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.
What Dusty said. You should check it out.
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.
I don't think Brave and the Bold is back yet.

Could you emulate the visual style of the old series and NOT be campy? I'm trying to picture that....

Re: The Dark Knight-1960's Style!

Just by doing it. Just imagine an issue of Avengers by Englehart and Perez brought straight to live action without any mainstreaming. The old Green Hornet almost did it, but that character is more straight crime drama, without the colorful opponents or fantastic storylines. Pushing Daisies was also along the lines of what I'd like to see; it was a great mix of humor and drama and psychedelia (they even used Claymation a couple of times).

I'll see if I can find out when Brave And The Bold will be back.
