Kids WB! goes away at the end of this season

A couple of tidbits from the "Batman: The Animated Series" realm ...

The network that once aired the original episodes is gone. The Kids WB!, a popular Saturday-morning outlet for children's programming for the WB network, has gone the way of the WB network, actually.

Since the WB merged with CBS / UPN last year and became the CW network, now the Kids WB! is also going away. Variety has reported that children's programming for the CW will be handled by 4Kids, and it will be geared more toward preschoolers. The Kids WB!, which was on the air for 12 years, will officially end at the close of the current 2007-2008 season. We don't know what that means for the current "B: TAS" heir, "The Batman," however.

And, in the "spotted around the Web" department ... this YouTube user has a brief collection of cringe-worthy moments from our beloved Bat-series. Click on over to and behold some lines and animation maneuvers that were slightly less than par, in this viewer's opinion, on the 1990s Warner Bros. series.
