  • Bat Hound!

    Sorry Batman, but it looks like it is your pet's time to shine. First off adding Bat Hound to the series was a genius act. I have always liked Batman so it's only fair that I like his dog too. Bat Hound is exactly like his master and it shows. The episode featured a very good team up and the bad guys would never stand a chance with these two chasing after them. Between Superdog's strength and power and Bat Hound's utility belt filled with who knows what, you can run, but you can't hide. I give this episode a perfect 10/10.moreless
  • World's Finest... Pets!!

    Bathound and Superdog's cross over remided me alot of Batman's first team up with Superman.

    Paul Dini did a great job writting this episode and I have no complaints about it.

    The dialouge was great and it really showed us how dark Bathound was and his ties to Batman and they seemed alike. Nowonder why Batman calls Bathound Bathound.

    This episode was really perfect. I loved every bit of it.

  • An intro to Ace the Bathound, who actually fits in perfectly to this universe!

    On patrol through the city, Krypto hears a strange sound and sees what he thinks is a bat (a bat-a-rang). He follows it to find a strange dog named Ace the Bathound. After informing him about the Joker's hyenas and how they're in Metropolis, he tells him that he'll call Krypto if he needs any help. After trying to interrogate a rat (Jimmy the rat as he's called), Krypto drops in an gives Ace a little spur in the right direction, and they agree to team up. At the dog show, Bud and Lou, the hyenas, hide amongst the other dogs and wait to strike, unleashing a sleeping gas and stealing the cash prize to the show. But when Krypto and Ace show up, they try and stop them. Of course, taking advantage of Krypto's personality of saving everyone, and Ace's slight overconfidence issue, they manage to escape for a moment. When Krypto and Ace follow them, however, they get stuck on a magnetic flying saucer that is on course for space, which is even too strong for Krypto to break free of. Using his heat vision however, Krypto stops the disk and lands it down on Bud and Lou, and they send them off to Jail (or wherever dogs go when they're criminals).

    I like the intro to Ace. Upon research, you'd find that Bruce Wayne (aka Batman) actually did have a dog named Ace, who helped him in catching criminals, just as you'd discover that Superman had a dog who managed to escape Krypton (though I think the storyline is altered a bit there). Since it all fits, every aspect I see about this episode is good, and it has plenty of action, I'm giving it a 10/10moreless
  • A great episode. This marks the first team-up of Krypto and Ace as they join forces to stop the Joker's hyenas, Bud and Lou.

    Whoa. Awesome episode. That's all I can really and truly say about it. I'm a sucker for the classic "World's Finest" type stories that team-up Batman and Superman, and Krypto and Ace do a great job of reflecting Superman and Batman's respective points of views (though Ace and Krypto end up on somewhat better terms than the humans they represent in this episode are usually shown as being nowadays). They also did a good job introducing the Joker's hyenas to the series. Definitely highly enjoyable villains for the framework of this series. The giant-sized props were a terrific nod to the Silver Age comic book stories (which fits in quite nicely with the obvious almost Silver Age-esqe feel of the series). All in all, a great offering and another of my favorite episodes. :)moreless
