Super sleuths Scooby-Doo, Shaggy, Fred, Daphne and Velma join forces with the world’s greatest detective, Batman, when they discover that villains from both of their respective rogues’ galleries have also combined efforts to terrorise the city.For many, myself included, Batman: The Brave & The Bold is the greatest Batman cartoon of all, and the ongoing Scooby-Doo Team-Up comic, which pairs Mystery Inc with assorted DC characters, treads a similar path.
With Scooby snacks in tow, the crime-fighting teams encounter classic Batman foes (Joker, Catwoman, Riddler, Penguin, Scarecrow, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn) and allies (The Question, Aquaman, Plastic Man, Martian Manhunter) along with a bevy of fiends from Scooby-Doo lore (Spooky Space Kook, Gentleman Ghost, Miner 49er, Ghost Clown).
As always, you won’t know who the ultimate villain is until those “meddling kids” pull off the mask!
So, to bring the two successful recipes together in a 75-minute, direct-to-DVD, movie is a winning formula.
Scooby-Doo & Batman: The Brave And The Bold is available, in the UK, on February 26.
