What the heck is DC SUPERFRIENDS and where can we see more?

Fisher Price makes a pretty popular line of toddler action figure sets under the Imaginext label that includes quite a few Superhero branded varieties.  They make a Batcave and a Green Lantern playset and the Joker’s lair and also apparently a cartoon.

Some of the Imaginext sets now come with a DVD of something called the DC Superfriends.  A quick Google search produced the following video:

That is just about the craziest thing I have never heard of before. This is an almost frame by frame recreation of the classic old Superfriends cartoon right down to the narrator’s delivery! How crazy is that?

Not as crazy as what I found next.  Embedded below is the first half of an actual episode and it’s actually pretty good. Don’t misunderstand me – this is not like the Bruce Timm era Justice League – nor the tongue in cheek take on the DC universe ala Batman Brave and the Bold; this is a super kid friendly homage to the classic versions of these characters – and it’s fun! Check it out and see if you don’t agree.

So what’s the deal? Is this going to be a series? I’ll check it out and let you know . . .

Calmixx is the Pseudonym of New York Artist/Writer Brian Mc- - HEY wait a minute. Why have a cool Pseudonym if you're just gonna tell people it's a Pseudonym? Yeah you can just call me Calmixx for now. Maybe if we have a third date I'll give up the last name but not without dinner. Check out my silly little blog and let me know what you think. Because I care. I really do. Really. Honest. Sorta.
