Looks like we're starting to see the transition from the Fontana-era to the Faust-era...

I imagine the other shorts will focus on the other girls, so we might get more VA confirmations if those have credits :).

Hmm, so just a reboot of SBBF's "Time Waits For No Girl". Wonder if the other shorts from that series will be given the DCSHG treatment, too.
I could see them doing a remake of the Supergirl short again, and I guess the Grundy short would be funnier with more characters involved, maybe :p?

I think I read there supposed to be six, so I imagine each short will focus on a different member of the cast :).

Wow, I'm gonna love this continuity!

That was amazing. Great animation and timing and it was actually funny! Although I don't actually need to see Jim Gordon's armpit hairs.

Prediction: This show is going to be a huge hit and sell a ton of merch. Bank on it. *.

This was earlier than expected.

Get To Know: Batgirl | DC Super Hero Girls
Meet Barbara Gordon, A.K.A: Batgirl. She's just moved to Metropolis from Gotham City with her father and is finding it tough to be the new girl in school.
Cool! I wonder if they'll do this for every girl after a Super Short spotlights them :)?

Looks like we get to hear and see a bit of the theme song at the beginning there. Definitely sounds like a pretty pumpin' "girl power" song, just like "Get Your Cape On" :D.

So everything is still set in Metropolis I see :p.

It's fun seeing them empathize Babs being a Batman fangirl here :cool:.

"Sweet Justice" looks like a more Starbucks-esque Capes and Cowls Cafe. Does Steve Trevor still work there ;)?

I wonder if Tara is going to change her Harley voice at all, because her more high-pitched, cutesy, voice for Barbara here is more like her Harley voice...although I guess there's the accent for distinction :sweat:.

She could probably go for a lower register for Harley, much like that Batman short from Justice League : Gods And Monsters Chronicles . Though given the different target audiences for both projects, she'll probably still play her in a clowny manner and not a psycho killer.

I'd personally prefer another either Grey Griffin or Kari Wahlgren playing Harley instead; or even a whole other actress and not just one of cast for the main six (Did I just say that?!) doing double duty.

Not to put a damper on things, but it seems like when it comes to any recent kid friendly series , Tara is the go to voice for Harley. Besides, in the other DCSHG projects, Grey DeLisle Griffin did double duty with Wonder Woman and Giganta , with her doing Lois in the Lego Brain Drain movie, and I don't hear complaints there .

DC Super Hero Girls: Super Shorts "Get To Know Batgirl"

I don't like Tara Strong's take on Batgirl. For the record, I hate her take on Unikitty too.

It's interesting the cadence of the show title is pronounced differently than the Fontana series. There "Girls" is accentuated, while here "Hero" is.

I'll probably like the series when Batgirl isn't talking. ***.

Well, Tara's take on Batgirl here is much like with how she did it on Super Best Friends Forever, where she's bubbly and energetic, as opposed to The New Batman Adventures, where she goes for something more no-nonsense and sarcastic (yet still youthful) due to the more grounded tone. According to tv tropes, she has traits of Stephanie Brown.

Edit: Here is a trailer for Super Sleeper.


While hosting a sleepover, Barbara Gordon discovers that Kara takes sleepwalking to a whole new level when she starts sleep flying.

Well, Steph was exciteable and quippy, but not really like how they're depicting Babs here :sweat:.
So I guess now it's officially "Car-Uh" instead of "Care-Uh" when it comes to pronouncing Supergirl's name :p.

Kryptonian's and their sleeping habits ;).

My guess is that Batgirl's more energetic personality is to make her the Pinkie Pie of this series, which is funny when you consider that Tara Strong auditioned for her before getting Twilight. The fact that Batgirl in this series has a job relating to food and knows a popular sweets place adds to this.

Ya know...I think I'm gonna like this series more. The animation is good, (and will hopefully remain consistent), a lot more slapstick, and the art style is both cute and allow for funny visuals. And it doesn't feel as girly, which will definitely add more broader appeal.
I really hope this takes off. I don't expect MLP levels of hype, but enough to keep this franchise chugging for a long time.

I definitely hope the animation for the show is on-point with these shorts, since so far it looks pretty good :).

It's nice to see them once again emphasizing Batgirl and Supergirl's friendship, even if it causes Babs a little trouble here :ack:.

I wonder if the Kents had this much trouble with Superman growing up :eek:.

It's almost kind of funny to think the girls might have caused more property damage and disturbances then any villains or criminals that night :p.
So Batgirl wants to replace Robin as Batman's sidekick? I wonder if we'll see more of that on the show ;)?
[/QUOTE]
I'm guessing that all these shorts are going to have Batgirl as a main focus.
Was kind of hoping each of the main six would get a chance in the spotlight to be honest :sweat:.

1. Well, it depends on if Batman and Robin will make physical appearances here. I recall Robin being name dropped in "Play Date" on Justice League Action while never actually appearing.

2. It depends on how many shorts we get. For all we know, the main characters could get 2 shorts per character before the series starts.

In regards to today's episode, I forgot to mention something. Who has a sleepover on a school night?

Disney is teaching their child actors now how to handle fame.
Although I did like some of the now dead Jetix block's programming in the past, It did ate up most of Toon Disney's airtime to the point where it felt like it was Vice-Versa which annoyed me when I was younger.
Call me weird, but I seem to prefer The Little Mermaid's series more than the trilogy. I also have a AU in development at Post something random where some characters of the series as well as fictional ones are included.
Apparently John K. is FINALLY finished with 'Cans Without Labels'.
