETWORK WB ANIMATION SCHEDULE?

As of March 27, 2000, Batman: The Animated Series was taken off of the Cartoon Network. Now, coupled with the absence of Batman/Superman on KidsWB next season, it would appear to be virtually impossible to view these episodes.

However, the Cartoon Network has announced that Batman will return in June, possibly in a new format (ie: as The New Batman/Superman Adventures). We’ll provide more informaiton as it becomes available.

APRIL MOON
Story by Stan Berkowitz & James Tucker
Teleplay by Stan Berkowitz
Directed by Butch Lukic
Animation by Dong Yang, Koko
Original Air Date: April 22, 2000
Rating: *** (out of 5)

DESCRIPTION: Batman takes on a group of thieves who have been given artificial body enhancements by a famous doctor.
HIGHS: Attempts to mix several plotlines, Max is kept to a minimum, return to the darker colors.
LOWS: Out-of-place music, hokey looking villains, just plain weird.
OVERALL: This ep is…just…different.

A group of punk kids are given cybernetic enhancements by a known Gotham prosthetics doctor, and use them to commit crimes. The Doc isn’t a willing partner in all this, it turns out that the thieves have kidnapped his wife April and demanded that they be given these upgrades in exchange for her release. When Terry finds out about this, he must defeat the criminals and rescue her.

This episode tried to do a lot of things – it mixed in action, a romantic aspect, unwilling partnerships, and even a betrayal at the end. Some of them were executed better than others, like the partnership and betrayal parts. The doctor’s anger at cooperating with these criminals is very evident, as shown when he breaks down in front of Batman, or when he says “It’s a chance to do some good…for a change”, when leaving the punks.

Max is given a role in this episode, but it’s kept to no more than 30 seconds. Now that’s what she should be there to do, give Terry a quick idea if he needs it, not tagging around with him all the time. Bruce is also present, but his lines are also brief; no more walking Terry through his fights. The colours are also darker in most scenes than in the last few episodes…yes!!

But the above aspects haven’t really been the big thing about this episode. The whole feel of “April Moon” wasn’t the same as the rest of the eps. From the start, there was always a swinging jazz beat in the background, rather than the usual hard techno/rock tunes. For me, it was simply out of place.

And then, the villains just looked kind of hokey, especially one guy who had chainsaws in his knees…it seemed like they were always causing him to get stuck somewhere, although it was funny to see his limbs fall off at the end.

The impact of the romance and other supposedly emotional scenes never really hit me that hard though, it just didn’t feel right…maybe it was the music. It kind of felt like a cheesy film-noir deal, which isn’t what I’m looking for in BB. And they had little swirling blurs when the Doc went into a flashback…since when did we see THAT on this show?

In the end, I’m still not sure what to say on this episode. I’d still hold it above any of those teen-angst eps any day. It’s different to be sure, but too much deviation can alter the concept originally set. If I was looking for lightheartedness I’d watch Superman (the early ones anyway), know what I’m saying? I have a feeling this was just a “experimental” sort of deal, now I’d like to return to watching some darker material.

‘UNDER THE KNIFE’ – BATMAN BEYOND UK CUT REPORTS
-by Brian Davis

Batman Beyond is called Batman of the Future in the UK. It is shown on CITV Sundays at 9.25am and they make a lot of cuts !!!! Brian Davis uncovers these cuts and lets the public know how good BB episode are being butchered in the UK.

This week: “SPLICERS”

I have Splicers from an american video which I bought so I can report cuts now. From now on I’ll be reporting cuts the following Friday when BB airs in Ireland. OK….

A good few small cuts this week :

1- Why was Cuviers claw all covered in blood when he hardly touched Batman? Well, that’s because if it was left uncut we’d see Cuvier say to Batman ‘Young’s dead meat and so are you’, he then claws Batman a few times as Batman tries to dodge him and finally flys off out through the window.

2- Why did Barbara say ‘You’re killing him’ when they were fighting in her house? That’s cause Batman hits the mutant a lot of times and we hear a lot of crunches. That was cut.

3- In the cave when Batman turns to a bat there is a lot more fighting. He lifts Ace and throws the poor doggy through the glass of the Robin costume into it. We also see The Riddlers costume in the background and there is more of Batman trying to kill Bruce who then takes the antidote gun and shoots Batman with it where he falls to the floor knocked out. All we see is Batman grab Bruce and he then myteriously falls to the floor.

4- We see more of the claw left by Cuvier in Terry’s side when Bruce notices it.

5- Not sure if this was cut or not but Snake digs his teeth right into Batmans shoulder in the final mutant fight scene.

6- More violence in the Cuvier as a Chimera scene.

7- The Chimera getting electrocuted bit was slowed down due to fast light effects.

That’s it for next week. I advise everyone to get an aerial that picks up irish TV and watch on Fridays.

These are only the cuts I have cared to notice, who knows what other episodes and scenes have been butchered. Each Batman is supposed to last just under 20 minutes. With CITV we are getting between 15 and 17 minute episodes !!

Next week is Earth Mover and I hear there are corpses at the end of it. Think we’ll see em ??

COMIC REVIEWS
(BATMAN: GOTHAM ADVENTURES by Tim “TWO-FACE” Leighton)
(BATMAN BEYOND by Tim “TWO-FACE” Leighton)
(SUPERMAN ADVENTURES by Dick Grayson)

BATMAN BEYOND
ISSUES: “Vendetta” (#8)
WRITTEN BY: Hilary J. Bader & Rich Fogel
PENCILLED BY: Craig Rousseau
INKED BY: Rob Leigh
ISSUED: April 26, 2000 (cover date, June 2000)
RATING (out of 5): **1/2

If there’s one thing that Issue #8 succeeded in, it is this: Blight may never return in the series (sigh), but his legacy will live on forever. Unfortunately, I feel that this issue does not do any of the characters justice. I was hoping that this issue would start to tie up the loose ends Derek Powers’ death created; I was wrong.
Paxton is hardly as ruthless and snake-like as he was in “ASCENSION”. There’s nothing wrong with Bruce and Terry, per se, but they hardly grab my interest here. Miss Winston gets more dialogue than she EVER has in history up to this point; her character development is interesting, but needs a lot more explaining to do. I guess I’ll accept the fact that she “caught” Powers’ disease from working with him so closely so often, and I’ll accept the fact that she had feelings for him all these years; I suppose it makes sense that she wants to keep Paxton from inadvertantly destroying Wayne-Powers in order to retain Derek’s legacy.
What I don’t like is how she uses her powers and then manages to retain them; this is never explained. Whenever she’s fighting someone, her body is HUGE – just look at the first few pages of the book – but when she’s in the board room, she’s petite and demure – a physical female Bruce Timm typecast. We never see HOW she can change – we are never even told that she can to transform from one to the other – we just have to take her word for it. It SEEMS that it has to do with her glasses, though – it’s a freaky radiation-induced Clark Kent/Superman thing or something…
The art is still great as always. I never have any complaints there. Rousseau and Leigh are terrific. It’s just the story – as always – which I scrutinize the most and, unfortunately, as great the potential was, the story just never develops into something terribly memorable.
