A great end to, lets face it, a really good series.
This might be one of the best episodes of the series. Probably is second only to "Chill of the Night". Breaking the forth wall is what Batmite does, and the episode really goes well with the overall Silver Age campiness that the series was all about. Adding of such obscure characters like Ambush Bug was a real surprise and it was just a delight to see how he interacted with the characters from the show. In reality Batmite represent the part of the watcher that wants a new, grim Batman, while Ambush Bug represents the part that likes the show, its freshness, and wouldn't mind if it went on for a few more seasons. The episode gives a great insight on how a good show gets canceled. The ending of the season, and series, was in a way touching, seeing how Silver Age Batman doesn't yield even to the erasing of his own reality saying that he'll always be there for us, the fans. It retained the Silver Age style and told a serious story that culminated in the last two minutes of the episode. I enjoyed the series, but as it turns out there can't be two Batman shows on at the same time. So, we can just wait for "Beware the Batman" in 2013, which promises a grimmer story but also has what seems to be terrible CGI. Until then we are left with what The Brave and the Bold left behind, and can just ask ourselves if canceling it at the time where we have such CGI shows as "Green Lantern" was a good choice for Cartoon Network and in the end, for the fans ... You had a good run "Brave and the Bold". You shall not be forgotten.
