The Dark Knight-1960's Style!
 
What I meant is the movie The Dark Knight with the opening of the 1960's TV show, as shown here:

I'd love to hear that the warehouse containing the only copies of the 1960s batman tv series had burned to the ground...

I'd love it if somebody had the guts and imagination to produce a new series in that style, and if the audience had the humor and maturity to appreciate it.

That's outstanding. It makes me want to go watch the 1989 Batman trailer put to the audio from TDK again.

Alternatively, you could always just not watch it or, you know, avoid threads which reference it ...

I like it. Now lets get a cartoon version.

Count me in. Of course, with today's sensibilities, anybody trying would most likely just screw it up.

Why? We've already had it; all that's needed is to put it on video. Nothing more.

Wow, by far one of the best Youtube videos I've ever seen. The attention to detail is incredible. Not just how perfectly the design of the 60s opening titles was re-created, but all the background characters. It took me a few viewings to realize that Maroni, Falcone, Ra's Al Ghul/Ducard, The Chechen, Gambol, Lau, and The Joker's gang of robbers are all there! I love the way The Joker and The Scarecrow look too.

We were discussing a remake.

But I agree with you about the DVD release.

I was talking about a 60's style TDK cartoon. I've seen Brave and the Bold, not my cup o' tea.

I love Brave And The Bold. I didn't realize it was back on. I'll look for it.

But what I think would be really cool would be a live-action show that visually emulates the old Batman series, but not written in a campy style; rather, more in the style of Busiek, Englehart, Thomas et al. I think that would rock. :mallory:
