Gotham High AKA The Cartoon Bullet We Thankfully Dodged

You can say a lot of things about how Warner Brothers handles their DC heroes when they are adapted for kid's cartoons, but today, we got a look at a project that would never be and sigh in great relief. That project is called Gotham High.

"We all go through incredible changes as teenagers: growth spurts, bad skin, a sudden insatiable need to uphold justice and avenge your murdered parents…. Well, that is if you’re Bruce Wayne.
As if being a freshman at Gotham High wasn’t tough enough, Bruce’s insomnia and technological fascinations are taking their toll. Instead of spending his time studying, he has begun to obsess over an emerging personality trait: Batman. But under the watchful eye of his guardian and steward, Alfred Pennyworth, Bruce is forced to put his intelligence to good use: graduating high school. But given his classmates, can Bruce survive Gotham High?"

Ug. Just...awful. Teen Batman dealing with the ups and downs of being a mixed up kid with raging hormones while questioning his yearning to be THE BATMAN and ...doing what with his evil classmates? Fighting them when they steal test answers? Doing battle on the dodge ball court?? Outwitting The Riddler as he attempts to rig the home coming king voting???!!! Blek. Have a laugh at the cool but still horrible images for this prospective show.


  1. words do not convey how wrong this is. I hope someone got fired.

  2. Love the art. Despise the idea. Stick with the sidekick show coming out.

  3. Hey guys? 1998 called; they want their look back.
