Did anyone else watch this episode Friday night? It stars Neil Patrick Harris as the "Music Meister", a super-villain who can hypnotically control anyone through his singing. This leads to anyone under his control being forced to sing and dance while carrying out his commands.

I normally don't watch this series, but I saw the commercial for the episode and decided to watch it. I was not disappointed with what I saw, the episode will probably get nominated for an Emmy.

Here is a link to the official preview on Cartoon Network's site. You can also see the episode on Youtube, hurry and watch them before the videos are removed.

Just watched it again (and again), and just want to bump note that two things made this episode really legendary. First, during "Drives Us Bats" they mention the Batoosie. @#%^. Yeah.

Second, MM is voiced by Neil Patrick Harris. Refer to first sentence.

What really caught my attention was that, usually when a show resorts to the "Song and Dance" episode, they're just jumping the shark. The show is in decline and they're trying to get old fans' attentions by doing something ridiculous and completely out of the norm for the story. When it comes to Batman, though, this is both ridiculous and completely within the normal parameters for the series.

I don't normally enjoy the Bold and the Brave series; I thought the other two Batman series' were much better. However, this one episode is close, if not beyond, anything those other series did, and that includes the episode where Killer Croc says "So I hit him with a rock," which makes me giggle every. Single. Time.

They also referenced the movie when one of the villains (forgot which one) said he was tough even without shark repellent. Also "Death Trap" was overkill, even for the '60s series of traps.
