B:TB&tB episode 19 B:TB&tB episode 19

B:TB&tB episode 19 "Legends of the Dark Mite!" Directed by Ben Jones.

By this point on Brave and Bold, we already have had plenty on Easter eggs hidden within our show. In this episode however, Bat-Mite had that egg laying rabbit working overtime. Not only did this episode have our usual nods to Silver Age comic covers and stories, but there were nods to "Batman: The Animated Series", Frank Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns", Adam West, cameos from members of our crew, and two Comic Con attendees that look suspiciously like Bruce Timm and Paul Dini (who also wrote the episode). I think one of the sharpest left turns that Bat-Mite took viewers to was an homage of Bob Clampett's classic, "The Great Piggy Bank Robbery". If you have never seen "The Great Piggy Bank Robbery", do yourself a favor - stop reading this and watch it right now!:
