Mumbo is always welcome but with an added appearance by Mother Mae-Eye this was gold even before the musical number began.

And another year has drawn to a close and while year one stretched four decades from 1941 until 1977, year two of this project spanned a much more condensed period of just five years (1977-81). The first years theme could have been Filmation Nation, but year 2 was all about the Super Friends. Of course, there was a dash of Freedom Force and a splash of Plastic Man for flavor, but the Super Friends were the main course.

Allow me to put on my feminist hat for a minute. I don't put it on too often, but calling Penny, Mrs. Plastic Man is a bit ridiculous. Not only is she an accomplished pilot and crime fighter, but she was a long established character before settling down with Plas. Then again, I doubt Baby Plas is the kids real name either. Plastic Man just has a giant ego. One good thing about this episode was that it sort of had a real villain like in the previous series. Dr. Strangeleaf made a giant, sentient Venus flytrap. But things went downhill fast when Plastic Man seduced it - not that I even understand how he knew what a hot female plant would look like. Some questions are best left unanswered.

40 years in the future, there is a new Batman in town but the same old Man of Steel is still patrolling the friendly skies of Gotham. Of course Kal-El ages gracefully, so he just has a little white hair to match his black and white capeless suit.
Beware the Batman finally has a trailer and with it, a debut date. The CG take on the Dark Knight will arrive as part of DC Nation beginning July 13th, less than a month away. And the series trailer contains a few gems including the first looks at the animation debuts of Anarky and Magpie as well as the non cameo appearances by Professor Pyg and Mr. Toad. Oh joyous day! Apparently we will have to wait a while longer before seeing this series take on the also announced Ra's al Ghul, Katana, and Metamorpho.Check out the images and trailer below.
The Plastic Family went to the Ozarks to compete in a greased pig chase, eating competition, and old fashioned log roll. The only thing missing was Baby Plas going to bed with a bottle of Mountain Dew. If you like low-brow, this might give you a chuckle or two. On the other hand, anyone who thinks this is funny probably doesn't have an Internet.

Just a fun day for the Plastic Family at the zoo until Unko the alien came to capture an antelope for his own interstellar zoo. Did I mention Unko had a shrink ray? This was a pretty bad one... unless you have a soft spot for tiny lions.

A cruise ship seems like a terrible place for crooks to strike. And a lifeboat would make an awfully lousy getaway vehicle. Nevertheless that was the plot of the episode with two bearded thieves posing as grandmas. I suppose it was fairly harmless. Not really a blast, but at least there wasn't any racist humor this time around. Always a plus, but never a guarantee for this series.
