We’ve been watching lots of the DC Nation Shorts lately – They’re one or two minute cartoons, produced by Warner Bros and appearing on Cartoon Network. Some of them are more serious, like this super stylish new release, featuring Shade, the Changing Man (which just so happens to be designed and animated by my pal Joey Mason!) but most of them are kind of silly and funny.
My personal favorite of course, is Super Best Friends Forever! Created by Lauren Faust, Super Best Friends Forever is a series of shorts about Wonder Girl, Batgirl and Supergirl joining together to fight crime. Batgirl is voiced by Tara Strong, who you may also know as Twilight Sparkle, Bubbles, Timmy Turner and Raven from Teen Titans Go! Basically, what’s not to love?
I love the way that the characters are designed, and that they’re shown as both powerful, strong, fun AND feminine (in an appropriately teenage way.)
Sadly, the series seems to be finite and there are only five episodes. I’m sure I’m not the only one who would love to see this spin-off into its own series.
