    With this show's mix of animals and humans, it's starting to remind me of Chip and Dale's Rescue Rangers and I'm not sure that's a good thing. You might want to ease up on using Lex Luthor, he's a bit over the top in the deliously evil department. Almost a characature.

    I did love the Dog Stars. UFO fire hydrant! Hot dog the weiner dog! Let's see more ot them.

    Er, I'm afraid I'm not quite getting what you're saying here.

    Addressing the Lex thing (partially, at least): Lex has only appeared on-screen in... what, two episodes?

    You would be correct 3starvingartist.  Lex has appeared in "A Bugs Strife" and "Diaper Madness".

    That's what I thought. Thanks for confirming that, Ladsone.

    Why did the artists alter Lex's design so radically from S:TAS? "Caricature" is the right word: he looks almost reptillian. And why is Ignatious so...effette?

    Notice, also, that Isis was a blackish cat (a Russian blue, I believe) in B:TAS, but here she appears to be a Siamese. Do any other villain masters, like Joker, Penguin, or Catwoman ever put in an appearance? Or does the Bat-Embargo apply here?

    At least Lex is still bald. O.o

    No one else ever appears unfortunately. Sad but true.

    I don't like how they have Lex looking in KTSD either. The Telly Savalas(sp?)-esque design he has in S:TAS and JLU was just fine to me. No comment on Iggy.

    Good question. The Bat-Embargo might be why we don't see any famous DC villains or heroes. Wasn't there also a recent Superman-Embargo too, because of the recent film?

    BTW, I have no idea why they made Isis a siamese and didn't keep her B:TAS design.

    It could be a different Isis, that was how many years ago? Cats don't live all that long.

    Good point. I'm not sure of the timeframe that this series is occuring in, but KTSD-Isis could be a new cat.

    Well, I can think of only one instance where I was clearly reminded of CDRR. In the episode 'Streaky's Super Cat Tale' the ploy used by Mechanikat in Streaky's tall-tale is uncannily similar to the one used in the first CDRR episode.

    Actually even though KTSD is thought to be seperate from other shows in the DCAU Paul Dini one of the writers from the show as well as S:TAS B:TAS,etc...stated that Krypto IS part of the rest of the DCAU timeline like S:TAS and JLU.

    But I never said that Krypto was seperate from the other DCAU shows. What I was saying was that perhaps the original Isis Catwoman owned in B:TAS had died sometime ago, and siamese-Isis could be a new one.

    Tho it's interesting to learn that KTSD does indeed belong to the DCAU timeline.

    Don't know if I remeber but I think it was one a DC forum. Someone had posted Paul Dini stated Krypto being part of the DCAU timeline, I think he explained it in an interview about the show and a few other DC comic related series.
