Crisis of Infinite Episodes - MAD Presents That's What Super Friends Are For

Yes, by now I feel that the MAD presents shorts are coming too frequently. At least the shorts selected have been among MAD's best, but I hope its a few weeks before another one gets picked. Another problem I had with this particular short is that nearly half the running time was trimmed from the original short for the DC Nation airing. In the original, before the song began Batman was ordering Plastic Man to get him a drink and he couldn't even remember his name. The context makes the song a bit funnier.

I did actually like the short overall with its Jib-Jab style presentation. The song was funny, the dancing was silly, and best of all I enjoyed seeing so many of the Leaguers. I especially liked seeing Kyle Rayner in his classic GL garb. The entire roster included Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, Plastic Man, Black Lightning, Red Tornado, Aquaman, Martian Manhunter, Zatanna, Doctor Mid-Nite, Green Lantern Hal Jordan, Black Canary, Green Arrow, Doctor Fate, Cyborg, Blue Beetle, Captain Marvel AKA Shazam!, Booster Gold, Fire, Ice, Captain Atom, Power Girl, Animal Man, Elongated Man, Green Lantern Kyle Rayner, Flash Barry Allen, Robin, Hawkman, Nightwing, Flash Wally West, Flash Jay Garrick, Kid Flash.
